These apartments are starting to look in need of a face lift from the outside and this was confirmed on entering. Wardrobe door missing, a few tiles missing. Cosmetically they are run down, but the rooms were clean and tidy. Our two bedroom apartment was right on Lygon St with a tram stop outside but the noise was not to... More

These family run apartments are wonderful and have an extremely friendly aura. They are in a perfect location. I am a local North Carlton resident and my mother recently stayed. An excellent spot for visitors when you don't have space at home. The staff were only too happy to help with any small request. The room was clean and spacious... More

The location of this hotel is perfect - right in the thick of things. However, there was no parking (as advertised), we were not given instructions for the key and the fridge broke. Don't pay top dollar!

I booked the hotel sight unseen and before reading reviews, so was expecting something a little better. Even though I chose this hotel based on the price and suitability for a family group (myself, my parents in their 70s, and my 9 year old niece), I was very disappointed. Good features were general cleanliness, nice shower head, location near a... More

This was ideal for our stay in melbourne. The building is old but our room was quite nice and big. Last time we stayed in the city in a small room at double the price. Will definitely stay here again. Very friendly staff. No lifts though.

Wanted somewhere close to our meeting so this seemed the perfect spot. Booked online using booking.com apartments looked fine for what we needed - maybe more updated photos are required to give travellers a true picture. Arrived at reception not a soul in sight, waited for a bit than rang the nightbell. Receptionist arrived, handed over keys, said there were... More

We stayed here for one night. Upon arrival the staff member was rude and not very helpful at all. The apartment was old and uncomfortable. The noise from lygon street was way too loud, cold bedrooms as there is only a heater in lounge room. The bed was so hard and the pillow was like a rock. Only good thing... More

Good location and was good for the money. Staff were very accomodating. Tram stop right outside and 2 mins to beautiful restaurants and 15 to the city. Bath wasn't cleaned which was annoying and had to fox the foxtel myself as they wanted me to wait til morning for some reason, but everything else was great

I stayed here with my family over Easter. We paid AUD250 per night for a 2 bedroom apartment. I believe the photos on the property's website are "glammed up" and misleading. Apart from the great location in Carlton, this run down shabby unit offers nothing other than a roof over your head, The bathroom had been refurbished, and was by... More
