I had pre-paid the room. I arrived late - the automatic check-in did not work. There is no reception here - only in their commercials!! I called the management emergency no, which was not answered until 1 hour later. I stayed in august - the room was very cold. The worst thing was the traffic noise. The hotel is made...

Apartment was clean. Loved the l'Occitane bathroom products. However, it was really noisy in apartment No.2 - next to the road. Bedroom windows shut, blinds down - but still a lot of traffic noise that felt like it went all night. I would book again but only if I could guarantee an apartment on the other side of the building...

I highly recommend Zara apartments to anyone who requires accommodation in Melbourne's CBD. They are in a great location and their fully equipped rooms make for a comfortable stay. The service was great and checking in after hours was made easy through its electronic check in service.

Getting to and from is so easy with tram access right outside the door, the rooms were spotless and nicely presented, love the free foxtell and wifi and the on site staff (jess) was wonderfully helpful and friendly and provided for our every need from extra bedding to where was good to eat! Highly recommend to anyone looking to stay

I will now give you the full story! We booked at Zara Apartments some while ago thru Wotif for 6 nights We arrived at 1415 on 24 June - one of Melbourne's colder days! The building is not impressive. A grey prefabricated block right on busy Kings Way on a small island surrounded by roads. There is no real entrance...

This wasn't a bad experience at all. The room is honestly tiny and very strangely set up, walk in to the kitchen, bed next to the sink?! Couch and small table making access to balcony difficult. The balcony was small, covered in cigarette butts. Kitchen bench hasn't been cleaned properly. Coming into melb from ballarat, access to the apartments was...

Not as described, arrived late at night & immediately discovered the bathroom sink blocked which poured all over myself & the floor through an overflow pipe under the sink. Reverse air system didn't work to heat the room and only one sheet for the sofa bed in winter. Then found some nice long hairs in my bed. The online deal...

Advertised as a luxury apartment with a double bed and a sofa bed this was far from luxury. All were in the same room, the living area 3 x 5 metres. Ok for one person maybe two but three.....don't do it! Also the check in is computerised and was not working. Not the most ideal situation after 10pm in an...

Very Nice….friendly and accommodating staff. Great apartment and good location. Within walking distance of many takeaways and restaurants and only a quick cable car ride to the city. Would highly recommend for short or long stays.

Reviewed 28 February 2013

An overnight stay before catching the ferry the next day. A very clean and functional apartment but certainly not what I'd choose for an extended stay. A "robot" apartment - no front desk or (apparently) staff on site. Everything was managed remotely - a fairly straightforward set of instructions at the front door guide you through the process of accessing...
