No coffee pods, sofa was very uncomfortable

Pros: It was quite spacious for a one bedroom apartment
Cons: Amenities could be checked prior to guests arrival. The sofa was uncomfortable and difficult to get off as the cushions sunk in the middle.
Location: Access to South Bank was quite good. Bed was comfortable.
Our vehicle arrival from the airport was difficult due to the fact that after 4 pm there was no RH turn into Power Street. It would have helped if these details were given before arrival. Disappointed that no coffee pods or instant coffee was available. We advised Chris the day after arrival but no attempt was made to deliver any coffee pods. We were told to buy some from a supermarket. There was no liquid shower wash in the dispenser over the bath. The two tiny soap bars were insufficient for a 3 night stay for two people.

Thanks for your feedback. Itis important to us. I must have seen this feedback from you at the time because I added the information you supplied about the right-hand turn on our directions. Hopefully that will have helped someone else in a similar situation. I'm sorry you had issues with the amenities. We have been using a different house-keeping company for some time, and these kinds of things don't happen any more. Capsules are always supplied for our Espressitorio machines. I do hope that we see you or your friends again. If you would like to try somewhere else for a change of scene, we have nearly 30 different locations around inner Melbourne, with more than 800 reviews at 4.9 Stars, so there are plenty of reasons to 'StayCentral' and lots of scope for variety. I look forward to assisting you next time; with your returning-guest discount. Regards, Chris McDonald, StayCentral Melbourne Long-stay Apartments.

Hotel near to trams & CBD. Good sized room.

Pros: Lose to most things
Cons: The bathroom
Location: Tram stop, convenience store, great little takeaway with the best ever stuffed baked potatoes. Stroll along the yard river at night, so memorable
Good place to stay in Melbourne. Only 20min walk from CBD or 5 min tram ride. Apartment was a good size, good kitchen to cook own meals. Bathroom was a bit tired and could do with a more thorough clean. Couldn’t get Netflix to work, which was a pain. Wonder if other customers had this issue. But still enjoyed our time there.

This is an old review (which we have only just found) but for what it's worth, the bathroom and the rest of the apartment was given a big refurbishment recently, so hopefully you won't find it so tired looking if you returned with your returning-guest discount! If you would like to try somewhere else for a change of scene, however, we have nearly 30 different locations around inner Melbourne, with more than 800 reviews at 4.9 Stars, so there are plenty of reasons to 'StayCentral' and lots of scope for variety. I look forward to assisting you next time. Regards, Chris McDonald, StayCentral Melbourne Corporate Apartments.
