We recently stayed at About Melbourne Apartments, we were in Apartment 104. We arrived late in the day and were given excellent instructions of how to get in the building and the apartment. We found the apartment to be clean and tidy and it presented really well. The furnishings are lovely and modern and well equipped. It is in a... More

We stayed in unit 104, 16 Liverpool St for a week. The apartment was modern, very clean and beautifully presented. All amenities were included (toilet paper, washing liquid, soap etc) which was a nice surprise. The location was brilliant - we were able to walk everyone where. All in all a fantastic holiday apartment.

The apartment in the Nova Building was perfect for our family. It was so central and easy to get to everywhere we wanted to visit. Furnished with absolutely everything that you need and lovely thoughtful extras in the kitchen and bathroom.

We stayed for two nights in one of the rooms at the 4th floor. The room is pretty impressive and as a service apartment, it's truly clean and complete. Everything you may need is there: toiletries, cleaning materials, cooking utensils and basic ingredients, garbage bags, and even maps and guides to the city. Despite the place is just in a... More

In Melbourne for a funeral, I found the apartment an absolute haven to which I could retire at the end of a couple of long days. Nothing, absolutely nothing has been overlooked in the cosy space. Spotlessly clean, modern, light, airy and cheerful - these are just some of the positives. The location is fantastic - close to theatres, restaurants,... More

We stayed for 2 nights in late May 2015. The apartment is on the small side. My wife, 2 children (both under 10) and I fitted in ok. Lets be honest, we don't go and spend much time in these places do we? The bedrooms are a reasonable size, the bathroom is superb, best shower I have had in YEARS!!!... More

Booked three nights and was really surprised how good this was for the price etc, great location and beautifully fitted out. Close to Chinatown restaurants and bars and right in the theatre precinct. The breakfast pack provided was a bonus and appreciated, I would have no hesitation in recommending

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
