“Comfortable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2009

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment. The room was comfortable and clean. Facilities were good - electric stove, bar fridge, microwave. The double bed was comfortable. There were extra pillows and blankets in the cupboards.
Gail in reception was very friendly and helpful. Restricted parking (secure) was available - first in first served. Some people might find this a noisy hotel, we are used to noise so didnt have a problem but other people may notice the traffic noise.
We were disappointed that the towels weren't changed while we were there (4 nights). There was no face washer. Overall though, we had an enjoyable stay!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2009

One of the reason I book at The North Melbourne Serviced Apartments was that a ground floor room was available which was needed for easy access with one person having slight disability. On making my booking I was told a note would be made to ensure that I would not be moved. However on check in, I was given a room on the third floor. When I questioned this, I was told another guest had stayed longer who has a child in the near by hospital. I was told this without any checking done and am sure it was just a 'knee jerk' as once the attendant took a look at the computer, she found there was a room free on the ground floor after all.
Once in the room we found :-
The apartment was very clean
The shower sliding screen doors was falling apart, it was hard to slide and the glass was coming away for the frame.
The toilet did not flush properly (we had to flush 2 or 3 times)
The tap leaked in the bathroom basin
The bed are comfortable
Both keys we were given were bent and hard to use.
We were told another guest had taken the remote for the garage so we had to run around the back to open it manually each time we wanted to get in or out.
There was a new flatscreen TV with inbuilt DVD player.
It was quite noisy at night with the sounds of parties in near by units.
The location was handy and close to everything.

Also, if you plan to stay there is no need to pay the additional $5 per day for the off street parking, unless you really want your car off the street as there is ample street parking.

If you're happy to stay somewhere that is a bit 'crap' but clean and in a good location. Then this is a good place to stay.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment but they also have 2 bedroom apartments & studios available.The fixtures & fiitings were nice ,the kitchen & bathroom were well laid out & the bed was very comfy.The bedroom & kitchen/living area are both a decent size & there was a small balcony with a table & chairs.There was also a fold out sofa in the lounge room & this room can fit an extra folding bed ( 1 was in the room but was removed) 2 Adults & 2 kids could fit. in the 1 bedroom apartment.Check in was very easy & the lady was friendly.Lots of tourist brochures available & a box of toys can be borrowed.

Keep in mind no lifts in this building so you have to have to carry your luggage upstairs.Computer & Internet access is available on a landing on the stairs,I can't remember costs though or if it was broadband.Small amount of local metered parking on the street & they charge for undercover parking.I think it was around $10 a night.There is also an onsite laundry.
Unfortunately when we booked we didn't realise that it was a main road location with lots of traffic all day & night & that the trams run till late at night ,right out the front of the building & they start again in the early morning.The windows are not doubled glazed & the curtains/blinds are not blockout so you wake up very early with the noise & the sun streaming in.We were given a room right at the front overlooking Flemington Rd,maybe the rooms at the back would be a bit less noisy but I presume the curtains/blinds would still be the same.

Very close to the Royal Melbourne Women's hospital as well as the Children's hospital so would be handy for anyone wanting to be close to loved ones if they were in hospital.They also give a discounted hospital rate.
I think the cleaning may sometime be a bit hit & miss in some areas at times,we found an old packet of ice blocks in the freezer & a frozen bottle of water.
Overall it is a very nice roomy apartment but it was just way too noisy for us trying to get to sleep & being on holidays we didn't need to wake up when the sun came up.

Would not recommend to families with young children,couples who want a peaceful time or anyone who is not an extremely heavy sleeper.Best suited for business travellers who would be working till late at night & also need to get up early in the morning.
