Fodor's Review

The smartly configured studios and suites at this hotel are a five-minute walk from Palmer Street's burgeoning dining precinct, and an easy stroll across the footbridge from Flinders Street and the ferry port. Pod-like accommodations are long and narrow but nicely designed, with laundries, compact kitchens, and work desks. All have fast Wi-Fi and balconies. While you shouldn't expect five-star service, there are some useful guest facilities: a small gym, outdoor pool,

business center, and free on-site parking.
