“Comfortable and convenient place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

I stayed in the apartment for 7 days with my family. The 1 bedroom apartment is large enough, clean and tidy. The kitchen is fully equipped and the apartment is cleaned everyday. Its location is at CBD yet to me it is still a bit far from Flinders station (15min walk).But becoz of its location it is far from bars and restaurant, thus it is very quiet at night. As we have 3 people, we have to add a sofa bed. Yet the sofa bed is a bit small. It may not be long enough for a person who is taller than 1.6m.
Overall it is a great place to stay.

Dear Trailwalker_H,

Thank you for your review of Punthill Manhattan. We are glad to hear that you liked your apartment and you had a pleasant stay. Unfortunately, all our sofa beds are from 2-seater sofas, which are the standard size for sofa beds. Next time, we can definitely give you a bigger rollaway bed upon request.

Kind Regards

I stayed at Punthill Manhattan for a week and it was fantastic :-).
The staff were friendly and really helpful. We arrived early and they looked after our bags and rung when the room was ready.
The apartment facilities had all that we needed for the week. We cooked in some nights and it had enough TV channels to watch.
Punthill Manhattan was really quiet which was just great as it allowed us to rest and relax for the week.
Great location means a 2 minute walk to the Parliament tram stop or walk through Collin's Place for the Collins Street tram. Got the flu so didn't use the gym however it was clean and tidy and had all I needed for a good workout.
Highly recommend Punthill Manhattan.

We stayed for two nights for a birthday celebration and concert. Punthill manhattan is ideally located and walking distance to all Melbourne has to offer. We pounded the streets of Melbourne for three days and it was ideal as an apartment base in the city without the need of a motel extras that you pay for. The only reason I took a star off for the rating was we enquired about parking in which we were advised to park at the Wilson parking at 32 flinders St which we did. Upon leaving we were faced with a $150 charge. With our luggage we traipsed back to reception to be handed a card to use for discounted parking making our fee $32... Much better. Apart from this our stay was pleasant and hassle free. Our one bedroom apartment was clean and nicely decorated. We will be back for sure.

These warehouse style apartments are comfortable, stylish and in a great part of the city. They are an easy walk to great restaurants, bars, theatres and major sporting venues. This is not an hotel and it doesn't have 24 hour reception but rather gives you the opportunity to experience living in the inner city.
This part of the city is clean and safe and fairly quite and the apartments have plenty of room for families. Parking is available at the parking station next door at a reduced rate.

Room Tip: The higher floors have a view - lower floors look into the car park next door.

Great location amongst fantastic restaurants. Rooms were tidy, clean and roomy. The kitchen and lounge area is great and makes the apartments really spacious.

The bathrooms do need updating, but at least they have heaps of bench space and the bath over the shower is always a nice option. Being tall however I would have preferred the shower head to be higher.

My partner and I stayed at the Punthill Manhattan Apartments for 4 nights. Unfortunately our experience didn't start well - we arrived at midnight and were unable to contact the night porter (there is a buzzer that is supposed to connect you to an night porter who then gives you a code to unlock the safe and obtain your room key). After trying for about an hour we were forced to seek alternative accommodation (not an easy task in the early hours of the morning!). When we returned later that day to check-in we were advised that the Telstra lines had gone down throughout the Melbourne CBD so the Punthill Apartments were not at fault. The staff were vey understanding and dealt with the situation professionally and promptly.

This issue aside, we found the apartments to be modern, clean, spacious and well equipped. It is in a central location close to transport and some great cafes and restaurants. One minor negative is that the plumbing must be on the other side of the bedroom wall as we often heard water running down the pipes although I have to say that it didn't bother us too much.

Overall we were happy with the accommodation and would definitely consider staying there again in future.

We stayed here while visiting Melbourne to go to the Michael Buble concert at the Rod Laver Arena. It was an easy 10 min walk. Everything is handy to here, with great eateries nearby. We loved the spa after a day of walking the city. The apartment was well appointed, but some minor maintenance/ repairs would keep it in line with its rating. Overall very satisfied with our 4 night stay.

Dear shazza021,
Thank you for your review of Punthill Manhattan.
Our location is ideal for those guests attending an event at Rod Laver Arena, and if you don't feel like walking to the venue then the trams on Flinders Street are easily accessible from the property too.
We are pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay. We would love you to let us know about the minor maintenance issues as we would repair immediately.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill when you are next visiting Melbourne.
Kind regards,
