Ok, staff are friendly and courteous, easy place to access. Staying on the 17th floor tonight, the view is impressive, not impressive as in feeling like an aristocratic looking down on a pitifully poor commoner, more being on the 17th floor looking across the CBD without feeling boxed in. What I love about this place is the last two times... More

Conveniently located with good sized rooms. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was included in our rate and was very good. Lack of free wifi is of concern, particularly when we paid over $600/night for our suite. The surcharge for payment via credit card needs to be reconsidered.

Still a great place to stay in the CBD. Once again there for a girls shopping trip so 2 bedroom, 4 single beds is perfect for us. The spa is fatastic when weary after a long day shopping, the theatres are only a short walk away, excellent eating options close by - the location is ideal. The staff are all... More

Good location with a short walk to Melbourne's sights. Our airconditioning was erratic and would turn itself off after a short time. As we were out a lot, we didnt bother about it although it was chilly when geting out of the shower. The furnishings were a bit dated but the room was clean and comfortable. Our only real complaint... More

Staying three nights, I found this property convenient & comfortable. Its located in Chinatown & that is a huge plus! I had a one bedroom apartment, it had a large balcony & a kingsized bed! Staff were friendly & helpful. Tip - just outside the hotel is a traditional Thai massage business. Amazing!!! After a long day at work I... More

We booked a two bedroom apartment for our recent 4 night stay in Melbourne and were very happy with our choice. The location was brilliant as it really is in walking distance to most attractions in the City centre. The room was clean and new carpets made the room feel especially nice. The whole family agreed that the beds and... More

This is my second stay here. My latest stay was for a girls weekend away. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment. I note they have renovated since my last visit. The carpet has been changed so the floors feel nicer and newer, and the bathrooms are better too. Our air con was playing up and it took a bit to... More
