Punthill Manhattan is our go-to accommodation when we travel to Melbourne. It is very popular so can be hard to get a reservation at peak times. Try to book in well advance if possible. We always stay in a studio apartment. These rooms are large with a full kitchen/lounge and a huge bathroom (including large bath tub). There is also... More

We weren't electing the apartment to be so large! We were allowed to check in early (10am) which is rare for hotels. All the kitchen utilities were provided. Had a washing machine. Was super clean and stylish. And was located next to some of the best restaurants. A 10 minute walk from the shops. Just missing a large pool.

We went to this hotel for our wedding anniversary and were greeted with chocolates and wine on arrival in t he room. Large sized dining/living, full sized kitchen with separate bedroom was terrific. Very quiet location too. Would be happy to revisit.

We really enjoyed our 4 nights in the one-bedroom apartment. Spacious, light, well appointed and friendly service from the manager. We had a problem with the bed being too soft and he was helpful in finding a solution. Bed was improved although still a bit soft for our taste. But top marks for being obliging and helpful and trying to... More

A fantastic place well located in the CBD only a short walk to the major shops. Opposite a fantastic cafe - restaurant Tazio with other great options located down the lane. The manager is fantastic. Very helpful, well mannered and friendly. The apartments are down with taste. An element of modernised industrial. Comfortable beds. Only let down was the shower.

We stayed here for ten nights. The apartment was really well setup. It was spacious and had a nice feel in the room. The only issue was the sofa in the lounge which was really uncomfortable and hard to relax in. The location is excellent with easy access to the city but not too noisy. Great eateries and coffee right... More

We stayed here on our return to Melbourne before heading home from our Melbourne / Adelaide Road trip. Great sized apartment with a real warehouse apartment style to it, which I liked.

Our disappointment starts with a travel agent screwing us over with our booking. She recommended the place. Stuffed the booking up and lied to us for 8 months. Long story short we ended up with a "executive 2.5 bedroom apartment " as a compromise between the supposed booking we were meant to get (3bedroom)and what the hotel still had available.... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
