Enjoyed our time there. Staff were accommodating. Only concern is that when the oven was used, the room filled with smoke. Even more concerning is that the smoke alarm on the ceiling stayed silent. Nice and central to Prahran and the team into the city.

Three of us stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment for one night. Several apartments enter a locked shared staircase area before going into our own apartment. Ours consisted of lounge/dining on the first floor and bedrooms/bathrooms up the stairs on the next level. We were given the option of stairs or an apartment without, so stairless apartments are...

Stayed for three nights in a three bedroom apartment with family including two young children. Staff were welcoming and helpful, apartment clean and quiet in a great location. Only negative was limited servicing of apartment despite being told it would be serviced daily and the lack of anything to clean it with ourselves.

I stayed here for a weekend when I was last in Melbourne. First thing that struck me was the long list of rules and penalties that were brought to my attention on check in ($100 call out fee if you make noise after 9pm, $60 rubbish collection fee if your bottles don't fit in the kitchen bin…). The check out... More

The area is a delight with Prahran market round the corner and Chapel street and lots of restaurants and bars within a stones throw. There is a gated... More

Booked a three bedroom apartment over christmas for the boxing day test. While the rooms seem to be fitted with low quality fittings and the water pipes are a little loud, the facilities in the room were a nice little home away from home. Its proximity to public transport was amazing and it had nice parks and supermarkets close by.... More
