We had ourselves and our 2 kids (pretty much adults) in a 2 room, 1 bathroom apartment. We found the apartment excellent, clean, modern and overall of a very high standard. If/When we go again I think we would get 2 bathrooms, but it wasn't too big an issue. The location was excellent for us, as everything we had planned... More

This is our second time staying at this apartment and it is a great location with convenient car park. Car park is an extra cost. We stayed in the new building this time (which is just next door) and there is an amazing view of this side of Melbourne city. It's walking distance to Crown Casino and a short drive... More

Had a 2 bed apartment - serviced daily except Sunday. Clean and well priced close to good restaurants and the MECC. Day 1 light bulb missing in bedroom which was replaced very quickly, day 2 fridge broke - we were offered free breakfast at local cafe and fridge was replaced the next business day. Everything was great and handled well.... More

Five days work in Melbourne at The Convention Centre had the Aria Apartments in close walking distance. Apartment was roomy and well appointed. Clean and comfortable. Skyline view from the 26th floor on which I stayed. However I did ask to have a room away from the freeway side but still got one overlooking it. Over the weekend the car... More

We rented 2x 2bed/1bath apartments for a long weekend and were placed on the 8th and 9th floors (one above the other). There were 4 to an apartment, which was pretty cosy if you wanted to spend time in the apartment, but it was fine. The kitchen was adequate for a 4 night stay, but you couldn't prepare an 'entertainers... More

First time at aria southbank, not so impressed. The pictures on the net are a false advertisement for what you really get, i was told the apartments are full sized and large..the balcony is 3 meters long with no outdoor setting, the kitchen is full size with a bin that would only fit a nappy in. The car park is... More

sorry you didn't enjoy the space. Our photos reflect all the different sized apartments available- from a Studio to a 3 bed room apartment. We take great pride in our spacious apartments so I can only think that perhaps you booked a studio apartment, which is approx 53 m2 - our smallest apartment. More

Aria apartments is a quality property with great rooms with city views however, poor customer service from staff was displayed immediately upon arrival. At time of booking we asked for a 2 bed 2 bath apartment and happily payed the extra costs for this as it was most suitable for 4 adults. As we arrived we were greeted by a... More

I stayed on a 3 bedroom deluxe apartment on the 33rd floor of the adjoining 'Bank Apartments' with 3 friends. The living area of the apartment was outstanding. There was plenty of room to move around and the views of the city and surrounds have to be seen to be believed. The room was well furnished with modern furniture and... More

I stayed for one night on a business trip and wasn't overly impressed. The rooms were nice but the TV didn't work and when we tried to call reception no one answered. The apartments are in a busy part of Melbourne so I understand some noise but it was really loud we all had trouble sleeping and our view well... More

We had a two bedroom apartment which was fabulous. It was really spacious, had two bathrooms and a nice view of the city lights. The 24 hr reception was convenient too. The parking was a little challenging but I would definitely stay here again.
