You Cant go wrong if you choose to stay at IFSTAY property”
Stayed for 8 days at IFSTAY west side , Spencer street Excellent location in the centre of CBD Well connected by tram,trains & buses with all across the state Southern cross station at 300 meters Trams to all pover at 200 meters Coles mall at 100 meters Countless eateries ..... Very well equippeed apartments....good view ...higher floors noiseless... staff good helpful Secure So overall an excelent place to be in Melbourne Esp for people who are dropping their children to various univs & colleges
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.
perfect 👌 ”
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.
Close to everything! Across to Coles and Woolies, outlets/shops, tram, bus stops, Southern cross sta”
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.
Location of the place is very convinient. Near to the Southern Cross Station where you can take the bus to the airport.. and also within the free tram zone.. all in juat walking distance of 5-10 mins.. the hotel le us checked in.. the staff at the reception was very attentive.. my apartment was at the midtown apartment.. The apartment it self was clean.. with all facilities provided except for a dryer.. anyway there is a self service laundry at the ground floor so I can dry my clothes there.. overall i totally recommend this apartment for a long stay in Melbourne..
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.
Was lovely delux, two bedroom apartment, in the Hudson building...modern facilities and appliances, beds were very comfortable, linen excellent quality, excellent shower pressure. Location was awesome, very close to all public transport, coles and woolworths close by, plus many eateries, chemist, spcialty stores. Access to two pools and two gyms, with new cable and cardio equipment. Check in and out very quick and easy and reception staff were lovely. Special mention to Anna who was very helpful. We loved it here and will definitely stay again when we next come to Melbourne.
Great Option for Melbourne staying”
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.
Worth it , central location within the free tram zone ”
Nice and cozy apartment, perfect for family with young children. Coles is just 3 mins away and easy to grab Halal food within the vicinities. The Manhattan Tower offers you spacious and comfortable stay with efficient service from the Managers , Winnie and Anna. They were prompt and helpful in responding to all our queries during our stay. We will be back again and enjoy our next winter holiday in Melbourne
Excellent location and value for money ”
The room is clean and comfort, the apartment is 3~5 mins walk from Southern Cross station. There are many cafes and restaurants in walking distant. Coles supermarket Is just opposite of the apartment. Free tram station is only 3 mins walking distant from apartment. The reception staffs Ms Winnie, Anna and Michelle are very friendly and helpful, they are very polite and quick respond to your request. We are very happy with our stay in this service apartment and will definitely recommend to friends who want to travel to Melbourne
Superb apartment , locality accessible to train , sky bus n tram. Coles and eateries are closeby.”
I strongly recommend IfStays apartment which is near Southern Cross station, n accessible to sky bus to/fro airport. It’s Manager Coral Xiao is very helpful n attentive to our request for early check-in. We stayed at Manhattan block , unit is spacious n clean and fully furnished. I hope they provide kitchen scissors too.
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.
The apartment was very spacious & clean. GREAT value for money & its right in the CBD. You won’t find a better apartment for this price! And the staff were very accommodating to our needs & helped us anytime time of the day we needed. Thank you for a beautiful stay.
Winnie and Anna were great. It was good to stay at ifstays apartment as good price and location.”

Great Location ”
Great Location very close to Skybus station and city tram. Easy walk to outlet and Coles supermarket. Comfortable for 4 person. I will back to stay again when I visit to Melbourne.
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).
Cheap and Convenient”
For short stay in the CBD Melbourne, it definitely the best place money for value. very quiet at night.
