My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights over Australia Day weekend and were delighted that there was still availability, as it is very close to the city and the Australian Open (which was having its finals, so everywhere was quite full). The location is really good, a very short walk to Jolimont Station, the MCG, the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens, and also not far from Rod Laver Arena and Melbourne Park tennis centre and soccer stadium. A great plus is that as its set back from Wellington Pde, its probably one of the quietest locations this close to the city.
The apartment was about $180/night, which we thought was pretty good considering that we only booked a few days prior, and for such a great location.
The service was friendly and helpful. The apartment itself was nothing special, but was spacious, had good facilities. The bed was the firm side of comfortable, which is a plus or a minus depending on your taste, a bit on the firm side for my taste, but okay.
There was evaporative A/C to control the temperature which was needed pretty much non-stop, as the apartment was very warm and stuffy for some reason (the warmth was strange as it was a first floor apartment with no direct sun), but this meant we had to leave our bedroom door open to the lounge area. Strangely the lounge opened onto what I suppose you could call a courtyard, but was a strange blank area in the middle of the building about the size of an elevator shaft, with a grate in the middle for drainage - not a place I'd wanna hang out in, but some small beautification and maybe a seat or two would go a long way to improving this area - though not having an opening to the street probably further reduced any minimal outside noise.
I imagine there'd be more noise if there was footy on at the MCG, but it seemed well protected, as the building faces away from the MCG.
All in all a good (not great) stay, but would recommend to others.
