Girls weekend away, 4 of us stayed in this lovely apartment, clean, quiet, spacious & tidy. Massive courtyard outside, perfect for sunny day sippers. 3 singles and a queen bed provided, ample sleeping spots for us. Take care on the stairs when you walk in, can be tricky negotiating your luggage up the narrow staircase, however provides a good laugh... More

Good value for money although towels were not provided (small oversight) but I was already nude hopping into shower before I realised. The shower recess had mould around the edges where they had sealed years earlier. The buffet breakfast included was average but was enough. The room on the 16th floor had good views of the river & Casino looking... More

We were lucky enough to get a very large apartment on the top floor which across the Melbourne Central Business District and the river. There is a tram station pretty much opposite which is free within the central area. It was approximately 10 minutes walk to Southern Cross station and less than 5 minutes walk to the Neighbours Tour booking... More

We booked expecting beautiful riverside apartment in a 17 story building. little did we know that the so called last room available was arouaround the corner in an annex. They dont show pictures of these rooms or tell you that you willbe subject to constant noise of king street revellers, yelling, car horns. At 12am, 2am and 4am i went... More

I'm sorry you felt you did not receive the expected apartment type. Photos of the annex are posted online and show the annex apartments both inside and from a street view. The apartment you booked was the last available apartment however hotel receptions need to manage their rooms in case of unexpected events and had we known you were not... More

Unbelievably huge apartments. Have facilities to cook in if you so desire. Location was perfect. They are very clean, the higher ones have great views especially night time. Would definitely stay here again. Good value for money

I have just returned from a night out in the city with a friend and was overwhelmed by the customer service and the value for money that we received staying here. Excellent location, safe, secure, clean and quiet. I have stayed in many apartments all over Melbourne usually paying over twice the amount. I'll be staying here from now on!

Booked a one bedroom apartment on a value for money deal through Agoda. Good-sized apartment, considerably clean and very comfy. Excellent staff, very thoughtful by checking-in us early as we had a long flight. However, the cleaners did not do a very good job as they took about 10 minutes to "clean-up" the room. When they left, I can still... More

Staying at these apartments was a pleasure from beginning to end. The entrance is in a charming little Melbourne alley and has welcoming staff. The apartment we stayed in overlooked the river and Southbank which was lots of fun to watch the world go by. It is easy walking distance to trams, to Bourke and Collins Streets and all the... More

We were on the 13th floor I think, large 2 bedroom apt, it was a little dated, but overall great size, clean, comfortable beds, reallt enjoyed our stay there, staff were helpful and polite. One problem were the stairs a bit tricky as we had a pram!!
