The apartment is very spacious with separate bedroom, lounge room & a small dining room. It has 2 TVs, one in the lounge & one in the bedroom. There are 2 big wardrobes so plenty of space to hang...

For this amount of money, I will not recommend this hotel apartment. First of all. I don't feel safe and conformable when I stay in this place. There is no "DO NOT DISTURB" sign for any room and they never call me to ask or let me know when I want them to clean up my room. But around 3...

We had organised for Staff to stay at Aria and we also conducted a Conference in one of the Apartments. It was sensational. Staff loved their accommodation. The apartments are huge and we had plenty of room to conduct our meetings. The staff were very helpful and I loved the fact that checking in was not a long drawn out...

I stayed at the Aria Style 2 bedroom apartment with my teenage daughters so they could attend PAX last year at the convention centre. The location is quite handy. Is outside the free tram zone, but within easy access to transport (tram stop just up the street and across the road). Also handy for a quick bite to eat. Mcdonalds...

My daughter took me to Melbourne for my 50th Birthday. We stayed here at Arias. There are two bedrooms with Queen size beds. Kitchen, living room two bathrooms. And one bath. Close to all. Tram only a walk away. Café around the corner (So to speak). I really liked it here. Serviced daily. Great service.

We were traveling as a family of 5 and we wanted to stay near our relative who lives in Southbank. ARIA is affordable but our apartment was located at the building next to the hotel called The Bank Apartments. The Bank Apartments is a normal residential building so it would have been better if we were told of this before...
