We recently shared a three bedroom apartment with another family and loved it. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped and had stunning views. The city road apartments are convenient to everything and have a grocery and bottle shop over the road. The complex also has an indoor swimming pool (great for the kids) tennis court and a gym.

Great location - much closer walking distance to Crown/Southbank than I anticipated. We had a 2brm/1bath apartment for 3 adults and a 2.5 year old. Spotlessly clean, although I'd expect that as they are so new. The staff on the desk were very friendly and efficient. We were able to buy some milk and cereal from a small selection as... More

We had a two bedroom apartment. There was plenty of space and the kitchen was well equipped when we arrived we didn't think the room had been hoovered-hair and dust all over the floor. We called down to reception who then tried to initially tell us the room hadn't been cleaned and wasn't ready - not the case unless the... More

My family of 6 had a great stay at the apartments in City Rd over a four day period. The location was great - an easy walk to Crown and Southbank and to the City Circle tram. Check in/check was easy and all staff that we came into contact with were polite and well-mannered. The lifts were nice and quick... More

The Short Stay apartments are not bad at all. The location is excellent and their the best feature, with easy access to trams, a walk to the city centre and Southbank precincts. The building facilities (pool and gym) are well kept, as are the furnishings and the balconies are great, decent sized, except that you're not allowed to put anything... More

Sitting on the 26th floor with a superb view of the city, this truly was a great weekend away. The central location to almost everything was fantastic. The facilities on site with the pool, gym, TV to name a few were second to none. The lobby of the building was like something from from an exclusive resort in a tropical... More

24th floor exec apartment looking south out of city tower. Awesome location and fantastic view. Great watching everything going on around. Inside was quiet and spacious for 3 adults and a toddler. No real issues, dont like paying for carparking but thats the norm in the CBD and it seems to be one of the cheapest at $16.50 a night.... More
