Lovely apartments with all amenities. Great location. Walking distance to the crown entertainment and the great restaurants on the south bank. There is a convenience store next to the apartment which is open till 11 pm. I think the apartment where I stayed I.e. 180 city street. Is worth every penny for which they charge.

We loved our stay at Melbourne Short Stay Apartments. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment with one bathroom but found ourselves in a 2 bedroom with 2 bathrooms which was great. Very modern, great city views, able to walk to everything. Friendly, helpful staff. Very quiet at night so we got a good nights sleep (we were on level 13).... More

We had a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment which was fine for 4 people. We were on the fourteen floor with balcony and large windows in both bedrooms. The noise from the traffic was horrendous, we might as well have been right next to the road. No goodnight's of sleep were had. Would not stay here again unless we had... More

We had the 2 bedroom - 2 bathroom, it came with a self contained kitchen, dishwaser, microwave, washing machine and dryer.

We stayed at Epic Apartments to be close to our son. It was an excellent choice. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to put us on the same floor. We will definitely be back. Size of apartments was great for the price.

We've stayed at MSSA's City Road locations previously, and the apartments have been quite good. This time we were allocated 3 nights in one of their new buildings in the block behind - called 'EPIC', it faces onto Kavanagh St which is a bit quieter.
