We stayed at a high floor apartment with a balcony that has a panoramic view of the city. The apartment has full cooking facilities and even a dishwasher and tumble dryer. For the price we pay, this is much better than a typical hotel room. The swimming pool is also nice.

Melbourne Short Stay Apartments are notorious for not giving a stuff about their guests. My started off on the wrong foot when I merely enquired as to whether there are parking restrictions outside the building where I was staying. The young inexperienced staff member said "I would have no idea". Really? So you go to work in this place EVERY... More

My wife, son and I stayed at these apartments just before Christmas. We found them to be new, clean and tidy, although a little small. But hey, we weren't in Melbourne to stay in an apartment all day. The close proximity to the South Bank and the City made it a quick stroll to all the offerings of the CBD.... More

This hotel was having renovations so at first glance, it did not look welcoming. We were directed to another entrance on the other side of the building and as it was after 6pm, had some trouble gaining entrance. However, all worries disappeared as soon as we saw the apartment. Beautiful, new and clean - although there seemed to be a... More

Stayed three nights in a one bedroom apartment in Melbourne Tower. The apartment was clean with excellent facilities, close to Crown Casino complex, Eureka Tower and within walking distance of Flinders Street Station and trams. Parking was easy, although it took a while to find the allocated parking space. Getting to the Apartment when you are unfamiliar with city driving... More

We came over to Melbourne for a weeks holiday over the New Year period 2014/15. Short Stay apartments were extremely easy to use with regards to booking & payment. They were very helpful over the phone with organising everything and made for an easy day on our arrival and getting in to the apartment. The apartment was very tidy &... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for three nights situated in Kavangh Street, the short stay staff from booking, receptionist and cleaning staff deserve more then just a excellent report.
