Booked three nights. Arrived an hour before check-in time, but were warmly welcomed. Room was spacious, with a double bed and one single bed, flat screen tv. table and chairs, smallish bathroom, but adequate, with a toilet, shower and basin. The kitchenette consisted of a microwave and a sink, kettle and toaster, plus dishes and coffee/tea makings.The room we had (Number 10) was on the first floor at the Powlett Street side, and had a very small balcony. On the windows there were both block-out blinds as well as shade blinds. The room also had a new air conditioner, which was nice and quiet. Free car parking is a bit tight, and would not recommend trying to park a family size car under the building. as we had to reverse a few times to get around the corner to it. The apartments are only about 50 metres from a tram stop, one block from Fitzroy Gardens,100 metres from Jolimont railway station, and about 250 metres from the MCG.. It was really walking distance from the CBD. There is also a coin operated guest laundry on the premises. Contrary to some other reviews I have read, we found the staff friendly and the place not noisy at all. Will happily stay there again and recommend it to anyone who wants a budget place to stay in Melbourne.
