“Southbank Deluxe - All you need”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Melbourne Short Stay Apartments Southbank Deluxe - Stayed October 2013

Was the room clean - Yes it was spotless.

Was the bed comfortable - Queen size bed and it was very comfortable

Was the environment quiet - The apartments are on Whiteman St, near the Casino There was noise from the trams, but did not keep us awake.

Location - This was our first stay in Short Stay Apartments, There is a tram stop right outside the door on Whiteman st which had routes 96 & 109 into the city. On the nearest corner, there is also another tram stop, which also goes into the city. It would be a 25 minute walk to Bourke St Mall.

The staff - All staff were helpful and friendly. No complaints there.

General information - The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was close to the Casino and South bank promenade, which gave you many options for dining and entertainment. The booklet in the apartment for the oven was not in English, so it was very hard to use.

If you don't mind the 25 minute walk to the CBD, this place is all you need.

Exactly what we wanted, modern, spacious, surprisingly quiet, nice views, close to excellent restaurants, close to transport, good value, grocery store and bottle shop around the corner. We will be back next year for the Australian Grand Prix 2014.

Room Tip: Proximity to Southbank and the restaurants was exactly what we were looking for.

Pleasantly surprised with Melbourne Short Stay Apartments Southbank Deluxe, close proximity to Crown Casino, public transport and only a short walk to the city.
The staff were very helpful and accommodating.
Our one bedroom apartment was clean, spacious and the price was very reasonable, I would recommend this accommodation, if you don't mind your room not being serviced daily - we didn't.
I will definitely be returning.

Modern and spacious apartment. Convenient if needing to be close to the Convention Centre, but also has a tram stop directly across the road which will take you straight into Bourke Street Mall. Our apartment was starting to show wear and we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the apartment - the towels had lots of hairs through them. Good apartment, but probably wouldn't stay again.

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.
