And the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre is a short walk, just across Clarendon Street, opposite the Casino.

There are so many things of interest in or very close to Southbank such as Melbourne Aquarium, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square (Fed Square), Young & Jackson Hotel, St Andrews Cathedral, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Victorian Arts Centre.

You can also find Telstra Dome, Southern Cross Station, the Rialto Building & Stock Exchange, and the Melbourne Convention Centre. The Free City Circle Tram will take you right around the city. Along the way you can stop off at Queen Victoria Market and visit many famous Melbourne shopping locations.

If you want to go further field, you can take a tram to St Kilda (15 mins), Port Melbourne (10 mins), Bridge Road shopping strip (5 mins) or Chapel Street shopping & restaurant strip (20 mins). And CityLink is on your doorstep, connecting you with all major freeways out of the city.

And if you want to stay in, maybe the kids are sleeping, there is a wide range of DVD's in the apartment, relax on the balcony, or sit on the couch with a great coffee from the automatic coffee machine provided.

About Platinum Apartments Reservations

We are a family business who believe it's the simple things that count. We are genuine people who care and go out of way to accommodate our guests needs.

Having a background as a nurse and midwife I have always nurtured and cared about people from all walks of life. I treat people with respect and, have always cared about how people feel.

I am OCD about hygiene and cleanliness and there is no room for movement here - things must be cleaned correctly!

I truly want people to experience a good time when in Melbourne, we are customer centric and real.

Here is a handy hint: If in doubt, one thing I have learnt - is to check people out!

Most people have a history on the internet. Look at how deep their history goes on social media. Facebook is a good place to start, then look at Instagram, LinkedIn, google etc... Is it only a few posts, or is it years of history? Read what they talk about or how they respond to their friends. It's hard to make up years of history. Ring and speak to them - do they answer the phone or how do they respond to emails.

Platinum Apartments Reservations purchased this apartment in 2007

What a fantastic family weekend away it had everything that we needed to enjoy our time in the city. The location was in walking distance to all the main attractions that Melbourne has to offer. The apartment certainly caters for family's from the spacious rooms for the girls to share to the open plan living and your very own private car space. The heated pool was certainly a great way to unwind after exploring the sights of the city.

Fantastic apartment. Located centrally to everything in Melbourne.

Perfect for travelling with the kids. They supplied books, toys, dvds, high chair amongst many other items that just made life so much easier & our luggage lighter.

Highly recommend.

Views and location are excellent. But that's all. The sofa bed was broken with slats snapped clean in half and the mattress was very dirty. Unable to be used as a bed or a sofa. The "trundle" mattress advertised is actually just a thin mattress on the floor. The light in the lounge was broken, when we told the agent about it she asked why we hadn't changed the globes ourselves? The "spacious" balcony is tiny, you definitely couldn't fit more than one person out there at a time and no furniture. There is only a 2.5 seater couch for an apartment that is meant for 6 adults maximum. So majority of your party will be sitting on a dining room chair. I slept on a mattress on the lounge room floor one night as the sofa bed was broken and the "trundle" was just a mattress on the floor. The next night I went to a nice hotel down the road.

Owner's Response: Amanda we are sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your stay. This is the first negative review we have received, we note your review and Rose’s review are linked from the same group of ladies that stayed. It is unfortunate that the first we heard of any issues was after 2 nights into your stay. Thank you for advising us about the broken sofa bed, we were unaware this was broken and have replaced it. Our apartment listing does outline the sofa size and chairs available, and the photos are all actual so we are surprised to receive the comments about the sofa size however we understand you were not the person that actually booked the apartment or saw any details before you arrived. We received a call from your friend Rose after 2 nights at the apartment advising us that the sofa bed was broken. When I spoke with Rose on the phone she said she said you were moving to a hotel regardless as you wanted your own room. The trundle mattress mentioned on our listing states “a trundle mattress underneath, which is a squeeze but useful if you need the extra bed” so recommended really for small children. However as mentioned, this the first time we have ever had such a situation and are disappointed that the guests did not contact us upon check in (as mentioned in our apartment information) so that we could try to assist. We would not have been able to resolve your issue of wanting separate spaces (‘bedrooms’) for 5 adults when it clearly states it is a 3 bedroom apartment.
