Reviewed November 1, 2006

The decor was interestingly modern and chic, very 'New York style' as advertised, and the room was compact and well-equipped with almost everything within reach.

Could do with a bit more lighting or stronger lighting as it was rather dim even with all the lamps on.

Didn't quite like the washbasin in the shower which was a tad too small with no counter top on which to put your things. The shower was fixed to the wall, with no shower hose, which is a bit of a let down.

Lots of big mirrors in the room and bathroom which is cool. Hairdryer, ironing board, iron and the other extras are plus points.

Very obliging and friendly staff at the reception desk which makes up for the other minuses. Service at the restaurant was good too. Buffet breakfast was good.

Didn't like the fact that there was no ramp at the foyer to the reception (just steps) which doesn't help if you are struggling to carry your luggage up or down the steps.

Lots of taxis outside so not a problem getting on one.

I agree with some of your other reviewers. The room I was given had no natural light, & if I walked through a few corridors I did eventually find a tiny little balcony, overlooking some office blocks and a mingy little swimming pool. The bathroom was good, nice modern fittings, but the restaurant service was a bit ho-hum. Location is poor, unless you want to be close to the interstate rail terminal and away from all the exciting places Melbourne has to offer.

  • Liked — modern bathroom fittings
  • Disliked — poor location, dark rooms, badly fitted carpet
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask to see the room before committing yourself. Check out the breakfast arrangements first.

Our 2 night stay was well below our expectation. Very difficult to park the car and extreme concern that the keys are left on the windscreen by the staff. The description of the apartment stated a private stairway - they did not state that was the only access to the suite when the lift goes no further than the 18th floor. The suite is a bed sitting room with extremely poor bathroom amenities - very small and basic. Overall a shame for a newly refurbished apartment but nice views from the balcony.

  • Liked — the view from the 19th floor balcony
  • Disliked — having to drag the luggage up the stairs
  • Tips/Secrets — don't stay there
