My favourite hotel in Melbourne closed for renovation, reopening in 2019. They were occupied up till the last day as seen from the full car park on the last three nights of my stay from 27-30April. It was bittersweet to happen to stay before the closure, but everything was fine including the friendly staff, clean rooms and working amenities. Look forward to 2019 reopening. Good luck.

I stayed twin bed room and it was clean and gorgeous. And laundry was free to use with dry. It was convenience to go the city. Just took 5min by tram from swanston st and 15min by walking. The restaurants were near around the hotel as well.

Easy, quick check in. Clean & tidy room, with all of the amenities you could wish for. The bed was a little firm for my comfort, but otherwise had a great stay here. The location was perfect for accessing the top end of the city & restaurants in Lygon St. I would stay again.

We stayed overnight when we were in town to see a show.
The room was ok but is showing its age and is rough in places. The bath for example had cracks and pitted stains and the towel hangers were coming away from the wall.
There was tea and coffee making facilities in the room and there was also complimentary wifi but it was slow and the connection was sketchy.
The bed was quite good and we could have enjoyed a peaceful lay in except for the very noisy cleaning staff who seemed to congregate outside our room (323). Add to this that one of the staff dropped a full tray of breakfast outside our door and our sleep quality was only so so.
The final annoyance was getting slugged an additional $20 in parking when we checked out. I accept that parking in the city costs but this shouldn't be added to the room costs when you're parking at the place you're staying.
It was ok here and at the price I'd stay again but it's not great quality.

Book the motel through Booking.com all went smoothly no hassles there, checked in mid afternoon all went smoothly. The location of the motel suited us just fine as we wanted to stick around Lygon Street and check out the restaurants and were only staying overnight anyway.
The room was clean and tidy, bed was good the only issue was the elevator wasn't working, but were only on the first floor anyway so it didn't bother us too much. The parking cost an extra 20 dollars but that's about the going rate in a lot of motels in Melbourne plenty of room to park as well.
Would recommend this place to anyone and I would definitely stay there again.
