    Room with a view, but checking-in was quite a hassle”

    UrbanMinder@Spencer provided the best value for money out of all my accommodations throughout Melbourne. Apartment was on the 35th floor, providing an expansive balcony overlooking Melbourne Docklands (and some strong chilly winds during Winter). Individual bed rooms were big and spacious with full-length glass windows. Limited bath amenities provided for our group of 3 staying across 3 nights. We were only provided 2 small bottles of shampoo and body lotion which ran out by the 2nd night. Had to purchase more from Coles located just across the road. Do note that luggage storage at UrbanMinders is not a given and subject to whether anyone is staying in the apartment the day prior to your check-in. Check in with them a few days prior to your arrival to confirm if luggage can be deposited, else plan for storage services such as Bagbnb.com or use the available lockers at Southern Cross Station. All-in-all, would stay here again at UrbanMinder during my next visit to Melbourne.

    The location is good, close to train station, free tram and supermarkets. The view is superb. Wifi was a bit slow and there were only 2 lifts that can arrive the level we were staying, and therefore it was a bit hard to get up and down at peak time. Overall, the value is good, recommended.

    Clean & Modern Apartment with Great View”

    Stayed in this 2 bedroom apartment end Feb 2018 for 5 nights and was totally satisfied with it. Love the size of the apartment as it is around 1000 sq ft, 2 spacious bedrooms, living room, dinning room and open kitchen. Best of all is the breath-taking view from the high floor of this apartment which is hard to find in any normal hotels with this kind of price I was paying. Absolutely a gem in the city where it's easy access with tram and train station just 5 mins away. I highly recommend it to anyone who is travelling with family as it can easily sleeps 5 people.

    Urban Minder @ Spencer apartment is a two modern bedroom apartment, an excellent place to stay in term of its strategic location (very close to Coles supermarket and southern cross Sky bus/train station) and very clean. My family and I really enjoyed our stay for three nights there. Highly recommended and would definitely stay there in future. Great experience from booking to check out, we were 100% satisfied. Thanks to Kimberley, Van and Sameer. Excellent Job!

    Great scenery”

    The rooms are good with a tiny balcony that can see the whole Melbourne city skyline. It was beautiful. Room was just right for 4 but only 1 toilet which wasn't very convenient for us. The shower place has only half glass door to prevent water from splashing out so most of the time, water would splash out on the other side. Suggest should get a full glassed door. Overall, we like our stay alot. Location was great as well, minutes walk to southern cross station and supermarket/cafes.

    최악의 숙소”

    사실 별하나 주기도 아깝다. 10박을 예약하고 6박만 가능했는데 우선 도착한날 예약했다는 숙소가 문제가생겨 폐쇄되었다며 다른 숙소로 옮기라고 했다. 대신 업그레이드를 해주겠다며..그러나 업그레이드 된건 그냥 방과 화장실 개수만 늘어났을뿐..여행시작부터 받은 스트레스와 시간낭비를 생각하면 업그레이드가 아니라 최악의 여행으로 만들어 주었다. 우리는 6박만 확정을 받았고 나머지 4박은 스스로 알아보고 결정해서 옮겨야했다. 아고다에 4박에대한 환불을 했다지만 우리는 아직 돈을 돌려받지 못했다. 그리고 이 숙소의 가장 최악은 매니저와 통화를 하거나 볼수 없다. 오로지 메일로만 대화가 가능해서 무슨 유령회사 같았다. 이런 서비스는 나는 금년에만 총 6개의 동유럽과 동남아시아 여행을 했고 묶었던 숙소만해도 거의 스무개에 가깝다. 하지만 이런 숙소는 처음본다. 돈을 확실히 돌려받지도 못한채 키를 반납하지 않으면 벌금 500달라를 내야한다는 협박만 받았다. 절대절대 이 숙소에는 단 한시간도 머무르지 않기를 바란다. It was the worst hotel ever. Problems can arise from traveling. But to solve the problem, you must be able to talk to the manager. The manager of this place couldn't hear a face or voice. After exchanging opinions only through mail, I had to check out the room six nights out of ten and not even get a refund for four nights. For their reasons, they changed check-in late to another hotel on arrival in Melbourne, and they upgraded themselves, taking responsibility for six nights and avoiding responsibility for the remaining four nights. He did more than just common sense that he did not give accurate information on how much he paid for the refund. Instead, when they said they would check out if they had to, they said they had lost some money by upgrading their accommodation and told me that if they didn't return their keys, I had a $500 fine. I've never asked for an upgrade, and I'm not sure this is an upgrade. Is the number of rooms or toilets the standard for upgrading? The service is inferior to the guest house.

    후기가 몇개 없어 숙소에 도착하는 순간 35층의 멜버른 야경에 감탄하게 됩니다. 2박3일의 여행동안 숙소가 가장 기억에 남네요. 호텔보다 나아요. 근처에 콜스마트, 무료트램 등이 가까이에 있어 편리합니다. 방이 2개인데다 거실도 크고, 취사를 할 수 있어 가족이 이용하기 좋은 장소입니다.
