It was a great experience staying at this apartment. Very clean and close to CBD. Great view from the apartment. Quiet bedroom ! Good swimming pool! Kitchen was quite spacious. Only thing is the check in process was a bit time consuming.

The complex is quiet and secure and the apartment was extremely spacious and fully furnished with modern furniture (huge leather lounge was so comfy!). The kitchen was well equipped with everything one would need to feel at home. Complimentary Foxtel and wifi... More

We recently stayed in one of their apartments in Whiteman street over Christmas and it was superb. From organizing and booking to arrival and departure it was seamless. Rebecca was outstanding and nothing was a problem and all went smoothly, we even got a late checkout which was very much appreciated. I cant rate these apartments highly enough and if... More

The unit was reasonably priced for the week we were there and we were sharing with my brother and his... More

The apartment was beautiful and made it simple to stay in Melbourne. Pool, gym and BBQ area as well as room facilities made this a perfect, relaxing, carefree holiday. It was truly a gem to stay at :)

Had 5 nights stay with few friends. The apartment is totally awesome. Stayed in 7th floor - very quiet. Safe and secured place. Only 5 minutes walk to Melbourne Convention Centre. You can do cooking (almost complete utensils for cooking are provided) and washing (also enough washing detergent provided). Remember you have to take your own garbage out. Free Wifi!... More
