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.

Have stayed at this accommodation several times and will continue. Spacious, comfortable and great value for money. We made use of the clean pool and sauna. Delicious breakfast however being there still half an hour before close it would have been great if more of the hot food continued coming out. Thanks for a lovely night away.

Lovely apartment style hotel in the best part of Melbourne. Close to the art gallery and theatres and not far to walk to CBD shopping. We stayed here for a few days with the family. The apartment was spacious and communal facilities including swimming pool were clean and well maintained. Service was fine - no complaints.

We had fun looking around and eating out in Melbourne during our short stay, but that cannot be said about the room. The cleaning standard should be a lot higher for the price that you charge for the room.
