Large sized rooms. 2 bathrooms which is perfect for families. The only minor issue is not enough a/c or opening windows. 1 split system to for the whole unit was a bit too much for it. Also parking is very tight. Otherwise a great stay and close to everything. Nice and quiet also. Awsome views.

Importantly the bed was very large and comfortable, but he rest of the furnishings left a bit to be desired. For cooking/eating, the pots, pans and crockery were all reasonable quality, while the cooking utensils were weak and flimsy bareley able to dowhat they... More

A well maintained suite with great northern views of the city, walking distance to Southbank and Clarendon St, a tram ride to the CBD, and a short dive to the freeway. Staff were wonderful at all stages of my stay. Highly recommended.

I was in Melbourne for a week for business and found this apartment perfect for my needs. The full kitchen provided the option of dining in and the many restaurants and cafes nearby gave me the alternative. The addition of a washer and dryer also meant I didnt have to come home with a suitcase full of washing. I found... More

My family stayed one night midweek during the school holidays in a style apartment . All my daughter wanted was city views. Erin in reception was fantastic and found us an apartment on the 33 floor with breathtaking views. The apartment was huge, clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and accommodating. We will definately be back.
