The room was well set up with a kitchenette including all the basic small appliances. There was a comfortable bed. The shower had very weak water pressure and shower recess needed a good clean particularly the tile grouting. I wasn't sure if the smoke alarm was working as it had been left open, probably because when closed it beeped regularly.... More

We stayed one night. W arrived late and if I had arrived earlier in the day I would have cancelled my booking and gone else where. Dirty, stained carpeting. Mound stained shower, shower head would not work had to lean it against the back wall to try to shower under. Stained sheets and towels. I doubt that the sheets had... More

We stayed at Parkville Place for 2 weeks while looking for permanent accommodation. The location was good for us, just down the road from Brunswick and a short tram ride to Melbourne University. The room was a good size, though it was a bit tired with stained carpet and the balcony was grubby. The kitchenette was a bonus and the... More

We stayed in one bedroom apartment on ground floor. The room is as new and comfortable. The location is so convenient that it takes 15 - 20 mins to get to city via tram route 19 and walking distance to Barkley shopping centre. The manager is also very nice who tried best to make your stay so enjoyable. We would... More

The people who run the place couldn't be nicer but the beds are way past their prime - very saggy and the curtains don't close properly so the streetlight shone brightly into the room all night. The ancient airconditioner was quite noisy so if you can afford it, I would spend a little more for a much better nights sleep.

Poorly maintained property - Corridor carpet dirty, no working smoke alarm in apartment, bedside lamp didn't work, kettle shorted electrics and tripped all power, hence no cup of tea! Reception staff were helpful, however the $20 refund we received on checkout when we expressed our disappointment, did not compensate for a still overpriced tariff.

Visited for one night only, we are from a country area and wanted to see our grownup children who live in melbourne and prepare a nice tea for them in the apartment. When we booked in the person on reception told us that their cleaner was sick and they had to clean the rooms themselves that day....I never thought much... More

However, if guests check out later than 10am, then we are not allowed enough time to clean the room. We apologise for not making your room... More

The apartments are in a great location with easy access for the tram to the city, the many restaurants of Sydney Road and Lygon Street, all major supermarkets and Princes Park for a lovely walk. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the kitchen is well equipped if you need to cook basic food. We only used it to make... More
