What do I mean by not relaxing? It was really the long list of rules. I felt rather chastised just by being there. Don't do this, don't do that, you'll be charged for doing this, and you must do that. There was also no feeling of community or service. Reception was in a separate entrance from the access to the...

A great place to stay, close to Southbank, spacious comfortable rooms with the added bonus of a full kitchen and separate bedroom. Great location, close to Southbank (great restaurants and bars), Crown Casino and the CBD.

We drove to Melbourne and found this location very easily. Parking was convenient and secure. It took us less than 10 minutes to walk to the Entertainment / Exhibition Centre and The Casino, it took us only 30 minutes to walk to the MCG.

Staff gave obscure directions to the tower that I am staying. Very dark alleys and too quiet. Very unsafe with the construction going on. Too far of a walk to the yarra river and Train station. Promised late check out by prior phone confirmation via 1800 hotline during office hours. Reception dishonored the confirmation and threatened to charge additional fees... More

It was very difficult to find a hotel/apartment for 3 single people in Melbourne, but this apartment had 3 beds which was great. The kitchen and lounge area were spacious and the bathroom was a good size as well. We did initially get shown to a room with only 2 beds, but when we complained, they moved us straight away....
