We got groceries at Coles at Southern Cross so didn't have far to carry them. The apartment was spotless, well equipped and bright (overlooking Etihad stadium). There is...

I returned for a second time to this apartment for the Christmas / New Year. We arrived late in the evening after an international flight was delayed. I was most grateful to the Staycentral team for accommodating the delay and managing to meet us only 5 minutes after arrival. The apartment is great, very modern and clean and has everything...

It's always nice to welcome back a returning guest; especially when they are able to enjoy so many benefits in a different apartment in a new location. I'm glad the mobile concierge was so welcoming at that time of night. They really do a great job, don't they? This apartment...

Coming in from the airport it was only a 5 minute walk from the Skybus terminal and short trip down to the supermarket at Southern Cross. There are also some good restaurants close by in King St. The apartment has nice views from bedroom and lounge across to...

Thanks for taking the time, David, to put your comments to paper. I'm hoping they will help a number of people who are looking for really nice accommodation.
