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

We were attending an evening function at the Park Hyatt but did not want to pay there high prices. The Birches suited us it's clean a convenient location with private parking. The rooms are well used, a little tired but clean and functional. The room rate is reasonable and is as cheap as taking a taxi in and out of... 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

Had to go to Melbourne for a hospital visit and this place was within walking distance so decided to stay there. Big mistake as the room was dirty and smelly. Should have stayed in the city. If you have pets it might be ok as it is pet friendly but if you have allergies then is definitely a no go.

Great value, easy walk to MCG, Rod Laver and transport. Rooms are clean and spacious. Plenty of places to eat nearby if you don't want to cook. Off street parking for extra fee. Concierge is extremely helpfull. Only thing to consider is the stairs if you have a lot of luggage. We will use these apartments for all future trips... More

We stayed at this place last week. It is a good place to stay, close to CBD, good spaced apartment and it is dog friendly. Very friendly and helpful staff. You will have to pay extra for the dog and secured parking. Recommended.

Lovely comfortable two room apartmen with kitchent. Very well priced and located just outside the CBD. Tram to Collins St 200m away or 300m to train to Southern Cross or Flinders St. stations. Very quiet unlike the smaller hotels in the CBD, with double the space and no early morning cleaning/delivery trucks, traffic, etc. Staff very helpful and friendly. Secure... More

Very good price and friendly concierge. It was an early morning wake up for this light sleeper though, with traffic noise being disturbing at 6am on a Saturday, even with the windows closed. Great blockout curtains, and clean bathroom. Shower was a bit hot and cold. Probably wont stay again purely because of being able to hear everything going on... More
