The location couldn't get any better, it's a 3 min walk from Queen Victoria Mkt and a five min walk from Melbourne Central and Emporium. It's right next to a grocery store which is extremely convenient . Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Heaters were so efficient! Although toiletries should be provided in a greater quantity if 5 people are... More

This hotel was amazing. we loved staying here!!! The furniture and style was all modern, the rooms were very nice. We stayed in a 2 bedroom which would suit a family or a group of friends perfectly. We had the extra sofa bed too so it was a great time having a place where all of us could stay together... More

This serviced apartment block is a joy to stay at. It's professionally staffed, very clean and the rooms ( I have stayed in a 1 bedroom and a 2 bedroom) are both spacious and have a great layout. I love the views from the balconys of both sides of the city, close to supermarkets and pubs. Franklin street is a... More

When: 10 days January for Australian Open 2015 Pros: very clean, professional staff, room was modern enough. Facilities such as the indoor pool, sauna,spa,gym were all adequate but now mind blowing. THE PRICE! I was gobsmacked at the price for our length of stay here compared to other places, and knowing that the sacrifice was location, not in the heart,... More

Stayed at Milano Serviced Apartments last week. The staff was absolutely wonderful. My partner had to go into hospital the day we arrived and they let us park our car early and have an early check in. It's a great location, so close to everything, the facilities, the pool, spa, sauna were excellent. We stayed in 2 bed/2 bath and... More

Loved: . Great location, can easily walk down town (or catch a tram back up) or to Lygon St. Aldi next door. . Large indoor heated lap pool. . Staff very helpful. Disliked: . Aircond would only run on max freezing. . Common areas / hallways near lifts smelt.

My stay in this apartment block was excellent. With off-street parking and good front-door security, it was a very comfortable stay. It is at the north end of the City, almost opposite Victoria Market which makes it so convenient - a quick tram ride to the City proper or a leisurely 15 minute walk to the Bourke Street Mall. The...

Apartments are well set out with a well equipped kitchen, balcony 2 TVs one with Foxtel. The indoor pool is 25m so is ideal if you want to swim rather than just relax, the gym was also a good size. Upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment when I only booked 1 which didn't really matter. The only thing you might... More

We booked an apartment for 2 adults for the weekend and was pleasantly surprised when offered an upgrade to a 2 bedroom. I was travelling with my friend so having separate rooms was great. The apartment was a good size and we also had a balcony which was nice. The location is in walking distance from Lygon Street, the Victorian... More

If you have booked and fully paid for your accommodation at Milano apartments and you receive a phone call informing you that there has been a flood (or some other unforeseen circumstance) and the management offer to transfer you to their sister property Tribecca - think carefully before you accept this offer.
