Positive Reviews

Stylish and well-equipped apartments

Guests tend to be complimentary about the standard of the Melbourne Short Stay Apartments, frequently describing the decor as stylish and the surroundings as comfortable. The choice of amenities is also appreciated, with little extra touches such as milk in the fridge noted.

Good choice of on-site facilities

While guests enjoy the home-like stay offered at these apartments, they also like the extra facilities that make this complex a little more like a hotel. The fitness facilities and the swimming pool, in particular, go down well with guests.

Conveniently located near attractions

These apartments offer a convenient location within walking distance of some of Melbourne's most popular attractions and within a short drive of others. Despite the central location, many guests specifically mention that they found their allocated apartment was quiet.

Negative Reviews

Can be difficult to find staff

Despite some of the facilities on offer making this complex resemble a hotel, it's prudent to mention that the service doesn't match up. The staff is generally helpful and friendly, but guests note that they're not always that easy to find.

Disappointing air-conditioning

Guests mention that the air-conditioning in the apartments is a little disappointing. In some of the apartments, at least, air-conditioning is only available in the lounge. Plus, guests find the units are fairly inefficient.

Extra costs make a stay pricey

These apartments don't exactly come cheap. That said, the majority of guests are happy enough with the price. What doesn't go down too well is the extra costs charged for parking and Wi-Fi. Guests tend to be of the opinion that these essential amenities should be included in the apartment cost.
