My parents and me, we booked accidentaly two two bedroom apartments for three nights, but needed only one of the apartments. Directly on the first day, we explained the mistake at the reception and friendly asked for a refund, at least for the second and the third night. For more than an hour we had to talk to hotels.com, wait... More

Problems started right at the start. Whilst checking in at the Powlett Street address we were in fact told that our unit was located in Gipps Street, even though all our booking papers stipulated that it was Polwett Street. When we arrived at our unit in Gipps Street we found the door to our apartment unlocked, anyone could have walked... 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/-

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

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

The only criticism might be that dryer was inefficient and the carpets could be... More
