Help, somebody let me out
This hotel needs a reno. There are holes in the walls which are in desperate need of painting and the carpets are filthy. Our twin room with a bathroom had a separate toilet which could not be opened from the inside, so someone needed to let me out every time I used the loo. The shower was in the middle of the room with a curtain that almost provided flimsy privacy. All in all, not nearly worthy the price. The location was good.

2 nights in Melbourne
The room is small. No privacy. You shower and toilet infront of who you stay with. Paid for a QB was a DB. Staff were great. Breakfast not that great. No clean cups, no bread, no fruit, no pancakes. Had to constantly ask for things. Room is just a room. Nothing else, only towels. Stayed 2 nights felt clostaphobic.

Fair price for the CBD in Melbourne
Room was adequate. Thrre was some damage to the hallways and inside the room. I took pictures so the hotel doesn't try to blame me for it. Breakfast was interesting to say the least. No phone in the room to call the front desk or outside. Bed was small for my size. The laundry was adequate. No change available in the laundry room or the front desk.
