1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Horrible. Firstly had to pick keys up at another location, wasn't a very good check-in experience. Booked apartments with friends. One was in one building, the other was a 10 minute drive at another building ( all public transport or taxi ). We stayed in room 708. Cheap uncomfortable furniture, plastic unstable chairs. Messy TV cords. Dusty balcony with no chairs to sit on, view was minimal, wedged between two buildings. Dirty dusty windows. No cakes of soap. Just the standard one day supply of shampoo / conditioner travel bottles. Pulled back bed doona to inspect sheets, found a heap of human hair on the bottom sheet, probably 10 - 15. Looked like the sheets had just been pulled up and made, not changed. Had to put fresh sheets on the bed at midnight. photographed for proof. Went down and spoke to concierge, he couldn't do anything as the rooms are privately owned and run. He suggested next time to book directly through Airbnb. Stains on mattress and mattress protector. We paid over $400 for two nights. Very disappointing.

Nice family apartment
I had read several reviews about the difficulty of check in with this apartment, so was a little hesitant, but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes the keys need to be collected from quite a way away, which if travelling with luggage and no car could be tricky, but we didnt have any problems. The apartment itself was lovely, well equipped and a great location.We had some issues with the heating (which were more our ability to troubleshoot technology) but a quick contact to reception via message, meant they called us trying to resolve. They contacted us again later in the evening, to tell us they had left a bottle of wine for us to enjoy, which I think is great service. Docklands in winter is fairly quiet with some restaurants and shops closed, but we only booked this apartment for an overnight stay, so it was perfect. We always know something is good, when we say we will return and we will. It was perfect for our stay with our family of four (sofa bed was made up and very comfortable)

Give this one a miss!
Well for a start I can't write a review for HFN Riverside Docklands Apartments as booked through as that's not where we stayed. After a very confusing and frustrating check-in process (check-in being several blocks from 231 Harbour Esplanade where we had booked), we found that we had been relocated. The whole process of driving back and forth in peak hour traffic was very trying and I can imagine how confusing and frustrating it would be for someone just off a long-haul flight with no car and no knowledge of Melbourne. I had actually tried to get in touch with the hotel to establish parking procedure etc, phoning every day for 5 days and leaving a message, only to have my call finally returned the day prior to our arrival. No mention was made of the change in location. When we finally arrived at our destination (having wasted over an hour and a half), we found our apartment on the 31st floor. The carpet in the lobby was dirty but the view from our apartment was amazing! The furniture and fittings were average. One of the bedrooms was so small that when closing the door it hit the bottom of the bed. There were no instructions for appliances and not a single teabag or coffee sachet. I had expected more at nearly $200 per night especially when check-in was not until 3pm and checkout 10.00am-(stay could be extended by 2 hours at a cost of 20% extra!) The final annoyance was that we had to go out of our way to return the key - again in heavy traffic.

High rise apartment in the middle of Melbourne
Accommodation was good, had everything in the unit so we could self-cater. The view was amazing. Getting into the car park was a bit tricky, as it's a residential block, and we had to wait half an hour for someone to bring the key to open the parking gate.
