We have never stayed on this side of Melbourne before and found that this accommodation was central to what we had planned to see around the city. The Casino was only a block away and therefore we had no need to line up for parking, just a short walk away. We also discovered that the lovely South Melbourne Markets were... More

There were three of us in a 2 bedroom apartment (one double, one twin share). The room was not on City Rd but the street behind, Kavanagh St. Which was not a big deal, less than a minute walk, but had it been a stormy day and we had to walk with our bags around it could have been a... More

We generally stay in hotels during conferences but all the facilities they offer for the extra price is wasted when you spend all day at an exhibition. We decided on Melbourne Short Stay Apartments because they had just what we needed at an excellent price. We wanted quiet, clean secure. We never eat at the hotel we're staying as we... More

Apartment at Epic...118 Kavanagh St on Southbank was perfect for a 3 day catch up with a good friend. Very clean with everything that was needed. Close by to restaurants on Southbank and the Casino and a short walk to the Art Gallery, which is the first stop for the Red a Tourist bus. Well priced, in fact cheaper than... More

Stayed over a few nights with family for a short visit. Location is a little far from CBD central by walking (especially in winter!) but is close to casino, convention & exhibition centre and most amenities. Very spacious, all kitchen utensils provided which is handy for cooking. Heating is only in living room so leaving the bedroom door open is... More

Short stay to attend conference at nearby conference centre. The apartments are basic but very clean and come with everything you would expect. The location is good with waterfront nearby and next to the casino complex. Price is reasonable

I had the unfortunate experience of having to stay at 180 City Road for over 3 weeks due to a relocation to Melbourne. The apartment itself was fine overall however the staff running the business need some lessons in finance and manners. Payment was deducted at the beginning of my stay yet when I asked for a GST receipt I... More

These apartments are located a couple of blocks from the river front in Southbank making a quick walk to good restaurants. The rooms are quite big, with kitchen and laundry facilites - making it a good alternative to a motel room if you are going to be staying more than a couple of days. The car parking was under cover... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 26 floor. Great location. The staff were very accommodating and nothing was a problem. Clean apartment and full size kitchen was a plus with a full family.
