Standard Queen Room has no microwave, but good

Pros: Reception open 24 hours, professional behaviour from staff.
Cons: WiFi should be included by default as our phones didn't have reception inside the room, which meant we were cut off while we were there.
Except for there being no microwave oven or toothpaste (If you've flying to Melbourne and don't have one of those small toothpaste tubes, you need this!), and that the electric kettle in the room had rust & grime in the heating coils so we didn't use it, the room was well-maintained and had everything one would hope to find in a hotel in this price range.

Decent hotel near train station....

Stayed 2 nights....CBD location. Free trams take all over CBD. Good location to catch early train to Sydney. Also close to where airport skybus leaves you off.
