10.0 Excellent
I arrived very early in the morning and they kindly accepted my luggage and stored it for me. I did not actually return to book in till quite late in the evening. Nothing seemed a problem for them. The location was amazing and I would highly recommend the hotel.
9.2 Excellent
Having stayed in four different types of rooms by now the overall experience here is good. My latest stay was in a fully refurbished room on the upper floor, Spencer Street side, nicely done, comfortable bed, clean and very spacious. The street noise however remains an issue and complimentary earplugs in the room would have been welcomed. Reception staff is always very friendly and helpful, this is a busy place and they remain unflustered and friendly at all times I have been there. Can't beat it for location with the close proximity to Southern Cross Station and Etihad Stadium. Would not recommend for extended stay but as an overnighter this is a great budget hotel.
