This is not 5* but neither is the price on weekends. It is bland with grey walls, the apartment has everything it needs but not to a high standard, small TV, picture missing from wall, no weekend service. It is conveniently located close to tram and is waking distance from Flinders St and Southbank. Shop across road in gas station... More

Stayed 12th - 16th Jan. location very good. Customer service to us was very good. The one bedroom apartment was clean except for the oven trays which cleaners missed. We had a city view side apartment and enjoyed sitting on balcony as the city noise didnt worry us. I was able to park the car in the secure carpark but... More

The apartments were conveniently located, though the customer service was appalling. The traffic lights in the one way car park weren't working and were unsafe. The lift closed and had my 7 week old baby and mother stuck without a key to be able to get back to our floor or room. Our bed was two singles pushed together and... More

my family and I spent 2 nights in this apartment and found it very comfortable indeed. the advantage of 2 bedrooms ,each with their own bathroom, was a real bonus.location was good with tram and bus transport outside establishment. supermarkets and takeaways were very handy.the apartments were clean with practically everything that was needed.

I shared a 2 bedroom apartment with work colleagues. The apartment had a full kitchen, clothes washer and drier. The apartment was very clean. The Melbourne Convention Centre and Crown Casino is a short 5 minute walk. Convenient stores and Mc Donald's are nearby for supplies. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The only criticism is NO READING... More

Very disappointed with cleanliness of the room, had to get housekeeping to come and vacuum again. Also advice before arrival re: parking was incorrect. The staff do seem very helpful and the location and view is pretty good.

I booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 2 nights (Sat & Sun) as their studio apartments only have double beds but their 1 bedder apartments have queen beds. Upon check in, they advised they only had a double bed left, even though my confirmation says '1X Queen bed'. The hotel staff advised they will swap us into a room with... More
