“Comfortable Clean and a good Base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

We needed an affordable base for everything we had planned while we were in Melbourne and we got much more than we were expecting, big enough kitchen, laundry, parking and most importantly good WIFI. It was great. Thanks Apartsment Ink.

Small TV In lounge and right up on near ceiling height -bird droppings on the balcony -had to access lift by taking your luggage down 7 steep stairs though 2 security doors and repeat to get out to garage -so not a direct access lift from the car park -furniture chipped, no frying pan in room, cheap tissue and toilet paper -acrylic thin blanket on bed and polyester bedspread - I got a sleeping bag from my car and slept in that.
Pavement outside apartments has a lot of paper litter from Aldi next door .
The one positive was that reception let me put my luggage in room before 2 pm as I was interstate visiting family member in hospital.

Hi Dorothy C

First of all, thank you for taking the time to review Apartments Ink. I am sorry to hear that your experience with us was quite negative, and I do sincerely apologise for the few issues that you encountered. Secondly, had I or any of our staff been informed of the problems you had with the room or property, we would have gone the extra mile to ensure you were pleased.

The issues you raised could have been easily remedied by use of our second lift for car park to room access, and our housekeeping team are always on hand to replace any missing items in rooms. As for the bedding, we have additional bedding and reverse cycle air-conditioning for those colder nights. The Apartments Ink team and I hope to get the chance to accommodate yourself again Dorothy, and make your next stay more fulfilling.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (2 Adults/2 kids). The apartments are well located, just a short tram ride into the city or a short 20 min walk to St Kilda Beach. Plenty of restaurants located in the area and an Aldi supermarket with a bottleshop and good hours located under the apartments The room was spacious and had all the facilities we wanted. Heating was excellent (stayed mid winter), beds comfortable, kitchen facilities great - even a dishwasher!. Bathroom was well appointed and has washing machine & dryer. Foxtel with all channels was a bonus. parking is very secure and well priced at $10/day. Staff were all courteous and helpful. have no hesitation in recommending to friends.

We stayed at Apartments Ink for 2 nights travelling as a couple, in a single bedroom apartment.

The apartment was quite spacious with a small lounge room, a desk, and a kitchenette. I would recommend a place like this for a longer stay because we really didn't need to use the extra space.
However it was very comfortable.

The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was great - it was modern and very clean.

However I would recommend a car, St Kilda is a little way out of the CBD. Car parking is offered at $10 a night which is reasonable.
Overall I would recommend staying here particularly for a longer stay- for shorter stays it might be better to stay in the CBD.

Hi amd_05

Thank you for your wholesome review! I am more than happy to hear that the room met all of your needs. Our One Bedroom Apartments can cater for long stays and are great for guests who want self contained facilities. Please feel free to stay longer next time you visit St Kilda, we would be more than happy to accommodate you both.

Yours sincerely

We stayed in a deluxe 2br apartment with three kids. We accidentally double booked. The management called to check ahead of time and sorted things out. When we arrive our room rate was double what we expected. The woman at reception was helpful and escalated to the manager to sort things out quickly professionally, without fuss.

Worked well for our clan. Well appointed with parking. Would not suit someone wanting to be in the centre of St Kilda life but suited us down to the ground.

Very nice stylish apartment. Nice large bathroom with european laundry includeed. Good layout
with separate bedroom (kingsize bed). We had a nice meal at the Post Office Hotel down the road and walked out the pier for coffee and cake, where there are lovely views of the city skyline .
We will come back to stay and see more of the area.

Every time I stay at this hotel it is excellent. Very clean, friendly staff, good sized apartments. Apartments are well equipped and staff are eager to help if you need anything. I was able to self cater most meals to keep cost of eating out down. The Hide and Cheek cafe up the road is great. Really nice food and staff , reasonably priced too. Location is convenient to St Kilda highlights and transport to city. Convenient to have Aldi just below.
