This place looks nice but it's all surface. One of the lifts was broken and the queues at the two remaining lifts were long. Despite several complaints the room wasn't serviced and there was a pile of wet towels in the room after a week and a half. The internet is ridiculously overpriced and slower than posting a letter.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for a week; the apt was facing the SouthBank river. Location was good, a supermarket just below the building and Crown Casino just round the corner. In the evenings, we walked from Melbourne Central station back to the apartment and it took around half an hour. The weather was just nice (+/- 8... More

We stayed for a week in a three room apartment. The view over the city was really nice and it was perfectly located for our conference at the convention center. BUT when we arrived the hallways were smelling like puke and when we entered the room it smelled like pee. Unfortunately the smell of cleaner to cover it did not... More

Stayed for a long weekend (4 nights) with small kids. Received an upgrade to an apartment with two bathrooms. Early check-in at no extra cost. Staff was very helpful e.g. with PTV myki cards. Rooms on 29th floor with view towards the sea - hilarious, also at night. Room was very well equipped, supermarket to shop food was just across... More

The one bedroom apartment was clean and spacious, well equipped and had great views. Centrally located 10 mins walk to Crown and Southbank, 20 mins walk to South Melbourne Markets and a good base to use during a weekend of fun, football at the MCG and groovy bars to sit and enjoy the twilight evening hues.

Stayed for three nights in late May 2014. Reasonably well located on a City road near Southbank. Apartment was fairly clean, good size, double glazed and kitchen had what we needed. The bed wasn't comfortable and neither was the couch. Bathroom is a good size but as usual water pressure was ordinary. TV with Foxtel. Overall a serviceable apartment.
