I♥Melbourne

My trip down to Melbourne to meet my BFF from school was very successful. We stayed at Hotel Enterprize by Southern Cross Station in Spencer Street. After hearing all those bad reviews about the place on Trip Advisor, I was almost terrified to check in but I did.

We arrived around 2pm and got the last carpark berth in the hotel. Thank God for that. There is another secure carparking in Flinders Lane right behind the hotel but I didn't really know what ticket to get for my park. The was no carpark attendant on a Sunday.

Just a quick word on Enterprize Hotel, all the renovation are finished, the courtyard is looking beautiful, the new rooms are modern with flat lcd screens, strange to have frosted screen for bathroom to room. I chose the Business rooms which is on the wing, room and decors are classic, the TV is old, so is the airconditioning. And I didn't find a data point for Internet as advertised for Business Rooms. However, we had a pleasant stay, room was clean and bed was comfy to sleep in and it was affordable for three nites stay at $91. I love the sounds of tram outside my window. Some might find it noisy but that is a Melbourne icon and it stops at 9pm at nite anyway and it was lovely, for me.

So anyway, I made it to Melbourne and had a ball with my bestie. There was lots of eating and window shopping and doing the touristy thing. It was fun. It was heartbreaking to leave them but I gotta come back to work for my next 'runaway'.


I wanted to take this lovely thing home but it wouldn't fit my suitcase. Isn't it gorgeous?
