I stayed for one night
... the good - location and free parking. Friendly staff on check in. good maps and local information in the rooms. Room was well priced ($139) and could sleep 4.
... the bad - an unlocked courtyard door which I only discovered when settling to bed after being out for a while. Unflushed toilet paper upon my arrival and no UHT milk in fridge, although teabags etc provided.
... the ugly - a long, black hair resting in between the sheets when I turned the covers back. Carpet is worn and well past it's prime.

Would I stay again ... probably not as there's lots of other accommodation options close by

Lovely place if you love big black rats. On arrival we swept the apartment and finished with a pile of dust and fluff. Corridors are musty and filthy. Quilt had stains on it and a sheet for a cover. One lampshade fell apart when we tried to switch on and both covered in dust. Kitchen appliances are connected to a powerboard which sparks and shorts out when two or more appliances are in use. Service is vague. Balcony is bare concrete and dirty. Paint peeling in places. Dirty ceiling in bathroom.
Could be a nice place to stay if presentation, cleanliness and service was vastly improved but once will be enough for us.

Stayed here for 12 nights as nowhere else available, breakfast embarrassing- 2 slices of cheap white bread, 2 boxes of cereal, tiny carton of milk, instant coffee for 4 adults and a toddler. We were in a refurbed apartment, it was so dark with door frames half glossed and a coffee table that's dangerous for children. The 'cot' provided is a travel cot with no proper mattress and an old sheet folded up for bed linen. When I advised the owner that children shouldn't sleep in cots without a proper mattress for longer than 2 nights she just brushed me off saying, no on else has asked and that's just what we do. The air conditioning didn't work for the first week and is only in the main living area, not in the bedrooms so was stinking hot to sleep. On arrival, no washing machine as described and took a couple of days harassing for one to arrive. All other recent comments about bed linen and outside agree with. The only positive is the location is right by a tram stop and you can walk to everywhere if you want.
Definitely would not recommend, especially if you have children. What a waste of $195 per night.

Please, owners/managers of this property; take note of these reviews! I was hoping that the previous reviews were wrong as a friend had already booked us in when I read the bad reviews. The entire place is so shabby and worn. The breakfast was embarrassing..instant powdered coffee, white bread wrapped in individual servings with plastic wrap, no juice, no fruit. Public areas looked like the former housing commission that it probably was. All fixtures appeared to be at least 20 years old and were cheap fittings to begin with. Toiletries smelled bad and the wafer-sized soap was disgusting. We received 4 bath towels, 1 hand towel and 1 face cloth for 4 people. The only good thing was that the threadbare linens on the bed were clean and bug-free. Just glad we only stayed one night. So many other serviced apartments in Melbourne that cost the same but are so much nicer.
