    Exceptional”
    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

    Good location and great amenities. The host made the check in process very simple and was very helpful. The only negative I had was with the noise, I read a few other reviews that mentioned creaks and groans from the building but thought nothing of it. When the wind started to pick up I was amazed. The rooms make ALOT of noise that made sleeping really quite difficult. I would stay here again, but perhaps on a lower floor that isn't so open to the high winds in Melbourne (and with some earplugs).

    Lift not functioning”
    None of the lift is functioning in the morning, and we are rushing to airport... its a 65floors building, we are staying in 57th floor. no lift how are we going down? there is no number for us to call and even the contact number to the Urban Modern is no one picking up and the mailbox is full.... what a horrendous experience.

    Value for money one-bedder apartment conveniently located”
    This is a value-for-money one-bedroom apartment that is centrally located, just 200m from the Southern Cross Station, and walking distance to eating and shopping places, as well as the free tram service. The apartment itself was very clean, new, and functional and had everything we needed -- washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, stove, kettle, towels, toilet paper and small toiletries. My only issue was the place is not labelled, so you'll really need to depend on the instructions of the building manager to find it, and you'll have to wait at the lobby for someone to receive you. We were early and someone took our luggage up first (which was a bit unnerving); when we came back later, I called again and the person said he would check if our room was ready, but he didn't get back to us -- thankfully the same person who took our luggage happened to come down and helped us. I think the check-in process could be smoother.

    Great location, nice gym, pool, spa and sauna. No clothes hanging rack in the apartment, but I do not want to use the dryer to dry my clothes, the apartment managed to buy one and arranged for me the next day. Left my earrings on dinning table when I checked out. Called the next day, my earrings were gone. Disappointed.

    It was awesome overall price, location and view to the city and parking over night of $20 which is standard. The only thing was because it's a service apartment, you do need to allowed time to check in and out as there's no office. Staff is very helpful.

    Pros: -The one bedroom apartment is fairly spacious. -Clean -friendly staff -location is great -views from room is great Cons. -room was very noisy when windy outside (maybe it was because our room was on the second highest floor and the wind was stronger higher up?) found it very hard to sleep due to all the noise. Constantly heard things banging and squeaking in the room due to the wind, which I ended up having to sleep with ear plugs to help me sleep. -pillows were uncomfortable for me. Although they were very soft, I personally like a firm pillow to sleep on. Overall the apartment was okay.

    Disappoint & Unsatisfactory”
    We a family of 2 adults and 1 child stayed 5 nights in this hotel. Location of the hotel is very good, near to southern cross railway station and supermarket. The biggest drawback of this hotel, there is no front desk and no place to sit in the hotel. Hotel staff will only appear after 9.30 am, in case you reach hotel early you have to look for a place to wait. Even though they say early check in, you will not get room anytime before 12 noon. During this period you have to decide what you want to do as there is no sitting place they offer. Hotel staff will meet you and will take your luggage and you need to trust to them as no choices. Our overall experience in this hotel is not good except the location. We will never come back to this hotel. There are other good hotel in this location which is value for money. This is not a right choice if traveling with family with children.

    Horrible stay”
    I booked a two bedroom apartment for 4 adults I requested to have two large bed and I had spoken to management prior to our stay and had been told it was arranged, we arrived to the apartment and there was one large bed and two singles the staff told us he could help us push them together but I don't it myself Then... 2.15am the smoke detector started alarming whilst we were all asleep I turned it off and it went off again at 2.30am and had to take the battery out as it wouldn't stop. There was a storm about 30minutes later the windows were screeching and howling the whole apartment was creaking an cracking i thought someone was braking into the apartment, there must be air leaks in the windows as the blinds were all blowing and banging There was also a old use block of soap left in the shower (gross) Overall it was a horrible stay and I won't be returning in the future

    This apartment was nice to stay in and was very modern and renovated However, we only received fresh towels once in 6 days, and housekeeping did not come at all, not even to empty the bins - this was very disappointing. It is little things like this that would make me consider a different accommodation for my next trip to Melbourne. Also, we were required to pay an extra $20.00 to check-in after 10:30pm, even though reception is 24 hours. We were meant to check in by 8:30pm, although our flight was delayed by 2 hours and upon arriving in Melbourne, we waited 45 minutes to collect our baggage. I asked the man why we needed to pay the extra amount when everything was out of our control and the airport was extremely inefficient. He told us that it was company policy, and this only contributed to our stress that night. I still don't understand why we had to pay someone to come down and give us the keys when they work throughout the night anyway.

    Good apartment but met down by a few things ”
    Pros: modern apartment on Collins Street, so very central and right beside the tram stop. Good range of pots, utensils etc Cons: the apartment was serviced only once in the week we were there (to replenish the toiletries as much as anything). The arrangement in the bathroom between very small basin and medicine cabinet made it virtually impossible to wet shave without banging your head. Poorly lit, a combination of the dark film on the windows and a meagre selection of ceiling lights, making it rather characterless Cheap fit out eg furnishings (only one small 2 seater to sit on) Compared to the apartment in downtown Sydney I stayed in the previous week, this wasn't great. 6/10 overall

    A nice apartment without real reception on the first floor”
    We ordered two-night in this apartment. Most of the things are good, like location, clean room, and staff. But, there is no real reception center on the ground floor. So, it's hard for us to contact apartment staff when we arrived.(due to another two apartments' reception center on the ground floor) And the check-out method let us a little concern.(because of just putting the key in the room) Besides, if you want your luggage temporality store in the hotel, you also can't see where the luggage is put.Besides, there is no phone in the room, so you can't contact staff by phone directly. Based on above message, we leave this apartment after check-in. After that, we called Agoda discussing one-night refund. But, Agoda server told us that the apartment manager can't refund one-night money based on their refund policy even we just enter one-hour and want pay one-night money. So we paid two-night moeny for this experience.

    So called 24hour reception is just a phone number to call - which we were not provided with on our booking confirmation. The check-in process took an hour - quite stressful and unnecessary. I'm sure the electrical cords stuck on to the wall with tape would not pass a safety inspection. Unit was unfortunately cluttered up with unattractive, cheap, empty shelving units and cupboards. We had a late flight to catch on our departure date, but were told we would have to collect our luggage by 6pm !! So we had to pay for a storage locker at Southern Cross Station - not very convenient! Also I think there was a structural or plumbing problem in the unit as the noise coming from the walls kept us awake for hours.
