Fair 4.0
Great location, but that's about it
I was disappointed with the layout of this room - it wasn't as originally pictured when I booked it, but I moved the bed around to make it more comfortable and convenient for myself. It was very noisy from the main street below, and the roadworks which started at 7am on Saturday morning were a nuisance. I'd recommend good ear plugs if staying here. Cleanliness was another issue - the carpet needs a thorough vacuum and microwave / fridge area needs a good dusting. The bathroom sink's water pressure was non-existent and the water temperature was highly sensitive - the hot water was extremely hot and very difficult to regulate. Shower had a similar issue. The best thing about this hotel is its convenient location in the heart of the CBD and easy walkability to shops, restaurants, theatre and other attractions.

Lights and power points need to be fixed!
All I need, except for problem with power points and lights. (Room 387?; forgot) Power point next to the table where the iron was did not work! Had to move a chair, unplug the desk light to plug in the kettle, while kettle on the floor. I could have put the kettle on the chair and plugged in next to the air conditioner (besides that power point was loose, had tape over it and did not seem safe), but the chair surface was too osft and hence not stable for the kettle. Not sure, what the desk lamp on the low desk next to the bed was for. Too low and far away from bed for readng and to be useful for the larger and higher bench where one would normally make the tea/coffee. The bed light did not work. Supply of power cord to lengthen kettle cord or even one with two power points to use on the bench for the desk lamp and the kettle would be useful. Also, difficult to fill the kettle with water has the sink tap is too low; so can't fit kettle underneath. Unsure abourt leaving. When I first tried to walk out just before 8 am the door was locked. I had been given instructions how to get in after the door was locked, but not how to get out. I heaard a noise at the door, as if unlocking and at the second try pulling at the door, it opened. Don't know, if that is the design of the door to have to pull on a locked door to unlock it, or if by chance it happened to turn 8 am for door to automatically unlock. .Pretty scary. I nearly panicked.

Great location/staff, only good for heavy sleepers
The good: hotel reception was amazing. Friendly and helpful in answering all our questions. Housekeeping service was provided every day with an added bonus of biscuits and coffee/tea in the room. This was an unexpected surprise. Location was perfect for everything we needed. The bad: as others have mentioned the noise level is high. The dinging of the trams kept my partner up most of the night. Although that's to be expected on Swanston street (please note cars/buses/taxis cannot drive on this street as it is tram only- you will have to walk to the corner to get dropped off or picked up). But the noise level inside the hotel was also high. For instance we could clearly hear others drop something, talking on the phone, etc in their rooms above us. Rooms are a bit cramped if you have two beds.

A comfortable mid-range stay in Melbourne
I travel as family of 4 with a 10 year old kid and a 65 year old female during winter in Melbourne. Coming from tropical country, the wind and the cold breeze of Melbourne can be a challenge. We arrived 7.30 AM in Melbourne knowing we cant check in before 2 PM. However, the gentleman in the front office were so kind to let us check in at around 8.30 without additional charges. We payed A$470 for 3 night for a family room with small kitchenette and a bathroom with good showers. The room were not too spacious but it was clean and beds were comfortable (except for the sofabed). All the staff are nice and friendly and also keen on helping and they also let us stored our bags after checking out until we could collected it again in late afternoon. The free wifi were not at its best, but it had it uses and still allows a reasonable internet connection. Dont let the building entrance or the elevator scares you, for the room was nice. The location was great (near federation square and close to various tram stops. However, situated in a room near the street can be quite noisy in at night, but not too noisy that a good pair of earplug cant cure. However, during our 2nd day of stay, the water were cut of due to construction on Swanson street that had a whole block of the power and water cut out for a day or two. Except for the lost of water (which were no fault of the hotel), and those minor glitches, I would definitely stay in this motel again.

City Square Motel is not 5 Star but is more than a budget motel. It is so conveniently located to trains, trams, culture and eating out. The motel is above shops and the only time noise was a problem was when the rubbish trucks came into the back lane early one morning. The room was clean and comfortable, with all the facilities we needed. Easily accessible rooms via lifts. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
