Very close to city and suitable family with children. Reasonable rates with kitchen equipped with complete cooking utensils. Within walking distance to Crown Casino; not much place for dining experience besides McD (opposite hotel). Tram stop is 50m from hotel and it will bring to South Melbourne/ St Kilda or City Centre.

We booked a two roomed apartment. It was ok, very scruffy, needs a good paint. Spiderweb that was almost a small blanket across the corner of the bedroom window. Someone has spilt coffee down the wall and it hasn't been wiped off!! Bathrooms grubby, no fan, no window. Very steamy. Deck was filthy with a sick, paper and cigarette butt... More

2 bedroom "deluxe" apartments are not deluxe. Small in size, 1 bedroom totally internal and single beds.staff at reception, once you have checked in really don't give a care that it's nothing like booked on website. Good location, but that's it. Would t recommend for any more that 2 people.

We stayed here for two nights and everything was great. The location is walking distance from everything and the suite was clean and new.

We booked a few months in advance and made sure we booked the deluxe rooms as there seemed to be a difference between them and the standard. When we arrived we checked in and went up to our room.

Stayed at Aria Apartments for 1 night to attend an awards ceremony at Crown Casino. Only 2 blocks away and an easy walk. Check in was easy but be aware you need a credit card or debit card and they freeze $300. Rooms are nice and clean. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit on the 11th floor. Can hear... More

FREE wifi in the rooms. So convenient to do business. Large rooms with full kitchen facilities and a decent view. Will be my number one choice for accommodation in Melb from now on, and I have tried many hotels before. So much cheaper than standard hotels too.
