Great Melbourne stay

The hotel staff were very friendly. The room was great with a fantastic view. The apartment was an easy tram ride from Melbourne CBD. Great value for money - will definitely use again - perfect for a family stay.

Top value and space

Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit and got plenty for the price. Facilities are reasonably good though if you have multiple people staying it would be better to have the toilet separate from the bathroom. Great spot on the north side of town. Close to both Flemington and Moonee Valley race tracks with the city only a short tram ride away. On the down side it was windy during our stay and this caused more noise than expected. A bit of noise also gets through from the motorway below. Overall very satisfied and happy to come back.

Lousy Serviced Apartment

We went to Melbourne to watch the Liverpool game, and stayed at Alt Tower for 2 nights. We booked under the opening special offer 2 bedroom apartment, where there was supposedly free wi-fi and a bottle of champagne. This was written clearly in our booking. However, there was none provided. We probably could have lived without the champagne, but free wi-fi was one of the reason we picked Alt Tower. And our misery was further compounded when we discovered that the shower head in our bathroom was broken. We reported to the management that our shower head was broken and the room was missing a modem as promised, but all we got was an empty promise that something would be done. Throughout our 3 days 2 nights stay, we had to improvised when showering. Having stayed in plenty of serviced apartments all over the world, this was undoubtedly our worst experience. The building and facilities are new, but the apartment where we stayed was poorly designed as both rooms do not have direct access to windows. The apartment has both tram and train stations nearby. It was about 2 and 5 minutes walk respectively. Overall, I do not recommend this to anyone. It is better to spend a little bit more money and just stay in the Melbourne CBD area.

Friendly and comfortable

The staff were very friendly and helpful on our arrival and we settled into the apartment quickly. It was nicely furnished and comfortable. The location near the State Hockey Centre was very convenient for us as we were visiting a sporting event. The tramline to the city stops right outside the hotel. There is a great little supermarket next door but for lots of restaurants you need to go along Racecourse Rd nearby.

2 Bedroom Svc apartment

Clean, new and nicely decorated place. Though not in the town centre, it's not a problem for us as we drove. Just a short 10min drive to the city centre. Free secured parking provided in the building. This is a serviced apartment, so you can't expect it to be like hotel level's 24hr service. We reported that the shower was broken, couldn't get it fixed as it's a Sunday and repair guy was offduty. We were not provided the free wine advertised on this website deal, but perhaps because we checked-in after their official reception hours (after 6pm). But that's not a big issue, so we didn't ask either. Overall, it's good value for money. Comfortable stay. Definitely recommended !

Loved it!!

Great location. Tram stop across road, tram goes straight into Flinders St. Clean & tidy. Great views. Helpful staff. Good shower. Beds a little hard, but not bad. Would definitely stay there again.
