Stayed two nights and at first thought it would be a disaster. The studio room was so small. No table or chairs. The walls were paper thin so we heard everything from nextdoor. They decided to have a noisy party and we couldn't sleep. We contacted reception and the noise finished at about 10.30, however the thumping music started again... More

I had a great one bedroom apartment on the 25th floor. I could not fault the layout, the servicing, the cleanliness, the comfort - great view from the balcony. However, there was an exhaust fan that automatically came on when the bathroom light came on. It was super noisy - so easy to fix by turning off the light. Unfortunately... More

Booked 2 bed 2 bath apartment - quite good but could have done with more seating in lounge. Very basic kitchen utensils, could have done with decent size glasses. Conveniently situated, walking distance to MCG & CBD. Staff were friendly & helpful.

We stayed in this hotel for a week, and had a great time. The one bedroom apartment was very comfortable, and the service from the staff was helpful and professional. I would stay here again without any hesitation. The location was great - just a short walk to everything we wanted to see and do.

The young gentleman behind the counter saved this place from getting one of the worst reviews in history . The manager was out of her depth . Rooms and hallways smelt like Asian cooking . Beware of hidden costs . Would I stay there again . Not with that manager
