Tiny tiny bathroom and moldy. Yes its cheap but don't expect anything more. Staff lovely though. Don't take room 15 or you will hear guest going...

Stayed here recently with a friend. As we were only looking for a cheap couple of nights away close to the cbd this accommodation fit the bill. Small room with a very out of date bathroom, kitchenette had microwave and kettle but 7/11 close by for coffee :) The free wifi is very poor and the tv only had the...

We chose these apartments because of location & car parking availability. Location is second to none for Price & Distance from MCG, Tennis Centre, Trams, Trains, etc... The apartment consisted of a double bed & a single bed, room was very small (lucky I didn't have my 6'6 husband with us - he wouldn't fit in the bathroom!). The are...

We stayed there for 5 night and we really enjoyed our visit. It was really close to everything and the area was so lovely. The area was voted for the best suburns in Melbourne and it really was. There is some restaurants and cafes really near. 7-eleven is the only market close by. Tram stop was maybe 2min walk away....

Located in East Melbourne, tram stop Jolimont Station (no 75 or 48), with a short walk to apartment. Just a couple of stops out of the free travel zone. Great location, quiet leafy streets. The apartment had a double bed and a single, small table and chairs, fridge, microwave, separate bathroom including a bath and TV. Internet was also available....

Stayed here for ten days with my daughter and granddaughter, and although the place is old and in need of a bit of a spruce up it served our needs very well. The receptionist Michelle was very helpfull, the room was very close to the city, we walked everywhere and got to enjoy Melbourne and a very reasonable price

I stayed here during November 2016 and again for a few days in January 2017. Thoroughly enjoyed it as it had everything I needed (internet, laundry, basic room facilities). It's in a terrific location - close to the city/MCG and Richmond shops on Bridge Rd. The tram stop (numbers 75/48) and jolimont train station are 2-3 minutes walking distance. Both...

This is a great location if you are attending an event at the MCG. Very easy walk to MCG and a few restaurants in the immediate area. Room OK. Nothing fancy. It was clean. Not the sort of room I would want to spend much time relaxing in. Glad we were just there to sleep Parking is non-existent. There are...

I stayed here for 2 nights during the Australian Tennis Open. The location was fantastic - very close to Rod laver arena. Say a 10 minute walk. In addition, close to eateries and a 7-11 store. A walk to the city will take 25 minutes.
