    I came back because they're decent rooms in the city at a good rate.Problem is waited 2 hours for the rooms to be finished, reception has poor English and shocking service. The people let this place down

    Stayed there last week for three nights. Good: central location, good tariffs, attached bar with a good selection of food, breakfast, clean rooms. Bad: rooms were incredibly small, bar was a late opener and early closer, breakfast range is very limited.

    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

    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
