What a wonderful apartment. We booked a 1 bed apt but was upgraded to 3bed wonderful view of melb and docklands. It had everything we needed with all facilities working. Thank you for a wonderful time akom.

The staff and location where great. Staff where lovely and helpful and went out of way to help but the appratment wasn't what I was expecting. It was dirty with marks on carpet, bed in main bedroom was broken and toilet was blocked. Great location but not up to the rating they put themselves as. They may have better appratments...

The room we booked and paid for was not as described. The room was clean but very cramped For the price paid I would not consider it value for money When we raised the issue with management they offered us free parking (value $30 ) thanks for nothing

After some initial trouble with car parking (the first then second spot we were given we so small we couldn't physically get out of the car once parked), we found the apartment to be a good size with a great view. It was looking a little tired and unloved in spots such as half-repaired holes in bathroom from previous towel...

Booking an AKOM apartment appears to be a bit of a lottery as to where you stay. We stayed at Palladio Tower, one of about six apartment blocks that have available rooms managed by this organisation. Prices were reasonable for our one bedroom apartment. Bit tired, but most facilities were supplied. Not sure I could spend more than a couple...

It is with great dismay that I must convey my most sincere disappointment with the quality of my family’s stay in apartment No. 1507 at 26 Rakaia Way. Throughout their nine-night stay at apartment 1507 I received a litany of complaints from my family, which I shall now list here: First, for the entire duration of my family’s stay, the...

We booked this accomodation for a trip to the tennis and weren't disappointed. It's proximity to transport including the famous trams was excellent but still not too busy. The bars and restaurants in the docklands area gave us great options! The accomodation itself was clean and comfortable, what you want after a long day exploring the city!

Despite being wary of this apartment due to other reviews, we had a great experience here. We arrived quite early at the airport, and caught the Skybus ($18 a head) to Southern Cross Station. From there, our ticket included free hotel transfer which took us the extra 10 mins towards our destination. Staying for the Australian Open, we found staff...

Great views over the harbor, nice comfortable apartments... Excellent pool and gym facilities.. Reasonably priced for what you get, although some apartments could do with a fresh coat of paint. The staff are friendly and helpful.
