“Fantastic value for money”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Have stayed here numerous times and would highly recommend it to all. Have stayed with just my husband and have also stayed with one and both my children at different times. The two bedroom apartments are so spacious. The one bedroom apartment which sleep 3 are less spacious but still plenty big enough for two or three people. The staff are so friendly and highly efficient and nothing is too much trouble for them.

Great location but it was noisy. I booked for a 2 twin 1 queensize 2 bedroom apartment and ended up having 2 queensize 2 bedroom apartment, so my son ended up having to sleep on the couch because we were in a hurry and didn't have time to make any changes when we arrived and he had a terrible sleep on the couch because it was lop sided. I woke up a few times through the nite because i was freezing and there were no extra blankets!! The bathroom was small and dirty. The reception area needed a good vacuum. I thought it was way over priced and I'll never stay there again.

Location is great but the walls are very thin and everything can be heard. I suggest ear plugs for anyone planning to stay here. Staff were ok. A bit too casual an attitude so perhaps they could work on their professionalism. Otherwise would probably stay here again if o was planning on not spending too much time in the room as the location is very handy.

We stayed here for 5 nights in end of July-Aug 2013. We managed to get a good deal through the visa promotions, and only paid $700 for 5 nights (vs room rack rate advertised at $900 for the same period.

The 1-br was spacious enough for two people, and maybe 3 if the 3rd person was small enough to fit into the sofa. The bedroom was quite small, but adequate in size, and there was plenty of wardrobe space. There was a 2 seater sofa, an armchair and a tv with limited foxtel channels. The kitchen was small, but still adequately equipped. There is a microwave/oven, kettle, a two burner induction stove and complete utensils for those who want to cook in the room.

The toilet was quite strange though - there was half a pane of glass in the bathtub, which didn't stop the water from the shower getting into the floor. There should have been a shower curtain instead to keep the water from splashing into the floor.

There is also a washer/dryer in the room - you probably need to ask the desk staff to show you how to work this as it took me a while to make the washing machine work.

The desk staff were all very helpful - whatever time, day or night.

The location itself was very good. The free shuttle was less than 100m away from the hotel, and the free tram was just one street back from the hotel (about 100-150m). It's about a 1.5 km walk back from the Federation square, which was easy enough considering you're walking through the CBD and enjoying the views at the same time. There is a 7-11 just two doors down from the hotel entrance, so it was very convenient as well to buy necessities even in the middle of the night.

Would definitely stay here again when we go back to visit Melbourne.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near the elevators. The 7th floor was quite good.

If you stay here, just be prepared to hear everything that happens in the adjoining room or the corridor. There seems to be little insulation between the rooms. We had a party going on in the room next door. The bathrooms are very small compared to the overall size of the apartments. However, the apartments are comfortable and staff are very helpful.

Recently stayed for three nights while attending a work conference in Melbourne. The location was within walking distance to everything in the city. A nice quick walk to the MCG. I arrived around 12ish and was fortunate enough to be allowed to check in early. All staff members I dealt with were pleasant. The room was spacious, clean and serviced daily. It had a good kitchen with a convection microwave and fridge. There was even a washing machine with washing powder included. My only complaint would be how gross the shower was. The grout is missing around the drain and tiles. Overall I had a nice stay though.

Wished we stayed longer than 1 night. Room was clean with a comfy bed, we overlooked the Melbourne Club backyard which was interesting as well as a nice view. 10min walk to the MCG and close to all that is Melbourne city. The staff were friendly and efficient.
