Property wasnt overly clean. Was told there would be parking available at rear of property, extremely tight to get into and then totally full so we found our car on the street for the night. Entrance and stairwells smelt musty and unpleasant. Only benefit was that is was only a short walk to MCG

Some noise insulation would be good, I was on ground floor and the street access door sounded like it was in my room when it opened, hallways were like an echo chamber, could here muffled conversations at reception etc.

Good clean set up but we had an 11.00am check out and got knocked on the door to leave at 10.30am by the cleaners.

The position is great, it is good value for money. The apartment was light, bright and quiet. Security could be easily improved. There is no in-room safe. Pedestrians can access the parking which is hidden behind the building. Swipe key access to car park would improve this.
