Great Hotel with Great Staff in Great Location
The location of this hotel is centrally located to many restaurants and shopping area. The room size is very good and cleanliness is superb. The receptionist was very accommodating and customer oriented. We arrived in the hotel at 9am due to our early flight arrival and we were given one out of the two rooms I have booked instead of letting us wait for the standard check-in time at 2pm. I wish remember the name of the lady in the reception. I will definitely go back to this hotel whenever I am in Melbourne.

6/10 Good

I didn’t like the lift as it took a while. I didn’t like the front desk during checkout as staff didn’t handle well as I requested late checkout at 5pm with an agreement of charging additional $100/ , then staff wanted to charge full day . Then I pushed have to push back as it was agreed during checking in. I liked the concierge’s staff as they are very helpful and friendly.

Comfortable Hotel
Very Comfortable room, slept well in the Bed, very Clean. Reception friendly and helpful, the restaurant was ok with the $25 vouchers provided by the hotel, wouldn't be worth the none discount amount, too expensive at night for the type of restaurant it is, staff were friendly though. Overall, a good Hotel to stay at for the week we were there.
