Wow! We were pleasantly surprised by this place. We weren't expecting much given the comments on the proximity to the train tracks and the low price.
150m to Chapel Street, Arthur Street leads straight out to Jam Factory. Fantastic location.
The apartment was a good size and all amenities were provided; dishwashing detergent, fruit peeler, everything and anything you expect to find in a kitchen is provided. Queen (could have been King) bed in the bedroom (with an oil heater) and a sofa bed in the living (good for 2 pax). 4 additional pillows and 2 additional blankets were provided. The kitchen came with a fridge, oven, microwave and hob.
The cooling/heating unit in the living worked like a charm, maintaining the set temperature at all times.
The complimentary parking. Some reviewers commented that it was not sheltered and was exposed to street traffic. I do not know which planet they come from!!! Most other apartments in South Yarra either have limited parking bays or they did not come free.
There's a coin-operated washing machine and dryer provided. AUD3.00 per use but no detergent provided.
The not so good:
Reception was off-site but I'm OK with this as it was made known to me in the booking portal and the reception is just a short stroll (about 600m) away.
Highly recommended and we will be staying here the next time we visit.
