Fantastic location. Several trams at the front door. Train is 7 minutes walk. Lygon Street is two blocks away. The manager Kylie is very helpful.

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Room was smaller than expected, balcony was covered in fur balls of some kind. When I went to check-in reception were challenging a trans customer about their gender identity which was unpleasant. No information was given about room or facilities, just a key. Cafe was closed the whole time. It was okay, not great vibes.
