As soon as I entered the room there was a terrible smell, the carpet was stained and smelly and the bathroom, especially the shower were filthy. Not at all relaxing because of the lack of cleanliness. Don't even bother!!!

Very central location to Carlton, Queen Vic Markets and easy access to Trams. I spent 3 nights in a 2 bed standard apartment at a very affordable price. One room had two singles together and the other bedroom had a single bed. Plenty of cupboard space in both rooms. Kitchen was functional and clean and the living area was a... More

Stayed here for a night, room looked semi decent until I found the left side of the bed sheet stained with cigarette ash from top to bottom - there were disgusting black streaks of the stuff. Informed the lady at reception who did not have a very good attitude, she couldn't care less. Check in was alright and speedy. Found... More

This accommodation is cheap and therefore you get what you pay for.The size of the apartment was decent enough for as we only used it really to sleep. Central location just behind Queen Vic market and you can walk in town just 20 min.

This was the worst serviced apartment we stayed in. The bedrooms are tiny, kitchen is small and poorly equipped, air-con was noisy, balcony full of cigaret buts, the garage is filthy with rubbish smell everywhere. The only positive is a great location.

Reading other reviews i was a bit unsure in staying here but our room was more then fine! Myself and 2 other friends stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for a weekend. The balcony was tiny but the rest of the apartment was tidy, clean and could check out later at 11am free of charge which was handy. The size... More

Not new but consistent accommodation, better than "just a room" Cook top & fridge,makes it self serve living. Clean & tidy air-conditioned but older style. Staff are helpful. We regularly stay there when visiting Melbourne. Not near the casino or M.C.G. but could easily get there. It's Melbourne..

This accommodation is cheap and therefore you get what you pay for. I have stayed here in the past and have noticed a major decline in standards. The location is great if you want to spend your time at the Vic Markets as it is only a hop, skip and jump away. If you don't care where you stay as... More

you get what you pay for....cheap standard room, lazy cleaningness on there behalf. Room was quiet (ask for it) and at least had air conditioning. Central location just behind Queen Vic market. I've traveled throughout China and gotta say it's what a typical Chinese hotel would be like. i found the staff to be pleasent.
