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.

After reading some of the negative reviews on Trip Advisor I was a bit worried that I may have made a mistake when I booked 5 nights for a family get-a-way, but my concerns were groundless. If you want a 5 star apartment for a 3 star price then Apartments on Lygon is not for you. If you want a... More

Our family of five just spent four nights in a two bedroom apartment. It was very conveniently located and a good size but that's about all that recommends it. It looked nothing like the pictures on the website. The carpet was stained, the apartment smelled very musty, the fire alarm was on a shelf in the cupboard, the gas stove... More

Freezing cold rooms, heating did not work properly - had to drag mattress out of the bedroom to be near the heater! One tiny couch in room for 2 people. Filthy carpets, dirty blankets which I would not use. Linen needs replacing, tea coffee not replenished each day. Description of location misleading - no close amenities if you need to... More

My husband, in-laws and baby daughter stayed here overnight in a 2 bd apartment but would have comfortably stayed a week or more. It was roomy, clean and comfortable. I stayed in the front room against the street and did find the traffic quite noisy but it did not bother my husband or my baby. We had everything we needed,... More

I stayed at Apartments on Lygon for a month this year whilst doing a work related residency. I had a fantastic time and the apartment was ideal and I made it my home for the duration of my stay. In short....... a great location, very easy access to the city on the tram or walking. Helpful management and staff who... More
