I loved staying at this apartment. It was ENORMOUS! Fabulous views of the Yarra! Nice and clean and a great place to stay for the night. Good location as well. Highly recommend for a family holiday :)

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 stayed 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment in the higher levels of the tower (main building). The apartment was very spacious and clean. There is a bit of wear and tear, with stains on the carpet and some wear on the kitchen cupboards but everything functions fine and the kitchen is well supplied. Very central and a 5... More

Very good, central location and comfortable hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious. Front desk was excellent in helping us arrange activities and excurions before and during our stay. Would certainly recommend to friends and family.

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 2 young children. We stayed a Saturday night which was so noisy that we were still awake at 2am. Not the fault of the apartment as the noise was coming from a nearby club but being on the 17th floor I didn't think it would be that loud. To make matters worse... More
