                    • The tram stops just outside and 's a ten minute ride to the CBD, good location to get to downtown. The hotel is lovely, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and rooms are very comfortable and stylish. Restaurants downstairs are excellent.

                      Internet is not free.

                    • Trams were handy on st, the views onto St Kilda Rd were great too and this Hotel was one of the best value for money that we have stayed at. The staff were very helpful, bed was very comfy and the French cafe downstairs had gorgeous food.

                      Bathroom far too small, breakfast poor Restaurants mediocre.

                    • Clean, modern, excellent location, near the tram line making easy to get to and the hotel feels more like a work of art. Mattress made me feel like home, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the selection of movie titles is fantastic. The mini kitchen is nice.

                      Not much around the area, the decor was too modern and our room was a bit noisy as we could hear the garbage lorries early every morning. The food was very greasy and disappointing.

                    • Fantastic location and the kitchenette, travelled around Melbourne on public transport was very convenient to have a tram stop nearby, oh the decor was very impressive. The staff were incredibly helpful, scott the manager was pleasant and the room was very comfortable and private. The food was very good, bunkers sparkling wine was too exspensive for a wine that tasted like a $10 cheap wine.

                      Tv difficult to position and not many hotel facilities. Bathroom was very tight.
