    Great location and value for your money. We chose the studio apartment and it was great to be able to make some breakfast each morning. The only fault I have with this hotel is from 7ish AM every morning it is very noisy. Maybe the walls are very thin but mainly the staff are cleaning rooms they have their 2 way radios up really loud so you can hear the back and forth chatting very clearly for hours. We came to Melbourne to relax and chill out for a few days but really didn't get to sleep in any morning. Maybe an ear piece would be better.
