“Still the best”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

This was my second stay with apartments ink. Very rare I will stay twice in the same hotel but they are an exception. 1 bedroom apartments are perfectly sized, and contain everything you need for a stay, and are kept very clean. Staff are all very knowledgeable about the area and friendly, and every interaction, even before I arrived was efficient and professional, thank you Chutima, Justin and particularly Carlie for being incredibly understanding when I left early and forgot to leave my key. Can say without hesitation this is my favorite Melbourne hotel.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 1 night to attend a friends birthday party in the same area. Apt was clean, large balcony, large bathroom and comfortable bed. There is a supermarket directly underneath and close to public transport. We had a car park underneath as well. Would stay again if we needed to be in the same area.

These apartments formed the base, for a couple of weeks, for the out of town family and friends for a wedding and were ideal. They are close to the trams, shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times and having the washer, dryer and dishwasher in the apartment was most convenient.

We stayed in 2 Bedroom apartment for three nights during a Melbourne 44 degree (115F) heatwave. The apartment was not cleaned properly for our arrival not that there was major issues just lots of little ones. To their credit the management arranged for them to be sorted at an agreeable time.

The heatwave condition highlighted the lack of sufficient air conditioning in the apartment with only one wall unit in the lounge room, this not powerful enough to push air into the bedrooms.

Having Aldi underneath was a bonus as we did make use of the kitchen.

The front desk staff were some of the best that I have dealt with and their knowledge of Melbourne and there enthusiasm to assist you was impressive, in particular the Thai lady.

Well located on the city fringe, a very secure building and parking area. In a nutshell I would stay here again. Every hotel/serviced apartment makes mistakes it is how they are attended to that counts and the Ink staff did very well at this :)

We stayed 2 nights there. I think the room is superb. Comfortable and clean. Security is good. I chose this apartments for its location. Near city, St Kilda and close to trams.
The TV needs updating, tho. The car park could be full at nights.
I will stay again next time.

Room Tip: Above ground level is quieter

Hi Terrence K,

It was great to read your review of Apartments Ink and that you thought the room was superb! Upgrading our TV's is something that we have been discussing for 2014 as I agree it is time to get larger ones.
Please get in contact with us the next time you are in Melbourne and I will happily help arrange accommodation for you.
