I booked this apartment as it's within walking distance to where I was working in South Melbourne. It is also directly opposite a covered tram stop for the 112, which was fantastically convenient, especially for someone who doesn't know Melbourne very well. The 112 took us everywhere I wanted to go for a weekend of shopping, eating and drinking with friends.
I had a 2-bedroom apartment on the ground floor and although it fronted Albert Road, there wasn't much traffic noise after business hours. I enjoyed my stay here immensely. Teresa, the Manager, was helpful and the apartment homely. I liked staying in a mostly residential area as opposed to a city Motel. It was also much better value for money.
I arrived late on my first night and didn't feel like cooking or going out for food. Instead, I rang the Room Service (home delivery) found in the apartment and ordered a curry off the diverse menu. They were prompt and the food was delicious.
When I did get out the next day, I found South Melbourne to have a lovely feel to it with plenty of cafes, pubs and boutique shops to browse. I just loved it! The weekend wasn't long enough. I will be back and will definitely stay here again.
