          modern unit. Location great to Melbourne City. Free parking was a plus.

          front desk not always in attendance when needed.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Clean and elegant, with every comfort included (free wi-fi, parking, big plasma TV...). Location is good, could be a little noisy but it's still much better than most of the places in the CBD.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The view. Nice bathroom. Free Wi Fi. Close to tram station. Friendly manager.

          Numbering of the car park was a bit confusing.

        • Family with children

          Modern apartment, clean and close to the city.

        • Family with children

          My partner and I really enjoyed our time at the Alt Tower because it was in close to the city, catching the cable car was only across the road, free carparking was a must and when we finally got the free wi fi, it was great to keep in contact with friends and to be able to google etc. I would recommend to all my family and friends when travelling to Melbourne.

          No fan in the gym and only getting access to free wi fi on our last day.

          The location and look of the modern building, the secure parking, the security of the building, the use of 4 elevators. We liked the easy access to public transport, taxis, the freeway system. All within reach of the city, hospitals, suburbs, airport, and shopping. The small well stocked supermarket located next door was a great asset, they served great coffee, breakfast and snacks.The view from 20th floor was amazing as was the peace and quiet of the complex. The windows could be opened to let in fresh air, that is a bonus! Beds were comfortable with warm and cool coverings. Extra rugs were supplied to rug up in front of the tv. Fridge is a great size, kitchen facilities were good. The manager was friendly, polite and very helpful, just need to fine tune housekeeping in small areas. The set-up of the units was useful and easy to keep tidy. I would stay there again and so would my family.

          There was no bathmat in the bathroom, bath was a tad too high for an elderly or handicapped person. No information folder for guests.

          Good location - in front of tram stop and not far from train station? Easy to get to the city. Free parking provided. Clean and new. Has dish washer, washing machine, dryer. Convenience store next door

          Walls are a bit thin - could hear next door tv and discussions. Although the place was supposed to be non smoking, we could smell cigarette smoke coming into our room from outside or somewhere. There is no free wifi as promised as it is not ready yet - only limited no of rooms have wifi. There was also an additional 2% surcharge if paying by credit card that we were not aware of - its not in the T&Cs when we booked - should be more transparent. Only one sofa - should have at least 2 sofa.

          Very nice place to stay not overly expensive and the manager I delt with was very nice and helpful. Will definitely be keeping this accommodation in mind when staying in Melbourne again. Have already recommended it to family!

          Very new apartment, clean, modern. Very convenient, close to public transport and CBD.

          1 small soap between 3 people??

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Seperate rooms. Some hotelsare 1 large space with 2 beds and a telly. This was 2 seperate rooms and a seperlate lounge and kitchen. Very spacious.

          I would have like to also be able to order room service breakfast. We had a full kitchen but when away you prefer room service breakfast rather than cooking

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          Close to city and soundwave

          We were stuffed around like no tomorrow. We booked two apartments. When we arrived only one was ready, but there was no power. We went to a music festival and went we returned the second apartment provided had only roll out beds with no furniture, as our room was given to someone else. The manager did refund our money for one apartment which was good, but was very frustrating on the night having to sleep on roll out beds with limited blankets.
