Excellent location. Clean and well equipped rooms. Very friendly staff. We will be back. All booking requirements were met i.e travelling with elderly parents we needed no stairs and quiet room. We received all that. Would definitely recommend it.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
