I stayed here with my husband and two sons and the positive were the swimming pool (although the boys had a hard time with the chlorine) and the handy location for shopping (QV building). The booking was disorganised so we were upgraded but when I called to meet the person to get the keys as arranged, she had gone home... More

For the money we paid to stay the week - well we got what we paid for. Location is fantastic, close to everything however the room wasnt that great. Lounge was revolting and leather was torn and tearing away all over it. Windows were really filthy also. I would stay there again, however if I had a few extra hundred... More

We arrived to a woman named tui texting us when it would be suitable for her to meet us to let us in. We then were showed up to the room that on first glance seemed ok, awful decor, but ok. Once we put our bags down and looked around we noticed just how bad it was. Firstly, whoever cleaned... More

I booked this apartment which was on Liverpool street as opposed to Elizabeth street. Nevertheless, I really liked being tucked away with cute restaurants opposite and a nice ambience given China Town is a stone's throw away. The apartment was excellent and felt very homely. I had my family visit over the weekend and they loved the wooden floors and... More

Our apartment was given to us in a very filthy state!!!! Broken furniture, soiled toilet, food stuck on walls, chairs, table and kitchen benches. The beds were very uncomfortable and I don't think it had been dusted in about a year... A very big disappointment for the money spent.... After complaining to one of the managers we were sent two...

Firstly, be careful when you book, even though it says 250 Elizabeth street, Melbourne, there are actually other apartments and we were placed at Liverpool Street. No issues with it, was close to a lot of nice bars, great facilities. Apartment was fine, nothing to write home about, it was clean enough and we don't ask for a lot so... More

They are what you pay for and what we expected from a three star place. We contacted the apts as we wanted two single beds in a room for the children which... More

Perfectly situated in CBD Melbourne to enjoy the laneways, restaurant and cafe's. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and modern. The beds are great. I liked the idea of having a private apartment as well. Highly recommended.
