The hotel chain uses swipe cards for keys. Of the two cards issued, one didn't work and had to be reprogrammed at the front desk. The hotel staff was pleasant.
The shower in the bathroom here is clear glass, enclosed up to the ceiling, and the rest of the bathroom doesn't necessarily get steamed up. On the downside, ventilation for the rest of the bathroom was poor. The shower head has a hard-pulse feature, and it is a removable handheld on a European-style mount that is vertically adjustable along the wall.
A small horizontal desk space is available for writing/laptop use. An electric hair-dryer, electric water kettle, small electronic room safe for an extra charge, and mini-fridge are available for use. It is A$.90 for each local call made from the room. Internet is available in the lobby at $1.50 for fifteen minutes. Ice is available through the restaurant, and there are coin-operated drink dispensers. Their own restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the buffet is just under AUD20 from 6pm to 9pm.
The beds were comfortable, so sleeping wasn't a problem. The TV reception was of a rather poor quality. There was complimentary coffee and tea for two each day.

I stayed in a single room for a night for AUD 145.00 exclusive of breakfast.
The room was in a good condition with the best of facilities and a 24 hour room service.
Facilities available are laundry facilities, restaurants, a gymnasium and a bar. A pay parking is also available in this hotel.
I had my American breakfast here. The rate for an adult is AUD 16 and a child is AUD 9, which is considered a moderate rate in Melbourne City.
I will recommend this hotel as it is located near to Melbourne favourite market, The Victoria Market, just a 5 minute walk from Hotel Ibis and another 10 minute walk to Daimaru, Melbourne Central and Chinatown.
The only flaw I noticed in this hotel was the staff as some of them looked exhausted and tired though they were helpful and friendly. All in, a comfortable place to stay and a good value for the money.
