We had three generations of family members in 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a quiet study nook. Some of the apartments looked to be privately owned, but we heard no noise and slept well. It is close to St Kilda road to get the tram into the city, but a bit too far to walk... More

Definitely recommend this place. We had a two bedroom executive apartment and it was lovely. Modern interior, well kept and clean. Comfortable beds and a lovely outlook of the Shrine of Remembrance from one room. The lounge area looked out onto an office building, but that's what happens when you stay in the city. We're locals, so although we didn't... More
