This was a nice hotel, although the window coverings could be improved as they are not black out and quite dated. If you are spending most of your time in the city then I wouldn't stay here, but if the casino is your preference then it is a good location. The carpets and cushions were stained and I expected more... More

Beautiful, splendid appartement in Melbourne. New and fresh. On walking distance of the city. Also ideal for the Australian open. Courts are nearby. Clean apartments; nice desk people. I don't need 200 letters minimum to desire these appartement. One word is enough: beautiful.

I stayed in Victoria towers 4 days end of December 2014 - have everything you need and is perfectly located. Just far and close enough away from everything. I spent very little time in the room but its a lovely apartment to come back to after a hard day shopping. Would definitely recommend -made my trip to Melbourne awesome

This property is a large 34 storey apartment building which the owners appear to be renting out due to not being able to sell them all. The apartments have all you need for a stay. The furnishings are spartan and the sofa and cushions were stained in the apartment we were in. The bed was the least comfortable one we... More

I have stayed in two Shortstay apartments on City Road in Melbourne. The first was Southbank Central in a two bedroom suite with an amazing view over the city, St Kilda, Port Melbourne and beyond. It was spacious with two separate bathrooms and plenty of living room space. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed and with four... More

Having booked through hotel club the address given was 187 city rd, but upon booking in were told to go Epic apartments at 88 Kavanagh st. No complaints as I'm sure most rooms and building with these guys seem very similar (stayed in Southbank one last yr). Room was nice and modern, clean and had all appliances and utensils needed...

I stayed here for over a week while working on an event at the convention centre. For that purpose it was very conveniently located and comfortable. The apartment was a decent size and although nothing too flash very easy to stay in. It's slightly odd checking in via the real estate agency next door, don't expect a traditional reception service,... More

We stayed at a high floor apartment with a balcony that has a panoramic view of the city. The apartment has full cooking facilities and even a dishwasher and tumble dryer. For the price we pay, this is much better than a typical hotel room. The swimming pool is also nice.

Melbourne Short Stay Apartments are notorious for not giving a stuff about their guests. My started off on the wrong foot when I merely enquired as to whether there are parking restrictions outside the building where I was staying.
