It's not the Ritz, but if the money is coming out of your own pocket it's ideal.
I was pleasantly surprised with the apartment.
I travel to Melbourne several times a year and stay in a variety of budget hotels and usually in studio type rooms with not a lot of room and small facilities.
I found that this apartment suited my needs well being on my own, but if travelling with my wife may like a bit more room, and possibly one in a quieter location in the building.
The only major issue I had was that the power board required to use the kettle and charge my phone and laptop was faulty and probably needed to be replaced. I managed to work around this and reported it on departure. It would also be a good idea to have some details in the room in regard to the requirements of the apartment and details for contacts, how often the room would be serviced, nearest and recommended restaurants etc.
The main thing I liked about the apartment was it's location. It seemed to be no more than two or three blocks from everything you would need and also had free transfer to and from Southern Cross when using the Skybus.
They have a very nice facility here and I found the staff more than helpful.
I will be staying here now more regularly and I look forward to my next visit.
