    Very good

    Very convenient to city and MCG, NGV. All you need is in the room. Very quiet spot in Lt Bourke st. Great big comfy bed. Great shower.

    The linen was too small for the big bed. Could not open wardrobe properly due to the big bed +++ & ------.The breakfast area is pretty cold for winter time, summer time would be OK . Heaps of places to b'fast nearby.

    This studio apartment was perfect for our overniter in the city to attend a show. It has some kitchen facilities so if you want to eat in you can. Location is fantastic for many of the theatres in Melbourne and also many restaurants, in particular, Chinatown. We would return in a heartbeat!!

    The location of the hotel was excellent.

    Housekeeping were poor, dirty dishes not taken with them, beds not made properly, bathroom not cleaned, sinks not wiped. Car park for hotel was located to far from the hotel a good 10-15 minute walk...If your thinking of getting a car for your Melbourne trip I would reconsider...parking is so expensive!

    The location to China Town and city shopping. The bed was very comfortable.

    I did not like 1. the car park being so far away. 2. The reception being different building. 3. The lifts were very slow and old. 4. The rooms were pooly cleaned. 5. The bathroom layout was poorly designed and lacked space for the vanity.

    What we didn't like about the hotel was our miniscule bathroom and it's general state of disrepair and what repairsjad been done were sloppy i'n the extreme.

    The location was great very close to China Town, and the theatres

    The room hadn;t been cleaned, there was used tissues left around the room, Crushed chips all over the floor, and the shower glass/screen fell off. Very disappointing in all areas.

    Location- near great restaurants and bars. it was quite even though it was so central. clean and reflected the website so it met our expectations.

    Main thing was the spa was out of order. that was disappointing but unavoidable

    Superb

    The location was excellent for visiting Melbourne. It suited us as it was so close to Chinatown and the Comedy Festival. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good place to stay.

    Our stay in the two bedroom suite - the suite needs an upgrade. The room felt old and well used.

    Rooms need a good clean, with that I don't mean the daily clean that was good. But walls,doors and tiles in the bathroom need a good clean ones a month

    The location to China Town, the department stores, the museum and the trams was excellent. The feather pillows made sleeping so comfortable -my fellow guests all commented on having a good night sleep.

    We had some problems with the entry card taking time to work at the main entrance(maybe did it too fast or too slow) but on our last day the entrance door was working without needing the card so we only needed to use it for the lifts and for the room entry.

    Very good

    The location was pretty convenient - close to trams, city and chinatown. The local eating places were excellent. The staff were excellent - friendly and very helpful.

    The pool was not in the same location as the hotel - it was situated across the road in the Somerset Gordon Place. It meant that you had to come out of the building and cross the road to use it. The reception was also located across the road. This wasn't too bad or inconvenient though. If we'd known the pool was not on-site, we would not have opted to stay as we have 3 small children and an outdoor, across the road pool is not very convenient. It may have been advertised as such, but we didn't realise!

    Good

    The location was good and pretty central to all attractions inner city.

    As there were four adults, we booked a two bedroom apartment. It was smaller than it looked in the photos on the net & didnt have an ensuite as advertised. The beds were comfortable. We were upgraded to the penthouse for the 2nd night which was nice and larger and had an ensuite off the main bathroom, but the toilet dripped all night keeping us awake. Also, the heat setting on the airconditioning didnt work, so we couldnt warm the rooms after we got back late from exploring the city. Other than that the unit was nice and comfortable and had an outside balcony - no view.

    Good

    Its close to the central part of Melbourne, shops, theatres and good restaurants.

    The paintwork was shabby so it made the woodwork look dirty. The shower door did not stay closed so you bashed into it when you were showering.

    Superb

    The staff were very helpful and went out of there way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay.

    That there are no windows or fans in the appartments.
