“Don't come here with children or a car!”
Reviewed 26 March 2010

Nice kitchen an new LCD TV but very uninspiring rooms with plain decor. Our 'view' out the window was a concrete wall looking down onto an alley. We booked a one bedroom so our daughter could sleep in the room while we relaxed and watched TV. HARDLY a one bedroom, the room was just separated by a blind so my daughter could hear every sound we made. Very frustrating with a young child. We also had to pay $30 for secure parking next door that was NOT secure as our car (my mothers I had borrowed) was broken into, the door damaged and about $2 stolen (yes, they broke in for $2). My fault I suppose for not finding somewhere with parking but I assumed if they mentioned 'secure parking' that it was, well, secure parking! I'm coming back to Melbourne this month and definitely won't consider staying here but will find somewhere with a separate room and secure parking onsite.

I satyed there one night on business. I arrived at 4.30pm but still had to wait whilst they made up the room. The room they gave me has windows but they are about ten feet from a grey cement wall of a public carpark. Nothing else is visible but the grey cement wall and carpark railings. Car lights from the carpark go straight into the room. The blinds are transparent from my side so I assume people look straight in to the room as the material is the same both sides and the windows are clear. I also booked a Queen bed but when they had pushed two single beds together. This is usually not a problem as long as they use a queen mattress over the two single bases but they used tow single mattresses. To top it off they advertise Cable TV but you get a few foxtel channels added on without the cable TV remote control etc. Also the sound on the Foxtel channels doesn't work and is muffled. The staff at the front desk were dismissive of my complaints but as I was tired and didn't kick up a fuss and went to sleep. It was quite enough except for the occasional car in the carpark and lights sweeping the room. Would never stay there again.

My wife and I stayed for four nights in a one bedroom apartment and found the accomodation very good and clean. The bathroom and lounge/kitchen were large and comfortable. Location is very close to the heart of the city and trams. There is a large amount of food places within walking distance from 5 star to fast food.

We were travelling with our 4 teenage daughters for a dancing competition in Melbourne. The apartment was spacious and clean with an enormous bathroom (appreciated by our daughters).

The bedrooms were good but the street noise is very loud all night if you are not a heavy sleeper. The location is great as everything was in walking distance with a food hall in the Collins mall just across the street and a supermarket close by.

The only negative comment was that one of the staff wasnt overly helpful but overall I would definetly recommend this accommodation for a family.

Booked this through a brilliant Australian website as a last minute deal and got the room for a superb price ($AUS 145). The accommodation was a huge suite: a large living room with kitchen including dishwasher, oven, microwave and all utensils plus TV and DVD. There was a seperate bedroom and a bathroom with washer/dryer. It was a real loft apartment : it felt very Manhattan or Hoxton. Our window opened onto a car park and what seemed like a shanty dwelling but was an extension of the next door cafe. The hotel got a good parking discount for the next door car park. The staff were superbly friendly. The iron was missing so they got us a brand new one; the replaced a faulty kettle immediately. They were full of helpful suggestions.
The hotel was 5 mninutes from the free city circle tram, 10 minutes from Fed Sq. Superb

  • Liked — The staff
  • Disliked — The crazy wifi payment system which was both expensive and byzantine

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment on the 5th floor. The apartment was clean and furnished nicely. I liked the exposed brickwork and cement. We were extremely grateful for the airconditioning, without it we would have melted in the 44 degree heat. It was in easy walking distance of the city, Rod Laver Arena and Southgate, we even ventured as far as Docklands. The free city link trams are only a short walk away for those who do not like walking. Like any inner city accommodation there is always noise to consider, such as traffic etc, but who stays in a city apartment and expects a whisper quiet location. Our apartment was serviced every day, it was nice to come home to fresh towels and a bed that had been made by someone else. The only drawback was there was only one two seater couch in the lounge area, which for bigger groups may be a bit annoying. Overall we had a great stay and would stay there again.
