“SUPER Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Stayed here last August and wow THIS IS AMAZING. A 1 bedroom apartment out of the city but close enough to the city for a quick walk into it. The price was amazing also. Across the road is the Casino with picture theatres, live shows and another short walk is to numerous eateries that open all hours of the day and night. The apartment complex was quiet, has a great pool and all modern conveniences, its spotlessly clean . Across the road you can even get on board the Restaurant Tram and eat and travel the city in leisure. 20 minutes walk or 10 mins by the free tram to Docklands and the DFO. Thanks Melbourne Shortstay i will be returning to stay with you. ,

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor if you can all views are fabulous

It was indeed unique and pleasant apartment to stay in. I was pleased with the cleanliness and very approachable and friendly staff. You feel safe with their security measures and very quite and peaceful place to relax. Perfect location if you are hanging around the areas of the Crown Casino, Exhibition Convention Centre, DFO, Southern Cross Station and of course the Southbank area.

Room Tip: Valuable on both single and family travel.

We stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bathroom apartment for 4 nights over Christmas. Friendly staff, clean room and very convenient location. Was everything we needed! Will stay here again and will be recommending to family and friends for future stays too.

I stayed at the Melbourne Short Stay Apartments on Whiteman St as I was attending a conference at the nearby convention centre. Please note -- these are different than the City Rd apts.
The location couldn't have been better for my purposes -- a five minute walk to the convention centre.
The apartment itself was clean and well-appointed, and represented an excellent value for the location -- I believe I paid A$169/night.
I did notice that the lifts were always full of young student or very young professional types. I'm not sure if there's some arrangement with a local university. I didn't see many other holiday-maker types about.
I would say that even though my apartment was on L21, the street noise was still significant, esp the bells from the trams below. I found this sort of charming, but I couldn't say it was a quiet room.
It did however have lovely views.
The fitness centre was kind of disappointing, but the pool was ok.

Room Tip: Perhaps try a room off of Whiteman St to avoid tram/road noise.

Recently stayed in 3 bedroom apartment (vue grande ). really spacious, handy to shops, tram stop basically at door. Apartment had every thing we needed. Full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, laundry and considering it was on busy Clarendon St, we were concerned about traffic noise; but had no issues with it. Nice to have accomodation where you can actually open windows and sit on balcony. As we were on a shopping trip the Vue Grande was an excellent choice as close to DFO and city. Will certainly stay here again and recommend to all

I stayed at Melbourne Short Stay Apartments on Whiteman with some work colleagues when we visited Melbourne for a conference. We had a 3-bedroom 2-bathroom apartment on the 18th floor, with spectacular views over Melbourne. The apartment was beautifully maintained, comfortable, roomy and suited our needs perfectly. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the convention centre and Crown Casino, and close to lots of great restaurants along the river. Conveniently, there was also a supermarket downstairs, so we could get a few nibblies. My only criticism was that we could not get the air conditioner to work, but this was probably user-error rather than a fault with the A/C system. There was also a little bit of traffic noise, but you would expect this in the middle of a busy city. I would highly recommend this property and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a city-view room
