HarbourView Apartment Hotel

The apartment looked tired and worn. The guys at reception were nice and I was upgraded, but I am scared to think what we could have got! The "upgraded" room was dirty, power switches etc were really greasy, I went to turn on the side table light and the switch was covered in a sticky substance! I had to get up and wash my hands!! I had to become the cleaner to stay there! Gross! The floor is badly stained, it needs to be carpet cleaned ASAP! Air con doesn't work, there are no views despite the name of the hotel. The hot water runs out quickly and the next person will freeze in the shower. It had a really old couch to watch tv on. There was no tv in the bedroom and the room had poor Wifi. For a business man, a good internet is essential. But it did have easy access to Southern Cross Station and the Skybus which is the cheapest way to get into the city from the airport. There was a tram stop outside, and the hotel is in the free tram zone.

Given the amount of money we paid and compared to other apartments we have stayed at in the city we were very disappointed. The decor in our room needs a major overhaul. The lounge suite is very uncomfortable and unacceptable. The carpet in places is very tatty. The bathroom also needs some attention. On the upside, good location, quick and efficient check in.

A short walk from Southern Cross station, Edihad Stadium and west Melbourne shops and eateries. Comfortable and clean, good basic apartment style accommodation. $130 pn. you get a two bed, one bath, kitchenette and a small balcony. The down side is the the traffic noise is pretty full on. Rate √√√

2 bedroom apartment with bathroom and kitchenette. Little balcony with good view. Trams run past the hotel towards Southern Cross Station. Close to supermarket, walking distance to Bourke Street and Etihad Stadim. Front reception staff friendly and very helpful. Will be staying there again as it is affordable and clean,

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff member at check in was lovely. I received an upgrade to a larger room despite being on my own.. While the view wasn't amazing the room was comfortable and clean. The location was pretty convenient, just a short walk from southern cross station. Will recommend to friends and will be back!

We recently stayed overnight at Harbour View and were a little disappointed. Whilst the hotel was cheap it was certainly a 'get what you pay for' scenario. The staff were pleasant, the foyer was dingy, the lifts were dirty and the overall picture was less than appealing. Our room was ok but could have benefited from a good vacuum. The 'view' was less than impressive. Whilst we didn't expect a lot for our money we were left a little disappointed.

My teenage children and I went to Melbourne for a weeks holiday, the reception staff were welcoming and pleasant. The 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in was clean, well set out. It was a little dated, but that did not deter from anything. Tram stops were directly out the door of the building and it is within the free tram zone for the city, which is incredibly handy. Walking distance (2 blocks) from southern cross station, gr at for the a sky bus and travel to country Victoria. There is wifi for the rooms, however it didn't work incredibly well, and this with 2 teenagers was a little bit of an issue, but not huge at all. All in all a very pleasant stay and I would definitely stay there again.

Location is good as it is easily accessible to different parts of melbourne. Tram station is just outside the apartment. Condition of the apartment itself was alright, a little worn out but nothing too bad. Had to pay for parking (AUD20) and that is if they have available slots, if not have to find street parking which costs more. Nothing really memorable, but a good place to base in Melbourne though.

I stayed with my two grand daughters last night. I booked a one bedroom unit and was upgraded to a two bedroom for no extra charge. Very well set up, nice kitchen and facilities. Large Queen in the main bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom. Found everything working and in good order, very clean with air conditioning and a balcony. Within walking distance of Southern Cross Railstation and very quiet.

Harbour view apartments are great. My room had an unchallenged view of Docklands harbour. Service was as great as the views and would stay again. The rooms were clean and undamaged despite other reviews saying so. Rooms are also not outdated.
