“Nice apartments in great location at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We recently stayed at the Punthill Manhattan in a 3br apartment. The location is great, right in the middle of the city. Close to the lanes for Cafes and street dining. We stayed on the 5th floor. Spacious apartment, with most things you'd need. Good for families. Helpful and friendly staff. The only down side was there was bit of street noise in the early morning hours.

Room Tip: If you can get a higher floor.

Dear Kiwi721,
Thanks for taking the time to provide your comments regarding Punthill Manhattan.
Noise, to some extent, is an inevitable consequence of being in the city, but hopefully the outstanding location of Punthill Manhattan compensates for this.
We are very pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Kind regards,

Stayed here recently for 5 nights as part of a longer Honeymoon.
The rooms look really modern and well decorated on websites etc, but it was pretty plain. The bathroom in particular was nothing special at all (bath/shower combo with tiniest bath ever). A bit run down. But the location was great. Flinder's Lane bustling with Melb. restaurants, and so close to all the main attractions, we enjoyed Melbourne anyway.
Friendly staff, and a reasonable stay, but nothing overly special.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the better rooms from the pic... if they exist? Stay for the value and location thoug...

Spent 6 days in a one bedroom apartment on level 6, spacious with all day sun and had everything we needed. Great place to stay for visiting MCG, Rod Laver & Regent theatre all within a 10 minute walk. Friendly and helpful staff and excellent value for money. Will stay again.

I stayed here in May this year mainly a footy trip with my partner,our son and our nephew.
It was great the apartment was a very nice size the rooms were great.
There is a small IGA nearby so we used the kitchen facilities for our meals.
We ordered dinner though room service a couple of times the first time it was lovely the second time not so much it was a bit salty.
My only thing about the kitchen facilities was the dishwasher didn't work properly and there wasn't enough trays for the oven and the frying pan provided was too small.
Very secure doors are locked after a certain time at night but you have a key to get in you also need your key to use the elevator
It is located in a place that met our needs close to the MCG a walk up the street takes you to the trams or the free bus.
I'd recommend staying here again in fact we are heading back to Melbourne next year and are taking our other 2 kids with us and are thinking of staying here again.

This is my second stay at this place for work. Hard to find good accommodation within public service allowance rate in melbourne. Can't fault this place. Will stay again. Offers all I need at a high standard for a work overnighter.

We stayed at your Manhattan apartments from the 8th until the 13th of August.
We found the apartments clean tidy, well presented and ALL the staff were friendly, professional and well mannered. The apartment was convenient to the city and most public transport.
I am a light sleeper and the staff accommodated me with a room on the 6th floor and away from the lifts.
Unfortunately I was not aware the floors were timber and every noise that the people in the rooms above us made- we heard. On the Saturday night the guy above us sounded like he was renovating the apartment. He was up all night and was constantly dropping things on the floor.
The only other bad points were- the mattresses was too hard and the heater sounded like a train when it started up during the night

Overall I was very satisfied with everything.

Room Tip: Try and get an apartment on one of the higher floors as they are quietier. If you order from the ro...

We do have luxurious mattress toppers on our beds which normally provide an extremely comfortable surface. We understand from our managers that they did place an extra topper on your mattress. We will certainly check the air conditioner.

My partner & I couldn't have stayed at a better place - lovely service, an amazingly hip apartment, clean & tidy with everything we needed, heaps of space & such a central location!!
No troubles with our late check-in.
They have little vouchers for things to do locally & at a discounted rate.
We were provided a map with directions with how & where to catch trams etc when we went down the morning after checking in late.
Very accommodating & were more than happy to look after our bags after check-out & waiting for our plane.
They called a taxi for us also!
Feels like a family run business with a very warm & welcoming service!

We're already planning our next trip next Winter & can't wait to stay at Punthill Manhattan - felt like a home away from home!
