“Great apartment for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A great size apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms suitable for a small family, and well located. A good view of the fireworks on New Years Eve. Air conditioning was awesome especially on those 40 C plus days and the balcony view was a plus. TV could have been a bit bigger, but was adequate. A self locking door would have been a plus, so you had to remember to lock your door each time you exit and enter, so a bit of an inconvenience. The foodworks mini supermarket was a big plus as well as being close to Southbank and other attractions. The kitchen was well equipped and the stove, dishwasher and oven were all quality appliances. The pool was a bit average but functional. A very convenient location and great size

Room Tip: Make sure you can see the Yarra river for a good view of the fireworks on NYE

We stayed here during our trip to Melbourne over Christmas. Staff in the office were friendly (although porter staff in reception could have done more to help rather than sending us back over to the office), and the quality of the apartment itself was very good.

If we had to nit-pick, the dishwasher needed a little attention and there wasn't enough water pressure for a nice powerful shower, but that is really scratching around for something to criticise!

Gym and swimming pool looked underused, which meant we had the pool to ourselves when we used it.

The apartment was nice and roomy. The beds and pillows were hard and uncomfortable. Only one couch for a max of 5 people occupancy, could do with another. Staff were helpful at the office. Shop downstairs perfect!! Great location and overall above average stay.

Great apartments with perfect view and location. Comfy & clean beds and towels. Yet we struggled with the bad smell of the bathroom, we bought a candle to cover it up and it solved the problem.
Anyhow I highly recommend it.

We had booked into a two bedroom and two bathroom apartment as we were 4 adults and 1 kid. The location was fantastic and the views from our bedroom window was amazing at night. The kitchen was well provided with all amenities. Only downside is that there was no room cleaning inspite of our 5 night stay. All in all, highly recommended.

2 bedroom apartment, able to rent a travel cot, great location central to where we wanted to be -tram stops, train station, restaurants and city centre all within 10 mins walk. Apartment whilst not furnished with every utensil etc had everything we needed for a long weekend and we were comfortably able to cook meals for children, washing up liquid etc was provided and additionally it was spotlessly clean. Swimming pool was fabulous and gym looked fine. Having a supermarket downstairs open until 11pm was also great. For 2 adults and 2 young children this worked perfectly for us and we will without hesitation rent here again and I would recommend it.

I booked this apartment online and straight away knew this place would be very nice but when we actually got there at 11.30pm it was more then we expected. My daughters aged 17 and 19 thought it was wonderful. Very close to everything if you don't mind walking. The only problem was the main door not being self locking. The store down stairs was very convenient also.

Room Tip: We were on the 26th floor overlooking the Eureka Skydeck.
