    Ideally located on Spencer Street, with the train a short 2 minute walk and trams outside the door. Everything is either within walking distance or a short public transport ride. Quiet, clean and friendly service. Rooms priced according the services you want and require.

    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

    Yes, $50 is charged to your credit card, and supposed to be canceled on departure. 3.5weeks later, I'm still fighting for my refund, and staff are very unhelpful.
