Birches is well located in East Melbourne, and just by one of the main trams routes making every part of the city really accessible. The apartments are in an older building without a lift, but there are ground floor apartments if mobility is an issue. The furnishings are modern and the bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were... More

We stayed at Birches for 2 weeks during a visit from Hong Kong. Our apartment was clean, spacious, homely & comfortable, with big windows overlooking the tree-tops of East Melbourne. The building was very well located in a quiet residential area, within 5 minutes by tram to the city centre, or by 15 minute stroll across the Fitzroy Gardens. Price... More

Birches service Apartments are within walking distance of the city, bridge street and the MCG. Trams are also close by. The apartments are very clean and are reasonably quiet. Secure parking is at a small cost and is very convenient. The staff were very friendly and we would have no hesitation in staying again

I needed to find accommodation near the hospital. I found this one but was a bit wary when it said pet friendly. I needn't have worried. The rooms were exactly as they were shown on the website. The staff very friendly and helpful. A very enjoyable stay.
