I booked through Agoda, who sent me to a different appartment entirely. I then had trouble finding this appartment as the sign out the front has a different name. The man at reception was helpful and although I hadn't been sent a booking/confirmation email by the hotel themselves, we were able to work out a way for me to 'prove' my booking and get myself and my 16 month old in.
A few things in the room weren't 100%, the toilet roll holder was broken and there was dust around.
However, for the price I paid and the location, this place was exactly what I needed and I'm thankful to have this type of accommodation available to me.
I booked a 2 bedroom, presuming that it would small within limited amenities in this location. It was enormous, with heaps of room for luggage and to spread out. We went to the Harry Potter play, so a simple walk home after the show.
I guess the building was old, which may not appeal to some people. And you could hear people walking above you, which is just age of the building. Bed very comfortable, we had lounge with separate dining room and the kitchen, which was really spacious.
I would have been happy to receive what was advertised only.
no blinds to the room, makes you do everything in the dark, not private
no chair to seat on and eat
works pressure washing of windows at midnight
The apartments are older but clean. Extremely convenient to Melbourne CBD and the Theatre district. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. I would stay here again. I did book a studio apartment but was upgraded to a one bedroom which was a surprise.
Great location if you are going to the theatre/show at this end of town. Had a 2 bedroom apartment which was large and had all facilities we needed. The bedrooms had large comfortable beds with nice clean sheets. The bathroom however was disgusting. Front of vanity had fallen off, the shower screen did not close, the shower floor looked as if it was 100 years old as did the taps. The main living area had 2 large built in heaters that didn't work and the carpet on the floor and staircase was gross. Stains and thread bare all over and it was coming away from the walls. Floor in downstairs toilet had not been swept for ages.Outside the glass doors hadn't been swept or cleaned for weeks, and generally the place was very tired. Despite the location wouldn't stay here again.
