Negatives - Very very old and dated, noisy (on main road), peeling paint, worlds worst "kitchen", bathroom extremely dated (new taps in the shower), painted tiles in the bathroom with peeling tiles, worn floor tiles, enamel missing from the bath and sink., shower door faulty. I could go on. Positives - air con works, nice cafes just across the road... More

Excellent location, comfortable bed, super compact kitchen. You get everything you want to make your stay a memorable and a comfortable one. Only negative point is; housing only once a week. Our stay of 10 days we felt like home and enjoyed a lot. don't lose the room key, they charged AUS$100/-

Recently stayed for a week, rather dated, but okay for a week, bed was great, bedroom was cool even on 36 degree days, as was the apartment, kitchen needs some more utensils and the likes, lounge needs replacing. mold on shower but over all was okay, liveable for a week. Quiet even for a busy street, would stay again if... More

We bought a deal voucher as the price seemed good and the web pictures lead us to believe that this place would be quite good for us. We were staying with out 2 year old daughter and we made this clear. We arrived early and just asked to stash our bags. Reception staff were disinterested and rude. There is a... More

As far as budget accommodation goes this was the best I have stayed at. Pro's - * Close proximity to tram links to pretty much anywhere you want to go. * Friendly and helpful staff (mostly with directions). * Spacious apartment, big comfy bed, cooking facilities, TV and good powerful shower. Con's - * Clean when we arrived, but no... More

Hi we were at St Vincents Hospital with a loved one as a terminally ill patient, our apartment was ideally located and well fitted out for our week's stay, reception were always helpful, rates very fair for a 2 br, dining options and iga nearby terrific. The only criticism might be that dryer was inefficient and the carpets could be... More

We stayed here recently and have used these apartments before when we need to stay in Melbourne. We have always found them clean and comfortable, yes they are not the latest fit outs but are fantastic value for money. We found that there was everything there we needed, the kitchen had everything you would expect, same with the bathroom. The... More

We stayed here for 4 nights recently. Yes it is budget accomodation but that doesnt mean you let the place run down! Outlay of room is terrible. Bathroom would be the worst i have seen EVER in a motel/apartment! If u weigh more than 50 kilos dont bother, the shower door is only big enough for a small child!! The... More

Thank you so very very much for a pleasant, easy and very welcoming stay. Elizabeth at reception was beyond fantastic. The apartment was clean, functional and comfortable. We have been trying to find a home away from home for 6 months for monthly doctor and hospital trips for my son and we have now found it. Again, thank you so... More

Modern facilities, comfortable beds, secure & quiet, parking building only $10/day, really good location. There was only petty little complaints about this place & these could've been addressed quite easily, but reception is down the street & we were there over Christmas, so couldn't be bothered disrupting our plans to go & ask for them to be fixed. The extremely... More
