Bargain hotel at good location
Great location. Old hotel needing maintenance but we liked based on price and location as it is walking distance to downtown. Bad Wifi

Budget Buy
The room is dated but the bed is comfortable. The living room is spacious with a 32-inch flat screen TV and a small square table with 2 chairs. The kitchenette (microwave and fridge included) is a bonus. The bathroom is tiny and needs some work, it has a broken hairdryer (the same situation in other rooms). There is a laundry area (with washer/dryer) near the stairs where you can also iron your clothes. Pros: (1) staff is friendly and helpful, (2) it is near MCG and train/tram stations, (3) 7-Eleven and a few restaurants are just around the corner, and (4) it is inexpensive . . . the Hilton Hotel across the street costs three times more . . . just in case you need to upgrade. Cons: (1) the front desk has nobody on duty after 5:30 pm, (2) no elevator, (3) no alarm clock/phone in the room, (4) limited parking, and (5) part of the closet in the room is occupied by a water heating system using a small water tank, which means you can’t enjoy a long shower.

Excellent Location and Great Price
I had a very enjoyable experience while staying at the George Powlett Apartments. This was my first trip to Australia. I was in Melbourne for an eight day trip to attend AIDS 2014 Melbourne in late July 2014. The hotel is very convenient to downtown. It is located in East Melbourne just steps away from the 70 and 75 tram stops on Wellington Parade, as well as the Jolimont Metro stop across from the MCG. The property is well maintained. The kitchenette apartments are a decent size and offer refrigerator, microwave oven, flatware and silverware. The rooms are very clean but there is NOT daily housekeeping service. The housekeepers will change the towels daily but the room was not "cleaned" daily. That was not a problem. The bathroom is decent sized. The only trick--and I'm an American--was trying to determine "how" to turn on the shower. There is FREE wifi throughout the hotel. I was able to run my iPad, iPhone and BlackBerry simultaneously. One slight drawback: The front desk is not staffed 24/7. The clerk was available throughout 6P or 7P. But there is an electronic code to open the door after hours. Oh and the price is phenomenal! I plan to return soon to Melbourne and will likely stay here again.

Okay for Budget family Trip
Stayed 2 weeks plus and would say good for family to stay in budget. 3 Tram stop away from City Free Travel Zone close to MCG can walk to both if you are comfortable walking around 1 Km. Just opposite to East Melbourne Library The Reception service can be good and some time felt unwelcome . Just Microwave Oven equipped Kitchen not a full-fledged Kitchen
