Close to Southern Cross Station. However, we will recommend people to choose the room with outside window not face to internal building. Staff are nice and friendly. Thank you.

    Exactly what we needed! ”
    Great location, very close to Southern Cross train station, trams, Melbourne Aquarium, DFO and more! Room was exactly what I needed for a 1 week stay. House keeping is not included and you will need to pay extra (this is so that bookings can be cheaper!) but since we were out almost all day, we didn't need the extra service. Clean place and room with friendly and professional staff.

    Hotel was good they helped us to early check in also but at last day they gave us wrong information for airport. They show us there is transport from Elizabeth street but there was no any option to go to airport from Elizabeth Street. The airport Skyline was infrontnof hotel but we were almost missed the flight but at last we took a taxi and didn’t miss the flight.

    There’s a bedbugs on our bed, my wife and I got bitten by bedbugs, I’ve reported to the reception and the lady there ordered the house keeper to replace the bed linen but the night after they’ve changed the bed linen there’s still bedbugs so I think they have to steam clean the entire room.

    This hotel is in a perfect location for travelers arriving by Sky Bus in Melbourne. Just a few steps over Spencer Street, and find the Great Southern hotel. Close to tram stops on Spencer Street, Collins Street and Flinders Street and the train from Spencer street station make it easy to get wherever you want to go in Melbourne. Easy to get to the MCG, and Crown casino, making this hotel a perfect base in Melbourne. I'vestayed many times, and will stay there again.

    The Great Southern Hotel is close to Southern Cross Station and public trams. The casino is a short walk away, as are DFO shops. I have stayed here frequently when visiting Melbourne. The staff are very helpful and there are a lot of information pamphlets available in the foyer about local attractions.

    SKIP THIS HOTEL IF YOU CAN ”
    The Hotel gives a whole new meaning to hospitality by throwing plenty of shocks and loading hidden costs viz. : 1. The hotel web-page at time of booking says "unlimited internet" but in reality when you check-in; it is >> FREE upto 0.50mbps, (which is insufficient to even access email); $5 upto 5mbps and $10 upto 20mbps ! 2. Restricted housekeeping means no housekeeping at all. You pay upto $ 20 for cleaning room. They do not even remove garbage ! Even if you beg housekeeping staff to clear the garbage, they make a face and their stock reply is : "this is not my room". 3. Staff (other than wishing guests 'good morning...' ) are most unhelpful and are trained to convey the message loud and clear to guests that >> "hotel is always right" ! They don't even attempt 4. Although location is good, the space outside the hotel entrance is filled with pavement dwellers. 5. I made a grave mistake of booking the room for 10 days & paying 100% advance with no cancellation refund.
