No on-site check-in

Pros: Location
Cons: Air-conditioning and notification that there is no no-site check-in or baggage storage prior to booking the hotel
There is no on-site check-in or baggage storage. You have to walk to another location several blocks away. We received no notification from the hotel that there was no on-site check-in so we had to ask staff in surrounding businesses where the check-in was and several people did not know. Extremely frustrating The apartment was very hot despite having the air-conditioning on. The air-conditioning cooled the sitting room but not the bedrooms

Close to Southern Cross and easy walk for amenties

Pros: Excellent facilities.
Cons: Nil
Location: Near train station and easy access to all of city.
Best thing about the stay was the excellent heating. Used the gym. It was small but had all you needed. Pool looked great but it was cold while I was there so I didn't make the effort even though the pool was covered and heated.

Convenient location to Southern Cross station

Pros: Location and ability to self cater. Staff very friendly and obliging.
Location: Very short walk from Southern Cross station and Spencer St shopping.
Found the apartment to be well equipped, quiet and comfortable. It suited our requirements in being self catering and supermarket is close by.

Reasonable but tired facilities

I think I would like to be fair with this review, to say that I picked this because it was cheaper than a few other options, the pictures looked nice so I thought it would be similar but actually the rooms are quite old and tired, and really could do with an update. Having said that the location is fantastic with the tram at the door on Bourke Street. What I liked: The location The bed was comfortable and clean Staff were nice ...but that's about it What I didn't like: Stained carpet, very old plastic blinds that are a bit broken, my room faced lots of other buildings, I can't be sure the blinds were private enough, the bathroom smelled very bad and the fridge was really noisy, there is also no central aircon, the aircon are the older style ones, luckily it was not very hot when I stayed, the apartment lock is also fiddley to operate. The apartment is also a very residential building, the hall way smelled of people cooking and were often people in the hall way with PJs. They also didn't clean my room after the first night, I stayed two nights. Overall I don't recommend it if you are booking a trip for business, because the ambience is just not quite right, and also if you are booking for someone else because they will surely be disappointed. But if you feel like this is the cheaper option compared to others and location matters, this is OK. I certainly had no complaints about the staff, but beware, if you are checking in after 5pm, call them in advance to arrange for keys

Close to Southern Cross Station but not in CBD

Pros: The security was good. The agent from Short stays was very helpful with giving directions for public transport and a map. Luggage storage great
Cons: The rooms and halls were plain with not much decoration and a bit depressing. The foyer and pool were all great, but I felt the room was cheaply done
Location: If you wanted to do trips out of Melbourne by train location was good. It was a bit of a walk to any of the sites around the city
Apartment was a little out of the way for visiting city activities, though there was a tram stop outside. It was a fair walk to the city and Southbank when the trams were not running
