    close to transport

    We didn't expect 5 star but we felt this hotel did not meet fundamental hotel requirements. Sofa bed advertised was really a rock-hard futon/lounge, not comfortable for sleeping. Shower was generally ice cold or scalding hot and shower curtain was too close so it was difficult to shower. Our room was on level 2 and since there was no lift, we had to lug our suitcases up/down 2 flights of stairs. The carpets & lounges were badly stained, the air con hummed so loudly we couldn't run it. We voiced these issues with the manager. We go to F1 Mlb each year and stay in serviced apartments. Last year we had a 3-bdrm at Sth Yarra which was actually cheaper and had washer/dryer, dishwasher, daily servicing/cleaning of room (not just week days)
