These apartments are in an excellent location to access most points of the Melbourne CBD. Just a short stroll to the tram stop (which is now in the newly designated 'free zone' for riding trams in the CBDs) just 15 mins to the South bank precinct, a range of other local attractions and Flinders St. Station and closer to Southern...

we stayed in a two bedroom apartment for the Australian Open 2015. Best value, views, location and rooms for parents and two teenagers! Two Balconies, two bathrooms, Foxtel and half the price of the CBDS with more convenience. The trams across the road came every 10 min and only a few stop to cbd or tennis. With restaurants below and... More

First off the office is not necessarily where your apartment is. Our car had dropped us off and gone, only for us to discover that the apartment was ten minutes away and we had all our bags. The apartment was a good size but the furniture and its orientation did not make full use of the living space. The sofa... More

Arrived a couple of hours ago for a 2 night stay in a 2 bedroom apartment. Requested a 3rd night without any issues. Reception were very friendly and professional. Room 1802 in the Palladio ended up being a beautiful 3 bedroom apartment, stunning balcony views overlooking the bay. All bedrooms very spacious and clean. Already want to come back!!! (Could...

A fabulous spot and it could be an awesome place, but it's let down but little things. Not enough blankets, towels, broken blind, cupboard and the paint needs a touch up inside. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room in this 3 bedroom apartment for 5 of us.

We had an uninterested and rude fellow to check us in at reception. He was busy on the computer and told us to wait. (I bet he was playing solitaire.) Other than that, the apartment was lovely but lacked items such as bottle opener, dish cloths and drinking glasses. The balcony door handle also fell off but the staff were... More

Stayed here in a 3 bedroom apartment - 3 adults 2 kids. Really comfortable and an enjoyable stay was had by all. Docklands really has come a long way over the last few years & now there are great amenities right at your door. Tram stop is very close so it is easy to get around the city. The parking... More
