"gross"
I actually killed a cockroach in my bed. good thing they screwed up my reservations and gave my 2 beds. the walls were gross, the toilet paper roll was clearly not new, no parking, 10am check out with a $10/hr charge until 1pm?

"Not a very pleasant stay"
When I arrived the hotel garage was full so I had to spend an extra $63 to pay to park in a nearby garage which was filthy. They put me in an "under contruction" area that had an open skylight with puddles of rainwater everywhere.

Cool, newly remodeled rooms. Location adjacent to train station and 10 - 20 min walk to anything. Shower had variable hot water, which may be part of the remodeling.

I have stayed in youth hostels that were cleaner and cheaper than this. I stayed in a 'business room' i think it came up on the website as a superior double. There was nothing superior about this room. Old furniture and carpet, stained and looked dirty. Crusty white stains on the woolen blanket and left over black hair from the previous visitor was on the pillows. The shower was modern and clean but the shower head meant that you never got water all over you. The water was more like a light spray and didn't reach your feet. Horrendous for washing hair. The window in the room was blocked out with opaque frosting but not enough to block the light of the street lamp. Very old wooden bed that creaked and matching old matress that you sunk into. They charge $2 for leaving bags I never experienced this not being included in even a hostel price. The check in staff were friendly but this hotel is dirty and run down. Will not stay here again

Room was tiny and in poor repair with broken fixtures and non-functioning TV. Internet was available in the lobby for $6 per hour, but the service provider ("Net Kiosk") has terribly slow and unresponsive machines that were quite a ripoff for the money. Hotel staff claim to have contacted the Internet vendor, but such lousy service has no place in a modern travel environment, and should not be tolerated for any length of time. On the positive side, this hotel had the lowest rate in Melbourne, was right across the street from the main rail station ("Southern Cross"), and offered clean and quiet rooms. For a solo traveler it was a good value, but not appropriate for couples or family.

Staying in a budget single room I found the bathroom light and spacious which was really nice and the room cosy. The staff could have been a little more friendly and welcoming - they do their job but could do better. The cost for wifi is appalling so I went elsewhere otherwise very hand to Southern Cross station and great to go by foot or tram to other parts of city. Overall fine. I do think its pricey but again Melbourne is expensive as a city.

"Looking tired"
The room we stayed in was old and in desperate need of a paint. The lift was slow and inadequate. $50 for 2 days parking but was blocked in and at night needed staff to open which took 10 minutes. However for a night or 2 at the price was fine. Great location.

"Big Slap for GSH. Great place to stay!"
We booked the hotel because the offer came up on line. I hadn't been in that region for decades and I was not expecting a real lot. But I was very pleasantly surprised with everything. The building the staff the room and the amenities. We will certainly book the hotel again. The room was spacious and the shower was piping hot! I give this hotel a gong.

"Not a bad place to stay"
Our stay at the Great Southern was very pleasant. It is situated in a good spot, close to the venue where we had to work, with plenty of places close for something to eat. The staff were very friendly, but the wifi was a bit expensive. Parking was also a problem the first night we stayed, had to park 1km away from the hotel. It would be better if you could book a parking space when you book your room.

Pleasant staff & adequate room except shower was for a midget, door should open outwards. Noisy neighbourhood & some parts of hotel such as stairs need a makeover. My booking said I had a bath, but only shower available. Water supply shared with neighbouring rooms maybe as I would run out or hot or cold water temporarily.

"Low budget"
We phoned ahead to ask how to access the carpark but when we arrived 5 minutes later we were told it as full (could have told us on the phone). The person on reception mumbled a lot and it was hard to understand him. The room didn't feel clean and there were a lot of loose hairs stuck on the fluffy blanket from previous occupants. Don't think we will be back. $75 for 3 nights parking was steep (they found a space) and to be charged 1.1% to use a savings account with Eftpos was a surprise!

"quite an okay hotel for its price in Melbourne CBD"
For the price, this hotel is a super good value for money. The condition of the room is quite good, and ours was quite spacious (not sure of other rooms). The furniture is modern, and the amenities are complete. There's a bit of a drawback in terms of cleanliness though, like pieces of hair on my bed sheet, pillow cover and blanket (certainly not ours judging from the colours and the fact it's there since we came in). The hallway is built in a strange way, that all voices from random guests will just echo and I can hear every single word of what everyone says in the corridor from my room. Overall, I'm quite pleased with my stay, and won't complain much for the price.
