    Superb

    Location good size rooms

    Apart from the configuration of the beds being incorrect, despite an email from Milano confirming the beds we required, we had no issues.

    Fabulous

    Located close to the markets and Lygon Street with an easy stroll into the city. Hotel decor etc lovely.

    Had read some mixed reviews about the cleanliness of the rooms but found it ok. No ventilation in the twin room and had to open the door in the middle of the night. Plus a rattling noise somewhere that kept me awake. I'm not a great fan of heights but being on the 24th floor didn't freak me out as expected, I think due to so many other apartment blocks around.

    I was part of a group of ladies and we had 4 single beds as requested and we could cater for ourselves. If there was anything faulty, the staff were quick to remedy it. I would recommend the apartments. The security is also first class.

    i have stayed at Milano on several occasions over a period of several years. I have always found the standard of the accommodation to be consistently excellent and the location is ideal. Being on the fringe of the city, with an easy walk into the shopping precinct, Queen Victoria Markets a stones throw away and Lygon Street restaurants and movie theaters close by. what more could you ask for? Access to the apartments is uncomplicated and the pool and gym are readily accessible. Because of my experience in staying there i am now contemplating the purchase of an apartment in the building.

    Nothing identifiable..

    The reception area is quite nice, and the staff are helpful. I was upgraded to a two-bedroom apartment for free.

    Our balcony view was looking out to a demolished building covered in graphiti. The apartment has the stale smell of curry. There were pen marks on the couch. They had a 6 seater table, which took up most of the space in the living room. The tv was akwardly positioned facing away from the couch, so we had to move it. I've stayed in hundreds of hotels, and I have to say that this was by far one of the least appealing. I would not recommend staying here unless you are desperate, and have no other option. They also pre-authorized my debit card for $150 which was not described in the booking terms, and conditions. I now have to wait several business days for them to return the money to my account. I believe this should be outlined clearly in the booking conditions, so that customers will know that they will be hit up for an extra $150, and to budget for that.

    Staff are friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Douglas and Sadhana always service with a smile and with patience. Not forgetting Ousbourne. My stay of 7 days was cozy and comfortable. Thanks

    The gym

    I don't understand why this is rated 5 star as it is so not. The maintenance in the room was poor, no bathroom necessities - the sofa bed was broken. I am fine with what is classed as 3 or 4 star if that is what you get, we planned a very special get away and were extremely dissapointed . The hotel staff at the front desk were also amazed that Booked.net had this listed as a 5 star as they too know they are not. So who rates the hotels for Booked.net ? Trust is needed with whom we book with. Very dissapointing whoever was to blame.

    Superb

    The location was very handy. Central transport is very close. Walking distance to the market was great. Staff were fabulous. Our family enjoyed the gym, sauna and pool.

    Cooking facilities need improving. We had to dismantle the smoke alarms as they kept going off when using the cooking facilities. Rangehood not working.
