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. Easy stay and cheap for what you get. Everything is about a 15 walk. Supermarket directly downstairs across the road (food works). Woollies and... More

The apartments are modern and well located, close to Casino and Convention Centre. There is a lot of noise if the bedroom is facing the road at night and the morning if you are a light sleeper be aware of this.

Only stayed for two nights.The bedroom was great and comfortable, but had to pay extra for Wifi. Clean bathroom, the washing machine and dryer were provided as well. Friendly staffs. Quite a walk to the city center (around 10-15 minutes)

Stayed at these apartments twice now. Clean and great location. Easy walk into south bank and the casino. So many choices for dinning the kitchen will seem pointless. Just somewhere to make coffee and toast for breakfast. If you have this place on your short list then I recommend giving it a try.

Stayed 3 nights in July with family. It's good value for a 2 bedroom apartment in Southbank. The only place that is happening in neighbourhood is Casino. Although you could walk to the city it's not exactly the most convenient location. However it's a good place to stay with a car as it has ample parking (remember to book!) The... More
