stayed here for a night with my husband and two children, booked a two bedroom apartment with queen size bed and 2 singles. Location is absolutely fantastic. Reception is on the 8th floor and was in what looked like what could have been a hotel room, seemed a bit dodgy, but reception staff were ok, nothing flash but ok. We... More

I have never written a review before but I felt it important that others were warned of what to expect. Staff were incredibly rude to us at check in when there was a misunderstanding. They were very unhelpful and disinterested. We were told to check in later (it was already past 4pm) and told us to leave our bags. They... More

Stayed here the week before Xmas and after reading a few of the reviews on here I got a bit worried but after staying there for two nights I cant say anything bad. We stayed in Room 1002 looking directly out onto Collins street and the noise didn't bother us at all. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, rooms... More

We stayed here as a family in December 2013. I had a little trouble finding the entrance using google maps, I called for directions and the lady was gracious and helpful. All staff encountered were friendly and polite. The apartment was on the fourth floor and it was tired and shabby. The veneer was peeling off the vanity, there were... More

After booking a one bedroom apartment for 4 nights I went on tripadvisor to check the reviews. Wrong order I know - should have checked here first!!! I was very worried to say the least after reading all the negative reviews and very nearly cancelled the booking. I had no need to worry!! The location was perfect. Central to absolutely... More

The location of Darling Towers is fabulous, in the heart of the CBD. Trams out the front or walk left or right to Elizabeth or Swanston Streets. All you could want within walking distance. The room was very clean and the staff were polite and helpful. Loved that the room had it's own balcony, albeit small. The shower was fabulous,... More

Customer service was terrible on check in and just as bad on departure. We walked in to a fairly good sized apartment, however there was no storage space in the single bed, bedroom and the beds were very uncomfortable. The bathroom was dirty and the toilet button had sticky tape holding it on, and it barely flushed. The walls were... More

Very good location, clean rooms and a good price. We had a peaceful nights sleep, the bed was comfortable and there was a good view down into Collins street with a picturesque view of the town hall. Detergent, a new sponge and wipe cloth, and drain plugs were supplied. The new Bosch dishwasher and cooktop made for a good stay.... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for a family of four, the kids room was very small with no storage they lived out of their suitcase. The place was dirty, curtains all stained, walls filthy, had to put a washer on the armrest of lounge to hide stains of who knows what. Washing machine didn't work properly, no plug for... More
