We have just stayed in a two bedroom apratment. Darling Towers is in a great location in the heart of the city with a tram stop at the front door. Also a short walk to MCG, Federation Square and Flinders Street station. The reception desk on the 8th floor is a little strange and unfriendly. Our room was clean until we used the dishwasher. On opening the dishwasher to unpack it after use we found it was alive with cockroaches, from then on every morning we found them running over the sink. We contacted housekeeping and a lady came and sprayed but this was not very effective. A second lady attended after we mentioned it the next day with an almost empty can of fly spray. We requested a late check out but were only offered a 2 hour extension and nobody bothered to ask how our stay was or enquire about the cockraoch problem. We would consider staying again as location and security is good and hope the rooms are fumigated.
