Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very nice apartment, good location close to restaurants and trams but out of the hussle. Clean apartment, with washing facilities, microwave and Nespresso. Tv was the only downside of the room. Facilities were good with a bar and restaurant Front desk staff were very helpful and efficient, best I have experienced for a while. Good solid choice

Great location and easy walking distance to CBD attractions, shopping, theatres and all transport. The hotel is well maintained with friendly and welcoming staff. Early check in was nice but not really expected so a big thank you to the staff that arranged it. The room nicely furnished and comfortably furnished with a lounge dining area, small fully equipped kitchen, nice sized bedroom and seperate bathroom and laundry area. Once the doors and curtains were closed at night the rooms were quiet and bedroom dark making it easy for a good nights sleep. The restaurant is open for breakfast only serving a buffet with hot and cold foods and eggs done your way on request. The staff there very welcoming and alsways attending the buffet to ensure it remained fresh and inviting and a thank you for the great long black coffee each day. Seems a bit of disconnect with housekppeing as I asked for servie on request (daily service not needed for 1 person who was out most of the time). I always asked for the service the day before I wanted it and it was a bit hit and miss, happening sometimes and not others but then serviced when not requested. However it was always cleaned to a high standard and nice to walk back into the serviced room. Thank you to all the staff especially James, Tim, Van, Sas. August, Amy and Sandy for making my 3.5 week stay very pleasant and enjoyable.

Great hotel in a great location only a few minutes walk to the centre of the city. The staff are friendly and professional and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The room was spotless and well appointed and nice to be able to enjoy the views from the balcony too.
