Nice balcony on apartment room but very difficult to get to. Lifts take forever! Have to take two seperate lifts. Rooms very basic and basically cleaned. Great location.

We enjoyed 4 nights at Darling Towers on Collins this month and received excellent service. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit overlooking Collins Street and the unit was modern, clean and very comfortable. The staff were ALL helpful. The location is unbeatable. Parking downstairs is expensive but the reception staff advise other more affordable options to park only... More

Location is good but that's about it. Very average and a little rundown. Curtains missing from the room. Staff are very disinterested. When I checked in the lady was very rude. Suppose you can't expect much when the rates are so cheap compared to other places in the city. Wouldn't stay here again though.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in early February 2011. We were upgraded from a studio to a 2 bedroom apartment on arrival which was a very pleasant surprise. The staff were friendly and helpful. The apartment was modern and clean, the carpet looked new. The bathroom was more spacious than the usual hotel room bathroom and... More

We went to Melbourne for a short get away in early January (before the Australian Open). We found Darling Towers on Collins on lastminiute.com.au. For a family of four adults, we booked a two bedroom apartment for average $160/night. Please note this establishment is a serviced apartment (not a hotel/motel). You are provided with towels,toiletries etc but your apartment is... More

What a secret gem. Close to the Shoppping end of Collins street. All the previous reviews we correct. Don't let the exterior of the building put you off or the hike up to the 8th floor to check in daunt you. We stayed for 6 nights and found it great value for money. Upon arrival the lift and conditions of... More

Located on Collins St right outside a tram stop and very close to Swanston St (right in Melb CBD). Our apartment was clean and sufficient for 2 adults and 2 children (under 3yrs). Staff willingly stored our baggage prior to check-in and on departure. Easy walk to many great cafes and places of interest. Check their website for best deals.

I got a pretty good rate on a 2 bedroom apartment when I stayed recently for just one night. It was within walking distance of everything we needed, so location was all important. Might stay here again for similar reasons - it was clean and reasonably spacious with a good layout. I do agree with the reviewers who refer to... More

The only good point about this place is the location that we found very convenient with a young child. As for the quality of the apartment, one word "disgusting". When we initially checked in, the room was not vaccumed and there was a used bandage next to the TV. The bath tub was also dirty. We stayed for four days... More
