10.0 Excellent
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and once again it was a very pleasant experience. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and even though the hotel is on Swanston street it was nice and quiet. The tram stop is practically right out the front of the hotel and there is easy access to the building if travelling by car. We will stay here again.
3.0 Poor
smelly hotel, filthy dirty rooms, bathroom and kitchen tiles were disgusting, water damage in bedroom, mould in window seals, dust everywhere went to reception they were full so couldn’t move us
7.7 Good
Inconvenience for not having a credit card. I was not expecting them to hold a bond on a visa.
8.5 Great
Compact room but well equipped and clean. Good location and great budget price. Tram stop right at front door. Easy walk to great shopping (Melbourne Central).
8.7 Great
Last time I was in a room looking out on Swanston St & it was noisy with all the nearby construction, this time I requested a quieter room & I backed onto the alley. Incredibly noisy with the garbage truck in the early hours, & just general noise at all hours from the alley.
9.5 Excellent
helpful staff, spacious accommodation, fabulous location for spending a week at the Aus Open,
10.0 Excellent
My stay at Arrow on Swanston overall was excellent, the room was cleaned each day, clean towels each day and the location for transport, city and victoria markets was great.
