Reasonably priced apartment in a central location. Friendly staff, who couldn't be more helpful, organised an early check in and were very accomodating. Spacious room, was quiet and tidy. Will stay again.

The apartments are in what was an old apartment block form the 60's or 70's. They have been done up but retain some of the original features such as windows and door bell. Our daughter particularly loved this place as she loves vintage things. Everything was clean and tidy. Main room was good size. One room was extremely light and... More

I lived in Melbourne many years ago and needed to find somewhere that allowed me to easily move around by car and public transport so I could visit old friends and places. IO wanted something close to public transport, close to the CBD but allowed me to park my car so I could use it when needed. The Crest on... More

When we arrived I wasn't truthfully expecting very much, as the apartments off to the side of the building which we were staying in looked average. We booked for five to stay in a three bedroom apartment but sadly had to be moved twice (upon our own request) because we had been booked in a small apartment and the second... More

Cleanliness level was very very low. Beds/Linen were all dirty, folded out the couch and it still had linen from previous use in there. Toaster didn't work. All the corners and behind doors in all the rooms were filthy, with dust, dirt, & hair. Had one grotty sponge covered in food and hair to use for washing up. The noise... More

Had a good night here. Reasonably close to nightlife and the beach. Shower is a tad temperamental but aside from that all was well. Be warned you do need to leave a $300 bond on arrival which I was unaware of beforehand.

The reception was very brisk and business like, not over friendly but efficient. The room was more than adequate with a great view over the city, comfy bed and space to move around. The parking is squishy so take your smaller car if you have one. Our sedan fitted in with barely enough room but as we were able to... More

In Melbourne working close by.. The Crest was chosen for easy access to Nepean Hwy and Dandenong rd. Great location. Free parking for my Commercial Van was an added bonus.
