“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Super like this apartment as its in the heart of the cbd. The check in was very smooth as I told them when to expect me. The receptionist was a very nice lady. She was ever so friendly, helpful & made me welcome.
The room was clean with everything working in order on the fifth floor. It was very comfortable & cozy & exactly as what was in the picture.
There's food everywhere & shops the minute you step out of the apartment. Will stay there again.

Room Tip: Request for higher floor as the city does not sleep. there's always people on the street. So it...

Great location in Melbourne. Walking distance to the Victoria market and central Melbourne. 1minute walk to Her Majesty's Theatre; great food in China Town. Slight issue in the room was fixed immediately by management. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed for 5 nights. What a great apartment, we had king sized bed, great kitchenette, fantastic bathroom, so roomy.

Great value for money with servicing of apartment every day, staff very courteous. Bed very comfortable. Had 1 bedroom apartment. Was great to be able to watch TV from the bed.

Loved having clothes airier to put my washing on.

Staff at reception were so helpful and great to deal with. They all deserve a pat on the back.

I don't know why people complain about no wifi, as you know this before you book!!

Would certainly recommend.

Room Tip: Our room faced Cohen Street, was very quiet.

My husband and I stayed on a Friday night because we got a great deal with Coxy's Mates Rates. I must admit, I have overlooked this hotel in the past, thinking that being in China Town, it would be too noisy, but it's actually in a perfect location- close to everything but set back from the street and really quiet. We had a one bedroom apartment on the third floor that overlooked the square where the Chinese Monument is and it was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom was huge with a big corner spa bath and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever had in a hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a continental breakfast included in our deal and it was set up in an area near reception. Even if you had to pay, at $9.50 pp it was good value with a variety of breads, cereal, some fruit, yoghurt and tea, coffee and juice. You can eat it downstairs or take it back to your room. We got onsite parking for $19 for the night which is really reasonable in Melbourne but space is limited so you need to book it. They also have a deal with a nearby carpark if their park is full. I highly recommend this place and will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony if you like to sit outside because ours was one of only two on that si...

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights this month and would highly recommend this hotel.We got a good rate at NZD 141.00 per night.The studio apt was spacious enough and clean and the decor modern.The servicing daily was well done.The room (604)had no view and was on the 6th floor.relatively quiet for a central city location.The only noise was rubbish collection.
The bathrooms are extremely roomy and shower pressure fantastic.Our only complaint was the bed seemed far too soft and i didnt compain about this.Plenty of cafes nearby for breakfast and dining.
Fantastic location .Lovely well appointed room.Staff friendly.

Room Tip: Higher undoubtedly would be a bit quieter.No room would have a great view as very inner city .Studio...

Nice room, clean and safe. Central to everything and offers privacy. Gym is not as big as the photos on website but it is a nice place to stay.

Comfy bed and nice decor, would suggest for other couples.

We have just returned from a week in Melbourne. We originally had only booked for 5 nights, and at the last minute extended our stay for 2 nights. We were part of a group of 17 people, who were located on various floors. Our room was quite good, plenty of room, and a small kitchenette for those who want to cook, but why cook when Melbourne has soo many great places to eat, including heaps on the doorstep in China Town. My main complaint would be the noise at night from bins being emptied (not in the hotel, in China Town), but I am a light sleeper, and my husband heard nothing. The only day the room wasn't cleaned and towels refreshed was Melbourne Cup day, but we had a note the day before to let us know this would happen. All in all, a fantastic week with our friends, which the accommodation helped.
