                  Location!!

                  Noisy!! I stayed for 2 nights, Thursday & Friday, and on Thursday night I could hear lots of noise probably caused by trash bins emptied and moved. And on Friday night it was extremely noisy because of the people at cafes and bars on Bank Place.

                • Single
                  5.8

                  Location

                  The noise was fairly relentless. Shabbiness in fittings and detailing.

                • Group of friends
                  7.0

                  Location Comfortable bed Pleasant helpful staff

                  Extreme noise from outside the hotel, rubbish emptying, bottles crashing - Thinnish walls My curtains did not close properly - no pull cord/s No light over writing desk. No power point there either.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  Very nice clean apartment and the staff obliged by upgrading us as promised if a room were available at the time of check in. It was convenient and worked nicely for us. We were well looked after.

                • Single
                  6.6

                  The staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel location is the most important reason that I choose.

                  The tea cups were not cleaned properly. I find the soap case was empty and not enough towels for me to use.

                • Couple
                  6.6

                  Carpets were very dirty, quality clean or encouraging guest to leave shoes at the door could be options

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Location was great accomadation was clean had everything we needed staff were freindly and helpfull will stay there again

                • Family with children
                  6.2

                  The staff were very helpful and ready to give advise on where to go and what to see. the location of the hotel is ideal as you step out the front door and you are in the City and within walking distance to everthing.

                  There were a couple of things, firstly the room had a very stale / musky smell everytime we entered. the other annoying thing was the constant emptying of the rubbish bins of the adjoining cafes, restaurants, which disturbed our sleep!!!

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment for one night. The room was pretty comfortable and clean, and the staff were friendly. It was pretty much what I expected, and looked almost exactly like the photos on their website, so we had a nice stay. It was also good value, considering it had a kitchen and had a pretty decent location. I would probably stay here again if I was going to stay in the city for a night or two.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Centraly located in CBD, easy access to everywhere through train/tram/bus. very cooperative staff.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  The location was good, close to transport, sporting arenas, shopping. Very good value for money.

                  The bed was a little hard.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Excellent location - shops and restaurants very handy. Staff very helpful. Very good value.

                • Group of friends
                  3.8

                  Location central but this led to noise issues. Price was good

                  The rooms are tiny, not a hotel room just a bedroom. The rooms are noisy, was difficult to sleep with the pubs downstairs. The lift smells strongly of curry!! Bizarre!! These should be advertised as bedrooms and not hotel rooms. The 4 star self rating was very misleading

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  It was in a great location. Stayed in a sudio apartment, which was adequate. Needed a small table/chairs considering the kitchenette. Staff very courteous and helpful. Happy to stay there again.

                  Nothing really negative about the stay which would stop me booking there again.

                • Group of friends
                  5.4

                  The location is very good being only a short distance to shopping, Southbank, Etihad Stadium, etc.

                  The hotel is located near a tavern and a nightclub - both generated a lot of noise late at night. Also, there was excessive noise from the rubbish being collected outside the hotel.
