The rooms are large, our two-bedroom apartment had two good sized bathrooms, a dining table, room to move in the kitchen, a desk, and some lounge suites. Not bad at all.
The location is very convenient to southbank's restaurants, the casino, arts centre, St Kilda road, and just across the bridge to the CBD. Parking was not too difficult, although the spaces were very tight and I would not like to navigate a very large car through the car park.
Internet at $12.50 per day is not as bad as some, but was a bit slow and had a 50MB limit. Not a great deal.
The shower was poor! A poorly designed door that was hard to squeeze through (I'm not a bloater either!), which leaked water all over the bathroom floor, and a shower head which offered a fine spray in a wide arc, which made it hard to really get washed.
Our room had a view of the noisy hi-rise construction site next door, and I expect most rooms will not have any view to write home about. Being an apartment hotel, you're left to your own devices as there is limited front-desk assistance and nothing like a concierge.
All in all a good place for a family to stay in central Melbourne if you can look after yourself and don't need anything fancy.
