My cousins and I stayed here for 2 nights. Found out about this apartment via the Internet and they even have their own website that I booked through. Considering it was very last minute, I have to give them the thumbs up for excellent service at such short notice.
FYI, I booked the 2 bedroom apartment at City Point Apartment on Bourke Street. Apparently there are 2 other location at City Road & Soutbank.
What I loved:
- tram stop was right outside the apartment. Unfortunately, one has to walk a fair bit to get on the free tourist bus or tourist tram.
- very near to the Southern Cross Station (easy to get taxis)
- walking distance to Etihad Stadium, Waterfront & Harbourtown and close to the DFO store
- great view of the skyline of Melbourne and Yarra River
- the comforts of home: washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, all kitchenware appliances, linens etc
What I disliked:
1. picking up the keys
- you'd have to pick up the keys at another location i.e. City Road.. it's a tad inconvenient
2. extra heater
- I went there at the end of winter and there is only one A/C / heater in the living room. wished they had additional A/C / heater in the bedrooms
3. TV channels
- very limited channels.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay and withing walking distance to the main shopping area further up Bourke Street.
