  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Good location, close to Southern Cross Station, lots of food options. Poor housekeeping, did not change dirty towels and bed sheets for my whole stay of 3 nights. Construction site beside the hotel was very noisy as early as 430am.

This small hotel is in a good location on edge of city centre easily accessible by tram / walking. Because it is in a very old building the walls are extremely thin so if you are unlucky like us & previous reviewers, the people in room next door are coming & going throughout the night - we heard conversation loudly & snoring! (Another room nearby had to knock on their door & tell them to be quiet at 3.45AM). Our room looked into dark alleyway so you wouldn’t know if night or day. Do not bother turning up 5 mins early to check in, check in starts at 2 no earlier. Staff are pretty much non existent, there seems to be a permanent ‘Back in 5 minutes‘ sign on reception desk. It is more like a guesthouse not a hotel.
