The space

This is my mother in law's second favourite place on earth. We live just down the road, so when Nanna comes to visit, she stays in this apartment.

She loves being able to come home to a warm comfortable apartment, cook herself something to eat, have a glass of wine and look at the view. She is particularly impressed with the small supermarket and liquor on the ground floor of the same building. Despite being a small supermarket it has a large range of grocery and fresh food items, at reasonable prices.

We also get a lot of corporate clients in this apartment due to its ideal proximity to Melbourne's convention facilities, and value compared to what hotels in the area are charging.

Accommodation comprises queen bed, double fold out sofa bed (quality leather), fully equipped kitchen open plan living/dining, laundry and one bathroom. The apartment is a really good size for 2. We do have the fold out sofa bed to add some flexibility, and while it is suitable for 3 people for a few nights, we wouldn't recommend a group of 3 or 4 staying for seven days plus in the apartment.

Open plan living and master bedroom boast spectacular views over the CBD and Yarra River. Crown Casino which is directly opposite has over 50 restaurants, night clubs and entertainment, cinemas, laser skirmish and ten pin bowling.

The cbd itself is a short walk across the river, or you can catch a tram from outside the apartment. In the other direction, the trams go to famous St Kilda Beach.

Also within a ten minute walk is the upcoming South Wharf precinct with great shopping and restaurants, and a five minute walk behind the apartment is South Melbourne Village with large supermarkets, chemist (drug store) and fresh food markets.

Secure parking for one car, broadband internet and foxtel (approximately 50 channels) are included in the tariff.

We have a minimum stay of four nights unless you are booking within two weeks of your stay. Seasonal events like Formula One Grand Prix, Melbourne Cup (november), Christmas / New Year and the Australian Open in January attract a minimum stay of seven nights.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Gem Apartments overall. I was there for 6 nights and it was a comfortable stay. It was the perfect location since I was attending a conference across the street at the convention center. There was good closet space, the shower had good water pres…

Hi Hanna, Thank you for your review. We have an office in the building next door and we meet/greet all of our guests who are arriving during business hours. Normally it is Juliet. We are looking at ways to make our office location more accessible to guests, or better information in the apartment so that you can locate us. The reason we have an office on Whiteman Street is so that we can offer guests that extra personal service. Hope to see you again! Kellie

This was an amazing apartment. The view of the city is dramatic. It was beautifully furnished and very clean. The local market on the corner was quite convenient. The concierge staff were friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this apartment.

We had a lovely visit to Melbourne, staying in this apartment. The location is convenient and the apartment is clean and beautiful. There is a supermarket in the building, and a tram stop next to the front door. And our 10-month-old was thrilled to find some toys in a box under t…
