Standard clean, comfortable apartment, in good location in Melbourne, especially if you are going to a show at Her Majesty's or the Princes Theatre, also close to the Museum. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen clean with enough crockery and cutlery for exactly two people! I do sometimes wish these places would give you a saucepan big enough to cook... More

We experienced several moves over the first couple of days due to poor air conditioning in 2 rooms and leaks from the roof in another. While the air con in the final room we were moved to worked OK it was very noisy.

1. Not exactly in the CBD, although it advertised itself as it is 2. The service counter actually closes at 10pm, or 11pm, depending on whether weekend of weekday. So, you can already imagine how troublesome this would be when you need any assistance at night. 3. Security, could be at risk, even though the guests would have been given... More

Stayed in the 2-bedroom unit with a colleague for work. Not the most beautifully decorated place but it is the very essence of functional. Everything you could possibly need was provided and for the 2 weeks we were there, there wasn't much to complain about within the room itself. Front desk stuff is always friendly and the location is really... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. The young man on the desk upon arrival was so helpful. We were given a complimentary late check out after discussing our travel plans. He suggested some excellent cafes and shopping districts. The rooms were dated but comfortable. The unit had a good layout with kitchenette and lounge. The air-conditioning was on the blink and...

We stayed in room 204 and the bathroom / central cooling fan was so loud that it kept us awake most of the nite since the rooms are small and it echoes. My husband had a big interview the next morning so it was most inconvenient. Having said that the gentlemen at reception handled it professionally and we were moved... More

We had stayed in these apartments several years ago and were pleased with them. However with all the surrounding tall apartment blocks now there these apartment are quite dark and dreary. The location is great for the city, surrounding coffee shops good and close to public transport. The staff were helpful.

We do have one corner of the building which recieves a little less natural light due to surrounding buildings. On your next stay I would suggest you request a room at... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, especially the man on reception in the evening, he has a great sense of humor. Breakfast was delivered on time and to a high standard. Free WiFi was a welcome change from previous hotels I have stayed at. Would highly recommend.

I stayed here for a couple of night recently and it was ok, but there is much better accommodation in Melbourne that is more comfortable and contemporary and the same or cheaper price. The service was fairly good when I checked in, so no problems there. However the room was a bit old and tired and although tea and coffee... More
