    Very convenient.It's located close to Southern Cross Station, when you arrive Melbourne ,it's a good choice to stay. There is a tram station outside the building. But the acception counter is on 14th floor, you should call them and they will guide you.(If you can't use the phone, there is a intercom outside the back gate and you can dial 1410 to contact the counter) I would like to stay next time.

When we arrived we were lost and couldnt find the reception. Should include instructions in email to avoid hassles. There should be a free cleaning but cleaner didn't clean toilet / change bedsheets /vacuum the carpets. Heater is barely enough for start of winter. Water flow is slow in shower.

    wonderful- but confirm bedding”

    The picture and description on Agoda stated sofabed and queen-sized bed. When the sofabed was broken, management said it was because I hadn't specified that I needed an extra bed, and that there was an extra cost. Yet, I then received a text message asking when they could come fix the sofabed? Other than that communications snag, the place was lovely. Every touch was considered- from electric shaver to washer and dryer, ironing board and even laundry detergent. 3 minutes walk from central train station. I can't recommend highly enough. But be sure to capture Agoda description to show them, or email to confirm bedding situation. I took for granted the description would be honored, which was then questioned. Overall, a lovely stay.

    It is in the heart of the city, near restaurants and convenience stores, coffee shops. bus/tram stop is right in front. Just inform the property the time of your arrival so that thr caretaker will be there to neet tou downstairs otherwise check in will be a problem.

    Cute, compact apartment with great view and everything you need for a convenient stay. Good location, close to trams, supermarkets, eateries and Southern Cross station. Pros: good security, great heating, comfy pillows and unlimited access to Netflix. Cons: noisy neighbours (slammed doors), creaky building, bad shower drainage (water collects in far corner of bathroom) and not enough coffee/sugar/milk supplies. Minor issues though and would definitely stay again.

    Great value accommodation for families”

    Our apartment was lovely - great views and room for us and two kids. Located near the free tram loop and walking distance to great coffee/breakfast (Flinders Lane) and not too far from good restaurant choices (Hardware Lane). Truly reasonable price for what it gave us. Booked our car into carpark provided by apartments (very reasonable at $20 per day) - just had to ring them and wait in rear laneway to be swiped in. Minimum inconvenience for secure and cheap parking. Recommend it to families looking to experience Melbourne.

    Good local, but no service ”

    We stayed at the apartment for 5 nights. We arrived the building at 1345pm. We did not see the customer service desk. Then we made many calls. But no one answered calls. We were very worried. After 20 minutes, the CS answered call and brought us to check in the room. They only prepared one set of bath kit and two sets of tissues to us for 5 nights. Need to contact CS to give more. But The CS desk open from 10 am to 7pm. We think someone came and check the room, after we went out. As we haven't turned off one light before we go out, when we came back the light is turned off. We worried about the privacy.

    Was a good place to stay, but I wouldn’t recommend for a big group. There were 5 of us, but it was a bit too small for a group that size. The extra bed that cost us $40 extra, was a blow up mattress that had deflated by the time we checked in. Not worth the extra $40. Bathroom was big, kitchen appliances worked wonderfully, and fridge/freezer combo was perfect size for our group. Just a small lounge area and bedrooms were a bit small

    Beware”

    I have stayed at many accommodations without a front office. And I understand the limitation of Agoda Homes - yet most hosts are responsive to emails & went far beyond my expectations. However, this one is the more problematic one. First, this is not Agoda Home. They rent out several condo units commercially. No real home owners. We have to call so that someone would come down to pick us up for check-in. If we arrive outside the hours, we have to pay extra. Based on their "rules" 21:30PM-9:30AM arrival will incur $30 charge. They encourage contacts via Line, WeChat, WhatsApp and Email. As the agoda listing included Late Check-out, we did write an email to confirm at 9AM. They replied me at 10:40AM with the late check-out extension to 11AM. Everything after that, will incur a charge. Despite a nice amenities and convenient location, I would stay further East on Collins Street to have better access to shopping, financials, restaurants, and trams.
