Don't know whether to recommend the hotel or not. Stayed here for 2 nights. The room was very clean and comfortable with (finally) some proper bathroom facilities which means a european tap which controls both hot and cold water. Nothing wrong with the room. But impossible to sleep because the noise from the street is incredibly loud. Apparently they are...

Near Chinatown and Princess Theatre, where Broadway hit, The Book of Morman, has just opened. Convenient to public transit and shopping. Rooms are plain with limited furnishings, but the biggest shortcoming is that the continental breakfast consists of a small box of cornflakes and stale coookies left in the room. Plan to eat out. No noise issues for us in...

The rooms are reasonably clean and smaller than they look in the pictures. The bathrooms provide soap, shampoo etc in those big dispensers which is ok from a sustainability perspective but a bit ook too. The TV in my room didn't work very well. Biggest problem is the noise, garbage trucks (I think) come down the street very noisily at...

Reviewed 30 January 2017

The hotel is located perfectly near three theatres, in a quiet street. It’s clean, with fridge and microwave, also irons and safes. Small but not noticeably so and certainly no smaller than other central city hotels/apartments. Also only one block away from the tramline that runs the full length of the CBD so getting around is super quick and easy.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
