Serviced apartments which offer the best of both worlds

Like most forms of accommodation on Southbank, Melbourne apartments and hotels offer both pros and cons. Whilst hotels offer a high level of service, excellent locations and impressive views, this often means racking up a very large final bill. For those looking to travel for business, or who are only visiting for more than a few days, such expenses are just not practical. Not only this, but hotel rooms are not always the most spacious, and can begin to feel a little suffocating; especially for prolonged stays. This is where our serviced apartments in Southbank provide a more convenient solution to staying in Melbourne. Our accommodation options are located centrally to Melbourne and offer the same amenities that you would expect from a traditional hotel; plus more. This means you can enjoy the comforts of a spacious, homely apartment, whilst staying close to the heart of things and not spending a fortune for it. Our Southbank accommodation offers the most modern, designer-interior Melbourne apartments with long term packages available.
