Paid a large amount of money to arrive and for no one to answer the phone to compete the check in process. And when I say no one answers the phone, I mean for hours. When you’re supposed to be checking in mid afternoon. Still no call - long weekend ruined. If you want to spend your time leaving voice messages to a generic prerecorded voice mail - go ahead. My advice is to save yourself the heartache and go somewhere else.
It is a well equipped apartment. I had a one bedroom with completed kitchen including a washer and dryer. The only item that wasn't supplied was a utensil to turn over eggs in the pan. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. It is in a very residential neighbourhood and therefore quiet. It is close to transportation, grocery stores, shopping, and restaruants. It is a short distance from the CBD. There is no one onsite to ask questions but they supply an information booklet. It would have been helpful to supply a map of the area also.It was a great apartment and I recommend staying here but be aware that you are on your own to figure things out.
For location, this can't be beat. The building is on a quiet side street a short walk to busy and desirable Fitzroy, near every type of restaurant you can imagine. If you are a first-time visitor to Melbourne, this would be a good place to be. The room itself is giant, bright, and pleasant, with an incredible, long balcony. Bedding and furnishings etc all very nice. My only problem was with the check-in process which was too complicated and ultimately very frustrating. It's all done ahead of time and involves having to send pictures of your ID via email to a remote office...I wish they'd just have someone on site to handle that as well as maintenance issues that may come up (as one did), and then this place would be perfect!
This is the second (or third?) time we have stayed here. The location is perfect, the standard of rooms excellent, and the staff very helpful. The tram is easy walking distance, and there are fantastic eateries everywhere. I highly recommend!
Great location in Fitzroy, close to bars and restaurants, easy access to trams. Tucked away just enough to avoid street noise. Clean, tidy modern apartments. Would definitely stay again next time we're in Fitzroy.
