The location is outstanding. To be so central to everything and being so quiet... Could not ask for much more. Having a washing machine and dryer was a bonus

Property is central but wasn't very baby friendly. It was ok for a couple of nights but wouldn't stay any longer than that. - No plug in kitchen for me to wash my babys bottles etc properly. - Not even a little bottle of milk was supplied to make a cup of tea or coffee. - Exhaust fans in bathrooms were all mouldy - Dishwasher smelt disgusting and had food and glass in bottom of it - Pillows on bed smelt gross - And had to get rid of our own rubbish and recycling even after paying $300 a night....

Central to Melbourne CBD

Pros: Liked everything, especially it being so central
Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment at 238 Flinders Lane. The unit was well presented, roomy and quiet, given its location in the centre of Melbourne. Big living area, with a big comfy lounge made for a couple of relaxing nights.The Regent Theatre, the reason for our visit, was a matter of mere minutes walk away. There was plenty of restaurants within a minutes walk.

Disappointing

Pros: The bed was comfortable
Cons: Fx everything that was wrong with the apartment and work on customer interaction.
Location: I was here for business.
I found my stay here disappointing for many reasons: 1) Bathroom had two burnout lightbulbs and the washing machine had a visibly broken handle. 2) I had to walk for blocks on a very hot evening to get a second key. I was clear when I booked that 2 people were staying so the 2nd key should have been provided at the start or at the very least brought to the apartment. 3) The fridge was exceptionally loud. I travel a lot for work and this the loudest fridge I have ever encountered and as the apartment was open plan I found it disturbed my sleep. 4) Only one side of the bed had a reading lamp and power outlet. 4) I was disappointed that the owner had no flexibility regarding checking out after 10am. My flight was at 6:30pm so we ended up having a very long wait at the airport. We were given the option of walking many blocks to their offices to leave our bags there but only if we had a ‘small amount of luggage’. While I am a fairly seasoned traveller and able to traverse the odd logistical issue that might come my way I did not feel they went out of their way to make sure we were catered for.
