Positive Reviews

Superb location

Many guests appreciate the easy access to Melbourne's central business district, as well as to the Great Ocean Road, which features activities such as koala watching, parachuting and surfing. Others add that the nearby Melbourne Cricket Ground, built in 1853, is considered by many as the birthplace of cricket, and note that tours to vineyards in the famous Yarra Valley can be easily arranged from the front desk.

Well-equipped kitchens

Several guests say that the kitchens have plenty of cookware, dishware and utensils, and note that the dishwashers and fridges have a large capacity. Others add that the countertops are large, the sinks are deep, and there is ample space to prepare a feast for a large family.

Helpful and friendly service

Many guests appreciate that there is a manager on duty round-the-clock, and say that housekeeping is regular and thorough. Others add that the check-in process is smooth, the front desk staff is courteous, and the manager's advice about local restaurants and transportation options is accurate and helpful.

Negative Reviews

Noisy and crowded

Some guests comment that the sound of trams and buses on the adjacent street is clearly audible inside the apartments, and say that the building's common lounge area is crowded during the evenings, and even late at night. Others add that the barbecue area is often busy, and dislike that prior booking is required to reserve space.

Slow and intermittent Internet connection

A handful of guests dislike that the Internet connection is not high-speed, and note that the connection often drops. Others add that there is no Wi-Fi in the common areas, and the router is often offline.

Limited parking

Some guests mention that available parking space is limited, and prior reservation is required. Others add that alternative spaces are quite far from the property.
