Loved all the technology, staff (Richard) was really helpful and friendly. The parking was super close and easy! Also cafe right next door for coffee in the morning. Also loved the double blinds to block out light and the lighting options in the apartments.

The property was very noisy, with the South Yarra Station next door and an industrial fan kicking in about every 5 minutes all night. It got to a point where we ended up leaving the main bedroom and sleeping in the twin beds as that room was quieter. That said, the property was lovely, the hosts were warm and helpful, and I would definitely not hesitate to stay again if the noise was not an issue.

Plenty of room and very comfortable bed, close to lots of shopping and transport. Enjoyed the stay in a re-furbished apartment block.
