Stayed here twice both 5 night stays during the Melboure F1 - this year and 2011 (missed the 2012 race).This one of these points when I would like a 3.5 rating on tripadvisor as 3 would be to low but 4 is also a wee bit too high.
Basically a good service apartment in a decent location near to Victoria market. Check in was excellent and great advice re night market on Weds at Victoria market.
Our issues are with the apartment and sometimes housekeeping. Apartment layout is generally ok but what the heck is it with the huge aircon/heater units on the floor? This place appears relatively new surely they could have been built in or at very minimum attached to wall/ceiling. In a one bedroom apartment it requires some very creative arrangement of the living furniture to make things work - we had the sofa on 45 degree angle. Housekeeping is also inconsistent depends very much on which individual services your room in our experience.
That being said a very decent sized place to stay with a very well equipped kitchen, but again the frying pan is so large you cannot use the other (of two) electric rings while using it. It's good location and front desk were nothing but friendly and helpful, but let down a bit various bits and bobs many of which could be fixed without much trouble.
