Reviewed April 19, 2013

Was very surprised after recommending these apartments to a friend that she told me she had bad reviews on TA. I don't know where these people stayed but it was certainly not at the apartments I was in. On the city edge with easy access by car or public transport, these are exceedingly good value for money. As a party of four we had well presented rooms with lovely linens, a fully equipped kitchen, full-size bath & shower, dining table & flat screen TV. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, there was plenty of info about city attractions & out of town tours and always someone on hand to help with bookings or directions. I would thoroughly recommend Apartments on Lygon and do!

Room Tip: Lygon St side is sunny & peaceful views of Melbourne Cemetery (well worth a look around!).

Very impressed!!

Me and my partner recently stayed here and had a wonderful time. The staff from the place were great right from handling the booking all the way through to the over and above service that they offered during our stay.

On a first time visit to Melbourne this hotel was perfectly located, the tram on the doorstep took us anywhere we needed to go and was very close to all the things we wanted to see.

I will definitely being staying here again and would recommend to all that i know for sure.

This Hotel is extremely dirty. Dirty Linen , Hair in the bed , Dirty Bathrooms, We had booked our staff to stay at this hotel. They checked out the same night as they would not sleep in such dirty rooms. Terrible how a business can still be in business ??? We were told they would not refund the room cost as the bed was turned down. Well Yes after a pubic hair was found in it - I would not expect my staff to re make the bed. I have 8 photos of this room ! Horrid

Very average accomodation. Only redeeming feature was the updated bathroom which was clean and modern. Bed was terrible and hard, I never have a problem sleeping but woke up constantly during my stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful but the room is ugly and uninviting. Luckily the location on Lygon street is a short stroll to cafes, which is just as well because you wouldn't want to stay in the room too long!

I stayed for one night
... the good - location and free parking. Friendly staff on check in. good maps and local information in the rooms. Room was well priced ($139) and could sleep 4.
... the bad - an unlocked courtyard door which I only discovered when settling to bed after being out for a while. Unflushed toilet paper upon my arrival and no UHT milk in fridge, although teabags etc provided.
... the ugly - a long, black hair resting in between the sheets when I turned the covers back. Carpet is worn and well past it's prime.

Would I stay again ... probably not as there's lots of other accommodation options close by

Lovely place if you love big black rats. On arrival we swept the apartment and finished with a pile of dust and fluff. Corridors are musty and filthy. Quilt had stains on it and a sheet for a cover. One lampshade fell apart when we tried to switch on and both covered in dust. Kitchen appliances are connected to a powerboard which sparks and shorts out when two or more appliances are in use. Service is vague. Balcony is bare concrete and dirty. Paint peeling in places. Dirty ceiling in bathroom.
Could be a nice place to stay if presentation, cleanliness and service was vastly improved but once will be enough for us.
