      Value for money. Its a decent apartment, clean bed and towel. Some of the kitchen utensil are not clean. Like the cooking pot look burned and dirty, stained on plates, spoon. If you are looking for basic, this is a good place to stay. There is 7-eleven around the corner and a minimart. 3 mins walk to Queens Victoria Market.

      After reading mixed reviews, I wasn't really sure to book the hotel, but I took my chances. My room was really clean and tidy. Bed sheets were clean. Has Kitchenette which has microwave, utensils, coffee machine, coffee and tea provided with milk, cutlery, glasses, mini refrigerator with freezer, and any other amenities. Includes towels and bathroom amenities. Wall plugs are not international, so you would need international travel adapter for Australia. Has a mini Balcony to stand. Split ductless Air Conditioner worked great with remote provided. Very Close to queen Victoria market just 5-7 minutes walk for all your shopping needs (including wide variety of Souvenirs) and cheap and delicious food including fresh fruit and vegetables. It falls in the free Tram Zone. Just a quick 5 minute walk from the tram stop. Computer table along with ample of closet space including mulitiple shelfs, iron and ironing table. Restroom has shower with instant hot water. Hair Dryer also provided.

      You pay for what you get!”

      I have stayed with Nova Stargate for a couple of times. I feel that for the price you pay, it's worth the money. Melbourne Central is just 5 minutes away on foot and you can find all sorts of cuisine. My only criticism is the cleanliness, where you can see some stains on their kitchen utensils and some rust on their electric kettle. However, staff were very attentive when I asked them to change the kettle.

      I booked this for a city catch up with a friend. We were both impressed by the size of the room. It was the cheapest option I found in the city and my expectations were low. I was pleasantly surprised, the size was great. Plenty of room for two people. Everything was clean and well presented. Not luxury maybe, but definitely not bad. I was surprised to find out we had a balcony as well. Due to construction works it’s not the best view but a perk none the less. My friend and I only used the room for the bed and bathroom, and only for the single night but there was kitchen facilities. You could cook in the room if you wanted to. The storage was way more than we expected. If you are staying for a while and have lots of luggage then it would be handy. The bed was very spacious. Again, another pleasant surprise. Considering the quality we got for the price, I would recommend. The location maybe isn’t as central as some would like but it’s by no means out of the way.

      Good bed down location. ”

      If you are visiting Melbourne to see Melbourne (not to sit in your room all day) than it's a really good place to bed down: I recommend. The per night rates are similar to serviced apartments in Gold Coast and Brisbane, but rooms are smaller. However, the room size is comparable and rates are affordable when you compare it to other accommodation in Melbourne CBD (Excluding back packers/shared accommodation). I read a lot of bad reviews on cleanliness and wear & tear. Perhaps those people confused this place with the Hilton or some other 5 star facility. Cleanliness was as average as I've ever seen anywhere else in serviced apartments. Same goes for the wear & tear of furniture and of the apartment itself. Staff was friendly, straight to the point and caused me no issues. Towels are changed & bins are emptied every morning (uncommon).

      If you're after a simple room near the city centre for a good price, then you can't get much better than Nova Stargate. Close to restaurants, public transport and only 15 min into the heart of the city. Not the most up to date hotel in the world, but you get what you paid for. It was mainly clean - the bathroom was a little rundown - but more than adequate. The check in people were great and I'd stay here again.

      all you need is there. a car park for additional 20 AID per night, iron and board, safety box, small kitchen area to prepare breakfast, shower with nice pressure, daily cleaning, small balcony. Ask for or room not facing the main road, opposite is a backpackers and the guys stay out on the street and can be noisy sometimes.
