Stayed in 2 bdrm, 1 bath Apt on 65th Fl. The apt was clean, relatively comfortable and well appointed for short stays. The bedrms are minuscule. Couldn’t unpack bags; placed bags on bed to remove close then closed bag and placed against walls. The desk staff person at check in was worthless; very, very limited English skills. The construction quality of building is a significant problem. Hard to sleep at night because the building creaked and moaned, because of the high winds on the 65th Fl, and quite scary. Also, the windows are poorly constructed and uninsulated so it was like being in a wind tunnel. The worse part of our stay was an alarm to evacuate the building at 11:30 PM. Apparently there was a fire somewhere and we where told to leave (computer voice). Went to the emergency exit stairs (no signs) and people were piling down stairs...very crowded and barely moving. There were some elderly people that were having difficulty managing going down stairs. After going down about 30 floors someone said they called the fire dept and that it was a false alarm. No PA system in stairwell. We had to go back up stair well to the 47th( some one was holding the door open) before we could get back inside to catch an up elevator. The doors are locked so once in stairwell you can’t get back in. Frankly the place is a fire trap. We were told by someone that’s stayed here that the false alarms happen frequently. Finally the elevators don’t all work. Frequently only one works. I wouldn’t stay here again.
Great location in walking distance to Night Life, STH Melbourne Markets Southbank, DFO. Car space included in secure parking free wifi. Closed in Balcony so safe for children with great views to ST Kilda and over city we walked everywhere and only short drive to Queen Vic Markets easy access onto city link. Will be staying here again when in the City. Stayed with Teenager while attending Comic Con.
