    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.

    Awful”

    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.

    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.

The hotel also has complete facilities and appliances and the area is spacious. We definitely recommend this place!

    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!!
