I stayed at Darling Towers on Collins Melbourne on the 26th Feb for just 1 night...and for a room that cost only 110.00 it was fantastic. I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom ( wasn't needed), but for a 1 night stay the rooms where clean, spacious, and the hotel is in an incredible location. Cnr Collins n Swanston is... More

I don't think it is a 4 star hotel as claimed but had some decent points. The location is the number one thing going for this hotel. There is a tram stop right in front so easy to get around. Also it is great value for money, I think we payed about $80-$90 a night. However a lot of things... More

We had booked a 1 bedroom apartment but on arrival it wasn't ready so we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom at no extra cost. The kitchen has everything you could need including a dishwasher and a decent sized fridge.Love the fact that you need to swipe your security key to get in of a night. Very central to everything.

We stayed here for 6 nights in early february. A great budget accomodation in the heart of melbournes CBD; value for money was on key. It's right on the corners of swanston and collins, meaning there's great access to trams and public transport right outside the hotel entrance. More than enough room for my partner and i (we were upgraded... More

Enjoyed 2 weeks during the Australian open tennis. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which had been renovated on the third floor which was clean and well appointed. By staying right in the middle of everything we were able to find and explore more restaurants and shops without the hassle of long walks. The tennis was only a 15 minute... More

I have stayed here many times. It is in a great location in the heart of the city. True it can be a bit noisy depending on what apartment they give you. But when in Melbourne who stays in their room, there is so much to do and see. I have always considered it great value for money, the rooms... More

The location of these apartments is good, we stayed in the higher level on the 11th floor. The reception is on the 6th floor and then you ride to the lift to the 10th floor and walk to another lift to the 11th floor. We expected that our apartment would be secure and quiet. Well it certainly isn't quiet, the... More

Ok so I am 16 and I travelled to Melbourne, from Adelaide, for a five day holiday, with my older brother, mother and father. I believe my parents decided on this place to stay because of the location and the price. When we first got there we were originally confused but then realised that we has to use the intercom...
