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.

On Melbourne's hottest November night on record, I had the pleasure of staying in an apartment on the 9th floor of Darling Towers on Collins. For a relatively cheap apartment, I was very surprised at the space and quiet I enjoyed on this very hot night, which, along with the excellent air conditioning, afforded me a very comfortable night of...

I must say I was VERY pleasantly surprised with this hotel. With the price I had paid and the my experience travelling and staying in countless hotels, to walk into this apartment and be absolutely stunned was not expected! With a very modern kitchen and a trendy, spacious bathroom it offers MORE than you could wish for in hotel comfort!... More

Darling Towers on Collins provided everything we needed for our week stay in Melbourne. Right out front was a tram stop and around the corner from tourist shuffle bus and tram stops. Also close to Tourist Info desk at Federation Square. Rooms were clean and fairly roomy. Very surprised that the tourist companies hadn't heard of it. Highly recommend. Service... More

My mum and I were looking for a self-contained, modern, spacious, two bedroom unit in Melbourne's CBD and Darling Towers certainly delivered. We were greeted warmly by staff upon our arrival and had everything (security, room features) fully explained to us. Our room was clean and spacious, with very comfy beds. And, location, location! Right near Swanston Street trams, Flinders... More

The location was awesome!! Right in the heart of the city and only metres from Flinders St Station and the free city tram. The apartment was an excellent size and with a washer and dryer, hair dryer, everything you could want was right there. Really happy with my stay.

My fiance and I chose this location in Melbourne after reading the positive reviews on this site. While the basic descriptions of the apartments were true, we were horrified by the infestation of cockroaches primarily in the kitchen and bath. The kitchen was unusable (one of the features that caused us to chose Darling Towers) and we had to keep... More
