I need to travel a lot for work and I spend a fair bit of time in Melbourne. I just wish I had found this place before. It is so far above the other serviced apartments I have tried in this city and the price is super reasonable. The staff are so friendly and helpful, it's really easy, they just... More

The level of service was high from front office staff to housekeeping. The bonus of cheap car parking for our hire car was appreciated. As we had booked early we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom 2...

Lovely modern apartment with everything you would need, great spot in the city with a supermaket next door for convenience. Very attentive front desk staff. Cute little fountain in the foyer. Pool and spa area were very nice too.

Situated right at the corner of Franklin and Swanston street, the Milano Serviced Apartments provides a quiet, yet close proximity to the bustling Swanston street and nearby Lygon street. We stayed for 9 nights and it was good! The living room, bedroom and bathroom are clean and spacious. The tram stop at RMIT is nearby, and if you walk the... More

Apartments are very well located, walking distance to both Lygon Street eateries and to Bourke Street shopping district, public transport etc. There is a supermarket next door. Car parking available through apartment booking located next door with direct access to lift apartments. Downside there was a strong tobacco smell in apartment even though we requested non-smoking. Also shower could do... More
