I had a 1 bed apartment for 3 nights. The 19th floor apartment was in almost new condition with views back over Melbourne city. A short walk to Etihad Stadium. about 10 minute stroll to Souther Cross Station and a free tram to the city is located about 50m from the entrance. Downsides... the area is a bit of a... More

We stayed here in a 2 bed apartment. We had booked it from Wotif.com as a mystery hotel. We loved the place. It was right at the dock with an amazing view. All facilities were provided at the apartment. Staff at the reception (Mr.Jai) was very helpful and courteous. We would surely stay back here if we visit Melbourne again.

Mum and I stayed at Apartments at Docklands for our semi annual Melbourne shopping and touring trip. The location was good, close enough to trams etc and we could walk to the City and the DFO at South Wharf. Didn't have the issues that other travellers mentioned about having to walk far with bags, it was only about two mins.... More

Apartments at Docklands offers a very convenient option for those looking for service apartments in Melbourne. The apartment we stayed at was very specious, with great amenities and offer excellent views of the riverside. Docklands is a newly developed area and is not exactly in the heart of the city but is very well connected by Tram. Tram station is... More

Great little kitchen with full size fridge perfect for a weeks stay. Great cafes & restaurants very close by. Iga supermarket down stairs & a mini mart close by. Very short... More

I lived here for about a year in Boyd 1909 in one of their furnished apartments. At first glace the apartment looks nice but after being there a while you realize that the quality is really bad, thought the location was spectacular being right outside of downtown (CBD). You get the closeness of the CBD but not the noise or... More

Given a much appreciated early check in without any problems. Apartment was spacious enough for our family of 5 with inexpensive car parking in the building. Views of Docklands area fantastic. Many restaurants in the immediate area, and only a short (free) tram ride to Melbourne's busy CBD. Had a bathroom maintenance issue but this was fixed quickly and without... More

I have stayed here on numerous occasions and it is always my first pick for apartment accommodation in melbourne. I have never not had a fabulous apartment with stunning views. The reception staff are always accommodating if you need extra plates or glasses. Easy walking distance to Etihad and the city, don't look anywhere else!

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...
