Booked the shoebox room - comfortable, everything i needed, quiet & close to Spencer St Station. I would recommend this for one person or cosy couples. Staff are friendly and helpful, cafe on site is excellent. Great value for money. I will return!

Buy a bus card. Buses or trains for AUD 4.2 each time and daily maximum is $ 8.4. Buses or trains in city are free. And about food, don't forget to try the coffee, deserts, and classic Aussie steak.
