Wow! Booked this at the last minute after a lot of procrastination and seriously won't go elsewhere in future. Checkin staff super friendly and helpful. Apartment well appointed and spacious. Location vibrant and fun. Fireworks viewed from our lounge window. Numerous restaurants right across the rd. So much to do in this area and close to cbd.

I got a 2 bed/2 bath apartment in the Nolan building on the Esplanade in Docklands. Very clean modern apartment, with full foxtel, excellent views and high standard of furnishings. Balconies providing views onto the harbour. Huge TV in living room, smaller TV in main bedroom. Fully equipped, full size kitchen. This was excellent value, probably due to being off... More

Great location, easy walk to great restaurants and 2 minutes to trams. Well appointed apartment, internal laundry and bathtub great bonuses for families. Only negative is the apartment has those horrible water saving shower heads so you feel like you're being stabbed instead of showered. Finally, as per a review we read before booking- if you have a larger car... More

Hello Sweeneybus Thanks for your review and taking the time to make some really valid comments. The shower heads, unfortunately , are a law we must abide by in helping reduce the amount of water used. The apartment has lots of hot water though and that is what really matters and yes bigger cars should be on higher floors and... More

Although a slight walk from the CBD and train station, the Docklands Private Collection Apartments offer a significantly larger space for the same price. Even the smallest of apartments was enough for the three of us (2 adults, 1 baby). It has a kitchenette, large bathroom and separate bedroom. Extremely quiet living space. It is literally an apartment, so you... More

We stayed in the Digital Drive apartments, which is very conveniently located directly opposite a tram stop. The added bonus is that trams around the CBD are now free.

We stayed in an appartment with a marina view. And what a lovely view it was. Quite a large appartment for Melbourne, with a laundry and small but adequate kitchenette.
