I stayed on a 3 bedroom deluxe apartment on the 33rd floor of the adjoining 'Bank Apartments' with 3 friends. The living area of the apartment was outstanding. There was plenty of room to move around and the views of the city and surrounds have to be seen to be believed. The room was well furnished with modern furniture and... More

I stayed for one night on a business trip and wasn't overly impressed. The rooms were nice but the TV didn't work and when we tried to call reception no one answered. The apartments are in a busy part of Melbourne so I understand some noise but it was really loud we all had trouble sleeping and our view well... More

We had a two bedroom apartment which was fabulous. It was really spacious, had two bathrooms and a nice view of the city lights. The 24 hr reception was convenient too. The parking was a little challenging but I would definitely stay here again.

Went there for the exhibition centre, 5 of us we had 2 x 2bedrooms. Ours on the 12th floor front had a nice view over the city. It is an average sized apt with all the conveniences of home. The service was good, with friendly people at reception answering all questions and being helpful. The cleaning was hit and miss... More

Friendly and obliging staff. Fully equipped apartment including washing machine/dryer, full size fridge and oven. Good condition. Reasonably quiet considering close to freeway - double glazing keeps down the noise. Short walk to Exhibition Centre, Casino, DFO and other Southbank attractions. Also short walk to the Melbourne city free tram zone - which we used extensively.

My wife and I travelled to Melbourne to attend the FILEX expo. She had stayed at ARIA before (when they were Plum apartments) and on her previous good review we decided to stay there this time. We had a king 1-bedroom apartment on the 12th floor of the smaller of the two buildings (unfortunately not as good a view as... More

Nice apartment but always difficult to check in. They require a very large bond and require multiple credit card authorisation forms. Will not let you into room until payment is finalised in full. Would not recommend for business

I stayed here for 3 nights and found it a very convenient location as I was working at the exhibition centre. I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 12th floor. Although it is located next to the freeway, the double doors to the balcony kept the noise out. Free WiFi, washing machine, dryer and iron and ironing board... More
