I went to Melbourne for work and I booked this hotel as the pictures online looked okay,
to my surprise the hotel rooms were TINY! a lot smaller than what was online.
We requested the room not to be serviced and it was serviced. The...More
This hotel was my first experience of Melbourne and I requested a refund after 1 night and finally checked out after the 2nd night. Here's why:
Internet access (and you pay for it) is terrible with a Speedtest coming in at 0.5mbps...More
Rooms are small but extremely well looked after. Very clean. Ideal for short holiday if out most of time. Close to all that Melbourne has to offer....transport, shops,parks. One problem ..reception slow to respond but staff have to multitask it seems. Need more staff. Enjoyable...More
Stayed there for 5 nights, extremely poor service. Reception has no one all the time even if you ring the service bell. Housekeeper won't wash your cups, won't refill toiletries, if you ask for something, get down to the lobby to get it. Dim lighting,...More
Stayed just one night with my sister. Good location not too far from town and within walking distance of sky bus terminal. Comfy bed, good heating. Had free breakfast the next day which was also good. Wouldn't recommend anymore than a weekend stay, rooms are...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
I paid $6 for the breakfast too, only free after I have stay 7 days there and extended my stay for another 5 days for my son stay at Sophia hotel to settle into University of Melbourne student's accommodation.

Gday. I think they have a policy of a deposit taken from the credit card for everyone which is held. I checked my bank online and it was taken as "pending", but never went through as a charge. But ask them if youre unsure. I know they are not great communicators but they were honest with me and I didn't get any deduction.
Hope this helps.
