4/10 Fair

Very average - poorly maintained and worn out
It is a very average stay. The Annex building was very poorly maintained, lift wasnt working to our floor, interiors were worn out. 2-star place at best.

4/10 Fair

first room they gave me wasn't cleaned before i arrived. had to call up reception and they moved me to another room not the best start but the new room was on the third floor and a sign on the elevator told me that it only went to the second and from there i had to go up the fire escape and and get to my room that way. the room was large and spacious but carpets had stains one of the window blinds was missing and the walls had several hole that where they have been haphazardly patch over. ultimately a massive disappointment

4/10 Fair

Comfortable but a little rundown with poor service
Had a toilet that was running and dripping in the cistern the entire 5 night stay despite repeated requests to reception. General condition of the place was a little rundown and no housekeeping the entire stay. On the positive, my apartment had a full kitchen, very large living area for the price and the location was great for the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

8/10 Very good

The room was good but could do with thicker glass or some sort of sound barrier to reduce noise of trains. Other then that I really enjoyed my stay for the price I paid.
