We stayed here for eight days in mid-December. The location was perfect for attending the opera (two minute walk) and the art gallery was just as close. It's very conveniently located above the Southbank facility which has a wide choice of food at reasonable prices and is just across the river from the train station/Federation Square.
We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment and were happy with the beds, furniture and cleanliness. The only complaint we had was that the showers were far too hot - it was virtually impossible to make them cold enough not to burn you. Also, after reading a review that said how difficult it was to turn the TV on, we tried it out of curiosity and had no luck either - fortunately we didn't actually want to watch it. The air con was complicated but at least had a manual - with the dishwasher and washing machine a manual would have been helpful but there weren't any. Overall, though, we were happy and would return. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Tip: they charge for wifi, but the Southbank complex just downstairs has wifi which is fast and free.
