Well situated; poorly maintainedPosted Feb 1, 2015
Cons: Cleanliness, responsiveness, making things work.
Concept of hotel was nice; execution was a problem. Among the things that didn't work in the room: WiFi, hair dryer, air conditioner. Staff was pleasant and very good at promising resolution--then nothing happened. Finally, they transferred us to another, much cleaner, much better kept hotel a block away.

Weekend at Gordon PlacePosted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: The Heritage 'feel' - very Victorian era.
Cons: Larger bedroom.
Location: Very close to China Town - excellent eating. Within CBD, so trams etc very easy. Marvellous Melbourne and I was in the middle of it.
I was given a delightful apartment - every convenience one could wish for. I did not arrive until 7pm, so was hungry and looking for a drink - there were three really good choices in Little Bourke St opposite the apartment. I tried Mezzo - which was sublime - recommend it. My entire stay was extremely pleasant. Staff were excellent.

Convenient location, noisy nightsPosted Mar 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed staying here until we needed to sleep on Friday night in which the dull roar from surrounding pubs was very irritating and made it almost impossible to sleep. It was however a nice hotel with a really good "feeling" to it. The café kind of atmosphere below combined with the very solid building made it a great stay. Gym was convenient if lacking a bench (a staple in my training).

Inner city Charm!Posted Dec 22, 2013
Pros: The rooms, the pool, the café and the history!
Cons: Better lighting. Some of the ceiling bulbs were dead in the living room and the bedside light was too dim to read by. Provide a reading lamp!
Location: Theatres, parks, shops and Chinatown. Everything is very handy!
What a great place to stay. Great location. Handy to the city and just around the corner from Parliament, the Princess Theatre and right next to all the restaurants in Chinatown! My extended family all booked rooms here recently, in order to attend an inner city family wedding and it was perfect. The apartments with their separate living rooms, provided perfect family meeting places and the pool was like a little resort oasis, just what was needed after a hot day at the shops!. The staff were courteous and helpful and I liked the charming character of the building itself. Lovely little café for breakfast too. We really enjoyed the pancakes with lemon curd! Next time I go to Melbourne, I will definitely stay there again.

Filthy ShowersPosted Dec 2, 2013
Cons: Clean it!!!
Location: China Town! Very central.
No window in our tiny room. Had to close the shutters to the atrium area as anyone can see into the room from the outside. The shower was putrid. Dirt stains all over the shower base. Dirt/mould/grime buildup in shower over the tiles. On site cafe not open for anything to eat and drink until 8am on a weekend. Bed was old and rickety and like that you would find in a cheap run down old hotel My home bathroom would never be that filthy! I resent paying good money for a room that is inferior to what I live in at home. Get someone in there to scrub! . Not worth the money. I have posted a further review with photos on Trip Advisor. They take $100 bond from your credit card then tell you to expect it back in about 5-10 days. Unacceptable.

I was in romm 70 on the ground floor, and the lights from the inner court yard shone through the venetian blinds, which made it difficult to sleep.

good spot with a pool, but pokey & noisyPosted Oct 16, 2013
Pros: llocation, pool, shower head, heritage building, friendly staff, the freshmess of the bed linen
Cons: the small room size, the hard bed, the lack of natural light, the noisy pool equipment, the dankness and smell of chlorine
Location: there is a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and cafes close-by. It is well serviced by trains, trams, and taxis.
the location is pretty good, and we discovered a pool, but our room was very pokey and noisy for the money we paid. the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the heritage building is a bit of fun, but I'm not sure it was very good value for money.
