7.8 Good
My room was above the Kingsway turnoff. I did not ask for a move, in hindsight I should have. The noise was extremely bad. Informed staff on my departure. I was in the West wing.
9.5 Wonderful
Really enjoyed staying at these apartments. Clean rooms on the small side but well set out, Comfortable beds. Kitchen didn’t have enough items for a family (ie plates, cups etc). Staff friendly and helpful. They were able to offer upgraded room on arrival and a later checkout. Parking was available for a fee, which was a bit expensive. Made use of pool, on small side but clean and just warm enough. Overall great stay.
10.0 Wonderful
great hotel
9.7 Wonderful
positioned so close to south melbourne - easy walking distance. but you wouldn't guess it from the taxi drop off! - a fabulous hotel in urban wasteland immediately around it. Beautiful lobby, great rooms - really high! And so quiet - so deliciously quiet - for a great night's sleep.
