Great location nice rooms with kitchenette washing machine and dryer - and affordable. Wifi internet was not good. I did let reception know and they reset our modem but it didn't appear to make much difference. Our booking was for 4 days so it was not an isolated incidence.

This is a good place for business travellers who want to be in the centre of town. My room (105) was huge and had a full sized bath tub, not just a shower. There's a small pool (lane swimming only) which is great to have to yourself! Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Only downside is the outrageous $18 per... More

Stayed here for two nights December, 2014. Hotel was a little hard to find being in a lane way off Little Bourke Street. And be warned your sat nav will probably try to take you down lane ways only a horse would fit through. Being in the city it is close to everything. It's in China town so the restaurants... More

Punthill Little Bourke Apartments are excellent value for Melbourne, Central to Theatres, Restaurants and Bars. The apartments seem like a mix of owner occupier / tourists. The swimming pool is nice but as a single lane lap pool, it's not ideal if more than 2 people want a swim. There was an issue with the light fixtures in our apartment,... More

Dear AustinDocherty, Thank you for your review of Punthill Little Bourke. As you mention, this property is fantastically located in Chinatown, with loads of restaurants, shops and theatres within easy walking distance.

Great location. Very good value for money. The only concern is that I did not feel particularly safe during night time in the neighbourhood. Also, someone nearby was having a party (it was a Saturday night) and it was really noisy during my stay. (B)

The best thing about this place is, without question, the location! Right smackbang in the heart of Chinatown! Absolute magic at night. It is located on a side street, however, so it can be extremely hard to find at first. Make sure to look out for it, as it is pretty well hidden from the street. I actually had to... More

We came to Melbourne for a girls weekend and stayed at Punthill Little Bourke. We booked over 6 months in advance and requested a quite room away from the street so we could enjoy a quiet nights sleep. When we checked in they put us on the first floor at the front entrance. Not much of a surprise that it... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in September 2014. As mentioned in previous reviews location might not be to everones liking. Tucked away off a little one way street I'm glad the taxi driver knew where it was! Located in the centre of Chinatown meant it was close to all the main attractions.
