            The security of the apartments.

            You had only one good staff. The others were not helpful and rude.

            It had a microwave and sink - very handy. Was close to Queen Victoria Markets. Also close to tasty Asian restaurants - fresh food, tasty, good prices.

            Bed wasn't overly comfortable but ok.

            The view was good from our window, good natural light and all rooms have a balcony, some bigger than others, depending on the room you book. The room was very clean and tidy, and peaceful, even at night. There is a safe in all rooms, which is great, and the security for the building is fantastic too, with a swipe card to enter the building and lift. The road is off the main Elizabeth St, so is a lot quieter, which was great. The facilities were very good as it was an appartment, so had microwave, toaster, crockery etc. Ensuite was great too. Bed comfy. Handy to lots of things, and Melbourne Central train stn is just a short stroll away, and trams at end of street, a 2 min. Walk! Loads of shops to go shopping. Would stay there again definately. Great value.

            The air con did not warm up. But the book there explains about it, and how it can take 30 mins. To get to correct temp, so may not of operated it properly? It did not matter, as we went out for dinner anyway, and straight into bed after we got back. Also the tv pic was cutting out a bit on some channels,but that did not bother us, as we only stayed for one night.

            The hotel is centrally located and close to trams and Queen Victoria Markets. I feel quite safe when walking the block from the tram.

          • Single
            10.0

            The easy access (eg not having to drop keys at reception when going out). The location is top notch - a block to Queen Vic Markets in one direction and a block in the other gets you to the cafes in Melbourne Central. A further couple of minutes walk gets you right into the centre of town. Convenient tram stop at the corner as well, so easy to go everywhere.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            location was great, hotel amentities were not the best - the blinds were broken and there was way to much light to sleep budget style sleeping

          • Single
            6.2

            Reasonable value for money, fair sized room, clean and not too far from CBD etc. Secure access etc.

            Double bed was two single bases pushed together with obvious gap when you slept on it. No satellite TV which was a bit cheap for a hotel aiming a bit above budget. Slightly seedy location.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Please write at least 15 words The location was close to Vic Market and other city attractions and the Hotel was secure. We also found parking near the hotel at no cost on Saturday night and Sunday morning.

            quite and relaxed,just what I needed at the time

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Able to store luggage and entry security.

            Towels weren't changed daily & television was old and hard to tune channels. Picture had interference and sound issues.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            So close to the markets, the theatre, the free tram, the shops. Perfect position.

            A blind in the room was broken.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            I found the staff friendly and polite and when we had a problem with the safe they were helpfull. The room was nice and clean and it was great to have a kitchenette.

            It was a little bit pricey for one night's accommodation.
