Apartments Ink
Ranked #5 of 19 Hotels in St Kilda
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (2 Adults/2 kids). The apartments are well located, just a short tram ride into the city or a short 20 min walk to St Kilda Beach. Plenty of restaurants located in the area and an Aldi supermarket with a bottleshop and good hours located under the apartments The room was spacious and had all the facilities we wanted. Heating was excellent (stayed mid winter), beds comfortable, kitchen facilities great - even a dishwasher!. Bathroom was well appointed and has washing machine & dryer. Foxtel with all channels was a bonus. parking is very secure and well priced at $10/day. Staff were all courteous and helpful. have no hesitation in recommending to friends.

Stayed: July 2014, traveled with family

We stayed at Apartments Ink for 2 nights travelling as a couple, in a single bedroom apartment.

The apartment was quite spacious with a small lounge room, a desk, and a kitchenette. I would recommend a place like this for a longer stay because we really didn't need to use the extra space.
However it was very comfortable.

The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was great - it was modern and very clean.

However I would recommend a car, St Kilda is a little way out of the CBD. Car parking is offered at $10 a night which is reasonable.
Overall I would recommend staying here particularly for a longer stay- for shorter stays it might be better to stay in the CBD.

Hi amd_05

Thank you for your wholesome review! I am more than happy to hear that the room met all of your needs. Our One Bedroom Apartments can cater for long stays and are great for guests who want self contained facilities. Please feel free to stay longer next time you visit St Kilda, we would be more than happy to accommodate you both.

We stayed in a deluxe 2br apartment with three kids. We accidentally double booked. The management called to check ahead of time and sorted things out. When we arrive our room rate was double what we expected. The woman at reception was helpful and escalated to the manager to sort things out quickly professionally, without fuss.

Worked well for our clan. Well appointed with parking. Would not suit someone wanting to be in the centre of St Kilda life but suited us down to the ground.

Very nice stylish apartment. Nice large bathroom with european laundry includeed. Good layout
with separate bedroom (kingsize bed). We had a nice meal at the Post Office Hotel down the road and walked out the pier for coffee and cake, where there are lovely views of the city skyline .
We will come back to stay and see more of the area.

Every time I stay at this hotel it is excellent. Very clean, friendly staff, good sized apartments. Apartments are well equipped and staff are eager to help if you need anything. I was able to self cater most meals to keep cost of eating out down. The Hide and Cheek cafe up the road is great. Really nice food and staff , reasonably priced too. Location is convenient to St Kilda highlights and transport to city. Convenient to have Aldi just below.

We recently stayed here as a family with our two children. Accommodation is in a good location and close to transport and the front office staff were fantastic in answering any questions we had. We were upgraded to a two bedroom deluxe from the standard two bedroom we had booked and found the apartment to be a good condition with all amenities we required. We were also supplied with a port-a-cot and high chair at no additional charge. Washing machine and dryer in rooms is a great bonus. Car Parking is also provided with the rooms. We enjoyed our stay and will look to stay here again when we are next in Melbourne.

Room Tip: Opt for a high floor so you are away from traffic in and out of the supermarket below.

We stayed at Ink for 3 nights at bro's recommendation and it was a good one. Our family of four had a well-equipped apartment with two separate rooms for us and kids. Rooms were clean and spacious, and the washing machine and dryer were most helpful! Service was minimal, but adequate. It's a big plus that the supermkt Aldi was juz downstairs which made our stay more like home.
