We booked these apartments as a group requesting 3, 2 bedroom apartments about 3 months in advance. When we arrived they didnt have our rooms near each other or even on the same floor. This made it very difficult for us as security in the building meant that we were unable to move freely between floors either. Also the apartments are advertised as serviced yet this means once a week. So in the 6 days we were there we did not get new towels, washing liquid or washing powder or even new toilet rolls. We have two small children so by the time we left, the floor looked like a disaster. I would have vacuumed myself except that you had to hire a vacuum if you wanted to do that. We also had to hire a cot to have in the apartment which i though was unreasonable considering the cost of the apartment and that it does cater for 4 people and there were only 4 of us. Perhaps this style of apartment would better suit somebody that was staying for a month or so and didnt mind buying there own washing liquid, washing powder etc but for 6 days it didnt seem worth it to do buy that stuff so it made it uncomforatble to stay in the apartment as it was pretty dirty by the end of the week.
The location is ok but not great. Very close to SouthBank, the Exhibition centre and not far from the new DFO but far from the city. With young kids its even far to walk to a tram. We stayed at Southbank One. The Apartment itself was quite nice but i wouldnt say it was luxury.
The staff are also very detached fro the apartmnets. I think it would be fair to say that many people who work in the office have not actually been in these apartments. They struggle to answer questions and dont really seem to know what is going on.
We visit Melbourne a lot and wont be staying here again.
