“Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 5 nights. We had a street level & street facing apartment. Requested a street facing apartment as we had read the train line side can be noisy. Our request was met. Rooms were modern, big & clean. Two good quality flat screen TV's made our stay as a family easier. We all found our beds to be very comfortable. Bathroom & kitchen facilities were clean, shower was great. Whilst we did find car park a little snug we didnt have any issues parking our car. Kids loved the pool & steam room. Pool was not heated on arrival but this was fixed during our stay. Located 5min walk from South Yarra train & tram stop. Took 10mins on tram to city. Close to supermarkets, cafes etc. Would stay here again and would request a street facing room. Couldn't hear the trains from our apartment but it was noisy at the back of the building next to train line. Our apartment was opposite reception which did cause a little bit of noise but we still slept very well.

Room Tip: Request a street facing room if your a light sleeper

We booked this on-line with no fuss and no problems used the Entertainment Card for discounted rate. Easy to find, great location, easy walk to Toorak Rd for restaurants & supermarket. Great apartment, clean and very comfortable. Even though its right on the train track - we never heard the trains at night due to the window being double glazed. Safe car park. Good value. We ate at a great Thai restaurant - Golden Triangle - short walk from the Medina - yummy food. Can recommend staying here. Wouldn't bother with the coffee at the front desk.

We booked 10days at this location with our move back from Singapore to Melbourne. It was located in a great location and we liked going down to the local restaurants which were only a short walk away, The train is in easy access and driving into the city was also simple. The 1 bedroom room was very nicely appointed and bed very comfortable. We also often cooked in the kitchen which we found well setup for this. The staff were very friendly and helpful and allowed us to check in early when we arrived from Singapore, which was great. We would definitely stay here again.

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
