“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Our apartment, whilst not as glamorous as the online photos, was spacious and well equipped. The location is excellent for transport, cafes and restaurants. Harbour Town is close by as are trams to the city. Parking is available at reasonable cost. It was quiet and although the weather was extremely cold, heating in the unit was very good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights. The layout of the apartment was strange. The apartment was spacious however not a quality apartment. The photo's on their website are very deceiving. The furniture was run down as were the appliances in the kitchen and they didn't appear to be very clean. The fridge is raised off the ground and almost fell out on to our 2 year old daughter as she tried to open the door to get a drink. Overall not very impressed and would not recommend to anyone.

I've stayed at Docklands Private Collection of Apartments 4 times now and seem to always return. Check in is always a breeze and the managers are always friendly and helpful.

The 3 apartments we have stayed in have been absolutely beautiful with huge rooms and vies to die for. I could sit in the lounge all night and see the city lights and the harbour.

It's perfectly situated for football at Etihad Stadium (which you can see from your room). Only a 2 minute walk from Docklands.

Food is easy to find with numerous restaurants directly under the apartments.

I can highly recommend a stay with Private Collection, you will not be disappointed :-)

Very peculiar apartments located inside an office building, I really enjoyed my stay. The place was furnished with all you can need (fully equipped kitchen for ex). Quiet at night. The lay-out of the place looked a bit weird to me (I was in appt 701-A) with bedroom right at the entrance, but it was ok and I slept very well.

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment. View is awesome. Facilities are superb. Location is great, away from noise, yet a few minutes walk to 3 stations of the free city tram. A supermarket below our unit. Price is reasonable. Would recommend to friends.

We stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bathroom apartment (Room 202) for two nights. We could not fault it. The view was amazing, great location close to lots of very good restaurants. So quiet. The apartment had everything you could possibly need and was located just a few mins walk to the tramline. We will definitely be back next time we visit Melbourne. Cannot recommend this apartment enough and the staff were really helpful and informative.

Room Tip: We had room 202 overlooking the harbor. Great views and very quiet.

We stayed in the sub penthouse featured in the picture above. It is perfect for a couple who like to entertain. Attentive staff, clean apartment and the views mesmerised us. We will be back and hopefully for longer.

Room Tip: It is worth paying a little extra for the harbour and city skyline view
