We recently spent the weekend at the Elizabeth St apartment. When booking the apartment we knew parking was an additional fee, however with only a guide from Amelia 'there is parking around the whole block' we ended up paying $130 for less than 24 hours. Needless to say, the weekend cost us more in parking than accommodation. We were left... More

Rhani, I think perhaps you should take more care when booking via Expedia/Hotels.com we very clearly advertise that our Nova property has no car parking available, there is no additional charge because it is not a service we are able to provide. If a guest chooses to bring a car to an inner city apartment that has advertises it has... More

We found this to be everything we wanted and more. Stayed as two couples which was more than comfortable. We were surprised that the kitchen was well stocked but as we ate out every meal we didn't use too much. Good experience checking in and with payment. Aircon was a little noisy. Fantastic location with amazing restaurants close by. Had... More

Better than average but less than "very f good". Location: excellent. Design: excellent. Self-check-in: excellent. Cleanliness, linen, inclusions, views: excellent. But... On the first night we didn't find the heater (a note would have been helpful). And even when we did find it, even with the air con on as well it was still freezing. I slept in many layers... More

Stayed for a night at this apartment. As we arrived early in the morning, we booked an extra night to ensure my family could check in early and wash up. As this is an unattended apartment (ie no check in counter), the keys were supposed to be left at the mailbox at the entrance. Unfortunately when we arrived, it wasn't... More

Apartments are unattended, so someone has to meet you when you first arrive. Ours came within 5 minutes. The minuscule heater is inadequate and does not heat the room in winter. There is no permanent AC, just a portable unit that looks like it needs to vent through the sliding doors in summer. We ran out of hot water -... More

Absolutely gorgeous room, lovely views and in an excellent location. Has a homely feel to it and has everything you need for a relaxed stay, everything from washing machines, to tumble dryers to cooking oils and make up remover. Would definitely recommend. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Melbourne on our next trip.

About Melbourne Apartments is a boutique accommodation business, supplying AAA Tourism Four **** Star rated modern, spacious, luxurious One and Two Bedroom self-contained apartments to accommodate both the corporate and leisure traveler to Melbourne. About Melbourne Apartments are located in the east "Paris End" of Melbourne CBD, in a residential building designed by renowned architecture firm Daryl Jackson. The building is located in Liverpool Street, a lane way which runs between Bourke and Little Bourke Streets (parallel with and in-between Exhibition and Spring Streets). Our apartments are located in the heart of Melbournes' theatre district in between Her Majesty's Theatre and Princess Theatre, near China Town, major Bourke Street tram stops and Parliament Train Station, and are located a short tram or train ride from Melbourne's best attractions, renowned shopping precincts, bars and restaurants. We are within easy walking distance to Melbournes' sporting precinct Rod Laver Arena, MCG, AAMI Park and Federation Square and only a quick tram ride (free on the City Circle tram) to Etihaad Stadium and Docklands, Southbank and the Crown Promenade or Queen Victoria Market, St Kilda beach, or the Brunswick/Lygon/Chapel Street dining/shopping precincts. You could pamper yourself and relax at one of the salons or day spas within metres from our front door, or indulge at one of the nearby award-winning cafes, restaurants or bars, perhaps Gingerboy or Longrain next door, or the infamous Pelligrinis, George Calombaris' Press Club, or MoVida! Or you can simply walk to nearby Fitzroy gardens for a 'barefoot in the park' experience! Our inner-city location offers a luxurious boutique accommodation alternative for travelers and an exciting array of activities to do or see close by!
