        weird”

        the Hotel i actually stayed in is Manhattan which was about 50 metres from a real estate agency, ie Ironfish R/e, which is the apartment key pickup point. (this is not disclosed on IFStays website). There appears to be no facility to drop-off bags earlier than checkin time which is not very helpful. the apartment itself was satisfactory. the mattress was as hard as a floor so i did not sleep well. the power point system is also strange ie not very compatible with device charging. I was also sent an email saying i would receive a $10 gift card for rating IFSTAYS west side as a 10. a no from me. would I stay there again? no.

        Great week in Melbourne”

        We stayed on the 12th floor in the Manhattan Apartment block. Collecting the key after hours was not a problem. We were well instructed via email. Apartment was tidy and clean and well presented. We were close to trams and trains and the Spencer Street Outlet Centre. Tram was great to hop on and go into city but even to walk to the city, it was only a few blocks away. Room cleaning was done once in our 8 night stay which was fine with us. We didn't actually need to speak with staff. There were plenty of places to eat close by. The only down side was there were not enough lifts for the volume of people but this was usually around the 5pm rush hour. But overall, I would highly recommend this apartment when staying in Melbourne.

        Perfectly located in the heart of Melbourne CBD, next to Pho 24 restaurant, just across to Spencer Outlet and Southern Cross Station. I love the experience during my stay. The apartment was spacious, clean, well kept, and equipped with amenities. Will definitely consider to book it again when i visit Melbourne.

        The staff is very good. We were allowed early check in and change of room because we didn't like the first unit she gave us(Manhattan building). Close to everything. Need at least a cover for the sofa cuz its a bit old and stained, bit itchy when you lie down or sit. Overall we recommend. This is our second time. Upper west side "Hudson building" is our choice.

        Like all places there are negative and positive reviews for this place. I stayed at their Manhattan Apartment - one bed room. I think they got four apartment building on the same blocks. So each one was less then 2mins walking distance to each other. Pros: -Check in was easy, you collected your keys from a safe box via their estate agents located on one of the building. (Which they email you the password for after you do all the booking paper work. The keys has a little map so you know which apartment building you were in) - Location is amazing, underneath theirs are food and coffee. - Easy access to Uber eat and food delivery as some of the people who lives in there delivery food too (so you know your orders wont get mix up) -Surrounded by heaps of restaurants, cafes, clubs, pubs, strippers and of course beauty/spa services. (A girl gota get her nails and massage done) - Love how it is next to southern cross, easy access to and from airport and transport. - The price for the place was good, when I booked, pretty reasonably cheap. - There was Asian grocery store underneath me, Coles was across the road. - The staffs (Anna and Silvia ) were very sweet and helpful. I have really bad anxiety when it comes to new places and going by myself, so I asked a few questions and they were prompt to email me with back with a full detailed email. -The room I stay in was pretty neat, clean and everything works. Didn't have any problems with it. - Was pretty easy for me to get around and do a lot of shopping with 2 factory outlet near by, DFO South Wharf & Spencer St Outlet. Cons: -It can get a little bit nosy at night time, if you are a light sleeper. - it's not so soundproof if you have noisy neighbour in the hall way. - The natural air flowing is not that great in the apartment I stay in (as I like to open the windows and use natural breeze) , so I had the aircon on most of the time as it can get a little stuffy when I turn the aircon off. - Cos of Covid the waiting

        Wonderful stay in Melbourne CBD”

        Very easy and quick check-in. Easy to find the room. The lift very fast but a bit crowded for 52 floors. The apartment is very clean. Location excellent near Southern Cross. Sufficient kitchen amenities. Everything working well. Good wifi connection. 1 BR apartment is quite spacious for couple. Spacious toilet and shower also. The office is near the apartment so easy to contact and can be sorted out if there is any issues. If the office can provide luggage storage, it will be excellent for travelers who arrived early or late departure. I hope IFSTAY will consider this in the future.

        The 2 rooms apartment in Manhattan Tower provided is well furnished for our 5 days staying. The rooms, kitchen, and toilet are clean. All furnitures are well provided and in good conditions. Just the only 1 garbage bag is small and not enough for our 5 days staying but a minor issue. Strategy location which within 5 mins walk to Coles supermarket, Southern X station and Free zone tram stops. In short, it's a great choice for staying here in Melbourne city. Worth for money.

        Great Stay”

        This apartment was about a 5 mins walk away from Southern Cross station, the Airport Bus Terminal, the mall, supermarket; location was excellent. Asian restaurants and a small mart were just downstairs. The room was clean. The carpet had some stains, but it wasn't a big deal. Dining table had scratches but it's okay for us. The kitchen was quite nice. Electric stove worked well. The cooking pots, plates and utensils provided were clean. The bathroom was nice in general - a bit mouldy - but tolerable for us. Shower water pressure was excellent. The balcony was dusty so we wore shoes out there. The view was relatively nice, but partially blocked by surrounding buildings. The room only had one standard-sized aircon unit for the two bedrooms, the living room and kitchen, so the conditioned air couldn't reach one of the bedrooms effectively. Also, the front door handle and lock were a bit loose, would be better if they were strengthened. Overall, great stay. 8.3/10.

        Stay at : Madison Pro : great location in cbd, awesome view with Etihad stadium, cozy apartment, nice bed. Loving it! Just a bit advise, we were only supplied with 2 sets of toiletries (shampoo & body soap) during out stay from 20-24feb, because it’s 2BR apartment. Tho it won’t cost a fortune to buy, but extra service appreciate :)

        Excellent location and spacious apartment ”

        Easy check-in, even on a weekend, with clear instructions on how to retrieve the key and security card. Location is very convenient, near to Spencer Train station, Spencer Outlet Center, Coles supermarket, eateries and free trams! Apartment is clean and neat! Clothes rack and towels provided too. Only down side, pls note: dishwasher needs airing (very strong stench when opened).
