The location here worried me a tad being right along side the train station and tracks, but having a room on the other side seemd to be less interesting but quiet. The rooms are smaller than i was lead to believe on the website, but nice none the less. The idea of paying up front is interesting... please dont forget to show me the itemized account tho hey??
i dont like to sign a CC slip without an itemized account - no other place does it, so be nice now. I was double charged for the breakie even tho the policy supposedly is to pay up front... so how come the breakie appeared again at the end of the stay? Cant have it both ways now lads?
After the reception staff just wanting to take the money and that's kinda all, i find my keys dont work...back i go to get someone to help - nope keys are new and rubbish ...sighhhh. Oh well so i will pick up new keys when i leave the property, shall i?. no one will bring them up to me
Love the taxi call button on the phone - handy. The cafe next door is quite nice bordering on too trendy tho... (eeeek flies on the open food) but not sure where the other one was i was told was there. When its typical Melbourne weather sometimes a close by cafe or some sort of room service is good. (Cool car shop near that cafe if you want to dream)
Nice bed, but the bathrooms need some space to put your things. Perhaps you need to take the full length mirror off the sliding wardrobe door behind the squeezy space beteween the bed and it, so we can actually use it tho... maybe put ti on the back of the front door? Forget the fancy paint job, the mirror would be nice there to make sure one is dressed suitably before heading out to SY?. :-)) The slamming of the internal doors makes it a noisy sleep both at night and in the morning.... maybe a thing on the doors to make them close slowly or thicker walls? its slamming central.
Nice-ish lounge area albeit a tad small compared to other apartments i have stayed in. Location saves this one in my Book , so i will continue my comparisons in the area ... 3 down ... plenty more to go to check out the space for $$.
I will give 100 points for no bleeding bath tubs under the shower tho... the most dangerous thing known to any traveler is the bath under the shower.. sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip, crash !!! (they hardly ever have rubber mats anymore do they?)
