Amazing place to stay

Super friendly staff who went above and beyond to make sure we had an awesome weekend.
... can't think of anything.

Only there for one night. was all that I needed

Annie was so very helpful and cheerful as was her son who booked me in he night before. Felt like home.

Close to everything, comfortable and inviting

This was a little gem in Essendon, close enough to shops to walk to. Close to restuarants, close to public transport, close to a supermarket. We enjoyed our stay here. Very clean, comfortable and warm. The staff are amazing, very welcoming.
I thought the pillows were a little too soft, but that's just me. Minor for a very nice stay.

Seven night stay self contained apartment in great location

The bed was comfortable and pillow choices were great. Staff were very friendly and helpful
it's a bit on the older side. Décor and flooring could use an update. Bathroom renovation would be great. It was rather small.

Nice place to stay in a handy location.

Friendly staff and well appointed kitchen. Had almost everything you need.
No can opener.

Short Stay excellence

The apartment was clean and very comfortable and met my needs on this trip to the city.
The bathroom layout and design having to almost step over the toilet to get into the bath.

Great location

Location was great. The apartment was perfect.
No tissues, teapot or coffee plunger.

Like the location but not the services

Really good location. Close to good places to eat and a supermarket. Has off street parking. easy to get to from airport.
The shower is hopeless. Hot water cuts out often. The carpeted floor REALLY needs cleaning. My socks and/or bare feet were filthy after a short period without shoes.

Fantastic appartment in a great location!!

We stayed here on the last night of our holiday in Victoria and were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a fantastic 2 bedroom apartment with secure underground car park. The tastefully furnished apartment was very spacious and clean with excellent cooking facities. Our hostess, Annie, was very friendly and informative. The location is excellent! It was only about half an hour's drive to St Kilda where we had our dinner and only about 10 minutes to our car rental depot in Tullamarine. Coles supermarket which opens till midnight is only about 600 metres down the road and there are plently of eating places nearby. All in all, we had a fantastic stay and would certainly choose Essendon Appartments if we ever go to Melbourne again!!

Good Stay at a reasonable price

The apartment was a good size for one person, there are restaurants and shops close by to stack up on things for my stay.
The bath/shower was a little slippery in the morning.

Location, friendly staff, cleanliness
Pillows uncomfortable but you can't please everyone????????

We just spent 6 nights in the 2 bedroom apartment a family of 4, we couldn't fault this accommodation. It was close to public transport, shops and restaurants. The apartment was modern, clean had its own washer/dryer and dishwasher. Anne at reception was great and really helpful.I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this accommodation to family and friends.
