The room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed, and the apartments can be reached via the Skybus service from the airport, which makes getting there easy. It's a comfortable 15-minute stroll to the MCG if you're in town for a game. There is a bit of traffic noise from Simpson and Albert Streets but this tapers off later in the evening.... More

Finding somewhere to stay when travelling with pets can be difficult so to find this place, located so close to the city was excellent. We only stayed one night but the rooms were clean and comfortable, off street parking was useful and the apartments are located close to trams which made getting around very easy, even for out of towners....

So close to city and trams. Very convenient and comfortable. Noise on Albert Street is not an issue due to the double glazing windows. Management very helpful. As country people we enjoy this sort of thing and makes it home away from home for us. Excellent car parking too. One way into property and one way out so no confusion... More

It is located very central, walking distance to many parks and tourist attractions. Clean, good quality apartments. Free fruit absolute treat. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Parking is bit of a problem.

It is so incredibly difficult to find places to bring your well behaved dog. Birches was so lovely and super convenient - great location too. Cheap, cheerful and lovely staff! Will absolutely be back. Kailey (our pup) loved it too!

These apartments in East Melbourne are well appointed and quiet, being off the main street, yet a 3 minute walk to the tram stop. I stayed here 3 nights and it felt like home. Off-street parking for $10 per night. Only needed this one night as I got to Melbourne too late to ditch the hire car. 6 pm close... More
