These apartments really were a pleasure to stay at with awesome views back to the city. Very clean and would definitely use these guys again. Price was very reasonable for the location and not being a local was surprised that trams around city are free....

We booked 3 double rooms for our recent stay and this location was superb. Rooms were large, plenty of space and all facilities available. Only issue on our stay was the trouble they were having with the lifts. The first night it was quite noisy through the night, but this was rectified on the second and third night. I would...

We stayed for two nights in a one bedroom apartment. The room and facilities were clean and in good condition. The staff were friendly. The location was fantastic with easy access to the city via the free team and perfect views over the water. We had a great stay and would happily return. One of the lifts was out of...

We have stayed here a few times over the years and have found the apartments to be very nice although perhaps showing some signs of wear and tear. We had a 3 bedroom apartment over New Year and had an amazing view of the fireworks which was very special. The fellow at reception, Raj, was extremely helpful and went out...

The location of these apartments is great - just a short tram ride or not a bad walk into the CBD. Very hand for Ethiad Stadium. There are restaurants nearby in a precinct that hasnt really quite taken off to its full potential. The apartment itself we stayed in was ok. We had a good location on the 14th floor,...
