DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE!!! Went to check in and told they don’t have any rooms left! They had sold our room!! Left my family in the lurch at 6pm during one of the busiest nights in Melbourne.

The room was terrible. I paid my accommodation up front. The room was for 7 or more guests. When I arrived. I had to pay an upfront 200 dollar deposit for the room. 2 of the lights in the kitchen one was broken the other not working. There were 4 small towels in the room which were all damp and not properly dry. The master bedroom stunk like mouldy washing and pee. The beds were old and uncomfortable. We got no sleep at all. The room wss dirty, cushions on couch had stains and carpets were also stained and dirty. The windows and walls were filthy. The fire alarm went off at 5am for absolutely no reason. I tried contacting property about my bond after checking out, but the hotel was unreachable. All I want is my bond back although this room was definately not worth the $268 per night that I paid and I cant reach anyone. Very angry will never stay here again.

We were disgusted with the service and state of the apartment. They did not provided facilities as advertised. The cleanliness is unsatisfactory and parts of the apartment are unsafe. Our main concerns were wet used floor towels and used tea towels that were not replaced, wet crockery in the kitchen, Dirty utensils in the drawers, the broken couch is unsafe, used dirty tissues in the bedside table drawer, lack of toilet rolls and tea/ coffee making items, the tv cable was not provided, mismatched bedding that did not fit the sofa bed, dirty clothes left in clothes dryer, unflushed toilets upon arrival, unsatisfactory service.

Do not book this accommodation!!!! 5 people left with nowhere to stay! When checking in, was told to sms name to mobile number, then received a message back advising no room, overbooked! Spent the next 2-3 hours trying to find last minute accommodation in Melbourne on a Saturday night. Disgusting customer service, Wotif, you should not deal with this establishment!!!!

Small room, dirty, but close to southern cross

The room was not cleaned with dirty dishes, toenail clippings and dirty mirrors. We were then moved to a smaller second room which had a bloody tampon left in the toilet, dried blood near the toilet and the air was crusty. When given the smaller room the lady squished a bug and flung it under the fridge. We weren’t given a discount due to downsizing which is ridiculous and sheets and couch had stains. The tv was not tuned and came with no remote so programming it was near impossible. The only good thing about this place was the location in comparison to Southern Cross Station (a 2 minute walk) giving great access to public transport. Overall would not stay again.

This was my first time on Wotif. I wish I had of looked at previous reviews. I don't think I scrolled down enough. The person wasn't ready for me when I wanted to check in. I had little kids and had travelled for two hours already. It's not actually a real business managing apartments, it's a privately owned apartment. The mop was left at the door. The tv was brought up and plonked on a table, not plugged in, no remote, no aerial attached. A light globe was faulty which my 4 year was playing with. There was one bed for two kids (which I had booked) rather than two beds. They wanted $300 deposit when there's no business to get assurances from. Even Wotif couldn't get hold of the owner when I tried to complain, so how would you know you will get your deposit back? It all seemed really unprofessional to me. The photos are misleading. The apartment didn't have the same furniture of cosyness in the photos either. Very disappointed. That all said, the view was great and bed comfort was fine. My kids enjoyed it and I got over all my grumpness (well kind of)

It’s not a hotel

There is no reception & no signs to indicate you are in the right place & you are not told this in your booking. You arrive to find there’s no phone number to call to find out how to enter the building. Someone randomly sms you to say they are coming to meet you. I waited 35 mins to enter the apartment. The apartment is ok except there’s no blinds so you have no privacy. You can close the bedroom door but it’s made of coloured glass so the lights of the building opposite shine in through the glass. If they just said... Call this number on arrival it would have made a big difference.

Close to Southern Cross

Pros: Nothing I could share.
Cons: Greater attention to detail and less of laisse faire attitude to providing a good product.
Location: I have stayed several times in a variety of motels and apartments in Melbourne and this has been by far, the most disappointing.
With no front desk, and an incorrect phone contact it took me 40 minutes, mostly in a noisy corridor and on the phone to WOTIF in USA to finally gain admission. When the staff member finally arrived he gave the impression that I should take this method of entry in my stride. Registration paperwork was made difficult for no reason. Paying $AUD300 security with 3 weeks refund turnaround, was very unreasonable. This should have been made known up front. Some bathroom lights didn't work, some toiletries were empty, coffee was old and hard in the jar, and very little sugar. Carpets were badly spotted in places and a dirty toilet seat made me nervous. There was no feedback form provided. Don't think I'll be creeping into that room again..............
