If you can't afford five star and stay here, don't whinge about this place! There is nothing worse than a person who wants 5 star, pays... More

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

This apartment was below average, definitely not as nice as the photos. The location was the only good thing about it. Kitchen floor was sticky, furniture was stained. Onsite management unhelpful. TV did not work, they gave us a antenna lead and told us to move the TV ourselves to the other side of the room to plug it in... More

The position of these apartments probably helps. They are in a great position for dining out and for proximity to the University of Melbourne but that is pretty much where it begins and ends. I agree with what everyone else has said. The apartment I was in was reasonably spacious but when I arrived the reception was closed with a... More

Apartment was okay, quite basic. Supplied Continental Breakfast was boring, go to Brunetti's instead for an amazing breakfast. Stairs area smelt and the reception was not efficient, and not friendly. Very good position 2 blocks from North Carlton restaurants and not noisy from the road

How do I put this - I agree with pretty much everyone who's reviewed the apartments. There's good and bad. Spacious with good bathroom, but the sofa was small. Aircon in living room only, but floor fan for bedroom. Rather tired looking and didn't match the picture on the street sign. Good for Rathdowne Village and 15-min walk to Brunswick... More

These are not the most modern apartments but the they are spacious, clean, the beds comfortable and the shower excellent. Parking at the door was very welcome with small children and it was very quiet at night. 5 min walk to Rathdowne Village and great park for kids.
