    3/5

      The location was great for what I needed. Easy access to trains and trams. On arrival, the lady behind the desk did not smile at all. When we stepped out of the elevator on level 2, the smell of cigarette smoke was overwhelming! The room in itself was a basic hotel room. The beds and pillows were not the most comfortable, but they weren't terrible either. I was surprised how little street noise came through at night. We could hear it, but it wasn't as loud as I expected it to be.

      • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      This is the worst hotel I’ve stayed at in Melbourne. The common areas stank like weed and cigarettes, you can hear the people next to and above you, the bathroom had dirty fingers prints all over the door, the pillows were cheap and uncomfortable and there wasn’t enough bedding to protect against the cold. The train shakes the building, which is no fault of the hotel, but you really do get what you pay for in this place. Would not stay ever again
