The apartment was well-located and the staff were lovely. The main room and kitchen were also great, but the twin room is not suitable for adults and the noise from the corridor kept us awake all night.

Great central location, apartment had everything we needed for the weekend. A few things could be looked at though - ignition to stove and blankets that fit beds correctly, cleaners would benefit from looking above eye level too. Morning alarm was the trams bells which was ok by the 3rd night. Was good for us but a little extra attention... More

the Location is good but still needs to improve service to customer., if there is a dinning table and chairs will be perfect.. It has a really good and convenient location. It's close to and central to everything. We could walk everywhere we wanted. Generous size rooms, bigger than what I expected

Excellent value set in central position of all transport, found staff friendly each time my wife and I have stayed. Rooms are clean and inviting. I would most certainly continue to use Break Free on Collins myself and would have no hesitation in recommending Break Free on Collins to anyone.

We were upgraded to the two bedroom apartment which was such a lovely surprise. The apartment had everything you could need, was super clean and almost brand new. Such a great place to stay close to all the great cafes, bars and tourist attractions with a tram stop right out the front. The only negative for me was the beds... More

Toilet door not closing. No toilet brush. Window locked. Very dusty. Incredibly strong smell. Broken accesories all around. No isoletion between rooms. No windows in rooms. Forcefully fit furniture in rooms - making it impossible to open the wardrobe (had to carry some items out). Brush or window porblems were not fixed even after reporting. Stayed quite long time and... More

Located at the CBD Melbourne, tram just outside the door. Also allow you to have convenience to explore Melbourne on foot. Some in room amenities might be old but its okay for staying few nights. Good experience with good value!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
