“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Just spent four days at this lovely hotel in Sth Yarra. We were upgraded without asking for an upgrade and had a lovely two bedroom apartment. Just a short walk to Toorak rd for the tram or the train to the city. We had a well equppied kitchen so after a trip to Prahran Mkt (another great find) we opted to eat in for two nights. Our only gripe was the shower which whilst over the bath wasnt too bad, however water pressure was terrible, a good shower can be a make or break deal!

Was very pleased to stay here. We needed a 2 brm apartment and this was the best price available but did not disappoint. Very handy to trains and trams so very quick to get to the city - we also walked one day as there is a riverside walkway only 5 mins away from hotel that takes you through to Southbank that only took about 45 mins. Also handy to a very good range of restaurants and a really good wine shop.
The service was very friendly and the rooms kept clean. The only negative I could say is that I hate showers that do not have proper shower doors thereby making the bathroom wet. I do not understand why hotels have such showers as surely it shortens the life of the bathroom by water getting everywhere. Be aware that the mini bar is also quite expensive - $5 for a small choc bar and $6 for a tiny packet of Pringles.

Very modern apartments, good position (unless you are looking for a pub!) plenty of cafes and restaurants, had a great meal at "Chapellis" Restaurant in South Yarra, ask for "Simpa" as your waiter. Also had a good breakfast at the Republic Cafe just up the road from the apartments.
Very modern decor, excellent service and nice size balconies. No complaints

We went for a 2 bedroom apartment as there were 4 of us and stayed there in July 2012. Bedrooms came with Queens size beds for a very reasonable price. Rooms were very clean and the service was good and staff very friendly. Full Kitchen including washing machine, dryer, iron, etc. Five minute walk to South Yarra train station, restaurants, night life, Chapel Street or 20 minute walk to MCG and tennis centre. Everything within easy reach. Would definitely stay here again. Evn though it is close to the train tracks, we didn't hear one train all night.

Room Tip: Most apartments have balconies

Thankyou for your great feedback on your recent stay with us in a 2 bedroom apartment. The team and I are delighted to hear you enjoyed our location and facilities provided in the apartments.
It is also great to hear you did not hear any trains throughout the night! Our recent install of soundproofing we believe has made a huge difference and we are glad you had a good night's sleep.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Stayed here for 3 nights July/August and was most impressed. Had a 2bedroom apartment which was clean and well furnished, and most important, WARM! It was just lovely! Well appointed furnishings and a full kitchen, extremely comfortable. Housekeeping was ok, maybe could be reviewed from time to time. The front desk was excellent, especially Jessica who was very professional in our dealings. Car parking available, but being in the area there probably is no need for a car as public transport, ie. trams/trains almost on the door step, about 5-10min walk.
Not to mention all the lovely shops and cafes/restaurants, also the movie theatre a 10min walk.
My only (constructive) criticism would be the wi fi, very expensive. I took my laptop but when I found out the cost, just decided to use my iphone instead. I guess not such a big deal if one has a smart phone. I really think this needs to be addressed. Apart from that, this is an excellent place to stay, and I will definitely stay here again, and reccommend to my friends.

Single dad with 2 kids stayed in a 2 bedroom apaprtment for 8 days over the July 2012 school holidays. Great location about 500m from the train station. Lots of cafes close by ... although we cooked quite a few times in the apartment. On the whole, service was excellent with staff very helpful and reliable. Promise to have room ready by 2 pm was met with 1.50 SMS to say it was ready. Apartment was roomy, warm and clean. Kids loved pool. We had a car but next time would probably just go with public transport if staying in city.

I have rated excellent because this was excellent value for money.

Great 1 bed apt. But their cleaning was substandard. We complained to management but had to force desk clerk to see it before action taken. Pubic hair and blood stains not on.
