Stayed at the Short Stay Apartments on a business trip to Melbourne. Alas I hadn't known of these apartments before as they are brilliantly located, spotlessly clean, well equipped and a brilliant place to stay. Great views from the room on the 14th floor. These are self contained apartments so no restaurant attached but there are ample cafes etc within... More

Loved our two night stay. Booked a one bed and was upgraded to a two bed/two bath. The apartment was huge and had spectacular views from the 23rd floor! The tram is right on the doorstep (literally)! Places to eat, supermarkets etc all very close by.

Located a stone throw (I've got a good arm) from the Yarra and right next to a massive entertainment complex with a casino, bars, restaurants and what have you, Melbourne Short Stay is a great place to bunker if you're traveling with a family. Beds are nice, and so is are the apartments in general (we had two different ones,... More

I have stayed in these apartment 5 times in the last two years. I have never been diserpointed with the comfort and great style. They are clean and quiet and very close to all the things you want in Melbourne.

This lovely apartment was ideally situated on the south side of the Yarra river and only a 10 minute walk to the main city centre with all it's vibrant cafés, restaurants and attractions. The apartment itself was clean and well equipped with washing machine/dryer, microwave, oven, fridge freezer, TV, hair dryer, iron and board and dishwasher. The balcony was unfortunately... More

We stayed here a few years ago for a festival & most recently in February for Eminem. They are neat, modern & clean apartments - walking distance to the centre of Melbourne, casino & MCG. Staff were very helpful & friendly. This is the second time we have stayed & it wont be our last.

A very convenient location at the Short Stay apartments not far from the Convention Centre, South Bank and across the bridge to the city. Lots of room to move within this small apartment. Cost is comparable to hotels in the area. Generally clean, tidy, professional staff who happy to assist.

I booked this because the advertising I saw showed spectacular views. Don't be fooled like me, although we were pretty high up there was no view at all as it was blocked completely by other tower blocks so basically we were just looking into other peoples' apartments. Very dreary, dark brown and the dirty balustrade on the balcony didn't help.... More
