Stayed in Palladio tower (managed through Sebel reception nearby) three bed/2 bath. Stunning views from 11th floor. Apartment itself getting ratty around the edges from what looks like it started out as a fairly basic fit out in the beginning. E.g. All markings on kitchen appliance (stove/oven) controls have rubbed off and shower floors do not hold the water in....

Very tired apartments with. We recently stayed in the boyd on the 8th floor in a 3 bedroom. Some of the heater dont work only 1 aircon in the main living area that was noisy it would be unpleasant to stay during the summer with no aircons in bedrooms, not wort the money or star rating. Stay elsewhere

We stayed in the Nolan building on the 14th floor in a 2br apartment. It had great views and was very spacious but needed a bit of maintenance with marks on walls and doors, loose lock in the front door, stained grout in the shower, and broken hooks in the bathroom. Outdoor Swimming pool area is lovely but too cold...

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights in the Nolan building. It was so great to come back to the apartment after a busy day of sightseeing and outings. It felt like coming home as opposed to "going back to a hotel". The views were amazing, the apartment was fully equipped, the couches were comfortable, and the apartments were...

The apartment was comfortable. As in Melbourne with a mate for a conference. We had a room and bathroom each ensuring our own space. Docklands is close to everything and still separate. I was there during the week so not sure if it get rowdy on the weekends but we found it quiet and relaxing after long days of learning.

Rooms are spacious, very cheap and low end furnishing, heavy Indian foods smell in the hallway, elevator and public areas. Heater is not functioning, bathroom fixture is broken. Will not stay again. Only 3 star maximum to AAA standard, this place makes me thinking of red roof inn or equivalent back in the US.
