What I loved what the peace and quiet at night. Close to the Docklands restaurants as I had a wedding reception to go to. Was within walking distance of it. Easy parking - except that somebody had parked in my space. Will stay here again

Location - Stayed in the Boyd building with views of melbourne and the wharf. The location is above plenty of little Convenience stores, Alcohol shops and restaurants to serve your needs. The area was very quiet except for Saturday night but any street noise did not interfere with sleep etc. Tram stops are within very easy walking distance with the... More

This private collection of apartments is a bit random. You could be lucky to get a great room or an ordinary one.
