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

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
