"Very average and over priced!!"
The room was bland and boring, nothing like pictures. Guys at the front desk were no help what so ever. Well over priced and definitely not 5 star, it's about 3 star. I wouldn't recommend this for the price.
"Poor service attitude and not well cleaned apartment."
They were several issues to stay in StayCentral in Southbank apartment(whiteman street). . We were late for about 20 minutes due to transportation and raining. It is out of our control and it should not be our fault. The person just took off without leave any trace. That left four of us soaked in the rain with no clue what to do in a foreign country. It is a hostile experience to deal with the situation. . Upon arrival, there are quite a few issues. - the two bed rooms and bath rooms were freeze to death with no heater or what so ever. Two ladies were complaining about it and sneezed on their noses. - the sliding door glasses facing the downtown of Melbourne were dirty with hand image on it. - the kitchen fan filter was greasy and oily not to mention the challenge how to operate it. As a matter of fact, a simple instructions will solve lots of grieve. - one of the bath room toilet is filthy and dirty with urine accumulation. We have to thoroughly clean it before using it. - There was no paper tower in the kitchen so we have to use toilet paper to substitute it. The svc manager insisted they were there. But we could not locate it until he brought one next day. - The complementary tea bags and shower soaps were not sufficiently provided( I have been told that there is a mini-mart store at the corner of apartment we can purchase extra from there)! - kitchen burners were not functioning properly. We have to use matches to fire it up, but we could not locate matches until next day the svc mgr located them magically! - great location though(the only positive experience)! The svc mgr was defensive and keep explaining(arguing) about their situations not customer issues.
Back on 13/09/2017 my husband, myself and our friends resided at Melbourne short stay apartment in Whiteman Street. We found it convenient to The Crown, trams and an IGA. The other upside for us was we were booked to go on the Tram Restaurant and the stop was right out front. And being a cold night it was great as we didn't have far to get home. The down side I found was even though we were 25 floors up we could still hear all the traffic below as well as screaming from people. In the early hours of the morning you could hear the traffic and it would start very early. There is no double glazing on windows but that might be due to it being an older apartment building. All in all it wasn't a bad stay.
"Cute and well equipped apartment"
The view from the bedroom was amazing. Kitchen was well equipped. The portable heater kept me warm in the apartment. Worth the stay i would say and reasonable price Everything else is great and comfy :)
"Our stay at Short Stay Apartments on Whiteman Street"
I love staying at the Short Stay Apartments on Whiteman Street as the building is close to many places. The tram stops are out the front of the building, the Crown Casino is across the road and the Apartments have an IGA right next door which means you're not eating hotel food but able to cook your own. But most importantly, it is across the road from the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre if you are attending a Trade Show or Conference.
