Best Boutique Hotel in Melbourne
Felt welcome and at home from first stepping into the hotel till the second we left. Great location near tram stop and Southern Cross Train Station. Staff knowledgable, helpful and polite - nothing was a problem. Rooms comfy and clean, breakfast fantastic and really enjoyed the intimate & friendly atmosphere of "the have a drink on us" evenings. Thank you so much we really enjoyed everything about our stay.

Fave hotel in Melbourne
We stay here every year when we travel to Melbourne to watch the AFL. Great location (few minutes walk to Southern Cross Station), very comfy beds, best brekky (and good value), very friendly staff and the complimentary expresso and little snacks is unbeatable.

This Hotel was excellent in every way.
This was one of the best Hotels I have stayed at. The check in, check out, breakfast staff and staff in general were so friendly, so helpful. The Hotel is close to Southern Cross Station and with a Tram stop just down the road it is so easy to go anywhere. The positive also had a negative, we were in one of the front rooms (Room 101) and we heard the trams rolling by and the odd "Ting Ting". It probably didn't really worry us but it was there. But again this small negative outweighed so many positives. Their "green" policy is great, breakfast was awesome and good value, we took advantage of the complimentary drink and received recommendations for dinner and travel options. I would definitely stay there again.
