    On Site Guaranteed Car Parking was essential for us which this hotel delivered on but it was evident when leaving that there was not ample parking for all hotel patrons if required so next time I would check not just assume. Our King Superior Room was extremely generous and the bed was beyond expectations in comfort. Check in and Check out were fast. Couldn't hear other people in rooms around, above or below us. Late Check out of 11am was a bonus.

    We were on the 4th Floor and when it came to check out on Sunday Morning the lifts were full by the time they got to our floor from floors above and we had to wait for ever to catch a near empty lift.

    location is good, close to china town.

    the double room is small, was only about 20 square meters. facility inside and outside the room was too old. internet charge was too expensive, about 30 aud per day. I asked morning call and they didn't call at all, twice. the room was not seriously cleaned in the morning, I can still see paper scraps on the floor when I return to hotel in the evening. the stay was simply not very pleasure in this hotel.

    Fabulous

    We enjoyed the ease of parking, the friendly atmosphere of the bar.

    Check out at 7.30 am was slow and frustrating, we waited 15 minutes to check out.To see who we presume was a manager, constantly appear from the office behind the desk to collect some papers and not even acknowledge the waiting guests was poor. The only person at the desk serving the guests was wearing a "training badge". She was also trying to help (seat) guests requiring breakfast. A short time later another person appeared to assist. Our stay was enjoyable, however these issues will cloud our thoughts of returning. Martin and Pam Hinchliffe

    Location, good taste in decor, comfortable bed

    Poor cleaning staff, we were in a Superior room (supposedly) the floor was not vacummed, the guest information books were covered in sticky residue, black grease marks on the smoke detector, mark on the wall. Bar fridge had orange juice set hard undermeath bottle of juice in fridge. hallways not vacumed, scuff marks all along hallways. Paint foot prints on carpet in the lift. Looked like painting had been done very roughly. Shocking presentation of rooms hallways and rooms that have so much potential to look amazing if cleaned to Hotel standards.

    Central location

    The booking via the internet got mixed up - I ordered a twin room and on arrival got a double, but the staff managed to sort it out. I would have been annoyed if the only solution had been a folding bed.

    Fabulous

    We were upgraded to an executive room which was clean & had everything we needed. The staff were all very friendly & helpful. Breakfast had a good selection.

    The bed could have been another 6 inches longer.

    the room was clean - had been upgraded to king bed and had a nice outlook over to the church.

    On arrival they had our booking, but not a room allocated. The room allocated unfortunately was really noisy from the street below.

    Location is the best for our needs, close to Bourke St Mall, Melbourne Central and not far to free city tram. Good restaurants close by. Aso Princess heatre & Her Majesty's Theatre a short walk.

    Rooms are little dated, last stay our room was quite small and dark, needed to use lights during the day. Constant noise from water pipes in adjoining bathrooms.
