What a fabulous location to stay in Melbourne. Beside the Crown Casino and diagonally opposite Sealife Aquarium. A short stroll to Flinders Street Station and city centre. Along (and under the apartment) the esplanade offers so many places to eat. So many positives to this accommodation. Facing the Yarra, every bedroom has amazing river views. There really isn't a 'best'...

Stayed at Freshwater place with the family when I was in Melbourne for work. 2 adults, two young children <5 and 1 baby. We hired a 3bd apartment. Online reservation was easy. They pre-empted our need for at least one cot and that was included without charge. Apartment was over 3 levels and fortunately both our mobile kids could manage...

Gem Apartments are cool, sophisticated, clean apartments that in my opinion are top notch ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ after a slight issue with a booking in another hotel during an Australian family wedding I was attending, a swift phone call and we were allocated an apartment that was on the 31st floor with incredible views of the city.

We stayed at Apartment 139, 99 Whiteman Street, which I understand is part of the Gem Apartment group. This apartment was unsatisfactory both with regard to cleanliness and state of repair. Both bathrooms were badly affected by mould. The venetian blinds were damaged and there were unattractive stains on the walls. It was hard to sleep because the weather was...

I thought my apartment was on 63 Whiteman St Melbourne when I booked but I was actually given an apartment located on the 17th floor or 180 City Road, Southbank (SouthbankONE Apartments). Disappointment was the balcony which was very small with no outdoor chairs to sit and enjoy the view. The apartment was clean and comfortable the best part was...

The apartment location was excellent! The apartment itself was really good with excellent amenities in the apartment and the security was great with free onsite parking. Wifi was also free as well as Foxtel. The only downfall was the cleanliness, which was really disappointing given that it is such an excellent apartment in every other way. The ensuite had a...
