Positive Reviews

Facilities and rooms were clean and modern

Travellers commented that the sleek apartments were well-appointed with contemporary furniture and modern design elements plus well-equipped kitchens that had everything they needed to prepare meals. Additionally, guests felt the rooms were well cleaned and tidy. Moreover, reviewers were bowled over by the fine city centre and river panoramas on offer from many rooms. Those who tried the top floor gym said the facilities were good, adding that the city views were once again excellent.

Good Wi-Fi and customer service

Friendly, helpful and welcoming were just some of the terms visitors used to describe employees, who were available around-the-clock at the front desk. Many guests experienced a smooth check-in too. There was also praise for the swift and reliable Wi-Fi.

Top location

Reviewers loved being a short walk from several popular attractions like casinos plus the aquarium and convention centre. The property also put them near the river and close to dozens of dining spots and nightlife options. Another bonus was the proximity of tram and bus stops plus Southern Cross Station for mainline trains and hassle-free links to the airport.

Negative Reviews

Occasional noise issues

Rooms facing nearby railway lines were reportedly exposed to occasional nuisance noise caused by passing trains. There were also reports of street noise being audible as well as the sound of whistling winds during spells of inclement weather, particularly on the upper floors.

Apartments had some drawbacks

Critics commented that the beds and bathrooms were both on the small side in certain apartments. Others were disappointed that they weren’t supplied with many rubbish bins.

Climate control grumbles

There were claims that the bedrooms sometimes got a little stuffy as the air-conditioning was focussed on the living area. Several reviewers noted their air-conditioning was noisy.
