Pros: Close to a venue
Cons: The bathroom lighting, grubby corners, chipped cupboards, a non-slip shower.
Location: Walking distance to RLA
Bed clean and comfortable. Bathroom looked grubby in the corners, no adequate lighting for applying makeup, no non-slip mat in the shower. No extra toilet roll. Not enough 'real' sugar. The staff were very helpful and cheerful. Breakfast substantial.

Posted Jan 30, 2017
Pros: Location was very convenient. Swimming pool. Washer and dryer for every 2 rooms.
Cons: Our room overlooked a busy railway line so quite noisy. Only place we stayed in Australia without free wi fi.
Location: 2 minutes from MCG and 5 minutes from Open tennis. 10 minutes from Federation Square. . No restaurants, shops and bars in immediate area
We were going to a cricket match at the MCG and also to day 1 of the Australian Open tennis. The hotel was ideal as only 5 minutes from both and about 10 minutes to Flinders street station so very central.

Posted Oct 19, 2016
Pros: If you prepay for your breakfast at check-in it's $18 instead of $23 so worth doing. Hot buffet with eggs cooked to order.
Cons: NA
Location: Right over the road from MCG and easy walk to Tennis Centre. Fitzroy Gardens 2 min walk away. Tram & train nearby.
We stayed here after the Marathon and it was perfect. We even had a view of Jolimont to watch the rest of the runners finishing. So handy to transport. Staff very friendly. We had a 2 bedroom and it was a really good size. Very comfortable beds.
