Melbourne Short Stay Apartments Southbank Collection

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Our family of two adults and two older teenage children stayed for a week in an apartment on the 24th floor. There was plenty of room, clean, tidy and with wonderful views. Loved the location as it was just a very short walk to the river, restaurants, casino and city center. We also walked to Melbourne Park for the Australian Open. We used the pool nearly every day but just didn't have the time to use the tennis court. Will stay again.

My friend and I went to Melbourne for a mini break and stayed at City Point apartments in Bourke Street.
It was so good. All you could need for a few days and a good location.
Made our week-end.

Room Tip: Higher the better for the view

We had a wonderful apartment for our first visit and can only say our next stay was just as good. The apartments are extremely well furnished, modern, beautifully clean and met every requirement. The staff were very helpful and friendly. It is a very convenient location to access Melbourne's transport and attractions and we look forward to returning in the near future.

Room Tip: A room with a view over Melbourne and the Bay.

I stayed with my partner and my mum at Short Stay Apartments for 5 nights in a beautiful 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom apartment on the 34 th floor. We all loved the apartment which was very well appointed, modern and had great views over Melbourne. The kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked almost every night there. We really liked the location on the Southbank at the Yarra River with only a short walk of 10 minutes to the city centre. Restaurants, supermarkets and bars were also closeby and in walking distance. We would definetely recommand these apartments and would love to come back ourselves!!!

I stayed in a 3bed 2 bath apartment with a group of six. Bright, clean and generally pretty good. We had a few minor issues with aircondiditoning but staff promptly addressed those issues, and the apartment could of had a few more wine glasses given that it accomodated 6-7 people. The carpark, while convenient, needs an explanation of how to exit it but ultimately it wasnt difficult to work out! All round a very good apartment and I would stay again.

Booked for two apartments and asked same building same level. Got same building because I asked twice but same level remained a dream. They did not care in fact. Given the security policy in force, staying in this building was a nightmare. At check-in, the guy forgot to debit my credit card for reasons I still yet do not understand. Thus they try the next few days to debit the card for the total amount without the pin. At the end, VISA blocked the transaction at 3000A$ with a balance of 500$A. And then Short Stay blocked my access to one of the apartments whereas my wife and two of my children were still locked in. I get back the access to the apartment once I menace to set off the fire alarm and call the police. Damning day not saying the apartment floors were dirty, the dishwashers broken and the service far below the minimal level. Run away

Beautiful, modern, well-appointed, 2-bedroom apartment in a fabulous location just south of Yarra River in the Southgate neighborhood of Melbourne just a short walk across the bridge from Federation Square. The apartment was well maintained and included nearly everything needed for a short stay. If you are hiring a car, the parking accommodations are reasonably priced and incredibly convenient. The only issue we had was that the air con system was not able to keep up with the 40 degree heat wave and hence the bedrooms became hot and would not cool down until hours past sunset. We rented through Wotif and had a very good deal; hence this apartment was very good value for money.
