    It was close to good transport links and great for the solo traveller

    Very good

    Great location - walking distance from station and nightlife at Crown casino. Room was well appointed by euro standards but spartan by American standards. Little extras such as coffee machine in lobby and massage chairs were appreciated.

    Wifi will not work with iPhone or iPad because it relies on using a pop up window to monitor usage. Will likely become a non-problem when Apple releases OS4 for its devices. Download limits in Ausralia ensure that free wifi does not exist anywhere in public places.

    All staff excellent, friendly and helpful. Good lighting in the room which is unusual. (Many hotels assume that their residents do not read). Bed and pillows comfortable. Everything worked. Good breakfasts.

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel very convenient to Southern Cross Station, Telstra Dome and Docklands. Just a short tram trip to centre of Melbourne. Would happily use this Hotel again.

    Would have loved the bar downstairs to be open on weekends.

    The staff were most helpful and informative. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The trams almost outside the door made travelling round the city very easy.

    The Hotel was in a great location in the Melbourne CBD. It was close to trams and the Southern Cross Station. The rooms were not noisy even though we were on a main street. The staff were very helpful and the restaurant cooked a great dinner (the young chef was tremendous under pressure on Thursday nite)

    Fabulous

    environmental attributes, friendly & efficient staff, restraunt food, size not too large and sterile but had a nice intimate feel.

    Exclusive

    Very obliging staff - even finding a nearby Medical Centre for me - nothing seemed too much trouble, fast and attentive and I felt that I was actually an important person to them - ie. they treated me as a human being. Outstanding service, lovely quiet ( unusual in a busy city) , clean and smart rooms and great location. Perfect in every way - I would highly recommend it as a very reasonably priced, friendly, quiet, lovely place to stay while visiting Melbourne.
