After booking a one bedroom apartment for 4 nights I went on tripadvisor to check the reviews. Wrong order I know - should have checked here first!!! I was very worried to say the least after reading all the negative reviews and very nearly cancelled the booking. I had no need to worry!! The location was perfect. Central to absolutely everything. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. We had plenty of room to spread out. There was no problem with noise. If we had anything to complain about it was that the shower was over the bath tub and a bit pokey,but was still very manageable. For $90 a night when a major concert was scheduled to perform in Melbourne ( Fleetwood Mac ) I do wonder what people expect for their money!!! Would stay here again any time. We stayed in room 1014.
