Well positioned hotel good clean accommodation which I would recommend highly
Susan, gb3 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
Book till they sort the lift Situation Out
Well this is a fair review . You can see I’ve ticked what I like. In all honesty do not book this hotel as we had to wait on a number of occasions 20 minutes for the lift. The worst being 30 minutes. The staff on desk were lovely but this is a management decision who have got it badly wrong to put clients in a block when 1 lift out of order since the 5th February .
PETER, gb4 night trip
Very good 8.0
Melbourne short stay in Dec
The serviced apartment is pleasant and centrally located. it is in the Melbourne CBD area, that means we have building sites surrounding our apartment (same for other CBD hotels). Its extremely convenient for taking the trams and skybus if you need it since it is close to the Southern Cross station.

Great stay
Good location within a few minutes walk from tram line and local supermarkets. We stayed on the 43rd floor with amazing views of the city. The apartment itself was clean, spacious and comfortable.

Exceptional 10.0
Handy location and good value
The apartments are handily placed less than 5 minutes walk from Southern Cross station and are on the upper floor of mostly residential accommodation. The apartment is very new and so was spotless with everything I needed for 3 nights. The onsite gym and swimming pool were a nice bonus. There's great places to eat all around and a large supermarket next to the station. A great stay.

New and well furnished apartment
The apartment was new and well furnished with all the facilities either one person or a couple would need. Note: there is no daily service. The apartment block is opposite the SkyBus terminal and there is a Coles nearby as well as a Woolies. The free trams make getting around very easy. We very much enjoyed our stay there.

Very good 8.0
good rooms, but terrible airconditioner
good size rooms in great location. Arrived on hot day, room was very warm and took aircon 24 hours to cool room down, so i wouldn't stay sgain in summer.
anthony, gb2 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Good location. Reasonable value. Stay in winter.
I was in tower two a residence tower 45 stories high . . . with only three lifts, one of which services the top floors as priority throughout much of my stay. That means it takes a long time (and at the end of the work day) queues to get a lift. The pool is wholly indoor. There is no outdoor area for relaxation. The gym, however, is well-equipped. The air-conditioning system cools only the main room directly. The bedroom stays very warm, a disappointment in the high heat of summer. The internet drops in and out though once you find which of the three or four routers links best to your room (the front desk suggested keep trying until you find one that works), then it is quite reasonable. Very well located for trains and trams.

Very good 8.0
Everything great with the apartment which was very clean and had everything we needed, close to Coles supermarket and mall and free tram to get around. The only thing that spoilt it was the noise ( nightclub ) which went on until 4am on Friday and Saturday night, Ian a light sleeper but could still hear it with earplugs in!! Apart from this we had a great stay
