Stayed for 2 nights in October 2010 in a 3 bedroom apartment. Plenty of room for 6 people. The apartment was clean and was serviced with clean towels etc even though we had a short stay. The full kitchen and laundry would be ideal for those staying longer. The bedroom nearest the street was quite noisy both nights. Overall this was a good value option in quite a convenient location.

My daughter and I have just returned from a two-night stay at PuntHill Manhatten. We booked at the same time as others in our party (more than a month in advance) and were given a basement apartment. These apartments are literally in the basement - entrance is through a utilities corridor and down two flights of fire stairs. No lifts, so you have to drag your luggage down there.
Our apartment had a large window which unfortunately let in virtually no light because it was about two metres from a multilevel car park. Interesting sights and sounds from THAT car park (yes, you can see into the car park and they appear to be able to see into the apartment).
The air conditioning was so loud (think car park airconditioning which appears to be boxed around) we ended up buying earplugs.
And to top matters off, my daughter, who grew out of her asthma in childhood, woke up wheezing and fighting to breathe.
The others in our party were given a room on level 6. There were no issues with this apartment.
But as you cannot be guaranteed WHICH apartment you will be getting, I would definitely give this place a miss.
The basement apartments truly are not fit for habitation.

Booked 2bedrooms apartment, but was given 2 rooms with connecting door. Rooms located at the basement, facing car park, hence no view at all. Rooms are clean and good size, each room has 1 queen size bed in the room and a sofa bed. Arrived at 9am, was lucky that the rooms are ready and we manage to get early check in, that's very helpful. Apart from that, the fact that Front Desk closed at night, the service is not that impressive.
Location is not bad but not perfect either. Punthill Flinder Lane is better in term of location.

My 12-year-old daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights. Terrible view over the carpark from our apartment but, as a result, it was very quiet during the night. Well-equipped but could have been a bit cleaner. Bathroom a bit "tired" and quite a tricky shower to get in and out of - a handle on the wall would help as you have to step out of the bath and down to the floor. I doubt very much that an elderly or unfit person could cope with it. My daughter slept on the couch-bed and the blinds did not block out the light in the morning although it did seem to bother her. Very cllose to shops etc at the Parliament end of town; close to the tram, etc. IGA store around the corner - well-stocked but a little pricey. The Coles supermarket was a fair walk away although you could get a taxi.

The Punthill Manhattan certainly ranks amongst my best stays abroad. The things I liked about the Hotel were
1. Fully furnished Kitchen with all utensils and cutlery, stove, Microwave, Dishwasher
2. A small pack of milk was supplied every day
3. The room was cleaned and the dishes washed everyday
4. Washer-Dryer in every room
5. Walking distance from Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, the MCG, etc.
6. A 32" LCD TV with HD channels.
7. Iron with Board
8. Bedroom separate from the living room

The slightly sore points for me included
1. Very expensive Internet options
2. The View from the rooms is not too great

Stayed: April 2010, traveled on business

We booked through wotif and got the apartment for a very good price. The location was good, the apartment was very clean and well appointed it had everything you could possibly need. Tea, coffee, milk etc were replenished everyday and the apartment was fully serviced each day. When you stay in central Melbourne you cant expect a view from your window. This apartment did not have a view but we would still recommend it if this does not bother you.
The location is close to Flinders street station and the city circle tram. The photo on the website is accurate which makes a change as often they only show the best rooms and you have to be fortunate to get one of these rooms.

I booked this hotel with a secret stay on Wotif.com. After reading reviews on Tripadvisor I was concerned and did request that my room not be on the bottom floor. The hotel is in a great location being close to cafes and my favorite place 'Kokoblack' is a two minute walk to Collins Street. The one bedroom apartment had a lovely art/warehouse deco and was very clean. My only complaint would be that the carpet was a little tired. Staff were very helpful with access to internet and making sure our room was warm upon arrival.
