My 16 year old daughter and I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for a shopping trip and had a great stay. We arrived about lunchtime and were given our room straight away. There is a large kitchen and living area, good sized bedroom (we had twin beds) and a large bathroom. Everything was very clean and the beds were so comfortable that we both slept for an unheard of 11 hours on the first night!
It isn't the most modern of apartments décor wise but that didn't worry us. We loved the location - literally around the corner from all the restaurants in Chinatown, a 10 minute walk to Lygon street, short walk to Bourke street mall etc and you could also walk to the MCG or Rod Laver Arena; we got a taxi to Hisense because all our shopping had left us with very sore legs! At $7.70 it was well worth it.
We didn't notice much noise at all either. When you open the sliding door to the balcony you can definitely hear it but as I said above, we slept really well (and I am a light sleeper) on both nights.
I also have to make mention of the staff - all we dealt with were super friendly, helpful and very efficient. After staying at quite a few places with indifferent staff it was a lovely change. We will definitely stay again.
