    Melbourne 9/2017

    Close to Southern Cross Station and Skybus pick up point, about 5 min could be reached. Staff were quite nice, willing to answer tourists' queries. We are free to use the cook sets in the kitchen, which allowed us to buy food at QVM and then cook. The room and corridor were smelly. No lift to access between the rooms and concourse.
