Only a block from queen Vic market. Tram stop right outside. Helpful staff. Reasonably priced.
Pool and gym in building next door. Had to pull out microwave to plug in kettle and toaster.
Location Staff were very helpful & approachable Towels were great Shower was good Simple but all we needed Would stay again and recommend to my "non-frills" friends We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Arrow on Swanston played a part in that as well as great tennis and great city
Toaster in room 3713 Toilet didn't flush easily Need an ice tray in the freezer
Close to Queen Victoria Market and Lygon Street. Friendly easy service.
Proximity to everything in melb cbd
clean and tidy tram stop at the door Easy to walk into city centre
did not get the room configuration I specifically requested
The apartments were really close to everything, Lygon Street, Victoria Markets & the tram stop was right out the front.
Comfortable bed and ok gym facilities..
Apartments across the lane were way to noisy at night and shower takes about 5 minutes to heat up.
Fantastic value for money. A short walk from the center of the city. Only a couple of hundred metres from Melbourne Central Station. Could not fault it.
The location was great. There was alot of parking available. The 5 min parking out front made check in/out easy. The apartment was clean, kitchen & bathroom fairly modern & soft furnishings were attractive & comfortable. Good basic accomodation. Lady on Monday reception was lovely. Pleased to arrive with the fold out couch made up & clean apartment.
The 'balcony' was revolting, just a platform for the aircon. The door on the balcony fell off! My husband fixed it. The view of the garbage man urinating in the alley way was less than desireable. The kitchen had no oven & needed a few more basics like mugs for hot drinks. The carpark was in a seperate building, not convenient, especially when moving little children & luggage around. Pool, which was a major reason for us choosing Arrow, was in another building. with the student accomodation. We didnt bother going. With little kids it wasnt conveniant & we felt uncomfortable about it & unsure about whether the facilities would be appropriate. Man on weekend reception was rude & not very helpful.
Good location and value for money. Helpful staff. Good air conditioners .
Could've had more cooking utensils... I didn't realise there wasn't going to be a dishwasher!
Location was good.
Based on the photos on the website I was expecting a much bigger kitchen with stove and dishwasher, dining table and six chairs. Instead we got a tiny kitchen w microwave and fridge only, tiny table squashed up against the wall with only three chairs. It was a bit of a shock as I was going to cook Xmas dinner there - not possible!
The room was not clean - there was, for example, hair on the floor of the shower.
Location was ideal.
Bad reception service from front desk.
Location walking distance to Melb Uni.
Was put on 1st floor and facing backlane. Workers were demantling furniture fittings of nearby building and throwing into waiting lorry. Was very noisy during the mornings during our stay.
Close to city. Clean, neat, for the most part.
I booked what I thought was a 2 bed apartment, but it was 2 separate rooms 15m apart. Two of my chn. had to be in a separate apartment. The room at the rear of the hotel had a very strange smell in there, luckily we were out and about most of the time.
location, parking facility
Apartment very small and cramped. not close to shops
Being able to move to a different room that was very quiet.
The 6th floor room was noisy from the street noise and the flapping of the plastic on the building opposite.
