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.

It is true that the pictures are taken in such a way that one may be a little disappointed but the functionality and location make up for it. Our apartment was ultra clean, nothing was missing inside, super connected and with very good quality sittings, great bed and very quiet. The location is a good as it gets in Melbourne: within 2 minutes you have a dry cleaner, boutiques (including an Aesop store), bakeries, excellent Japanese restaurants, the subway and hairdressers, spa etc.. Absolutely loved it. The owners are super nice and really pro-active with whatever you might need. Will absolutely go back without even checking other places.

Although this was not our preferred location on this occasion we feel lucky that nothing else was available on this date. Our stay exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived ad were greeted by our host, Richard who even offered to help us carry our bags to our room. The room was clean, and styled in a simple and modern fashion. A small but functional kitchen with a full sized fridge, the coffee machine was a nice touch! Netflix was a real hit with the kids as was samsung tablet with the kids. Being located beside the train station made getting to and from the CBD with kids a simple task. Only down side was a group was staying above us who were a bit noisy but I don't suppose that could really be helped. It was the little things that we really liked in this place, the helpful staff, the quirky artworks and styling, and the extra touches that show they have gone the extra mile. Would stay again, thanks for having us

Just here for one night to attend a concert. The apartments are in an excellent location with plenty of public transport at hand, just around the corner from railway station and tram stop. Free wifi and a car parking space provided. Apartment itself is perhaps a little dated decor wise but clean and comfortable never the less. Large apartment and good value for money. Reception staff very pleasant, helpful and efficient. Would stay here again if the need arose.

We were 3 adults in an apartment with a queen bed plus 2 singles, staying 3 days in September. This place ticks a lot of boxes for comfort, cleanliness, location, facilities and helpful staff. The apartment included a bar fridge, very good oven, microwave, kettle and toaster with adequate crockery, cutlery and accessories. The beds were good quality as was the linen. The TV and DVD were newish and the seating was fine. The room was very clean but hadn't been refreshed or modernised for some time. But there is (or should be) a limit to what a traveler is entitled to expect in this price range and in such a cutthroat industry. If you want 5 star luxe on the cheap then you're looking in the wrong place. There is, however, a price to pay for great access to the city and many other places. As others have mentioned, the apartments back onto South Yarra train station and are a very short walk from Toorak Road. Expect noise. There is some attempt at soundproofing the windows, which worked well for our good sleepers, but if you're not a sound sleeper then you might struggle a bit. If you're worried, ask for a room in the "A" wing, which is further away from the station (we were in the "B" wing). Car parking is limited but great if you can get it. Overall, I'd rate it as excellent accommodation and good value for the money.

The Darling apts are located in a prime position. Park the car (free parking at apts) and use public transport which is literally a 2 min walk to the station & tram stop or walk into city. Apt was a little tried and could do with an upgrade but It has everything you need for your stay. Bathroom with bath and a kitchen with basics for a cooked meal in. Also has a laundry onsite if you need it.

We stayed as a family of four over four nights in a 2 bed apartment. Whilst the apartment might be classed by some as a little dated - everything was spotless on arrival. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to be able to cook and fend for ourselves A small issue with TV reception was very promptly attended to by the wonderful lady on reception. Proximity to Toorak Road, Chapel Street makes the apartments seriously worth considering. South Yarra train station 100m away, tram to city 50m, licensed restaurants, take-aways, supermarkets, convenience stores selling absolutely everything there at your fingertips. Make sure you ask for parking under the building as it is limited. It is not secure but we didn't have any problems. It is a little tight for a four wheel drive. If you get stuck there is a public space car park opposite (user pays) Will definitely stay again when in Melbourne. Great value for money.

The Darling Apartments I found to be clean, very comfortable and in a great location. The bed was firm with some very soft sheets that smelt really fresh. The apartment which was four rooms, bedroom, kitchenette, living room and bathroom, was spacious and comfortable. The free wifi worked well and although the train station was next door the double glazing kept out most of the noise.

The apartment was neat and clean. Very friendly reception staff. Very quick reply to emails. They are aware it can be a noisy area due to clubs restaurants, and there is double glazing and window covers to help with this. The bathroom is a little tired but was very clean. Would stay here again if needed this area.

Great location on toorak road, choose from one or two bedroom apartments, all with a kitchenette and utensils. Comfortable and right behind the train station, but don't worry you can't hear the train from your room! It even had a car space provided.
