Toilet door not closing. No toilet brush. Window locked. Very dusty. Incredibly strong smell. Broken accesories all around. No isoletion between rooms. No windows in rooms. Forcefully fit furniture in rooms - making it impossible to open the wardrobe (had to carry some items out). Brush or window porblems were not fixed even after reporting. Stayed quite long time and... More

Located at the CBD Melbourne, tram just outside the door. Also allow you to have convenience to explore Melbourne on foot. Some in room amenities might be old but its okay for staying few nights. Good experience with good value!

Good tips from staff by using Tram to connect to Skybus (Southern Cross Station). Which is much much better by using free Shuttle bus provided by skybus from Southern Cross Station to CBD. Great apartment, clean, well facilitation with washing machine and dryer. If a good frying pan can also be provided that will be perfect. But I had zero... More

Terrific location - right in the centre of the city with so many places within just a short walking distance. I have stayed here several times before and I will be staying again in the future. Love it.

Very uncomfortable beds and pillows, lighting in bathroom not good and only 1 mirror in whole apartment. The location is excellent, the cost quite good. We were staying to go to a wedding and the lighting in bathroom made it hard to apply makeup or even for my husband to shave. Bathroom walls where dirty.

Good central location, clean rooms which are not the newest, but some modern items have been added to try update the place. Friendly, helpful staff. We did request a third key, as three staying in the room, and were told we would be advised on this but didn't hear anything from anyone, not a big issue as the three of... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
