A group of 3 ladies stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. Room was serviced daily and very clean. The only thing missing was a full length mirror as there was only one very small mirror in the bathroom. Great location highly recommended.

Good Morning Annemaree, Thanks for taking some time to leave a review & for the constructive feedback about the addition of a full length mirror. Though our bedroom cupboards have sliding mirrored doors a more accessible mirror for the travelling party is a great idea. Thanks again. More

I stayed at this property before it was being taken over by breakfree. At that time, it was a 5 stars stay: central location, reasonable price, clean and free wifi. However during this stay, firstly it was unexpected for us to find that you need to pay for wifi. After checking into the apartment, we found that the apartment was... More

Good Afternoon Sylvia, Thanks for the review. Whilst I definitely challenge your assessment of the prior business and the condition of the room under their management we do value your feedback and have assessed the cleaning items you mentioned. The "triple sheeting" of our beds allows a much more hygienic practice than the utilization of covers and is utilized in... More

Great location - close to arcades, DeGraves St and Flinders Street station. Easy walk with a suitcase from Flinders St station. The apartment was quiet even though it faced busy Collins Street. The bed was very comfortable. Great value for money when travelling with a family. Staff were friendly and helpful. We walked past the place a couple of times... More

Good Afternoon Michelle R, Brilliant to hear you took advantage of our great rates and snagged some CBD value on your recent trip. Less on accommodation means more for the fun stuff like turmeric latte's and deconstructed coffee's in Degraves St. Once the refurbishment is all done we will be adding some self-lit signage to the building which will increase...

Good location, very obliging friendly staff. Had a room near the lift so it was noisy. All amenities in the apartment and generally good value for the money. Would stay there again but request a room as far from the lift as possible. Good secutiry.

great central location - rooms nice and clean. Don't like lift up to floors 11 and 12 - very slow and does not feel that safe - great lift to floors 10. Security good. Has everything you need for short stay.

Goof Morning Cheryl, Thank you for taking some of your time to leave us a review. Thought slow, we can assure you the 2nd lift to our top floors is very safe.

Great value for the room, changing lifts was annoying but bearable. Had to fix the sliding door to the main bedroom (put it back on the tracking - wonder why cleaners hadn't noticed that?) Otherwise I'd highly recommend this place.

Good Morning Shaney, Thanks for the review. We are working on having a digital Foxtel offering installed across the building and will be as keen as you to get our sports viewing up to scratch.

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.
