“Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment on the 38th floor with my family. Excellent location;walking distance to the CBD. Check in and check out with ease. We drove from Adelaide therefore made use of the car park as well. Since we were staying for 5 nights it was great to have a home away from home and be able to pour some cereal in the morning and have breakfast or make yourself some tea! The apartments are well furnished and stocked including utensils, hairdryer etc and clean towels were provided. Ideal for a short stay close to the city.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in the epic apartments Southbank on the 32nd floor...was excellent, amazing views and apartment was very spacious, clean and had everything we needed. These apartments are brand new and are in an excellent location walking distance to cbd along the Yarra...would definitely stay here again would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor as you get sensational views

Stayed here as a family of four in south bank one. Two bedroom executive apartment with two bathrooms. Had everything we needed and was great location close to south bank, trams, crown complex. Opening windows were a bonus. Only downside was getting stuck in the lift for 15 minutes on arrival!! Pool could do with a clean around the area and some better furniture.

Our family group of four adults, a 3.10 & a 0.11 year old spent 4 nights in a three bedroom apartment on the 26th floor of Tower One. The apartment had terrific views west over a Docklands & the city, and south over Port Phillip Bay.

The apartment was quite spacious and reasonably well furnished, if a bit sparse. This block is about 10 years old now and could do with a spruce up. Walls have worn and marked paint, and the metal Venetian blinds on all windows were bent in a lot of places, with some not able to be opened. The condition of the blinds made the apartment look shabby overall. Apart from this, it was clean, towels were clean & soft, kitchen sufficiently stocked with utensils, plates etc. The carpets looked ok, but are showing signs of wear & tear. The bathrooms were clean enough, a bit of discolouration in the tile grout notwithstanding. The shower heads are a little loose as well, so not easy to keep the shower from spraying the floor. Washing machine & dryer both worked adequately.

These apartments are very well located, only a short walk from Southbank Promenade, Crown Casino complex, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, St Kilda Road, NGV, Botanic Gardens & War Memorial. Nearby services include buses, trams, supermarkets & restaurants.

Check in (office next door) is quick and efficient, staff are attentive. Each building is secured and has its own Concierge.

Overall we were happy with our stay and the apartment overall. The location is its best asset.

I can assure you that this feedback has been provided to our maintenance department to be actioned.

I am pleased to read that you enjoyed the views from your apartment and the location of the property which as you mentioned is close to all the great things Melbourne has to offer!

I choose Melbourne short stay apartments for the location and I was extremely impressed from booking the apartment to the departure all of the staff did their best to accommodate myself and my partner from allowing us to check in early as I flew in from PERTH helping with parking issues that arose,the 9 days spent there was value for money (they upgraded us which was un-necessary but appreciated) to a 2 bedroom apartment on the 22nd floor with great views to the M.C.G as it was fully self contained it truly felt like a home away from home,we will be back.

We had a great time staying at the recently opened Epic Apartments. The two-bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was clean, modern and roomy, and had great views over the city, Port Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay. The location was great: very close to Southbank Promenade and a short walk to Flinders Street Station. All staff members that we spoke with were friendly and helpful. Wi-fi was extra but was easy to connect.

This will be the third time that I have made the most of the Melbourne's Short Stay apartments.
We stayed at the MP Deluxe on City Rd.
As always we are greeted by friendly staff, ( we love Alannah!) and given all instructions for the week long stay.

The 2 bed 2 bath apartment was clean, with a great view to Port Melbourne and St Kilda Beach.

Although not nearly as spacious as the apartments on Whiteman Street, we were fine with our older children.
Maybe with younger children, you may need a little bit more moving around space.
We used the lovely pool and Gym and are always grateful for the secure undercover parking.
After the first night you become used to the traffic drone so it wasn't really an issue for us.

It is just a short walk away from Southbank, Crown and many restaurants and Bars.

The Tram 55 is just outside the door and that takes you straight into the CBD if you wish.

Will definitely use Short Stay for our next business/family trip to Melbourne.

Room Tip: Ask for higher rooms facing the City. Although probably more expensive, it will eliminate the freewa...
