“great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

Comfy, clean, convenient to shopping, & sights. Nice to have a little kitchen in the room-sink,two burner stove, small fridge, microwave. Hairdryer, iron and board. Flat screen TV and stereo with Ipod dock, and a sofa desk and small coffee table all efficiently arranged in one room. I thought it was a good value. Staff was helpful. Check in was a little slow.

I spent two weeks in Melbourne attending the IUGG General Assembly. The hotel was a perfect choice as I was travelling with family. The bedroom I stayed was not that large but was very comfortable and the kitchen proved to be essential (for preparing breakfast and meals). Front desk is great. Service is good (with the usual annoyances of having to ask for extra soap at times). Worth the price paid. Excellent location. One comment on Melbourne, though. A very expensive city. Even the Scandinavians attending the Conference were complaining.

In Melbourne for business but also wanted to be near Her Majesty's theatre to take in a show at the conclusion of meetings. These new apartments are wonderfully central to shopping, theatres, cafes and restaurants. Check in staff helpfull and efficient, our quiet, one bedroom apartment was spotless and very comfortable. I left my mobile charger in the room and one phone call to their helpful staff had my charger in the post back to me in no time . We would definitely stay there again.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights during the first week of July for my birthday. We wanted to stay somewhere that was very central, nicely decorated and reasonably priced.

The Citadines offered all this and more! when we arrived the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in the studio deluxe room which was very clean and beautifully decorated. The flat screen was conveniently located to watch from bed and the kitchenette was fully equipped, enough for my partner to cook me breaky in bed!

Although our view was nothing special the location was perfect! It was only a 1 minute walk to china town a 3 minute walk to Myer, David Jones and the New Zara! and 5 minute walk to the best shopping at Melbourne central.

There were multiple cafes and restaurants to choose from so there was no need for us to use the tram system, but if we wanted to there was a tram stop right outside the lobby doors.

The quality of this hotel is exceptional but the best part is it is very reasonably priced!

I really recommend trying this one out. It is so rare to find a hotel online that doesn't let you down when you actually arrive.

Overall we were both so impressed that we have vowed to only stay there on our annual trips from now on!

This Apart-Hotel in Bourke Street was close to the shopping District and Theatres. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. The one bedroom apartment was well appointed, had two televisions one in the lounge and one in the bedroom.

The room service staff left plenty of cleaning consumables every day. We could not fault this accomodtion and with the three nights for two deal it was very affordable for CBD accomodation.

Room Tip: Take the separate bedroom deal gives you much more space

A girlfriend and I stayed here for a quick shopping weekend in Melbourne. Checked in about 10pm one night and Danny (in-training) on the desk was fantastic. Very easy check in and he suggested a great place for us for a quick drink around the corner.

The location is fantastic - walking distance to all the shops and restaurants - must go to Movida! Beds were super comfortable, nice large rooms and great shower with fantastic water pressure. All that we could want for a weekend in Melbourne for a reasonable price.

Citadines on Bourke in Melbourne is a terrific place to stay. It is located within walking distance of most of Melbourne's major attractions. Very attentive, polite, and helpful front desk staff make you feel at home instantly. The apartment itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay. You have the benefit of your own apartment plus the feeling of staying in a smart hotel. Highly recommended.
