Review - Collins Mark
By Craig Davis

Magic Melbourne Collins Mark Apartments, 325 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria Overview Collins Mark Apartments are well located in a wonderful lively area of central Melbourne. The apartments are modern, stylish and fully self-contained, great for an extended business trip or intercity getaway.
