We had to visit Melbourne urgently due to sons medical emegency at "The Alfred Hospital" and choose to stay at Crest on Barkly Hotel. Great choice due to the following: 1. Great location. Walking distance to catch train into Melbourne and hospital a tram stop along - so perfect. Tram ride into Melbourne Central took about 25 mins. 2. Walking...

2 night stay in 2 bedroom apartment. Apartment basic but clean. Beds comfortable but aircon in main bedroom kept shutting down. Traffic was very noisy even with windows closed. Rates were very reasonable so you get what you payed for... Will not stay there again....

had a fine stay, friendly staff, good location, ok walking to the beach and trams. Best feature was the little outside cafe with nice coffee, wine and cake and a really friendly waiter (also for our two children).

The day started off well enough and check in went smoothly. But that's where the good times ended sadly. The room was clean enough, but the shower was very dark and claustrophobic. We were put into room 2415, which was an apartment of sorts. We noticed it was two storeys and we were on the bottom. People checked in and...

Stayed here with family, 2 separate rooms. Has been recently repainted and rooms upgraded. Very clean and tidy. air conditioned and that was good. One room was quite large, other a bit smaller but okay for short stay. Service was good. Laundry was great staff helpful and friendly.

We rented apartment 252. On the whole the apartment was fine, but they really need to do something about sound proofing and double glazing the windows. The noise can be deafening at times (late night ciggies and drinking on the balconies) In the first bedroom, you could hear every conversation being had by those on the balconies around the courtyard....

First night of 4 very disappointing. Kept of all night due to sounds coming from above apartments and neighboring properties. They glazing is old and thin, offers no sound deadening. The apartment is situated in a different building than is advertised. There are no emergency plans in the apartment. We returned at 5pm with the apartment not serviced, stating we...
