Fodor's Review

Location and great value make up for the limited space in this CBD-edge hotel. There are studio rooms and several configurations of one- and two-bedroom apartments sleeping up to four. All rooms have full kitchens, perfect for cooking up a feast of fresh produce bought at Queen Victoria Market, a 10-minute walk away; restaurant-lined Lygon Street is even closer. Guests have complimentary access to the gym, sauna and outdoor swimming pool (closed over winter) in the adjoining long-term student housing building. Secure under-cover parking is available for a fee.
