We loved this apartment with its stylish furnishings, very well equipped kitchen, good laundry facilities and location. When free tram rather erratic it is only a 20-25minute walk from Federation Square and in th other direction 5 minutes to the restaurant area in New Harbour. There are also small cafes, shops etc in the adjacent road We had lovely weather, but thought the umbrella provided was a nice touch! And we also found out that the fire alarm arrangements and prompt arrival of a fleet of fire engines are very efficient when a vehicle in the car park set off a sprinkler and had us all evacuating the building. So definitely safe on that score
Belinda and Paul were wonderful, booking seats to the evening open air cinema in the Botanic Gardens on the afternoon of our arrival (magical experience) and storing our luggage and bringing it to the taxi when we went to the airport.
One thing to be aware of: we only booked one organised trip during our stay but the tourist office said the apartments are not a recognised pick up for tour companies as they are a mix with residential properties. However the Travelodge by South Cross Station is only 5 minutes walk and we were collected and dropped off from there.
