The overall apartment (from lobby to the room) is very modernly decorated. Reception was very friendly. There is a parking lot, accessed from the back alley.
Location: its right on St. Kilda Road (surrounded by commercial buildings) - not the usual tourist location. Its easy to take tram to downtown (tram station is a few minutes walk) - takes around 10-15 minutes to get to downtown.
Room: Its comfy, but kitchen is not as well equipped as we expected and quite small, but good enough I guess for a tourist - wouldn't be good enough if we were to actually stay long.
Internet: Complimentary if you book directly through the hotel. Its not too stable though, quite slow at time, could take up to 5-10 minutes just to load a page.
Parking: We stayed 3 nights and 2 out of the 3 nights they ran out of spots (1 night we had to park at one of the private reserved spot as instructed by them - they actually had to send someone down and walked us (while we drive) through the gates and to the designated spot; the other night we parked at the restaurant reserved spot). Parking is not cheap, I would expect them to manage the spots better. Seems like they always overbook themselves and make it very inconvenient for their guests to have to get off the car, go to reception and talk to someone each time to figure something out
Room service: available, but its out-sourced, so it does take some time to arrive.
