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.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 adults for a weekend. The apartment was a good size and had everything you could possible need. We had a balcony which was nice. The stand out point was the staff. We were delayed by 2 hours due to bad weather and when we called (still sitting on the tarmac) the girl... More

I stayed here for two weeks on a business trip. The room was nice with two bedrooms. The kitchen was stocked well-enough with utensils. I was on the 14th floor facing Franklin Street. Even at that height there was Smoot of street noise. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Theres a decent enough grocery store right next door, and the... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 nights, and were really impressed with the Milano Serviced Apartments. The apartment was generous in size and fitted out with everything we needed, including a washing machine and dryer. It was spotlessly clean, and serviced every day, which we appreciated. The best thing was how quiet it was at night. I am... More

For the money and the rating could have been much better. They are redecorating, no shower screen the whole weekend so water everywhere! Dryer didn't work, no toiletries, for the rating u expect a few things to be covered. Only good thing was location and kids liked the pool. Will choose elsewhere on next trip.

Good location in the heart of Melbourne city and close to all businesses and tourist attractions. Apartment was generally well equipped, though minor things missing, such as Shampoo and liquid soap. I stayed at the 12th floor and you could hear every tram on the street passing by...... Maybe in a higher floor it is better Last, the Internet speed... More
