These apartments in East Melbourne are well appointed and quiet, being off the main street, yet a 3 minute walk to the tram stop. I stayed here 3 nights and it felt like home. Off-street parking for $10 per night. Only needed this one night as I got to Melbourne too late to ditch the hire car. 6 pm close...

Had to go to Melbourne for a hospital visit and this place was within walking distance so decided to stay there. Big mistake as the room was dirty and smelly. Should have stayed in the city. If you have pets it might be ok as it is pet friendly but if you have allergies then is definitely a no go.

Great value, easy walk to MCG, Rod Laver and transport. Rooms are clean and spacious. Plenty of places to eat nearby if you don't want to cook. Off street parking for extra fee. Concierge is extremely helpfull. Only thing to consider is the stairs if you have a lot of luggage. We will use these apartments for all future trips...

We stayed at this place last week. It is a good place to stay, close to CBD, good spaced apartment and it is dog friendly. Very friendly and helpful staff. You will have to pay extra for the dog and secured parking. Recommended.

Lovely comfortable two room apartmen with kitchent. Very well priced and located just outside the CBD. Tram to Collins St 200m away or 300m to train to Southern Cross or Flinders St. stations. Very quiet unlike the smaller hotels in the CBD, with double the space and no early morning cleaning/delivery trucks, traffic, etc. Staff very helpful and friendly. Secure...

Very good price and friendly concierge. It was an early morning wake up for this light sleeper though, with traffic noise being disturbing at 6am on a Saturday, even with the windows closed. Great blockout curtains, and clean bathroom. Shower was a bit hot and cold. Probably wont stay again purely because of being able to hear everything going on...

These renovated apartments are close to the city. (10 minutes walk to spring street) or a short cab or tram ride. Right near fitzroy Gardens, so great for a walk or run. The rooms are basic, clean and pretty comfortable, nothing flash, but OK for the price. Drawbacks - the rooms are not very sound proof and you get a...

Four of us stayed here for one night and so we booked a double room and a room with two singles. On arrival we were given two doubles, which wasn't a problem as there was a sofa bed in the lounge of each. However, I wouldn't suggest using the sofa bed as you could feel the bar and springs in...
