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. Note that check-in for EPIC is in the building itself, not the main City Rd... More

We had stayed at Gem apartments previously and had expected the same luxury. This was very basic. And very small. The place was clean but smelled funny. The promised WIFI was non existent. Not very happy teenagers. Whilst our location of 241 City Road was pretty close to Melbourne CBD, it certainly was not a very nice area. Just views... More

The aprtments are almost new and clean and they are well equiped. The view from the upper floors (we are in the 24th floor of 41) is great with a view on the city. The bed is great and the kitchen is very clean. A great experience.

I booked my accommodation through a booking site, I requested a 1bed 1bath apartment for the 2 of us. When we arrived at midnight from Perth I rang through to the number I had been texted earlier...the front desk guy let us in & we went straight up to our apartment on floor 22. We were given a 2bed 2... More

We stayed on the City Road (180) apartments on 9th floor - and have to say it was a welcome change to a hotel. Easy walking distance to the riverfront cafes and restaurants and just 10 minutes into the centre of Melbourne. Staff were great, room was perfect, bright, light and floor to ceiling windows. Reasonably comfortable bed - and... More

Clean, tidy, and had everything we needed. Rooms were big enough, great kitchen and bathroom. Great place to stay for a night or a week. Pool was so nice too! Lounge suite could have been bigger though.

Friendly staff, great location and well appointed accommodation. We were lucky to be upgraded to a large two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, with all mod cons. My friends, who were downstairs a couple of floors, had an equally lovely place - just a bit smaller ;) Easy walking distance to for most attractions along South Bank. A warm welcome from... More
