Arrived in Melbourne from London (a little tired) and checked in early - the girls on the desk were great, very helpful, and tolerant of my jet lag...
However from that point things go down hill. I was due to stay for 6 weeks... I stayed 1 night.
The location is superb, however the room was unwelcoming. The entrance to the building is tiny and cramped (another reviewer said makes your heart sink - I agree). The room was cold and damp with single glazing ... (bear in mind i'd arrived from a wet, rainy london).
Deciding that my state of mind was likely due to jet lag, I decided to make a go of it and went out to get some food / supplies - great Woolworths about 15min walk away, no problem. However (and yes I should have checked before leaving), on returning I noted the room had no Oven (just a standard microwave) and Hob - so the pizza did not get cooked.
Sleeping was hard going, really noisy single glazed room (noise of constant a/c / motor as opposed to standard city sounds).
The room was OK for a weekend stay, but dark and poorly lit, so working in it would be hard for 6 weeks. The bathroom had a shower over the bath (about 4 ft long - not ideal for someone who is 6ft4), and was plagued by a fan which could not be shut off.
The gym onsite is a shoe box with 1 tredmill and 1 cycle (this about finished me off), so I had to check out.... and was charged an extra night for leaving early !...
As said, the staff were friendly, and very helpful (new location of great local coffee houses etc). and the place would be great for a weekend with mates if you wanted a bed and somewhere to cook a fry up... NOT FOR A LONG BUSINESS STAY !
