Maitland, Australia
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Comfortable and convenient in a great location so close to trams and the centre of Melbourne. Facilities were great with everything that we needed for a family of 4. Decore needs an upgrade but the apartment was clean, comfortable and had neat kitchenette with everything that you would need for a family stay in Melbourne.

Great location, balcony looked onto a alley way not what is pictured on all the websites over looking Collins street. Very small bathroom. Staff were lovely in helping us with anything we needed but the standard of the room was not great for a 2 bedroom apartment even down to having dirty cutlery.

In the heart of town. Fabulous apartment, great value for money. Wonderful place for couples, families or a weekend away with friends. Tram stop right outside, shopping and eating close by. Easy to get to.

We stayed in a 2 brm unit with a balcony on the 11th floor. We had a partial view towards the river but overlooking a concrete yard belonging to the backpacker. The old rooms have been renovated with new furniture but the bathrooms are very old and in need of a revamp. The unit was spacious and the location great...

Reasonable condition apartment in a central location, friendly and functional and a good size. Some elements had been economically refitted recently, others a bit tired. Perfect spot to walk to everything in the CBD!

Room smelt terrible of cigarette smoke that we couldn't get out of the room, small black curled hairs found on the sheets in the main bed and had to kill cockroaches in kitchen and main bedroom wouldn't recommend to family or friends

I haven't been refunded the $100 deposit yet 4 days after check out. Why do you have to hold deposit for so long. Bathroom is pretty ordinary. Curtain was falling off the rails. Location is great. Bin wasn't emptied on first day.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When you're staying in the heart of Collins Street you'd expect to pay a lot more, but these self-contained apartments are an absolute steal. BreakFree on Collins Apartments (formerly Darling Towers) are fully equipped with absolutely everything you need from a dishwasher to stove and oven to broadband internet access. The reverse cycle air-conditioning keeps you comfortable no matter what the Melbourne weather is dishing out. BreakFree on Collins features One or Two Bedroom Apartments that are modern, stylish and comfortable. You'll love the location with free CBD City Circle tram right on your doorstep, designer outlets, heritage buildings and famous department stores nearby. Go all hip in the intriguing little lanes that Melbourne is famous for or catch a bit of culture at the many art centres and museums. Of course there's sport, the Rod Laver Arena hosts the Australian Open, the AFL Grand Final is held at the MCG or you can catch one of many exciting games at Docklands Stadium. You won't want to miss the Melbourne Cup and the rest of the Spring Racing Carnival or perhaps you just want to head on over to Fitzroy and Acland Streets St Kilda to get amongst the funky and colourful mix of restaurants, people and places of interest. Choose from One or Two Bedroom Apartments and Deluxe Apartments or take in the views across the city and go right to the top in a BreakFree on Collins Apartment with Balcony.
