The location is fantastic - opposite the Prahran Market and around the corner from the quirky and stylish Chapel St shopping and in an area commonly referred to as bohemian and eclectic - a very apt description.The hotel is part of a small chain of art hotels located in strategic...

Great location within short walking distance to Chapel Street and there's also tram stop on your door stop that'll take you into the city. The rooms were beautifully decorated and make for a really fun stay. The hotel is on a busy road but it's quiet in the evening, including on Fri and Sat nights. Sure, you can find cheaper...

Really loved the rooms in this hotel, mirrors and really comfortable bed.

Location was perfect. I found the staff friendly and approachable. We had a deluxe room and it was nicely appointed with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was the smallest I have ever had given the price of the room. There was no turn down service and even the water was at an extra cost. I found it considerably overpriced.

The bed was beautifully comfortable. Rooms very smart looking. Art work looks great. Only one thing, the frosted glass wall and door into the bathroom/toilet. You can see everything, there are some things better left unseen. We made a pact to look in another direction when one of us needed to use the bathroom.

“The lights in the bathroom are on separate switches, one just outside the bathroom and one connected to the main ceiling lights in the apartment. It's easy to think one is not working. ”
