Staying at the George Powlett apartments and the staff are amazing! They are so helpful and accommodating. It's nice to have a kitchen and a clean room. Michelle at the front desk was awesome! :) recommend staying here for sure!

Booked into the apartments to get good access to the AO tennis. What a great location. 15min stroll to the tennis via the MCG. Jollimont tram station 2 min walk away. City a quick tram ride away. The apartments are somewhat dated but none the less functional. Fairly comfortable beds. Good hot shower. Good kitchenette. Good size tv. Girls on...

These apartments are slightly dated and worn- definitely in need of a few touch ups. They are reasonably priced though and provide all the basics. What makes this place is the lovely lady on reception. She allowed us to check in early, moved us to a balcony room "just because it's nicer" and was always very chatty and friendly. If...

We stayed at George Powlett Apartments, checking on 27 December, 2016 and checking out on 4 January, 2017. Overall, the experience was a very good one, highlighted by the excellent hospitality service provided by Michelle, the site manager, who showed us what real excellence in hospitality management is all about. We had a minor issue with the double bed, so...

When I booked this was the best value for money place in the district I wanted to stay (near the MCG). Choosing the lowest cost place is always a risk... Without personal experience how do you know what you're gonna get? This place had very mixed reviews, but most reviews said it was clean, and I trusted in that. And...

We(Family) had stayed at George Powlett apartment for 5 nights during the 2nd week of December 2016. Rooms were very clean and neat. We got towel, soap, shampoo and all the basic things. Receptionist was more helpful. Our stay was more pleasant and enjoyed our Melbourne trip. Only negative there is no big kitchen inside. But Overall its good value...

My friend and I stayed here for almost a week and loved it. It's super close to a tram into the city and there's a great park 2 minutes away. Michelle, at the front desk, is one of the most helpful and sweetest people I have met in my past 4 months of traveling. I would definitely stay here again.

We travelled to Melbourne for medical treatment, needing some accommodation near to the hospital. We found this older style but very quiet little place. Not up with all mod cons, but if all you need is a very comfy bed, old but clean bathroom, then there is nothing to complain about. Our room offered a mini kitchenette, a queen and...

As many reviews state, the bathroom is very dated but quite functional, although the shower head is way too low. Very cheap and well located 50m from tram and Jolimont railway station. Very plain but if you are just using for sleeping and getting ready it works fine. Very clean but well used. Comfortable bed. Towels changed daily but that...

These are very simple little studio apartment type accommodation. Don't expect anything fancy and you'll be fine. The rooms are very well equipped with everything you can need and being so accessible to the city center you are more than spoiled for choice of places to eat and sites to see. Public transport or walking to the city is incredibly...
