We have now had a few trips to Melbourne for the tennis. Southbank One was the furthest away (about 30 min walk) but I would also say the best.
Upon arrival check in was easy as we were greeted and showed to our room. We got a free upgrade to a 3 bedroom which was great, even though the extra room did not get used. But once inside we noticed the floor was filthy! A quick call to the office and house cleaning was up in 10 minutes. The apartment was a great size and just about had everything (but no tongs for cooking!). The main bed would have been nice if it was at least a queen or king even better. Im sure it was only a double.
Location is right behind the Crown and only a short walk to most other parts of Melbourne. It is away from the hustle but close enough to everything. Supermarket below was good, but if needed more you could walk sth about 10 minutes and find a woollies and ALDI.
Pool was great and gym although small had enough to make a decent workout.
IT would have been nice to have free parking and wifi. There is lots of construction going on and our 1st night we left our windows open to be woken at about 6am. Once the windows were closed you could hardly hear anything. Only other issue we had at times was the lifts taking a while.
So it was not perfect but overall I think we will book here for next year again.
