        The hotel is clean, spacious and comfortable

        The apartment is located at a great place where it is just accross The Crown Casino where there are great restaurants and late night shopping. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. We were being put up on high floors and the view is excellent which overlook partial city and sea view. There is a metro tram just outside the apartment which gives easy access to the heart of city of about 10 min. Overall, it is a great place which I will recommend strongly.

        Great location if you are attending a conference ”

        A great apartment if you need a place close to the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre at Southbank. It has all you need for a short stay and it's very clean. However, the blinds do not keep the lights out at night as the hotel faces Crown casino and the room may not be very child-friendly if you have toddlers. But overall a very clean, well-equipped apartment at a really great location. There's even a supermarket downstairs.

        Staff were lovely and so helpful. Communication was great. The aircon left a bit to be desired and the option of a portable fan would be great. The balcony was a great option. The living area was quite small so I had to move a chair. Bathroom shower head was awful, the support bar next to the toilet is a good idea but not removable so got in the way. Bathroom very small. Overall I would maybe stay here again but not for the price I paid ($950 for 4 nights).

        Very spacious! Just stone throw from crown. Room amenities not sufficient for many nights stay and no instructions to inform how to ask for new toilet rolls, shampoos etc. Late check in with paid parking is unpleasant. They refuse to provide the details prior via email. End up when we took the keys, we do not understand their instructions of where is the entrance of the car park. We had to brave the street cold weather to stand by the letterbox and keep reading then frantically find their contact numbers to seek help on where is the entrance. There is no place to take shelter besides our own car and if we go into own car, we are back to square one as we need to be on foot to locate the car park entrance. This problem would be eliminated if they had agree to provide such info over email and with better map to show where the entrance. Other than that, the apartment is really great!

        Although this apartment is fine, the after hours check in process is difficult. I was advised to enter a code into a machine to dispense a key, but the machine was faulty and I waited more than 40 minutes in the wind and rain late at night before I could be let in. Not happy!! Having said that, the staff were very apologetic and the room itself was great.

        The seriouse problem had happen when I checked in after 10 PM. After I researved and printed out boucher, the paper also printed out which explains how to check in after office closed since 8 pm and with telephone number. But any telephone number which Agoda showed was wronng number. It was out of service. Also there is nobody in the short stay apartment reception. It was too uneasy for stayer.

        Location. Parking. Clean

        The stay in general was good. Opted for a room facing the view of crown and regretted it as soon as we got into the room. CONS: The blinds on the floor to ceiling windows did not do too much of blocking the bright lights outside and the sun in the morning. It was the side were the trams and taxis where as well so the noise was obvious. Another thing is the fact that we had to use the key to lock and unlock the main door, it was quiet hard when you have so many things on your hands. PROS: Other than those, our stay was good enough. The heating and airconditiong worked quiet well. The location of the apartment was great as it was close to everything. It was quiet enough in the place itself and having the IGA downstairs was handy too. Would 50/50 recommend the place depending on reason for stay.

        Location, comfortable bed, co-operativeness of staff with our particular needs.

        It met all our expectations and while we were not able to access our room when we arrived in the morning, which we expected, it was great to be able to park our car and not use it again until we departed. The staff helped us with directions, printed off maps, MYKI travel etc. I did manage to lock myself in the stairwell, stupidly, but calmed down enough to follow the directions on the doors. Other than that it was a great location and we enjoyed lots of walk along the river.

We upgraded to a 2-bedroom apartment and felt we were a home away from home, with full kitchen facilities, laundry and ironing facilities, great TV entertainment which making our stay memorable and fuss-free.

        Location, Access to public transport and amenities.

        It was a wonderful experience as it was just at one of the pick-up points for the famous tramcar restaurant in front of the apartments. As most part of melbourne city closes at 6pm for retail and 8pm for dining, the location of the Crown Entertainment Centre and nearby South Melbourne market provided for good "after dark" entertainment and dinning. Perfect location with ease of transportation to the city. Remember to get the Myki card for ease of travel. $3.50 travel for whole day. Walking is also great as the city is accessible within 20mins walk.

        I traveled to Melbourne very often. I always love Southbank area as it is very accessible to the city. The few hotels @ Southbank are Metropol, Crown Casino and Crown hotel. I have tried them all. However, I choose a service apartment. You have your own little kitchen and a hall too. Its just 5mins walk away to the Casino, whereby there are cinemas and food. There is a tram just opposite the service apartment. Most important, I have too much memories @ Whiteman street. Love the place, great for family too.
