3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

These are not the most modern apartments but the they are spacious, clean, the beds comfortable and the shower excellent. Parking at the door was very welcome with small children and it was very quiet at night. 5 min walk to Rathdowne Village and great park for kids.

After reading some of the negative reviews on Trip Advisor I was a bit worried that I may have made a mistake when I booked 5 nights for a family get-a-way, but my concerns were groundless. If you want a 5 star apartment for a 3 star price then Apartments on Lygon is not for you. If you want a 3 star apartment close to the city at a reasonable price then this might just suit you.
We had a 2 bedroom apartment at the front - some noise from Lygon Street but not bad enough to disturb our sleep.
The apartment is showing its age and you could pick faults with the maintenance but on the whole it was clean and odour free.
Furnishings and fitout are plain but functional - beds are comfortable enough for a good night's sleep.
Location is great - 15 minutes to city on the tram (tram stops at the door) , 5 - 10 minutes walk to good restaurants. Yes there is a cemetry across the road but we weren't overly troubled by ghouls or ghosts.
Would I stay here again? Yes!

Our family of five just spent four nights in a two bedroom apartment. It was very conveniently located and a good size but that's about all that recommends it. It looked nothing like the pictures on the website. The carpet was stained, the apartment smelled very musty, the fire alarm was on a shelf in the cupboard, the gas stove wobbled dangerously (a potential disaster with two toddlers) and there were no doona covers - just a top sheet, a doona then another top sheet. The kids ended up in a tangle of sheets and a bare doona each night - which was also stained. Yuk. The bathroom was clean and looked recently renovated. The heater worked well. Overall I think it was dreadfully overpriced. I've stayed in cleaner and more salubrious hostels.

Freezing cold rooms, heating did not work properly - had to drag mattress out of the bedroom to be near the heater! One tiny couch in room for 2 people. Filthy carpets, dirty blankets which I would not use. Linen needs replacing, tea coffee not replenished each day. Description of location misleading - no close amenities if you need to purchase anything late at night. Would have been better paying 30 extra dollars and staying in the city. Never ever again! Would rather sleep in the cemetary across the road

My husband, in-laws and baby daughter stayed here overnight in a 2 bd apartment but would have comfortably stayed a week or more. It was roomy, clean and comfortable. I stayed in the front room against the street and did find the traffic quite noisy but it did not bother my husband or my baby. We had everything we needed, although I would have liked a heater in the bedroom as it was quite cold but there is ac in the living room.
Overall, I would stay again as it was comfortable and easy to catch a tram from directly in front of the apartment to the city, and also a very short walk to cafes for a meal. It was also very family friendly.

I stayed at Apartments on Lygon for a month this year whilst doing a work related residency. I had a fantastic time and the apartment was ideal and I made it my home for the duration of my stay. In short....... a great location, very easy access to the city on the tram or walking. Helpful management and staff who were happy to help with extra requests such as printing etc and the rooms were serviced daily and kept clean and supplied with fresh towels .

As a female alone I found the apartments ideal, I felt safe in the area in the day and late at night. The Kent Hotel near by did great food and also the 169 cafe does the best brunch! Clothes shops and boutiques also really great in this area. I would wholeheartedly reconmend it!

Was very surprised after recommending these apartments to a friend that she told me she had bad reviews on TA. I don't know where these people stayed but it was certainly not at the apartments I was in. On the city edge with easy access by car or public transport, these are exceedingly good value for money. As a party of four we had well presented rooms with lovely linens, a fully equipped kitchen, full-size bath & shower, dining table & flat screen TV. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, there was plenty of info about city attractions & out of town tours and always someone on hand to help with bookings or directions. I would thoroughly recommend Apartments on Lygon and do!

Room Tip: Lygon St side is sunny & peaceful views of Melbourne Cemetery (well worth a look around!).
