We stayed in a 1 bdrm apartment for a week while on a girls shopping trip to Melbourne, the apartment was lovely, clean, tidy, nice decor and very well equipped. The 1st room we were given was agreat lay out but had a faulty shower, we told reception of this and were relocated to another room straight away. staff were really approachable and happy to make sure we were happy.The 2nd room was not quite as good layout as the 1st, but still excellent.
Staff here are so nice and friendly, always said hi, gave great shopping advise, and asked for updates on our daily purchases when we arrived back with tons bags each day. (It did become a standing joke the huge amounts of shopping we did).
As for the Location - it is the best! There was no other place we would walk past and think "gee that's the place to be", we had "the place to be". And right next to Degraves Street which is full of quirky little cafes. nice little Laneways full of lovely cafes to walk through all the way to Burke Street.
I loved every bit of my Melbourne week and this great accommodation was a huge factor in making it so perfect. It will always be my 1st choice of Melbourne accommodation.

We needed one nights accommodation and really only stayed here because all of the "nice" hotels were booked out.... However, it was a blessing in disguise as the room size and separate bedroom, combined with amazing central location, made this a perfect spot for us and our 2 year old. We came via train and it was a quick walk from the station... Then early Indian for dinner followed by a bottle of red on the separate lounge whilst she was asleep in her quality portacot in the bedroom.... Breakfast in a lane way cafe and they stored our bags whilst we shopped and looked at the myer windows... Service lovely and clean room... Just what we needed! We will be back.

We stayed here for 6 nights, and so enjoyed the space and the ability to cook your meals if you wanted to. There is a Coles supermarket just 5 minutes away around the corner. And if you want to eat out everything is on the doorstep. Our room was quite, and the staff really helpfull.
I see a few comments here about the lifts - yes they are a bit quirky and slow, however it gives you time to put your lippy on and gave us a laugh each time we used them and on other occasions its a convesation starter with other quests. We would definately stay there again.

Generally the apartments exceeded our expectations - affordable, clean, kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom, quirky decor, friendly staff and prime location right across from some of Melbourne's best cafes and best coffee (we drank a lot of coffee).

The only things to watch are the lifts - at one stage they appeared to not be working as we waited for ages, there are no safes for your valuables (being on the 1st floor with no locks on the windows was a little of a concern), but the biggy is the noise. Thanks to other reviews, I was aware they would be noisy, but it's really pretty bad with the rubbish trucks and street cleaners going seemingly going all night, and the noise from the cafes (including the staff knocking off of their shift and yelling loads).

In saying that, we would stay there again, we would just make sure we took some good ear plugs.

My Daughter and I spent 2 nights at the Punthill Apts and once again found them to be everything we needed. The twin bedroom was large and the bathroom very clean. The lounge and kitchen area are great and I especially like the way they are serviced daily. The position of the Apts is convenient for all our shopping in Melbourne hopefully we will return again next year.

For 3 in a 2 bedroom in the middle of Melbourne this was very good value .Sure the floor boards were creaky & the decor a bit quirky but it was very good. Only issue was the old keys & to lock the door as they did not a auto lock.But that was pointed out at check in .

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the heart of Melbourne. Our apartment was located above the Laneways Precinct. Very clean and well serviced. First night was noisy from cafes below but we didn’t take any notice thereafter. Close to many amenities including trams; trains and buses all within walking distance.
The front desk concierge (and staff in general) were extremely helpful in making our stay an enjoyable one. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend to any future travellers.
