Stayed for 4 nights. 1 bedroom apartment was perfect for our needs. Kitchen practical and usable. Location amazing for easy access to city and transport. However, the bathroom is in a need of an update. The shower head is only suitable for a dwarf. The tiles and grout need to be either replaced or scrubbed clean again with bleach. The... More

This three star was okay for our family of four. We travelled to Melbourne for preliminary final so it was a whirlwind trip. Building is dated and needs a lot of maintenance. All the windows appeared rotted. Rooms big but modern decorating I can see they have added to try and improve the overall appearance. Bathroom old and dated but... More

You check in at reception and they direct you to the property where your booking is. You need to return the key back at the reception. There is no support staff at Gipps, where... More

I thought this sort of accommodation was a thing of the past. Booked on Booking.com which said reception open until nine. Note on the door says reception closes at seven pm. Need to go to the Powlett St apartments and contact an afterhours number via an intercom system. The two people in front of me were cut off three or... More

Booking online I thought that for the price the accommodation shown was reasonable enough. Arriving late at night with my elderly mother, there was no way into the Powlett St facility as there is no one attending reception after hours, No mention was made of this in the confirmation. Fortunately I happen to arrive with a number of other guests... More
