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

These renovated apartments are close to the city. (10 minutes walk to spring street) or a short cab or tram ride. Right near fitzroy Gardens, so great for a walk or run. The rooms are basic, clean and pretty comfortable, nothing flash, but OK for the price. Drawbacks - the rooms are not very sound proof and you get a... More

This is the 6th time over several years we have stayed here. Always good. Great location, easy tram to the city, secure parking, easy walking to good eating places. Friendly staff. Any problems attended to quickly.

Four of us stayed here for one night and so we booked a double room and a room with two singles. On arrival we were given two doubles, which wasn't a problem as there was a sofa bed in the lounge of each. However, I wouldn't suggest using the sofa bed as you could feel the bar and springs in...

Stayed a couple of days. Apartment was clean and comfortable, with everything we needed. Location was brilliant - walking distance to MCG and CBD. IGA & cafe close by. Also had off-street parking, though we left the car at home. Staff were very helpful and after-hours arrival catered for. Would happily stay there again, and would recommend to friends. Only... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. Very comfortable room, had a king sized bed. Bathroom was clean too. Trams are close by & CBD not too far. Has secure parking for a small fee. Would certainly recommend this to Melbourne visitors who want to stay close to CBD & not pay too much for it.

We recently stayed at Birches for 4 nights. It was very easy to find coming from the Hume Highway. It is a short walk to the city or to catch a tram. We parked the car there for the 4 days and walked everywhere. For a small fee the parking is off the street and secure. There is a small... More

We had a couple of days in Melbourne on the school holidays for a quick family getaway. Birches apartments are ideally located a few blocks walk from the CBD. Our room was nice and clean, the only critique I would give is new flooring would make this place shine. Value for money this place defiantly is. The service was friendly... More
