Darling Towers is a fabulous lace to stay with the family. Nice and central to everything, clean & quiet. Disappointed that one of the lifts wasn't working however it did not impact too much on our stay. Will definately stay again.

We stayed here for 4 nights - were given a free upgrade to the Executive floor upon check-in which was a pleasant surprise. Would recommend Darling Towers to anyone wanting to stay right in the middle of the city as it was smack bang in the middle, but with no traffic noise whatsoever when the ranch-slider was closed.

Our 2 b/room apartment was clean,comfortable and well appointed. It was in a great location allowing us to walk to various places of interest , or catch the tram outside the door. Friendly staff made us feel welcome. We felt the room was good value for the 3 of us and will definately stay again. Lynne, Wayne, Eva.

Firstly, I have to note that I am not one of those whingey travellers who want to pay three star prices yet receive five star quality. Neither am I picky - as long as the place is clean and well maintained, I don't care about how fahionable decor is or anything like that. You can check out my other reviews... More

We just spent a great Christmas in Melbourne at Darling Towers on Collins. The tram stopped outside the door so we were able to get everywhere we wanted. The apartment was modern and the kitchen full of every appliance you could wish for, even a dishwasher, and the washing machine/dryer was a real bonus. The staff were all helpful and... More

Searching for accommodation in Melbourne CBD we found this place advertising 2 bedroom apartments on a stand-by rooms website within our budget (under $150 per night). We rang and booked direct. Having stayed in serviced apartments before, we didn't expect the level of service you get at the top hotels, eg. porter to carry bags, but we found Darling Towers... More

Hotel is well located, but not advisable if you have a car. 17 AUD parking fee per day (not clear if you can take the car out or not and if you have to pay each time the 17 AUD) and the parking is a 5 to 10 min. walk from the hotel. Also not easy to offload the luggage... More

My partner and I were given a 2-bedroom apartment on the 5th floor with a large bathroom. The building is secure at all times. The building itself is not flash, neither are the corridors (plain concrete, a little run down, no decorations) but the apartment itself is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc.... More

My apartment in Darlings Towers, Melbourne was fully equipped with everything you need to do your own cooking. It was very roomy and had a nice view to Russell Street. Also no noise could be heard from any other apartment or from the street below. The apartment was convenient to transport, tourist information, banks. places of interest and grocery stores.
