Positive Reviews

Ideal location for exploring Melbourne

Essentially all past guests were overjoyed with the hotel's location. Positioned in a purportedly quiet area of Carlton that is in close proximity to a large collection of restaurants, shops and attractions, the property is just 15 minutes away on foot from downtown Melbourne.

Clean and comfy apartments

On the whole, the apartments have generated really positive reviews from most former visitors. As well as being regarded as very clean and well-kept, the studios were described as cosy and well-appointed.

Reliable and free Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi service provided by the hotel was a bonus for many of those that used it during their stay. Provided to guests at no additional cost, the Wi-Fi was typically thought of as fast and reliable.

Negative Reviews

No on-site staff

Past visitors have noted that the accommodation does not operate with an on-site reception, which means that staff members are not usually on the premises. Although communication with the proprietors via phone or text was said to be swift and efficient.

Studios short of space

When taking into account the sentiments of former guests, some of the hotel's studio apartments can be on the small side. Along with the living spaces apparently being limited in terms of space, the private bathrooms in particular were labelled as cramped.

No-thrills option

If you are searching for an accommodation option that has a wealth of recreational spaces and dining options, then this property is not the place to visit – based on the feedback of previous visitors. With that said, its small and minimal nature has rarely been an issue.
