    Careful if you book here.
    Our problem with this accommodation started when we tried to checkin to our 2x 2 bedroom apartments. We had booked about 4 months in advance and were told that one of apartment bookings had been cancelled by one of us the day before we arrived and there were no other apartments available. I phoned and they advised their records did not show any cancellations. I can only assume that problem was with Empire Melbourne Apartments. They were either overbooked and we were the ones to suffer or someone cancelled our booking with out any proof of who they were. did find us another apartment after a lot of discussion and waiting on the phone. The alternative apartment was not as good but I would be wary of booking with Empire Melbourne Apartments ever again. They blamed us for something we did not do and all they would tell us about what happened to our booking was sorry. The location and apartment we had was good but our holiday was spoiled because we were not able to stay all together as we had planned.

    Good location- room is what you pay for!
    Great hotel apartment in a very convenient location. It’s walking distance to Melbourne central and queen vic markets with great Asian choices right outside. The one bedroom apartment includes a kitchenette, mini laundry, bathroom and queen bed. Great couch - very comfy. Only complaints would be the very squeaky, heavy door which didn’t feel safe especially as the lock system was strange. The wifi was also very average and dropped out heaps especially at night. Mostly clean room with easy check in and out

    Very good 8.0
    It’s in a very good location with easy access to trams. However, the 2 bedroom apt that we stayed has only one ac in the lounge and it hardly get into the room. Even we leave the door open it was not cool enough.

    Good 6.0
    Nice location, great views but not up to standard
    Great view and location, but these apartments are not top quality. For example the windows don’t completely seal when closed so the apartment is subject to a lot of street noise. The internet didn’t work at first, but they addressed it - but it was intermittently problematic after that. The pod coffee machine wasn’t functioning and we could not access the pool at 9 pm when it was advertised as closing at 10 pm. Frustrating as I chose this place based on it having a pool. Most of the time the front desk is not manned and I had no luck getting help using the contact numbers despite several attempts and long waits. Also if you have kids who can open a sliding door you might be very nervous as they could easily climb on the furniture and go over the balcony

    Everything was on point. The service was excellent, and the room just as I wanted. Thanks

    Would stay again
    Location of the hotel was great, fairly central to most things in Melbourne. The room itself was clean on appearance until I used the shower which the drain was clogged in, not a nice experience to have to unclog the drain myself so I could get out. The parking whilst great as it was on site was not suited to a medium sized car. The racks that over hung the parking space actually hit the back window and if you pull right in you can't open your boot. Maybe put on your website that parking is only suited to smaller vehicles. The front of house staff where lovely, well presented and spent the time to explain everything to us.

    Poor 2.0
    Never stay here, see similar reviews on google
    When I arrived the bedroom carpet was wet and the airconditioner filter had not been cleaned. When no one came to clean it I had to do it myself. Bedroom smelt so bad I had to sleep on the couch. At morning shower I found the tile inserts were so full of hair that water didnt drain -previous guest must have flooded bedroom. Most of the units on my floor were vacant and their toilets had dried out causing smell of raw sewage in the hall and in my unit. I requested change of room but all they did was use a fan to dry the carpet and it took 3 days before they filled the toilets in vacant rooms with water to stop the sewage smell. Dyer filter had not been emptied for months, a fire hazard. The smell in bedroom was still bad so I had to sleep with door open despite the light coming in. After 4 days they changed the linen but it was so damp that I had to dry it with a hairdryer when I woke up with cramps. It was a most uncomfortable stay.

    A Pretty Good Choice
    Very new apartment, though 1BR is quite small, but ok for 1 person. Some maintenance issues I found - toilet seat was broken, the double wardrobe had only 4 flimsy plastic hangers and no shelves or draws to store clothes and laundry light was completely missing! Otherwise apartment was well located, modern and comfortable. I particularly liked being able to log into my Netflix on the smart TV.

    Excessive bond and slow to refund
    A bond for a 2 bedroom is $500 which is excessive. It’s been more than a week and I’ll still have not received the bond back. Won’t be staying again

    Front desk service
    One man at the desk wasn’t very helpful when it came to booking a taxi to the airport for us.
