I stayed here in April 2011 for about 4 nights. The apartment was very tiny and smelt badly of smoke. It was very noisy and we could hear traffic and pedestrians all night. It's not far from pubs and seemed to have drunks walking past yelling out randomly through the night.
On the plus side it was cheap and a very short walk to St Kilda cafe strip, the beach and Luna Park.
It might be suitable for adults traveling on a budget, but not suitable for families.
just spent the weekend in melbourne for my daughters 18th and this place made my trip fuss free ...well positioned, clean, well equipped apartment and lovely staff.will definately stay there again.tram across the road , best restaurants on your doorstep, the very best cakes and coffee on acland street ...again just 2 minute walk from your room.
The hotel was shabby and in need of TLC. The kitchen facilities were less than basic :/ We stayed there for 3 nights during the October break and we were less than impressed with the facilities. It should really only be a 1 star apartment. Would not recommend to anybody and we will definitely never be going back there.
The free wifi was ridiculously slow and the tv reception was lamatable.
The one positive was location
we can not find your name from our booking record, and also no sydney family stayed over 3 nights on October, if you think you reviewed the right place, please contact us with your booking ID.
A perfect place to stay. Comfortable and great location - walking distance to dynamic Acland St and surrounds and to St Kilda Beach. A whisker away from Brighton and the city of Melbourne. Agreeable and helpful hosts. We will be back.
Our first stay at Barkly apartment. One bedroom on first floor. We arrive dlate and messed up the cose; they appeared and were very helpful.
Free internet - but we used our own.
free secure parking - and direct opposite supermarket (open till midnnight) and all the other many shops around St Kilda at your door.
from here easy ride on trams to the city - we did not as we had a car for business to many locations in melbourne and it was easy to drive out and back - great location. and could always just go for walk and wander along the waterfront. Highly recommended for those who want cpomfort away from the usual hotels. This one is old style but very comfortable - but may be noisy on the front - we were around the back. Slept very well.
