“Good Accomodation in Central location”
Reviewed 28 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

A quite comfortable stay in this apartment which is in a central location in the Arts Precinct. The apartment has good lighting and is quite airy. There are 2 bedrooms and can sleep up to 4 people. One bedroom faces outside and the other bedroom is inside with not much ventilation and views to outside -it would help if there was some fans on a hot day in both rooms. Bedrooms need air conditioning in hotter parts of the year as air conditioning is only in the main part of the apartment where the kitchen is. Transport is excellent with trams outside to CBD and to South Melbourne There is IGA and Discount Chemist nearby.
Liked the kitchen and laundry and all the modern facilities. Also liked the safety areas outside apartment. We used the pool and the Gym in the ground floor which was great!The management was very helpful and always on hand to help out. Great WiFi using NBN. Thanks for the stay!

Thanks for your feedback Gerard, both here and by phone. The owners have already agreed to some ventilation improvements. We are also making it easier to open the window in the 'inside' bedroom. It is a light and airy apartment isn't it? And the location is brilliant too, as you say: so close to the Arts Precinct, St Kilda Road and the CBD nearby. Not only is there a great pool and gym downstairs, there is a fantastic rooftop area, with great 360-degree views of the city. I'm just pleased to know that you loved staying there.
Cheers,
Chris McDonald.

“Fantastic apartment and location”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I love how this apartment is so close to everything - tram right out the front, an IGA supermarket just down the road, the Arts Centre and Southbank. We loved staying for a few days and really didn't want to go home. You cannot go past this apartment for a couple of weeks or just a weekend getaway.

Thanks for your review Vanessa, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay so much. It has a great holiday location hasn't it? The Arts Precinct, St Kilda Road, Kings Domain (gardens) and the CBD are all within easy walking distance; or as you say, you can easily jump on the tram out the front. I hope we see you again with your returning-guest discount. In case you didn't realise, we have multiple different apartments in many locations around inner Melbourne.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your apartment and the location so much. NGV Arts Centre Retreat is new to our group, and we have not been able to have proper photos taken yet, so it must be reassuring for others to know it is as good as we describe it.
It's good to know that we served you well and made your stay as easy and straightforward as possible. This is our aim.
If you return to Melbourne again, we have multiple different apartments in many locations around inner Melbourne, so we have plenty of variety available. Looking forward to seeing you again; with your returning-guest discount.
Regards,
Chris

“Perfect apartment, great location”
Reviewed 6 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed here at the beginning of February and absolutely loved everything about the apartment. The location was perfect and the apartment was very nicely decorated. We used the pool and gym everyday and also made use of the BBQ on the 22nd floor (with a great view of the city). Would highly recommend staying here to anyone. Thanks Chris

NGV Arts Precinct Retreat is one of our newer properties, and it is indeed proving popular with our guests. I'm pleased to hear that you loved both the location and the apartment, and that you had time to enjoy the rooftop BBQ, as the view really is quite stunning. Chris

“Great apartment in a great location!”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We recently stayed here and what a great location! Everything is so easy to access.Shopping, galleries, the CBD and sporting arenas all within walking distance! Close to other transport such as trams and bike hire. With a supermarket close by you can even choose to make a cheese platter and enjoy the views from the rooftop deck! We loved it and really enjoyed our stay. Dealing with the team was easy and would recommend this apartment to my friends who visit Melbourne in future! Thanks :-)

I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the apartment so much Christine. NGV Arts Precinct Retreat is new to the StayCentral group in Southbank, so it is great that we got everything right. This review has ended up on our Melbourne CBD site for some reason, but both locations have very high star ratings, so it doesn't really matter. I didn't realise there was a bike hire nearby. It's nice to know that the only surprises are good ones! Yes, the rooftop deck with the city views is truly spectacular, and the apartment really is close to so many things, including the Arts Precinct, St Kilda Road and the major gardens across the road. We do try hard to make things easy for our guests, so I am again pleased that you found it easy to deal with our team. We look forward to see ing you again; perhaps at one of our many other locations; just for a bit of variety. Chris Owner/Manager StayCentral Apartments
