“Excellent for family or group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a gem tucked away in a quiet street right on a tram line which gets you in to the city in ten minutes. Lovely comfy beds, functional kitchen, comfortable lounge furniture. Bathroom was a little tight with washing machine and dryer and tiny sink. Good large shower though. There is not 24 hour reception so if you are arriving early or late make sure you make arrangements prior to getting there as the front door is locked.

My family of four stayed at AOC while visiting Melbourne and found the place conveniently located, clean and welcoming.
AOC is nearby two hospitals in Melbourne including the Royal Children's Hospital but this should be a deterrent to guests as you cannot even hear the ambulance siren from the apartment. AOC is also nearby University of Melbourne campus.
AOC is nearby tram stop 57 that takes you into Melbourne CBD. This is convenient because then you can connect on the free circle tram that should cover most parts of Melbourne CBD.
AOC is slightly on the smallish side but with the original building like that, any bigger space would not have made sense. Having said that I must say the owners did a marvellous using every nook and corner of the apartment and it is well equipped with sufficient cupboard space.
For those driving, be warned that there are only ten car park spaces within the compound but this compound is not guarded hence open to the public. If you are coming home at night, there may not be enough space to park.

Room Tip: We preferred the higher floors, which means you need to carry your luggages up a few flights of stai...

Stayed for 3 nights in July 2012 as a couple. Excellent and modern apartments, very very clean. Excellent shower area with very strong hot water! Close to Tram that goes direct to City. Will book here again next trip to Melbourne.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for three nights. The staff are nice, the rooms are reasonable in terms of fit-out, and the price was relatively inexpensive. However, my wife and I slept very poorly on all three nights due to the following acoustic issues:
- We were awoken several times due to people talking loudly and/or vehicle noise within the carpark area which is on the western side of the building (around 1 am and 2 am night).
- The wall seperating our apartment from the adjacent one must have a sound reduction performance (Rw rating) of less than 40, because we could hear word-for-word the conversation occuring in the adjacent apartment in the middle of the night. These late night conversations kept me us up for hours on end.
- A loud 'thumping' noise was audible when 'heavy' people walked down the corridor (must be a lightweight floor rather than a concrete slab.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the ground floor on the western side of the building (eg Room 6).

A family of 4 we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was nicely furnished a modern.look - loved it. The beds were so comfortable and with good quality linen it made for great sleeps.
We flew into Melbourne quite early in the morning after a quite an early start we were all a bit shattered. We arrived at the Chapman at 10:30 in the morning and were able to check in straight away, this was awesome. The kids were able to chill out for a while before we hit sites of the city.
They also have free internet use which was a nice bonus. We were so happy with the accommodation that we ended booking another night there on our last night in Melbourne.
the staff were also very friendly. We are already planning our next stay Easter 2013.

As a parent required to make several trips to Melbourne for the Royal Children's Hospital for my little boy, I could not fault these apartments. Brand new, clean and within a few minutes walk from the hospital's front door, I couldn't fault the place.
I've stayed in quite a few apartments over the past year, and wouldn't even bother writing a review. The gentleman at front desk was ever so friendly, couldn't do enough for us, the beds were ultra comfy and it had EVERYTHING we needed for our stay. Kitchen was equipped with the works, there was a DVD player which my little boy was wrapped about, a washing machine AND dryer, and even a walk in robe!
Most important of all, I didn't have to drive all over the city for "key collection", they were there waiting for me at the actual apartments AND there was ample off-street parking, it's nestled in a lovely quiet street too. We had one of the front rooms and had no problems sleeping, it was really quiet.

We stayed as a family of 4 in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. The location is great, with 3 different tram stops nearby and a great park 5 minutes away. The apartments are compact but really well designed with everything you need. Comfy beds, quiet and a really good price for the location.
