Great park right out the front to assist with easy check in, then secure undercover parking for a minimal fee. Very friendly welcoming staff, (be cheeky and ask for late checkout). Clean, neat apartments that have everything you need, Aldi supermarket is right next door if you have forgotten anything. This is the second time we have stayed at Ink... More

First stay at the Ink and will definitely stay again. We had 2 x 2 bed apartments with 4 couples. Great value and well appointed. Approximately 10 min walk to the Palais and cafes within walking distance also. Have stayed at other establishments in the area that don't compare. We will be back.

This is my fourth time staying at Apartments Ink, and I enjoy my stay everytime. The staff are always friendly and happy to assist. The rooms are well equipped, and most have a private balcony/courtyard. The other bonus is there is an Aldi store located next door. The only downside was that there were no available parking spots left, so... More

We stayed for two nights, quiet comfortable, clean , big enough, good value for money and very good location. Generally speaking very good value for money. And Carlisle St is just around the corner, and has some good , friendly(not as snooty as some Melbourne establishments) wine bars-restaurants plus good general shopping. And the St Kilda waterfront area is only... More

Hi Pedestrian2015, Thank you for taking the time to review Apartments Ink! I am pleased to read that you enjoyed the facilities in the hotel but also found everything convenient.

We were in Australia for 3 weeks and during this time we stayed at Apartments Ink 3 times for a.total of 11 nights. The apartment was spacious with all the amenities we required. The staff could not have been any more helpful. We really enjoyed our time here, very relaxing and stress free. Thank you for all your help.

Booked with Booking.com a month earlier, was pleased to receive a phone call from Apartments Ink confirming reservation. Was clean and well appointed, handy to trams. Toaster was missing from room but delivered promptly when requested. Felt safe while on my own for a few days. Would stay again.

I stayed 2 night Easy check-in, great location, safe & secure, Aldi downstairs and a (not great) chinese. Room had everything I needed but if for a longer stay, the wardrobe would have been too small. There was a bit of visible wear & tear and some minor mould in shower but otherwise very clean and well maintained. Dishwasher powder... More

Hi Flyingperoni, Many thanks for your review on Trip Advisor, we are pleased to hear that check in was easy and you felt safe and secure.

I stayed on NYE for one night with some friends and had an absolute blast! The Deluxe 2 bedroom apartment was clean and quite spacious. We had a balcony that edged both rooms. I apologise as we were at times a little louder than expected and could have disturbed the neighbouring guests. I admire the way management sorted the situation.... More
