Stayed in a 2 bedroom Executive self contained apartment last week. Room was clean but average condition on walls, furniture and fittings. Several patches of walls where paint is chipped, dirty marks and knocks on walls, big hole on leather sofa, towel rails almost falling off, tap handle at kitchen sink fell off first time using!!! We arranged another pull... More

I knew this place when it was brand new so after some eight years I'm happy to report that the management is still keeping it in a good condition! There are some minor issues, like the door wouldn't close properly and there were some funny stains on the wall and on the carpet, but the cleanliness level is good and... More

Good sized apartments with 1 twin and 1 double room in ours. Shared bathroom. Good sized living area and well appointed kitchen (Washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, microwave). Large flat screen TV. Apartment was clean and tidy on arrival. Situated jut on the north edge of the CBD but near to numerous shops, bars and restaurants. Good value for money.

Very affordable. Found in world but got a better price booking direct. Booked king size and found ourselves in a 2br apartment with balcony. Close to QV markets, Chinatown, Bourke St Mall (all easy walks). Aldi supermarket next door and trams 100m. Train a block away. Close to RCH and Women's hospital. RMIT across the road! Car parking $23 but... More

have stayed there a few times now and always find it quite nice. Room amenities are good with all the mod cons as well as gym, pool and tennis court. Close to CBD and public transport. My biggest gripe with this place is the service, always recheck your booking as the staff can never get it right and it always... More

I booked a two bedroom apartment on line with only Tripadvisor reviews to go by. I made the booking because it was a great price at the time for this size apartment. Parking was an extra charge per day (unlimited entry & exits with an electronic door opener) but so convenient as the lift goes directly from the car park... More

What a great location to have a mini stay in the city. We drove in and parked overnight. We didn't need the car though. We spent the day wandering around Melbourne. When we were exhausted we came back to our gorgeous apartment with city views southward and relaxed by the heated pool and spa. These apartments are perfect for a... More

It's a nice place, location and facilities. However it lacks refinement like poor internet (drops out and slow), single beds pushed together as a 'double', so you really fill the hump in the middle and lastly you can hear the traffic at night or the pub next door.

Firstly the apartment looks fantastic for what you're paying for, we had a 2 bedroom apartment with a bathroom each and a very nice lounge room and kitchen. the beds are comfortable, the rooms have heaters and a TV in each room as well as the lounge room. Only negatives would be the bathrooms didn't have any fans or exhaust... More
