This stylish, comfortable apartment was well situated near parks, which was helpful for walking our dog. Staff were very kind and organised more accomodation for our teenagers in a nearby room. Walking distance to city. Katy

Overall the property was very good. Unfortunately I was given the wrong code for the keysafe. I was also disappointed that they tried to charge me an additional $15 at checkout for parking when there had been no mention of this charge beforehand.

East Melb Getaway
We stayed for the AFL Grand Final weekend. Our boutique apartment was on the top floor with large windows allowing the westerly sun to warm the room. We had uninterrupted views over the adjacent park and further towards the city. The apartment was well equipped for a couple and was walking distance from “The G” and restaurants along Wellington St. Noise from the street can be heard and the window rattled with the outside wind. We still enjoyed our stay.

Just needed a place to stay for the Friday night football and it was fine. A little dated but it had everything that a guy needs.
