    A Hotel for Millennials, and Everyone Else, Too

    Absolutely perfect location, so we would have forgiven a lot of things, but the experience was fantastic, too. The "everything's included" mentality (yep, even the minibar) is really refreshing for those of us used to paying for water on the plane, and the vibe was quirky and entertaining without being gratuitous.

    Check in staff was really friendly and helpful. Free water was provided and the room came with an Alexa. Close to Chinatown for cheap food. A block from tram station. Eastern end of CBD. It's a bit pricey though.

    All the candy you can eat! Friendly staff!

    Great hotel! Convenient location. Candy and amazing coffee in the lobby! Friendly/helpful staff. Pro tip, ask for rooms at the back of the hotel so that you have a quiet stay. The hotel is on a very busy street that has a bit of evening noise.

    Very good, be mindful of construction next door

    Very happy with hotel and overall standard. Unfortunately there is a construction right outside with trucks arriving very early, but of course no fault of the hotel

  • 4.0.Fair

    Noisy airconditioning

    Nice things - checkin and when asked if we were in Melbourne for something special, we said our wedding anniversary and they gave us a chilled bottle of Dal Zotto Prosecco, my favourite. Complimentary minibar with 2 beers, 1 mini bottle of wine and lollies - lots of lollies? Something savoury would be nice perhaps - lollies everywhere in the foyer too. Not so nice things - the air-conditioning was so insanely noisy I could not sleep. No double glazing on windows, therefore, truck noise of reversing beeps from 8 a.m. added insult to injury. Also, to sit there was only the bed - certainly not a hotel to spend time in your room. The bathroom was odd. Sorry - no returns on this hotel. Read less

    Great fun hotel located in the east end of the city. Close to parklands, museum and plenty of bars and restaurants. The penthouse is a must and the two bed rooms also well laid out.
