“A perfect spot for exploring St Kilda”
We stayed last week at Irwell St and couldn't have been happier with the location, security and facilities. The complex front door is about 70 metres directly from acland St, the thriving heart of St Kilda, which is the perfect compromise as it's so near to the action but enough to skip the noise. The apartment itself was spotless and modern with plenty of luxurious touches, ideal for a couple or solo traveler happy to pay for comfort. At approx $90 pp per night for the two of us it was a great deal. I'm happy to recommend Espresso apartments and considering they're all over Melbourne I know we will stay with them when we next return to this magic city.
“Just like home, only better!”
Just got back from a great week in Melbourne for business where I stayed at the St. Kilda Irwell location of the Espresso apartments. Not only was the apartment clean, well stocked and centrally located but the check in and out process was incredibly smooth and the Espresso team members, both during business hours and off time, were fantastic and always helpful. One thing to note: Make sure you verify if you have parking with the apartment because parking is a chore in St. Kilda (I got a fine unfortunately) and the intranet is a bit weak in that running multiple devices on it is a struggle. Other than that, way better than home because I don't have to clean it. :)
“Comfortable and convenient”
Great location and very comfortable. Parking good, though initially difficult to access (none of the signs on the parking spots in the carpark were for our apartment - turns out one of the signs was incorrect). Check-in was a bit difficult too - needed to call up on the phone and couldn't get through for 1.5 hours. However, once checked in and parked, we had a terrific tikme.
“Good location for exploring St Kilda”
The unit was clean and suited our needs well. The furnishings and facilities such as coffee machine, dryer and kitchenette were nice added extras. The bed was extremely comfortable. The only downside of the location was the noise in the evenings. We stayed from Thursday night through to Monday and every night we were awoken with people/ backpackers yahooing, yelling or singing at all hours, this along with the tram that runs along the street out the front don't make for a peaceful night. Loved the unit but wouldn't stay again because of the regular noise.
“This is a comfortable apartment in a funky but fun neighborhood”
Digital photos clean up the real world but the apartment (though not as pristine as the photo might be read to imply) was in good condition and included all the amenities one could want. A thoughtful touch was a Nespresso machine that was stocked with what happens to be my favorite flavor pod. I arrived on Easter Sunday and was somewhat concerned with the late night noise from the pub in the building, and even more concerned when it recurred on Monday night, not realizing that many aussies take that as a four-day weekend. Noise was then not an issue until the weekend, and it did trail off by 1am. There's also the tram passing by but that becomes white noise. Older people need to appreciate that St. Kilda is a hipster neighborhood, but it is wonderful to have acland Street with its cafes and bakeries and the grocery stores a block away, and still more wonderful to be able to walk another two blocks to the beach. The tram stop is one block away and took me all through the center of Melbourne to the university where I was a visiting academic in about 40 minutes. The place seems well managed; the only other deficiency was that I was without a second set of keys for a week because they had been taken by the previous renter in error. I did not use the cleaning service. In general the management was fine and I really have no serious complaints about the apartment. It will be part of my very nice memories of my month in Oz.
Great location, good sized unit, well fitted out kitchen & laundry. All rooms clean & tidy. Only issue cafe/ bar downstairs very noisey if on lower floors. Term & conditions state can't have loud party in rooms but the cafe dowstairs is like having Pub outside your bedroom.
Don't ever stay there horrible, no sleep at all noisey worst weekend ever.

“not even clean when we arrived”
When we arrived at the apartment there was a spare set of keys missing and stale milk left in a cupboard. Mugs, glasses and plates were also dirty. We expected more for what we paid!

Our cleaners have received this feedback and will be more thorough . Our support team is also on hand to contact should you have required the spare keys as a priority.

“Fantasic apartment very central stayed Feb/March/April 2012”
We had a great stay in this apartment, It is very central to the town (2min walk) and the beach (5 min walk). The apartment is very clean and exactly like the pictures on the website. The bed was very comfortable, kitchen had everything that you could need. We did have a few problems with internet but this was dealt with in a timely and efficent manner. I would recommend this apartment to anyone..perfect. Only thing to remember is it can be noisy in the mornings due to being next to main road but small price to pay for such a great stay
