family weekend in the city

Decided to have a weekend in the city, Breakfree is in a great location, especially if having a weekend shopping, visiting the art gallery or going to the Regent Theatre. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, great for the kids, and it was a lot cheaper than staying in a hotel room. Nice to have your own space especially with teens. Would recommend.

Family weekend in the city

Great location for a weekend in the city, right in the middle of the shopping area, short walk to the Regent Theatre and very easy access to museum, art galleries and other city attractions. Was great to have a 2 room apartment with the teens, and the rate was much less than a hotel. Would recommend for anyone coming into the city particularly families.

The next time I go to Melbourne I would definitely choose to stay at the Break Free on Collins. In terms of location it was excellent and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. (The price per night for the hotel is reflective of it's central position - walking distance to most of the major attractions in Melbourne) My family had a two bedroom apartment and it was clean, neat and tidy, had an integrated washer/dryer as well as dishwasher and all amenities functioned and the beds were comfortable. The reception staff were all very friendly and very helpful with any queries that we had as well as let us stow our luggage securely (after checking out) until it was time for us to depart. Having said that I would definitely not consider this hotel as a definite 4 star hotel, it is a very high 3 star: maybe very low 4 star hotel. The reason is that the apartment that we had was a little worn out and tired looking with a few items needing to be fixed (such as hot water tap falling off every time we had a shower). All of these things are quite easily fixed and it wouldn't cost a lot.

Great place to stay

Fantastic location - right in the centre of the city. Good value for money for a place which provides basic, though more than adequate, apartments.

Great Place to Stay

Only wish I was staying longer As to the guests who insisted on dumping bags of takeaway food rubbish next to the lifts? Do you know what a rubbish bin is?

Awesome trip away

This hotel was fantastic to stay at. Staff very friendly and healthy and location is excellent. the only complaint I would have prob is the carpets and maintenance of the room could be improved, carpet stained and an update would make this hotel even more desirable. Also I think that the internet should be included in the hotel price. Other than that I would stay at this hotel again.

Girls weekend

The location of the motel was great, minutes away from the theatre we were attending and the mall. The room had a few issues, toilet not working properly, tap came off in my hand, no t-towels and no plug for the kitchen sink, otherwise the room satisfied our needs, Staff very pleasant to deal with, entrance clean and appealing. Our room faced Swanston St so noisy in the late evenings but expected that. Would stay again and recommend the place for the positives of the stay.

Lion King Stay

Darling Towers is in a really great location. Just two minute walk to Regent Theatre, taxi's, The Block Arcade and Elizabeth, Flinders, Swanson Streets. The room was clean but shabby. The double bed was the worst I've ever slept in. We could feel every spring. Our room faced Collins Street so we could hear all the traffic but it wasn't unbearable. The staff were very nice and helpful. It was a really good price so we accepted the down sides as you get what you pay for :)

Great location

The location was great and the staff most helpful. Unfortunately we were placed on the 10th floor facing a major intersection and the windows and doors had no double glazing. Consequently the noise from trams crossing and people kept us awake most of the night.
