                  I love the hotel

                  The over night room service was terrible.

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  the design of the hotel is great and the room is very comfortable.

                  the room was a bit small but overall it's great.

                  10.0

                  I loved the soundproofing and quiet although it is situated in a busy buzzing area.

                  The bathroom is rather small and more bench space would be appreciated.

                  They have a fantastic colone/fragrance you smell as you walk in. It adds another level to the overall experience.

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  Great location, interesting art, well designed rooms - small but well equipped and felt larger then they were. Loved hiring the bikes - very reasonable rates and a great way to get around. Good restaurants in the hotel also.

                  Parking was expensive and a tight fit. Otherwise no issues.

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  The room was clean and modern, loved the ipod dock, microwave, the fact that there was shampoo and conditioner, not shampoo/conditioner. Bed was very comfortable, parking was easy to get to and easy to use with the room key, and then the key drop box on the way out. Loved how there was the option of internet (I didn't use it). The location was awesome too, did some shopping at the Prahran Market, and really close to uni.

                  Nothing, loved it all.

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  It was really nice beautiful place! Wish I could have stayed longer!

                  Other guests were a bit noisy but not your fault :)

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Great feel. Well appointed and comfortable room and kitchenette would be great for a stay of a few days.

                  I always find that when the last interaction involves a credit card fee that it just detracts from an otherwise enjoyable experience. For the $3 or so dollars it would just be better to add it into the room price and I wouldn't even notice. So sad and how else does one pay for a room? Wouln't mind at least one free bottle of water. When will our Aussie hotels realize that the competition overseas all do WiFi for free.

                • Group of friends
                  8.0

                  The shower was lovely. The bed was very comfortable with lost of pillows. Close to shops, restaurants and transportation.

                  The bathroom does not have any privacy whatsover, the glass is almost see through - not very nice when you are staying with 2 friends.

                  Location and interiors

                  The GPOs. And lights went out tiwce The airconditioning was not working on both nights

                  Location to shops and my workplace.

                  Very slow check-in, insufficient front desk staff. Very poor service in on-site cafe.
