Stayed in the City Tower and had a very enjoyable time. We were travelling with some family so a three bedroom apartment was perfect for our group. The location is excellent with the Crown Casio precinct just a short stroll away. The room was clean and well appointed. Will stay here again when travelling to Melbourne.

We stayed here for 8nights with our 7month baby and it was perfect! We were on the 23rd floor and the views were amazing! The one bedroom apartment was a good size and was great having a washing machine and tumble dryer! The location is great- a short walk down to the Southbank which had lots of great restaurants and...

We stayed at the South Point apartments on the 19th floor. We had arrived early and the staff was great in getting us an apartment before the 2pm check in time (although a little disorganised and confusing). The apartment itself was clean and had fantastic views of the city. It's location was convenient and walking distance to Southgate shopping precinct.... More

We stayed at Sentinel Tower. Average rooms but I didn't pay to stay at the Ritz. It was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. We were in walking distance of the Melbourne Visitor Shuttle stop, art prescient, Crown complex, Southgate, Eureka tower, Botanical gardens, aquarium and more. Loved the security factor. Will stay there again. If you drive... More

Stayed for 4 days in this very comfortable room, with a good view. The room had us staying in the Epic apartments at 118 kavanagh st, with a good view over the city.

Great apartment to stay if visiting Melbourne. We were on the 41st floor and had a wonderful view of the city. The apartment was spacious, modern, clean and well equipped. There was a gym and swimming pool available for use. It was only a short walk - about 10 - 15 mins to the Southbank of the river. The views... More

This particular property is awful. Its approx 15 years old (staff informed me) and looks every bit of it.
