Great location. Friendly staff. We were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment which was much appreciated as I was there with my mum. Everything clean and tidy. The bathroom could do with a facelift,but other than that it was a great room. Very close to the Arts centre where we were seeing a show, walking distance from Flinders street station,...

The hotel is in perfect location.most of the thing are nearby. The room are great. It will have been great if they have the bigger size tv. The smaller tv makes the look room old fashioned. Keep it up

Great location, very spacious rooms, Pool and gym were great. Only slight disappointment was the carpets were stained and looked filthy. Staff were wonderful and allowed us a late check out and to leave the car while we looked around the city which was appreciated. Would recommend these apartments.

You will probably find cheaper serviced apartments around, but this one stands out thanks to the Fantastic Staff. Apartment is pretty basic and was missing essential things like plugs and scissors but it was ok. Not sure it was worth what we paid. Overall we were happy with our stay because of the great staff, not only at front desk...

Great location right opposite Euroka building with nice views. Beautiful hotel with modern rooms. Two bedroom apartment had everything you needed. Staff very friendly and willing to help. Buffet breakfast was a little boring though - not a lot of variety on menu.
