Just returned from a 2 night stay at Harbour view apartments. Fantastic position and great price. Everything you need is within distance. Etihad across the road, Spencer street 5 min walk as is the Markets. Plenty to choose from for eating

I really cannot find even one positive to say about this hotel. Room was very small and only had half a wardrobe because the hot water service was in the other half!!!. The kitchenette comprised of a small microwave and small sink. Shower cubical was the smallest I have ever seen. We stayed three nights and our bed was not... More

Don't be fooled by the nice photos on Wotif. While the location is close to Spencer Street, this is disgusting and dirty. Dust on bedside tables, hair in bed, walls falling, no soap supplied, grimy shower with tiles coming off, aircon completely ineffective - what more can I say. A youth hostel would appear 5 star compared to HarbourView. We... More

Let's start with the pros...it is close to Etihad Stadium and the Docklands precinct, and multiple tram stops. The El Sole restaurant next door is also not too bad for a simple family meal. And that's it. Now the cons...having booked online for 5 people and paid in full, we arrived from the airport to be informs by a very... More

Recently had our second stay at the Harbour View based purely on the fact that there were three of us travelling together, one couple and an extra family member. As on our previous visit we booked the "One Bedroom Apartment" which has a queen bed and a separate single bed in a small but comfortable single bedroom. Absolutely ideal situation... More

Very convenient - car park and tram stops right next to entrance. Southern Cross Station (Skybus to airport) and Coles supermarket are a 5 mins walk. 2 bedroom apartment is spacious with air-con and heater. Separate toilet and bathroom. I'm not sure what's standard in Australia but the housekeeping staffs only changed towels and cleared bins during our stay -... More

A fair property that could become great with some attention to details. The black dust in the bathroom, the chipped paint along the wall, the constant foul odor in the hallway, plus the inconsistent reception between rooms are some of the details that need to be addressed. We had to change rooms because the plumbing from the bathroom leaked and... More

My partner and I needed a room for our week stay in Melbourne to celebrate both our birthdays. We didn't want to pay heaps for a fancy hotel when we were going to be out sightseeing most the day and night. After spending ages looking for hotels and finding everything was quite expensive, I was recommended harbouview. A great pice... More

Stayed for a weekend with four other girlfriends. A criteria was that we all had separate beds. This was the only place we could find that met that need at a reasonable price. The apartment had three bedrooms, two bathrooms a little lounge/dining room and kitchen. The place was clean and tidy when we arrived. Even though we were street... More

We stayed for 3 nights recently and we found the hotel more than met all our needs. I have to say we didn't expect much based on reading the previous reviews, however we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, the location was great with a tram stop right outside the front door, 2 min walk to a...
