Stayed for 3 nights while we explored the city. Would stay again due to its location. Not the fanciest accommodation and our room could do with some minor improvements (bathroom wear and tear) but overall very good for a mid-budget traveler staying in Melbourne.

Right in the heart of China town this place is great for shopping and eating as there are thousands of shops and restaurants close by. The foyer is a little dated but being upgraded in February. The rooms are modern and spacious. The lady that greeted us after our late flight on the morning of Saturday 23rd January was so... More

I visit Melbourne often and having "discovered" this hotel I will definitely be staying there again. Located in Chinatown amongst a wonderful selection of restaurants, these serviced apartments are two blocks from Swanston Street and one block from Bourke Street. I found the staff friendly and helpful, and my room was spacious, clean and well fitted out - including a... More

Arrived at the hotel at 7am after a long haul flight. The lady on reception was very helpful and took care of our luggage and gave us a recommendation for breakfast. The hotel is located in the middle of Chinatown which means there are loads of restaurants on your doorstep. The room itself was all that we needed for our... More

Great location in China Town, very handy for our NYE function. Service was excellent, reception was friendly and helpful. The only view was looking into neighbouring apartments, which was a bit disconcerting, however it is in a very busy part of town. Bathroom clean and roomy, with enough shelf space for our toiletries bags, however the half shower screen did... More

We are surrounded by taller buildings and unfortunately do not have any apartments with cityscapes, but hope that the proximity of this property to all that the city offers makes up for this. We...

These serviced apartments are right in the heart of Chinatown. We were a little apprehensive about the location at first but realised that it's perfect since the shops open much later in this area. We never had any problems with noise while staying here. There are several sizes of room available for the same room type (we chose the one... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
