I stayed with my family in a two bedroom apartment over a long weekend, which I selected after reading generally favourable reviews on this site. As noted in other reviews check-in has to be completed at another apartment location and these apartments are only serviced every 7 days.
The location is conveniently opposite Spencer Street Station and a 15 minute walk to most of the CBD's sights and restaurants. You're not in the thick of it, but it's central enough and easy to get around.
The apartment itself was dated and the carpets were nothing short of disgusting with large stains located in numerous spots throughout. The layout was decent and there was enough room for the three of us. There was construction on other apartments surrounding the block during the day and the windows were thin which meant there was definitely some street/tram noise throughout the night. The metal blinds were damaged, which lead to light leakage of the city lights in the evening and morning sunrise.
On the positive side of things the foyer was beautiful, concierge helpful and the apartment had everything we needed. However, I'd really only give this review at 2.5 star rating.
