“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I stayed at Melbourne Short Stay Apartments on Whiteman with some work colleagues when we visited Melbourne for a conference. We had a 3-bedroom 2-bathroom apartment on the 18th floor, with spectacular views over Melbourne. The apartment was beautifully maintained, comfortable, roomy and suited our needs perfectly. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the convention centre and Crown Casino, and close to lots of great restaurants along the river. Conveniently, there was also a supermarket downstairs, so we could get a few nibblies. My only criticism was that we could not get the air conditioner to work, but this was probably user-error rather than a fault with the A/C system. There was also a little bit of traffic noise, but you would expect this in the middle of a busy city. I would highly recommend this property and would stay here again.

The short stay apartments were sensational for a number of reasons.
The location was so easy, short walk to shops and close to South Bank and its never ending choice of restaurants. The tram stops right outside the door, so really easy to get to St Kilda, the city, china town. We travelled with 4 families, with 13 kids in total and the apartments were great for us. The kids loved the pool, the rooms were really spacious and very clean and tidy, with everything you need. A supermarket downstairs made self-catering really easy and we all really enjoyed ourselves, brilliant views over Melbourne and such a comfy bed and pillow (and I am pretty fussy with pillows). All around woud def recommend and will stay again.

Room Tip: 2 adults and 3 kids, we were fine in the 2 bed apartment, but youngest is only 3yo, so we didn't...

If your looking for somewhere close to Casino or the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention centre this is it. The rooms are comfortable not a little worn. We got a deal on Wotif for a studio room which could really be classed as a one bedroom. The only critism would be the smell of food cooking from the actual residents of the floors is quite strong!
Apart from that....all good.

This was a 4 day stay, for 4 , a couple & 2 single ladies. We had booked the 2 Bed/Bath but was given an upgrade to the 3 Bed/2 Bath. The apartment was great, spacious, clean, modern comfortable with great views. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom spacious. It is in a great spot, close to the casino, tram stop across the road, short walk to Flinders Street and Southwalk and a grocery shop/bottleshop next door The staff were very friendly & helpful, no trouble holding our luggage until late in the afternoon, even phoned a cab for us. I would definitely stay again.

My husband and I had a short break in Melbourne, staying at the Vue Grande Apartments which are part of the short stay group. The apartment was clean, spacious and tidy, the bed was really comfortable, which I find is often what makes or breaks a holdiay. It is really central and in easy walking distance to the city and art precinct. My only gripe is that the apartment is not double glazed and as a result a little bit of road noise is heard, but nothing to keep us awake. All up, a really good experience.

This was a 4 day girl's trip to Melbourne to see a football game. The apartments are very spacious, we had a 2 bed 2 bath apartment, with a roomy kitchen, meals and TV room. It was 3 minutes walk to the casino, and a tram outside the door to go either into town or to St Kilda. The rooms were all very clean and the apartment block was quiet. I would definitely stay there again and reasonably priced as well. there is a gym and an enclosed pool, we used the pool even though it was very cold outside the pool area was lovely and warm.

Room Tip: Next time we will ask for a room that faces the city, other than that we found it a good place to st...
