      Better value for money than hotel. Better floor area too. Would be better if there is washing machine for long stays . Also house keeping is for 7 nights or longer only . Lads be aware, getting toilet seat to stay up is a bit challenging ...

      The place was so accessible, 5mins walk going to victoria market, many convenience stores and restaurants around the area and the area is included for a free tram which is so good. - room : the room is okay and big and not so expensive. Look for ANNA and WINNIE they are the staffs of IFSTAYS lighthouse and they will assist you in the duration of your stay and they are so accomodating , easy check in and and checkout. My Overall experienced was soooooo goood!!!!

      Great Location”

      The hotel apartment is very near to QV Market, there is an asian supermarket a few doors away. the only issue staying here is that the check in office/key collection office is a block away. if you plan to stay here, do drop your luggage first, (with someone to take care of it) while you walk to the key collection office. the room/studio is of a decent size for couple (we booked the 1 room apartment). kitchen is well equipped. I just wished there is a washing machine and dryer, other than that its good!. oh we stayed for a week, and there was a cleaning service in the middle of the week. which was good. It is within the free tram zone, and just a tram ride away to bourke street mall, la trobe, collins, and flinders street/ flinders train station. i will definitely consider this hotel/apartment again!

      Very clean room and high floor viewing melbourne city. Location was great with restaurants in walking distance. Quite near Chinatown too. Only cons i have it some weird sounds like a door cracking sounds at ceiling in the bedroom. Thought it was from the airconditioning but after switch off, the sound still there. We just ignore it.

      Great experience. Recommended!”

      It was a great experience for our family who stayed at this property. They don't have any on side service/front desk so everything is done via email which is not a problem. They are pretty fast on their action if you ever need anything. One thing that should be improved is the collection of the key. It is 5 minutes walk and if you travel with kids, it will be quite a hassle. but overall, it's a great place. Truly recommended

      The check in and check out process is simple, no delay expected. Upon seeing the unit we were surprised by the cleanliness. Even happier when facilities in the room are all well maintained and complete. I would recommend this place to my family and friends if they are in Melbourne. Thank you Ifstays Lighthouse and team!

      Perfect Location ”

      Pros: Very near to Tourist attractions; Free Tram Zone in front of the building. Walking distance to Central Terminal. Asian Convenient Store right at the ground floor. Very near the Bourke Mall. The unit is spacious and comes with cooking amenities. Netflix is definitely a plus. Rooms have a great view of the city from the floor to ceiling glass window. Staffs were very accommodating and quick to respond. Cons. Long queue in the elevator. You will get the key from another establishment located near the building (but not an issue at all). But over all, our stay was very convenient and will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

      Think twice!!!”

      Much choice of apartment within this building but not this agency. The overall facilities is satisfactory although the housekeeping need improvement.The most awful is the check-in process, since it is not inside the building as well as the staff is not the direct contact person to this apartment , who is just the middleman .Any enquiry concerned are required to make a call from the middleman to the property agency of this apartment (not answering on my experience) which is time consuming . Also, no housekeeping provided unless you stayed more than 7 days.

      I enjoyed my stay for the 7days. The view of the city was beautiful. Nearby excess to departmental stores and asian supermarket. About 20mins walk to southern cross station. The only downside was, we didnt know how to clear our rubbish. As thr were no instruction. And only 1 set was given, albeit they brief u tht only 1set is given. It wld be great, if the checkout was below the apartments. Prevents us from unnessary movement to drop off our keys with the luggages during check out

      Great location”

      Location is superb - right in the middle of Melbourne CBD. You can go around the CBD using the free tram which is a 3 minute walk from the place. Queen Victoria Market is walking distance from the place (you'll see a lot of Asian restaurants while walking to Queen Victoria). The only problem we had with the place is that there was a problem with plumbing. The water back flowed in one of the cabinets (that was supposed to be for the washing machine I guess) and it gave out a foul smell.

      Very accessible with train and tram station in walking distance. Plenty of restaurant and shopping malls. Room was clean with a nice view. The only downside was that this is an apartment so there is no reception staff if you need any help. Lift area was ongoing a renovation and many lifts are not working. Waiting time for lift can take quite a while. Other than that, everything else is good!

      Great location, good unit”

      Enjoyed our stay here. The unit was very close to Queen Vic Markets. We were able to buy food and cook in the unit itself. Bed was comfortable, as was the of the unit. Cleanliness wasn’t perfect. The sheets were dirty when we first arrived. That said, the staff were good about getting them replaced. The frequency of servicing could be improved. I think we didn’t get a change of towels for the 5 days we were in the unit. The lack of a check in or reception is also somewhat disconcerting. Overall, enjoyable place but expect to be left alone to diy a lot.
