The hotel and staff were excellent. All in house amenities Bar etc were also of a high standard. The general condition of the Melbourne CBD was not good. Very dirty.

Fantastic location, great hotel in all aspects The only issue was trying to adjust the hot water to a comfortable temp. which took a very long time. It was either freezing or scolding hot. Made it very hard to have a shower. Not sure if it was only my room or the whole building. I didn't complain, just dealt with it but absolutely loved everything else.

we loved the Encore Restaurant - the staff were amazing and helpful and the food was excellent.- the steak was fantastic and the scollops and bruschetta was fantastic. We were disappointed that our room was not ready on arrival and we had to wait till after 2pm to check in. Also we had to request our room to be made up in the mornings with fresh towels etc - we expected the room to be made up without having to ask. Great location - handy to Bourke Street and China town.

Great location, very friendly staff, easy check-in and check-out process. We were able to access our room early which was convenient given we had flown from interstate. The room was basic, the shower was incredibly sensitive with the temperature, but the twin beds were comfy and there were extra blankets in the cupboard to help with the cold weather. The view from the window in room 1203 was of a wall. Overall, happy with this hotel for the price we paid but probably wouldn’t stay here again.

Generally speaking this is a great hotel. It is a little away from trams and trains, so keep that in mind if you have mobility issues. One major issue I found with the room was with the shower. The shower in our room was on a raised platform, which became quiet dangerous - in fact my partner did slip stepping down from the platform, narrowly escaping serious injury. The staff at the hotel are amazing. Very friendly and will bend over backwards for their guests. We took advantage of the buffet breakfast one morning. This was fantastic, with a great range of cooked and continental options. All up, it’s a lovely, relatively modern hotel, you just have to be a bit carefully having a shower.
