4 adults stayed in this apartment which had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The living area was quite large so we had lots of space to move in and the kitchen facilities were great. The position of the apartment was excellent as it was right next to the river but, as it was just outside the CBD, we did not... More

I stayed here for three nights while I was working in Melbourne. The location felt out of the way when I hopped out of a taxi, because it's in a side/back street right next to an overpass, though amazingly close to the arts centre. However I soon found out that it's only a minute or two walk to the river,... More

I stayed at 28 Southgate in June 2015. I was travelling with friends and my wife and 10 month old son. A self catered apartment was ideal for us as we had the option of cooking ourselves and cooking food for our young child. However I must say that the images on the website were greatly different from the reality... More

Rang to book apartment. Took two days to ring us back. We also emailed – it took two days to respond (We were told our email went into spam). Noisy – even with double glazing – on the CityLink side on 5th floor. Truck noise penetrated the double glazing especially in the bedroom & kept us awake. Due to the... More

If you are staying in Melbourne, this is the place to stay. You can walk to most places in Melbourne CBD easily from here. Trams are very close and easy to use. The apartments are a little dated, but with the great views and location it is easy to overlook that. We paid the extra $10 per night for parking... More

This trip to Melbourne was for a family celebration and we were needing accommodation that could provide three bedrooms and two bathrooms, over four nights/days, and at a price that wouldn't break the bank! The apartment we got through Southbank Apartments, at 28 Southgate Ave, ticked all the boxes and was perfectly positioned for easy access to Melbourne inner city... More

Hopefully this review is going in the right place as I'm certain that this thread refers to a group known as Southbank Apartments that operate a number of accommodation facilities around Southbank. Stayed in Melbourne for a weekend for the Comedy Festival. I booked this apartment through Wotif for $350 total. This apartment is on the 18th floor of 1... More
