We arrived on 26th Feb for a two night stay, before our flight back to the uk, we were greeted with a building site!
The Receptionist checked us in and then ran off to the office, she obviously had lots of work and was trying to work from both the desk and the office. We then got in the most unnerving lift, we have ever been in!
The apartments are well equipped, comfortable and clean, but dated. The location is very good if you like the lane ways of Melbourne, short walks to the station, the tram, the aquarium and federation square. The Receptionists are friendly and informed.
But.....we HOPE that the updating of the apartments is including 1. Double glazed windows, to block the noise of the alleys, no one needs to hear late night parties (unless you are in the party!) or early morning refuse collections 2. New floors, the creaking with every footstep is awful! 3. New lifts, the lifts, (well lift, one was out of action) are far from good, very scary.
Before booking, call, make sure the building works are finished! Unless you want to be woken by drills, share lifts with builders, tools, laundry, cleaning trolleys and cleaners, and have to dodge paint brushes and plasterers to enter and exit the building.
We agree that the building works need to go ahead, but a little warning would have been much appreciated.
