Rooms and availability
In the Room
- City landmarks
The apartments are central and you have easy access to public transport.
There is no lift, so you have lug all your lugguage up stairs depending on what floor you are on. Even though we knew there were renovations going on, there was a slight smell of mould in the bathroom vanity unit. Mould was also visible.
The location was great, close to MCG and in a quiet neighborhood
The location and the low cost.
We arrived and there was a car parked in out spot, it was the receptionists car, I asked him to move it and he said he would in a hour, I said we wouldn't be there in a hour, as we were going out, he said we could do it when we returned. We were on our way out to Hens night, I asked him to move it now, and he got most upset. There is sticky tape on the stairs, the fan in the bathroom sounded like a lawnmower, the heater did not work, the clock radio didn't pick up any stations, the blinds were not fixed properly and did not cover the window, we had to fix this ourselves. The Shower had two settings, freezing and scalding, with no water pressure at all. Really unimpressed. Two beds pressed together came apart and was really uncomfortable. Should have been cheaper for what we got.
Good location. Helpful staff. Good sized room. Satisfactory kitchen facilities
Infestation of ants, which I had to control by purchasing my own spray. (why did the cleaner not do anything about them?) Fretting carpet on the stairs is a very bad look. Extremely poor paintwork - very amateur job Peeling paint and mould around the bathroom window Aircon rattled a lot. Old kitchen sponges. Poor Wifi setup - extremely slow All of this left a sense that corners were being cut to maximise profit
It is nice. But bit costly.
Limited Wi-Fi access. In the internet it was mentioned as unlimited Wi-Fi internet. But the people at reception are giving limited 3 hours per day of internet only.
For a visit to the city this is only a ten minute walk to the centre of Melbourne and fairly good price. Kitchen was fairly well equipped.
Great location but the cleanliness wasn't great and the shower was half way down the wall meaning we had to crouch down under it. Also the water was either cold or too hot, it took ages to try and get the temperature right whilst crouching under said low shower.
We stayed for three nights and found the accommodation comfortable and clean. The nearby park was lovely and it was a short walk or tram ride into the centre of Melbourne. The accommodation was reasonably priced and the location was excellent.
The carpets and decoration in the lobbies and entrance hall need replacing. Any further wear and the stair carpet could become hazardous.
Clean comfortable bed. Clean towels. Free car park. Polite, helpful staff. Quiet location within walking distance of transport and cafes and convenience store, Kitchette.
Very tired, stained furnishings.Rooms not cleaned thoroughly. Looked much better in photos.
Location was all that the facility had
It could do with a bit of work - things like old ripped carpet in the hallways etc, very poor.
Location close to the city.
Some of the furnishings were scruffy, rusted and the carpets up the stairs had holes in it. Also, the internet did not work for the 6 nights I stayed there. I asked reception on numerous occaisions to fix this issue, and it never got fixed the entire time I was there - which surprised me actually! I talked to other guests who were not able to access the internet either due to a faulty system it seemed. The apartment block had a rundown, uncared for air to it.
It is close to rod laver and mcg
Convenient, clean and reasonable rates
Showering - even following instructions, could not get water temperature right - either too hot or too cold
Location, off street parking, walking distance to the city and tennis centre.
Age, cleanliness, kitchen equipment.
Its proximity to the city
Parking was difficult, the showerscreen was damaged, television was difficult to operate.
Very handy too M.C.G. The one reason we travelled to Melbourne.
Found the apartment needs a bit of a renovation and a pretty up.
