“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Great location, rooms spacious and clean, gym and pool handy. Service and desk staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Violetta went out of her way to make our stay hassle free as we had three families staying and other family members visiting. Location to KeyIf restaurant/cafe was handy and they provided excellent room service and great coffee.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Stayed here for about 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom apartment. Overall, we were happy with the quality of accomodation and service. Not sure what the cost was given it was a work booking, but anything more than $220 per night would be stretching the value.

Two main areas of concern though.

The carpark is shared with a neighbouring private apartment complex and usually only the first few levels are available. This is the tightest carpark I have ever used. If you meet a car coming the other way, better hope a nearby parking space is vacant so one of you can clear a path. Also, a number of the spaces have services (eg. plumbing) hanging low over the last metre or so. An average car can park front on beneath these pipes, and still fit in the space. However, any van or high riding 4wd is left sticking out significantly. Doesn't help when some selfish drivers don't even try and make the effort to park considerately.

Our 2 bedroom aparment was ok for size and fitout, but the floorplan was strange. The ensuite bathroom was actually attached to the secondary bedroom, not the main.

Good for more than overnight, good self catering facilities. Good gym and a small pool as well. Short walk from Southern Cross station, very handy to the conference and exhibition centre. A convenience store and sushi bar is right across the road. A pub is on the next corner.

A weekend stay in Melbourne for the football at the MCg and shopping so this hotel was ideally located for our needs. Close to Spencer St station and the airport shuttle. On the "City Circle" Tram loop. Close to Crown Casino.
Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom amenities were basic - no shower cap provided!!!
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Luggage storage provided so you can still go shopping after checking out!!

Thank you Katielou for your comments and I was delighted to read that you found the room to be large and clean. I was also particularly pleased to read that you felt the team friendly and helpful. Just to confirm that shower caps, toothpaste and shavers are not part of our bathroom amenities however we do stock these items at reception. We hope to welcome you back soon.

We stayed here in July, 2012 and were pleased with our choice. The hotel was a comfortable walk, with luggage, from Southern Cross station where the SkyBus from the airport drops you off. There is a tram stop right outside where we caught the free "City Circle" tram on numerous occasions to various city locations. The apartment was clean, well presented and comfortable, with good cooking facilities, should you choose to use them, we didn't however as we chose to eat in the "Cafe Keyif", right next door. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall I thought this hotel was pretty good value for money.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 7th floor and didn't find it was too noisy, just a little traffic noise.

We stayed here in December last year. We chose this place because it was close to the crown casino and the southern cross station.
the tram stop is conveniently located at the front of the hotel and it was very easy just to hop on and off the free tram.
The rooms were clean although I didn't like the shower over the bath tub. I'm quite tall so it was difficult to stand and have a proper shower and the water pressure coming out of the shower head was pretty bad.
Overall a good stay and would definitely come back.

My daughter and I stayed here on the Easter holidays this year. The location was great. We had a one bedroom that was very spacious and well equipped. The staff were very helpful. We spent a lot of time in the heated pool and spa every arvo after sight seeing each day! Highly recommend it to others looking for great value and location.
