Walking down the jail like hall to my room should have told me everything - it stank of a million cigarettes and the carpet was beyond grouse sadly my room (21) smelt even worse if that was possible and it wasn't a sneaky ciggie, it is a room well used to smokers!! The room was so close to the railway... More

We selected this hotel due to location and the fact they offered parking. To arrive and be informed that the only parking is what was available on the street (which we had to drive around for 30 minutes to find) gave our short stay in Melbourne a stressful start. My husband questioned the parking once we returned as we noticed... More

I stayed in apartment 5 at 47 Murphy St, South Yarra for $70 a night. On first impression it seemed a reasonable, well equipped, light but dated apartment for the cost. On closer inspection it turned out to be the worst accommodation I’ve stayed in. The water pressure was terrible with bad water hammer. The bathroom sink was blocked. There... More

As usual Darling Towers gave me what i needed, a lovely Apartment right in the heart of South Yarra. Walking distance (5mins) to the train station. Walking distance to all Restaurants and Shops. Apartment catered for all my needs, even a bath to relax in. Fully equipped kitchen perfect.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom Directors Apt in Murphy St and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation after reading mixed reviews. Sure, the carpet looked a bit tired and there were scratches and knocks on some of the furniture but the apartment was spacious, clean and quiet. The updated kitchen was well equipped and the large north... More

Family and I stayed at 32 darling st they own a few different rooms in a few different apartment blocks, which is why your not guaranteed a car space! I will agree with a few of the reviews below 1 the building we were in did have a curry smell but we were at the back and did not get... More

Stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment is nothing to rave about - but this is to be expected as the price was a mere $100 a night. However, I thought the rooms were clean & comfortable. The beds were also comfortable as where the couches. The Kitchen & bathroom was a little dated. There were a few... More

l would not recommend this accommodation for anyone.... We arrived to book in..and the office was in darkness and unattended. No bell to ring...to alert someone we were there. VERY UNWELCOMING. After waiting for someone to turn up for about 20mins we noticed in VERY small writing below the Office Hour times to pick up the phone in the foyer... More

Stay away from this place. Junkies partying through the night. Windows don't close. The stove was from the 1950s the carpets stunk. The toilet seat was rancid. I bought online thinking I was getting a bargain. But I wasted $50. Executive is such a stretch.. Low rent occupants, low rent dive of a place. Go to a backpackers, it will... More
