This is a real find in the heart of Melbourne.

I was pleasantly surprised by this accomodation. It was so quiet, which was amazing considering it is on Swanston Street. My room was huge with a very comfortable bed, couch, dining setting and good LCD TV. The bathroom was clean and with plenty of hot water. There was a fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making facilities. Very close to Flinders Street...

This hotel really exceeded expectations, however it's great location also results in a lot of noise from the street below. We were on the 3rd floor and bought ear plugs on the first day. This was enough to ensure a good nights sleep. The room was quite large but basic, with friendly staff and a great location this is a...

Stayed here four times during 2016. Great place to stay on the corner of Collins and swanston street, right in the centre of the city. Friendly helpful staff. Walking distance to the theatres and great restaurants.

This was a 'quick pick' for a one night stay and we were very glad that we chose it. Central, comfortable and value for money - what more could you ask for? The receptionist was lovely and we all scored a good nights sleep - unusual for us! Definitely recommend.

Location is one off the best for those who are on tight schedule. Federation square lot of eatries and supermarkets are nearby. Two metro stations very close which one can use to tour the city. Rooms were of descent size. Though entry is bit small but one can easily identify it.

A basic room at a very cheap price worked well. Room had windows on to Swanson Street, but like the walls they were quite thin and noise travelled. The room had the basic essentials and everything worked as it should, so can't complain too much for the price.

Good, cheap, basic, clean, central accommodation. While not huge, was amazed at how large the room was, 2 single beds, small lounge and coffee table. There was a small area between the bathroom and bedroom, which had a bench equipped with, toaster, kettle, cups, plate, knife, coffee and tea, with fridge underneath. Could easily miss the entrance, as there is...

Have stayed a few times due to its good location, very central. Handy to restaurant's, shops, and public transport. Everything you need was in the apartment. Very clean and tidy. For an affordable price, this hotel had everything I needed - bed, ensuite, tv, fridge, tea/coffee facilities..... Ok, the decor is just a little outdated but that is hardly worth...

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
