Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
We like the close proximity to the hospital, the price and parking arrangements. We didn't like the smoke alarm hanging out of the ceiling, broken toilet roll holder, the dirty cups in the dish washer, no body wash in shower, broken conditioner dispenser and no plugs for sinks and towel rack ready to fall off the wall

Great location, only a 12 min walk to Brunswick Street. Parking was fine, aside from idiots parking and blocking the 'out' entrance of the parking spaces. Had to ask for replacement top sheet, as had some type of 'yellow stain' on it?? Doona cover under it was also stained, but the new top sheet replaced by the helpful front desk person helped. Ironing board cover very loose and needs replacing, as kept falling off the metal board. Aside from those little things, a nice place to stay.
