A great apartment with splendid view!”
The 'great' things? i) A comfy apartment with great facilities (Kitchenette, Washing Machine, Dryer etc.) Worth every penny! ii)On my fifth day (14th Jul 2019), a leakage happened, resulting the carpet in the hallway soaking wet. The power has been cut off, due to safety reason. Solution provided was really good. We were being moved to The Bank Apartment. At this point staffs were very attentive. Good job! iii) The refund for deposit taken via Credit Card was quick. I should say the best ever, my last day was on 16th Jul, by 18th Jul (as this is my fourth returing visit, to Melbourne for holidays. I had stayed in few different apartments, previously) it has already been refunded. What can be done, even better? On my day of arrival (10th Jul 2019) the check in was a breeze. It would be very much apprreciated if the staff could smile, more. Conclusion? I love this place, recommended for solo or group (especially families) traveler. The facilities is superb and worth every penny.
Expexted Internet problem”
I read some reviews abt this apartment before came here, so i knew the internet here is problem. Since I came for work, I anticipated with buying 55gb sim card so i dont need to deal with the staff here to fix it. But my colleagues who also rented here said his internet is okay.
The apartment is small but compact. No oil/salt/pepper for cooking, but it has everything else. Wifi didnt work for our 3 days of stay, which was pretty frustrating. However, the front desk actually waived our parking fees to compensate for it.
The thing that I don’t like about Aria is the parking space. it’s very troublesome especially for big car and inexperienced drivers. It’s so steep and narrow path to go up and there is only one lane to go up and down. They just put a red and green light as a sign
Staff were excellent. Upgraded us to a 2br room. Location was exactly what we were looking for , near all locations in Southbank and surrounds. Room was spotlessly clean. The whole deal was value for money.
Very impressed ”
Very good location, close to so many places. On our stay wifi very bad until our last day but now they just put the new modem, from now hope no one will complains about too slow wifi again. I will stay here again for sure next trip.
Terrible service after spending 3 night per week there for 2-3 mths , they changed policy of security funds, it was weekend , I didn’t know yet booked in on the Friday at 6pm and it niw Sunday and I have clients with me to check in there room and they want 250 security deposit , yet it’s akesys been $50, they said it went up Friday , I explained I checked in Friday and I was not charged or told that! They wouldn’t help us out , yet I’d stay as above 36 times before! I list my room money and had to split from clients was appalled, no loyalty! Lots my business
Nice service and good location from our event
Exelent choice for groups or families”
Great spot in Southbank, close to DFO, Casino and Waterfront Shops & Restaurants. Very helpful staff, we had an awkward number (7 single adults) and were able to have bedrooms configured to suit perfectly. Very good value for this standard of apartment - Will definitely stay again!
Good value for money”
Area was spacious and perfect for families with small children. We were able to do some laundry during our overnight stay which was very convenient. Kitchen complete with dishwasher and all types of utensils.
Great Location Spacious Apartment”
We enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was clean and spacious and had a balcony. We didn't realise that you had to pre-book parking ($17) so had to park at Crown ($21 and only a 5 minute walk away). I would definitely stay here again.
I had experience with one of the receptionists. She was that bad actually but I felt that she is more friendly and attentive to local guests than international guests. She acted like she didn't want to talk to us and found us annoying as in fact I just seek her basic and normal assistance like any other guests do in the hotel. She provided the service with mean face and not so helpful. I didn't pick up her name. However, when I pick up my luggage from the hotel, the receptionist at that time is very friendly and helpful. She even help me moving my luggage.
Nice & Cosy Apartment”
We spent 3nights here. near to COLES , WW and also the CALENDRON ST tram station. If you rent a car (AVIS/BUDGET), you can return it just beside of this building. Walking distance to DFO South Wharf.
Great place to stay.
The reception staff were fantastic, particularly, the young women who greeted us on our arrival. She was so helpful and knowledgeable. I will recommend your hotel on this basis.
Had a pleasant stay at a prime location ”
Great location. We had a night flight back to Sydney but checkout was 10am. We were so happy they had provided luggage storage service so that we explored the city whole day.
Not good ”
No loyalty to great customers that spent 49 nights in 12 weeks ! Lost my business both Agoda and here ! Really sadness me
Brilliant apartment. We will definitely stay here again. Only gave half marks on facilities as a toilet roll holder was loose and a door got stuck. Staff were brilliant and the size of the two bedroom apartment one of the best we have stayed in at Southbank. We look forward to our next stay at Aria Experience.
Home Away From Home”
We really enjoyed our stay at Aria Hotel. It is around 5-10 mins walk from the MCEC where I attended a congress. It is also very near the tram stop, grocery store, Yarra river and McDonald’s. The hotel also has complete facilities and appliances and the area is spacious. We definitely recommend this place!
Close to Exhibition Centre”
The apartment had everything that one needs for a stayover, however it needed some TLC and better cleaning - there was fat splatter all over the splashback, and the WIFI was practically non-existent - not at all good when it's a business trip!!
