Very handy for convention and exhibition centre

As new hotel. The windows can be opened which is great but the noise of the Metro trains makes that useless if you plan to relax beyond 7 am on weekdays. Tram stop right outside the hotel

good location

Pros: see above
Cons: nothing really
Location: see above
River view was very pleasing and the location was convenient. Train noise even with double glazing. There may be rooms with less noise but river view rooms are close to trains as they bend around the corner. All OK if you aren't too sensitive to noise. We were OK. No problem with the rooms. We had river views on 23rd,25th and 26th floors. Only one river view room per floor I think.

Comfortable stay

Pros: Location
Cons: Staff on check in counter could be friendlier.
Location: Tram stop right out the front, within the free tram zone, easy walk to Crown, Etihad, DFO's
We stayed here for 3 nights in March. Tram stop right out the front, within the free tram zone, easy walk to Crown, Etihad, DFO's. Comfortable bed, room was very clean although quite small. Was fine for the 2 of us. VERY noisy due to the trains and constant sirens etc outside, but if you use earplugs of a night you wont be able to hear much. Cafe downstairs and a 7Eleven on the corner, bottleshop over the road. We would stay here again.

Clean, well located but incredibly small

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for a girls weekend in Melbourne. There were three of us. The bedrooms were so small we couldn’t actually fit our luggage in the bedroom and there was only one very small bathroom. However, the hotel was spotless and in a great location. Close to trams, Etihad Stadium and south bank. The staff were all very lovely.

Great location

2 bedroom unit was small but well appointed. Bedrooms were really small and the aircon couldn’t cope with the heat coming in the big windows. Fantastic view from 21st floor and even better from the 28th floor balcony.

Very convenient location

Pros: Location to transport, shopping and entertainment venues.
This property is very convenient for public transport, shopping centres and Etihad Stadium. The staff were excellent, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. However, the 2 bedroom apartment that we had was very cramped for 4 people. We were on the 4th floor and it was very noisy due to street noise and trains. The bathroom was tiny, we recently we to Japan where they are renown for small accommodation rooms, but this bathroom was small even by their standards. Our suitcase wouldn’t fit in the bedroom.
