        Most good

        Shower needs r&m Heater needs r&m No Foxtell No Mini Bar

      • Single
        9.6

        really good value for money. The rooms had excellent facilities - i.e.stove top, mirowave, fridge and cooking utensils - more than most hotels in this price range.

      • Family with children
        8.0

        The staff, were very nice and help full.the gym is well equiped. good for a short stay, were you mainly just want a bed, and a room to relax at night.

        the sofa bed was very uncofortable. could do with a new mattess.legs didnt hold it up properly.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Location excellent but did not like having separate rooms

        Did not explain that we would be in separate rooms-couple!!!!!

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Easy access coming from north of the state. Car parking available. Rooms comfortable and include kitchen, useful if staying any time. Good location, easy walk to southbank and federation square. Good access to Lygon St and China Town for eating. Two blocks from Vic markets Tram runs past front of hotel. Short walk from City Circle tram stop.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        It was a good location with a tram out the front. The city attractions were in walking distance, as were the Carlton restaurants. The Reception staff were very helpful when asked any questions about transport, shopping times etc. The room was comfortable and it was a good price.

        The shower was not very hot.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Reception staff on the ground floor were always polite and helpful

      • Family with children
        6.6

        The location was excellent and it was very clean and secure.

        The sofa bed was not ready for us when we arrived. It was far too uncomfortable to sleep on and impossible to sit on. The pillows were very thin and mattresses very hard.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Staff were always happy and helpful. It was very centrally located and easy to access transport etc. It was nice and clean and it was great having the cafe/general store attached. It was also good having the security card for the lifts so we didn't have unwanted visitors. Was great, thank you!

        The only thing that let the Arrow down was the fact that sometimes the shower wasn't hot and also our toilet was a bit blocked or didn't flush properly.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Its location is great. It's not in the city centre yet it is very close to it. And there's a convenience store right next door. I also like the kitchenette - I didn't necessarily eat outside every day.

        The staff who cleaned my room opened my balcony door but I had actually purposely locked it. I was in a foreign city and I had no idea of how safe or unsafe the area was.
