Large older style room somewhat comfortable. Disappointing that wifi was extra and that there was an extra charge to clean your room. We stayed 4 nights. Restaurant in hotel was ok, staff very polite and friendly but the hotel should not be rated 4 star

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next

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.
