          Would recommend for single travellers on a short stay. Bed is comfortable. Room is small, fine for short stays. Well located. Good value breakfast option. Well located for trains, skybus , trams etc. Good basic value accommodation.

          Had a quick overnight stay. It's centrally located for Footy (Etihad) Southern Cross Station or the Casino. Friendly, casual yet efficient staff. Room was compact but well appointed, clean and neat. Would recommend for short stays (footy weekends, getaways)
