Darling Towers Appartment's are clean, medium price and very handy to all main shopping, theatre's and events (Federation Square). Well within walking distance and very handy to trams (free on weekend). Difficult if you need to unload car, no stopping zone. Parking in high rise car park nearby is discounted by Darling Towers ($17/day). Excellent value, good stay.

The location could not be more perfect. And the rooms are all very neat and modern. Comfortable beds and everything you need. The main feature though is the location. It is the perfect distance from most things in the City. We have stayed here twice.

Horrendous is a word that comes to mind.. We were told it was called breakfree on Collins- Nowhere outside does it say breakfree on Collins you get the lift up to level 6 where a dodgy reception is set up in one of the rooms. The girls working there were totally clueless and unhelpful. When we got to our room... More

We arrived early for our stay and after struggling to get street parking to unload our luggage we made our way to the front door of the building. First problem was our booking had the name as Breakfree on Collins - there was no signage anywhere to tell you that you were in the right place. Second problem was Saturday... More

Were driving a rental car midday Saturday and check in was a pain. First a parking spot needs to be found in an off street park as there is no facilities out the front. Check in is difficult as reception is on the sixth floor and you need to be let in and the buttons on the panel are incorrect.... More

A very slow check in started our stay. We were given the wrong room (1 bed in the 2nd room instead of 2) which was fixed quickly but annoying. We booked wi fi and then had to pay this in cash (no receipt but I was tired by then and couldn't be bothered arguing). The room is ok but getting... More

Location was great, very quiet rooms, but could do with an upgrade. Staff were more than helpful. Many good restaurants and also close to Chinatown. Trams were available on Swanston & Collins, plus the trams are free in the city

You get what you pay for but a bit of service would be great. Rooms in need of major upgrade as looking tired and double glazed windows would be handy to keep out external street noises. Upon check in, had to follow up on rollaway bed, which was part of our booking and paid for and then had to change... More

On arrival at reception, the door was locked so we waited with others waiting to check in. When the receptionist arrived, we were told we were in room 908. We couldn't get the lift to go to the ninth floor so we returned to reception, only to be told we were in 806, as the receptionist had the key upside... More

Stayed with family of 5 adults for 2 nights. Good price and convenient location but reception arrangement is very odd in a converted room on 6th floor. Was difficult to access as you need a keypass to get up the lift to this floor. Room was spacious and well equipped but just needed some updating particularly in the bathroom where... More
