We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the 12th Floor. It had lovely views of the harbor, and is only 5 minute walk to Telstra Dome (for my first Australian Rules Football game) and 10 minutes to the CBD. There is a tram nearby, and they are doing lots of work to make the Docklands boardwalk a hip, up and coming place with nice restaurants.
I've enclosed photos. For the money, it can't be beaten. Clean, comfortable, and the check-in and check-out staff were very friendly. Free parking just downstairs. Washing machine and dryer, dishwasher and full kitchen.
There are only a few criticisms. The first is the design of the bathtub. The faucet is right in the middle and protrudes more than normal. If you're taking a shower, you tend to hit it with your knee. The second is the bare minimum of the necessities. For example, the fridge is a mid-size, but the space is for a large fridge. The dishwasher is a cheap one, as are the knives and cupboards. On the whole, small criticisms and it is a public apartment, so it's unrealistic to expect the quality of a house I'm buying.
All in all, it really made our week in Melbourne a very pleasant stay. Highly recommended.
