Fantastic place to stay! We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 17th floor looking towards docklands, victoria harbour and out to St Kilda. Apartment was very clean and modern and had everything you would need to cook and prepare meals. There are 2 free city tram stops across the road and southern cross station is only couple of stops...

No doubt, this is the best serviced apartments I ever stayed in. Absolutely perfect, everything is clean and tidy, and anything you would need at home. Even two large umbrellas (so much needed in Melbourne) were provided. It really feels like at home. Thank you Paul and Belinda very much. Will definitely call in again when I need to stay...

Our company booked an apartment here for PAX Australia and had a wonderful time. Paul and Belinda are amazing hosts, and the property is gorgeous -- spacious, lots of natural light, great views, and excellent location. Having our own kitchen and washer/dryer made the place feel like home, rather than a hotel. We hope to stay here again next year!

Hello Sutowato We agree that we are located in a great location and close to the Convention Centre and CBD. Belinda does put a lot of effort in trying to make the apartments a home away from home.
