                          It was at the centre of Melbourne and allowed us to explore the City.

                          Proximity to the City Centre

                          I stayed at the Best Western on Flinders St, Melbourne. I have to say it was quite disappointing. We checked in late, around 10.30pm after being out for the day. Walking through the back blocks, and trying to find the 'black gates', then trying to get through them into a strange yard, which was almost like someone's back yard, was not a good experience. We didn't know where to go abd whilst I was trying to find my way to the hotel room I was yelled at by an automated message saying 'keep off, private property'... We then had to wait for someone who was preoccupied to tell us where to go, who then directed us to the wrong floor. Once we arrived in our room we backed onto a noisy nightclub which was less than ideal. Overall the experience was very poor, I won't be back.

                          Fantastic place and staff. The accommodation was well within easy reach of attractions and shopping. The free tram service stopped right outside, with the free bus stop a short walk. Great place to stay with the kids.

                          Easy to catch public transport. Has cafe and 7/11 nearby Room service are good Nice and secured

                          They didn't provide me the bedroom same as the picture was shown on the Booked.net, one of the bedroom was suppose to have two single beds for my children but they provide me with a queen size bed instead, and staff told me they not aware I have 2 adults and 2 children, but when I contacted other apartment in Sydney and Gold Coast they all awared how many adults and children are coming. Not very organise.

                          How incredibly large the apartment was, especially for someone travelling alone - as I was.

                          That I could have possibly had a smaller apartment for a lower price.

                          Staff were polite and responsive

                          The shower recess had dark mould in the silicone, the couch was worn and torn on the arm rests, the queen size bed was two singles pushed together and they were over-firm and there was a cupboard door falling off its hinges in the kitchenette as well as someones cigarette butt in the kitchen on arrival and after the cleaning staff had been thru after our first night I doubt we would choose to stay there again

                          The bed was soft, worn out and badly in need of replacing.

                          Great apartment for a family with all amenities. Very spacious, comfy and modern and ideal location. Reception staff were great and very keen to be of assistance. We will definitely stay again next time we are in Melbourne.

                          I liked the kitchette and larger fridge, the separate bedroom from living area and the location within Melbourne CBD.

                          It was a little loud as it is close to night life. I also felt like budget type louder travelers chose this hotel as other guests on the floor where quite loud.

                          Shower had never heard of "Exit mould" - It growled at me when I hopped in!

                          It was perfect, not to expensive, in a great location, very spacious unit and very clean and comfortable. all needs were catered for.

                          It was central for the activities we have planned for the weekend, shopping, football and the Casino.

                          Very noisy early morning by reveillers from nearby night clubs
