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

We had a 2 night stay here as our first stop in Australia. Our apartment block was on Kavanagh Street and from here it was around a 10 minute walk to get across to the centre of the city on the North side of the river. The apartment itself was spotless, modern and with a great view. We paid for... More

The usual catch with serviced apartment is the lack of washing liquid, dishwasher powder etc, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found all these amenities, plenty of cooking utensils and a very comfortably furnished apartment in a good residential tower. The two bedrooms were nice, with good bedding and good internet, although one bedroom had very poorly adjusted windows... More

Two couples sharing a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment at 180 City Rd from 24 April - 28 April. It started with a wonderful warm greeting from a lovely young lady - Tegan. A really good location, close to the Boardwalk and the City, everything within close walking distance. We had a 17th floor apartment with a really nice view... More

From check in times being wrong to being moved 4 yes 4 times in 3 days due to heater and dish washer not working, then staff moved us to wrong room, then shower head broke in the third room. Staff were lovely but managment were unprofessional and extremely rude! Do not recommend, worst hotel we have ever stayed... More

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
