There are no lifts, the stairs are old and smelly, I got bitten all over my legs by bed bugs and had massive welts (and as a model this affected my work as had to take 3 days off for them to heal) I tried to call reception 20 times over two days to inform them but no one answered... More

Stayed for 6 nights while visiting family. On the plus side well located and reasonably quiet.Also one of the lower priced 1 bedroom apartments. we paid $150 p/n. However we were dissapointed in the quality of accommodation. The furnishings are old and tired and the not well maintained. Venetions broken a dirty and carpet worn. It has all the extras... More

I was in Melbourne for a week on business and stayed at this property. It is the older style of accommodation with steps not lifts.The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean if not a little tired in appearance. The shower was over the bath and being a shorter person a bit of a step in... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in August. On the day of arrival, before leaving Perth, I called to confirm our late arrival, and was told by a helpful lady on the phone that "they are always there"so it didn't matter we were late. I also requested a car parking space as we had a hire car. she assured me... More

First of all, the reviews on here are pretty much all spot on based on what I experienced staying at 43 Caroline St. But, to be honest, when you pay less than $100 a night for somewhere in South Yarra, luxury isn't on the cards. 43 Caroline is based in an actual apartment block where people pay rent to live...

I wish I had read the Tripadvisor reviews before staying here as they are totally accurate. Horrible 1 bedroom apartment with filthy venetian blinds and awful bathroom. Rotting wooden window frames, black with mould. Bedside light didn't work and on pulling out the bed to see why found a faulty Kambrook extension plug thing with exposed wires. How they have... More

There's nothing good about this place. Dirty, smelly, tired, uncomfortable and totally lacking in privacy. Listed as "executive" accommodation we walked in and were instantly depressed by how shabby and poorly furnished it was. On opening the dirty curtains and seeing a block of apartments opposite staring straight into the full space we just wanted to get out immediately. Just... More

When I arrived from the airport, I noticed a peculiar smell on the stairs as I approached my apartment on the top floor. It smelt like strong, sweet talcum powder trying to cover up something very unpleasant. The apartment was functional but the bathroom was mouldy and very grubby. The bed was clean and there were a couple of free... More

Got a cheap rate for a "4 star" apartment at 43 Caroline St but was wary because you do tend to get what you pay for. First impressions driving in to the car park confirmed not to expect much. The thing is though, while most of us can put up with a few problems, there were so many issues with... More

Like a previous reviewer we also found that the unit could do with a good scrub. The window blinds and windowsills were black with dirt and the windows themselves needed a good clean. Other than that the benches, bathroom, etc were OK. The light above the bedroom mirror wasn't working nor was the power point so not only did I... More
