Nice Family Apartment
We stayed for 3 nights to end our trip to New Zealand and Australia. The location is close by to our relative. There were a few restaurants in a short walking distance. Rooms were clean, kitchen cooking wares and utensils were good, The only downside was they don’t provide cleaning service for short stay, thus no refill of bath amenities.

If you don't drive, would be way better
Because this is a service apartment, don't expect any housekeeping at all during your stay. No, they won't come into unit every morning to clean the garbage or change your towels (which was fine for us). Me and my family (total of 5pax) booked the 3 bedroom suite and it was really spacious. But what I was disapointed about this place and why I given a 1 star for their service is because after I have booked the place (usually for apartments they will send us an email giving better instructions if the actual location is not where we check in; or instructions on parking). So I was the contact person for booking the place and driving my family. I dropped off my family and luggages at the building and ask them to let me know where I should park. FIRST of all, the check in is not where our building is. The conceige ask us to dial 2 with their phone so someone would pick up and give us instructions. My sister has been told to wait for the check in guy in front of their parking which you are not able to park there at all. In short, it was a mess. No intructions were given on Check Out either. I went to the conceige the night before and the conceige told me I can either drop off everything with them, or go to their office (which I don't know where). So when we left, I told my sister to drop it off at the conceige in our bldg, but then they said no, we have to check out at their office. While at the office they said they gave us a paper on check out when we check in, NOPE!!!!

Check In is an Absolute Shambles!!
I had high expectations for this apartment due to the reviews being so good. The location is fantastic and the apartment building and apartment itself was very nice, modern and a great size. HOWEVER I wouldn't recommend it or stay again due to a few negatives, primarily the staff and check in fiasco. There are plenty of other similar apartments nearby with much better service and room quality. When you arrive at reception there is a desk with no one manning it, despite someone calling the day before to ask what time we'd be arriving. In 3 days I saw the concierge guy there a couple of times. You have to make a call to the office across the road and hang around for someone to come over and check you in. After 20 minutes someone finally showed up (we noticed annoyed people in the same boat throughout our stay) and took us up to the room and came INTO the room to check us in, take our details and payment using a handheld card machine. I also had to write out my card details on a piece of paper for no apparent reason. The room smelt of smoke due to the stupid rule that you can't smoke inside but you can on the balcony "so long as the door is shut"...which people clearly don't adhere to. Just make the whole thing non smoking. Also we had a light fixture mixing and scuff marks all over the walls. The headboard had suspicious bodily fluids on and the shower had pathetic pressure with only a few of the spouts actually spraying anything. To check out we had to go across the road.

Accommodation expectations were met.
We had a very pleasant stay on a previous trip and decided to try MMSA again but our reservation this time was for a cheaper deal than where we stayed before. Only making booking my husband read some bad reviews, so we were concerned. Our fears were unfounded. I arrived before my husband and was nervous about asking to see the apartment first but Remy went the extra mile and put my fears to rest. His manner was polite and professional, patient, informative and even kind. [I've experienced much more indifference at other - more expensive venues] Remy you're all class 10/10 - you exceeded expectations, Thank you. The accommodation was adequate, not outstanding. Met minimum expectations. We were out of apt all-day every-day for the week. No view as such because the pool atrium obscured the view on that floor but the room was not dark and actually had a level of privacy from the atrium - otherwise would've been overlooked by the building right across. The facilities: kitchen / washing, laundry, ironing were all adequate and worked even though the bathroom is very tightly designed. The shower stall did not have mould which can be an issue in these newer, very cheaply built high-rises that have no ventilation/ extractor fans. The air conditioning in the lounge was efficient and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The in-building parking was convenient and more affordable than similar venues in the area ($25.50 instead of $30/ a day). Adequate for what we paid.

Location, convenience & apartment were great!
On arrival, it was confusing as there was no one in attendance and we had to wait 30 minutes for help. We were shown the apartment which was really nice, spacious with a great view. Then we were asked to put a Deposit down for security and sign papers that we hadn't seen or heard about. More confusion! On inspection of the apartment we discovered the broken blinds, cupboard door and just a general lack of maintenance and care. Two hours later we were shifted to another apartment with great blinds etc. so far we hadn't had a good start to our short holiday. The apartment is in an ideal location with great access to shops cafes and the casino. Walking distance to the Melbourne free tram service and close to the train stations. I would recommend the apartment as it was a very comfortable for our party of six females, two bathrooms and three bedrooms made it perfect for us. Checking out had issues as there wasn't enough information about the process. Some work needs to be done in this area to make the guests stay hassle free and more enjoyable.
