Very disappointed. Room was dirty, microwave had spilt coffee all over it. Built up grime/mould on bathroom floor. Dirty power points. Doesn't appear room had been properly cleaned. Didn't even have a quilt cover, just a quilt with a sheet on top and bottom.

Great spot for a base, but very tired rooms. Peeling paint, power points falling out, dripping taps, and musty smell, so if you were looking for luxury you missed the mark. However the room was clean, and sheets good quality. the free wi-fi is pretty hit and miss, could only get it to work on the balcony.

We stayed at the apartment for one night on the weekend and what we received was far worse than we expected. The room only cost $130 so we obviously didn't expect a lavish room however what we received was far from okay. Firstly, I must point out the service from the lady at the front desk was great. She was... More

Bit mouldy around the edges. We picked the place based on it being cheap and cheerful. It's not particularly cheerful. The room was not very well cleaned, with earplugs floating in the toilet and other people's rubbish in corners and behind the bedside tables. It was a bit musty smelling, much smaller than it looked on the website, noisy and... More

After viewing the rooms on online, I thought that with this price, the quality could be just okay. I was wrong. As my son and I arrived, we were blown away by how small, dirty and outdated the room was. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, the rooms noisy but worst of all was the bathroom. Tiles missing from the shower... More

My third visit to the Australia Open and have always stayed at these apartments. Excellent position, able to walk to the tennis. The decor has been updated. Warmly welcomed by reception. Rooms clean, towels changed daily. Flat screen TV, free wi-fi. Why would you stay at the Hilton when you can have a comfy bed at half the price?
