Surprise
A room with size good facilities, right location and a step to Melbourne’s free tram service. Not much more to wish for apart from a great price. A great stay.

Poor2.0
Don't stay in the Annex
Overall a very poor experience, considering the price, the photos they put online, and the supposed 4-star rating. This would barely meet a 3-star rating. I can only speak about the Annex, but this part of the hotel is old, dirty, noisy, and you have to enter via the same entrance as a Thai massage parlour. Not a great look. There is no reception or security at this entrance. The TV looks like it's from about 2003. One of the bedside lamps can't be used because the cord isn't long enough to reach the nearest power point (yet they put the lamp there anyways). On that note, don't expect to have free power points near the bed to charge your phone. The hot water ran out every day after about 10 minutes. The shower has lots of mould, and the rest of the bathroom fixtures were very old and not working properly. This included the faucets and the hair dryer, which had years worth of crusted old debris stuck in it, preventing any airflow (fire hazard). Unfinished repairs to holes in the wall. The bed is uncomfortable and the sheets are rough. There is no A/C in the bedroom. There are two 'gentlemen's clubs' across the block, and immediately across the lane there is a pub. You can't blame the hotel for being near loud late-night venues, but you can blame them for having no soundproofing in the rooms, and windows overlooking the pub which don't even seal shut. Overall: AVOID. There are much better options for little more money.
