Have been staying in these apartments whenever I visit Melbourne for many years. On this occasion I was appalled at the condition of our unit. We had the 2 bedroom apartment & it has certainly seen better days. The lounge was ripped, kitchen floor badly scratched, outdoor setting rusted & broken. To get out to our balcony the sliding door... More

We booked a studio for three nights and were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The location could not be better in the CBD and the hotel was quiet with trams at the door. It was a very short walk to Flinders St Station and all those fabulous arcades and shops. We... More

Have stayed here on 3 occasions and will keep coming back. It is clean the apartments are a good size and is very central to the CBD. The kitchen is basic but has all we needed. We also got a deal with free WiFi which is standard in Europe but not so in Australia.

Aussie Faulty Towers - although not all bad. I would struggle to recommend a friend to stay here....despite its amazing location. The accommodation is basic, outdated and the rooms are all in need of maintenance, paying particular attention to carpet replacement, paint work, mould in the bathroom tiles, and furniture being updated. I got moved 3 times in the first... More

The reception to the hotel is on level 6 and you need to catch the correct lift so read the signs! Other than that I found it to be a pleasant place to stay. Yes, they do have proper kitchen facilities with plenty of cups, plates, etc etc as well as the pots and pans. Even though I was in... More

If you don't like traffic, this place probably isn't for you. However I never noticed it and it didn't disrupt my sleep. Quite a nice place. Tram station is right out the front of the hotel and near everything.

We always stay back at this apartment when we visit Melbourne. Even though the furniture is a bit tired and internet is paid, the strategic location of this apartment is superb, it is basically walking distance to most of the places in CBD and there is tram station just in front of the apartment under free tram zone. The car... More

My friends and I stayed here for three nights and really had no complaints. Both the receptionists that greeted and farewelled us were polite and helpful. I was at first reluctant to book accommodation at Darling Towers as the reviews were quite mixed and for the price and location, seemed too good to be true. Thankfully our expectations were met...

Darling Towers is located right in the heart of Melbourne, the ideal location for anyone visiting. Unfortunately that is where the positives end, the service upon arriving is poor at best. The rooms, the reception area and halls are in need of a renovation. The rooms are a good size but are very outdated. We found the room to be... More

We stayed on the 6th floor, all you can hear are trams and loud music (live bands) from surrounding pubs. Extremely disappointed this was not mentioned when speaking over the phone questioning the receptionist about this when booking. Not looking forward to the next two nights!!
