3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2009

I stayed here with my partner for 3 nights the week before Christmas and I have the say probably one of the only positives was we got a one bedroom apartment quite cheap for this time of the year, the other was that the location was very central and therefore very easy to get around. However on the other hand, the room was very small, was on the 5th floor but our room looked right onto a railway line which made it extremely noisy day and night. The most unpleasant thing however was that there were no blinds or shutters on the windows which were quite large and therefore at night people could see right into our room, no privacy whatsoever. To add our bathroom door didn't actually fit the frame and therefore we won't able to shut the door properly. Wouldn't stay here again unless I really had to.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on our around the world trip. We moved to this hotel after spending 3 nights at the Holiday Inn a couple of blocks away & this place was refreshingly different with it's balcony & kitchenette. The hotel is very modern & quite minimalist which i like. The service was excellent here & much warmer & friendlier than at the Holiday Inn. Recommended.

I like the Medina Apartments - they are spacious and well appointed. And the Medina Northbank did not disappoint. I had a one-bedroom apartment and could not fault it. The star rating is accurate! There is on-site parking for a reasonable fee, They do not have a restaurant but there is an excellent cafe next door and you can backcharge from here to your room. I'll use this hotel again on my visits to Melbourne

We stayed for a three night, long weekend. It was a fantastic location - a very short walk from the Sky Bus depot at the railway station. We arrived on an early flight but were greeted by friendly staff who stowed our luggage for a few hours and did offer to speed up our room availability. We took ourselves off for the day using the free city circle tram which is conveniently situated right outside the hotel.

The room we had had a separate bedroom with fully equiped kitchen. The price was really good on a special rate and was serviced daily. Some of the shelves were a bit dusty but the linen and towels were good quality. For the price we paid, I do think this was value for money.

The location was central for everything we wanted to do. Dining car tram was close by, the wine tours picked up close by and the CBD, with the shopping, was either a short walk or free tram ride.

It is a bit noisy, but take some ear plugs because you are in the centre of the city.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2009

We stayed in this hotel for two nights on arrival to Melbourne. The location is good, its at one end of the main street (Flinders) and very near Southern Cross train station, which was particularly useful for us! So central location is great!

We found the room was very clean and tidy, we had a studio room so we had a small kitchenette. Its not really very substantial, cooking evening meals was not really possible as we only had a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge but no hob. But that was fine for a few nights. Room was very modern and up to date, good tv with lots of channels. Big comfy bed. Bathroom was nice, shower was useless and they did not provide us with a toilet brush which was a little odd but other than that standard modern hotel bathroom.

Checking in was great and the reception staff for very helpful, providing maps and info and also an umbrella for the rain which was great!

What we liked best was the modern feel of the room and its cleanliness what we liked least is that it was not amazing value for money, we stayed at other places in Sydney etc that provided us with a full kitchen for the price and the noise from the trains was quite substantial, if your a light sleeper this is not for you, the room vibrated with the noise! But it was great for a couple of nights.
