As a business traveler, I found this hotel to be very good. Its location is near ideal; with the trams very convenient to downtown Melbourne and other locations. It is just far enough from the CBD to be quiet and very economical, yet close enough to the beach, Chapel Street, Fitzroy Street and the CBD for most anyone. I found the service to be very friendly and helpful; the rooms were very comfortable. As the hotel is situated, there is the frontside with good views, or the backside facing an oposing building. If I'm in Melbourne again, I'll check here first for accomodations.
