It was close to cafes and publishers transport. But check in was a run around. With no communication from owner. Finally spoke to someone an instead of a concierge to get key had to go to a 7-11 who was no help on where to go. The air bed went flat after two days contacted owner with no reply! A lot of money for such a small apartment. Pool was out of order. And no parking!!

loved the facilities in the building - pool, climbing wall, gardens etc were all great. The apartment was a little smaller than I thought, but it was still fine for the four of us.

View and location

Pros: The view of the city was great. Enough warm blankets for a winter night stay. The pool facilities were great for the kids
Cons: Communication when checking in, including updated phone numbers for contactable staff. Communicate early check if no longer availible
Location: Convenient with shops and public transport if you know the tram routes
Communication needs to be clear as to where you check in. Also it needs to specify that there is no reception and you need to contact staff when you arrive, no matter the time of day you arrive to check in. Property comes with what is needed for a short stay. The walls are dirty and the vacuum stinks (this hasn't been cleaned out for a long time). Even though we were told via email that we could check in by 11 am - the property wasn't ready for us. The cleaner was still cleaning at 2pm on arrival. We left for get a few things from the shop and on return at 3pm the cleaner had just left. The carpet didn't look like it had been vacuumed and the walls had drink splatters on the wall by the door when entering the property

Central to everything.

Close to every imaginable amenity. Minutes away from Spithern Cross and Etihad. Short walk to Crown and Southbank. Clean, easily accessible. Very quiet. 4/5 comfort for two largish adults.
