A great location close to the CBD and close to St Kilda. Very well priced for South Yarra, with polite staff and comfortable beds. Yes the rooms are smaller than normal, but you make up for this by location. Car parking can be an issue as the spaces are rather small for an SUV, if you have a smaller car... More

We will definitely stay here again, the staff were really helpful and the location is ideal in a quite road, close to train station, tram, restaurants and shops. We needed a two bedroom unit and they gave us two single units interconnected, both with kitchens and showers, quite a bonus. Thanks to all Abacus staff.

My family and I stayed at Abacus Apartments and had a lovely time. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. Nothing was ever too much trouble. It truly is a hidden gem. Tucked away in a quiet street in the middle of South Yarra. Only a minutes walk right into the hustle & bustle of Toorak Rd and Chapel street.... More

We stayed again with Abacus and once again they excelled in every way. Leanne and rob really make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. It's great to see good old fashioned customer service is still alive. Thanks guys.

If you can use public transport but have a car and do not need the liability of parking then this place would be hard to beat. As seen in other's reviews the televisions are "op shop". The laundry is shared and outside like my great grand mother's, but she was not electric. The target market for this type of accommodation... More

Great small motel in the heart of South Yarra, stones throw to super shopping in Chapel Street, easy access to tram to the city. Friendly staff who cannot do enough for you, clean, warm rooms with spunky red doors adding to the ambience of the place. Will be returning very soon. Thanks guys.

Great property close to the more interesting and cultural side of Melbourne. Your five mins from everything, with great access to public transport and major roads. Perfect for restaurants and shopping in a very cool and trendy side of Melbourne. Nice quiet side street off Toorak road, never heard any traffic or other guests. Great size one bedroom apartment all... More
