The Punthill is just a short stroll from one of the city's main thoroughfares. It is not in a prime location like some of the more well-known but more expensive major hotel groups. It does not have an impressive facade either, however don't let that deter you. It is situated in the heart of Chinatown and close to some very good Chinese and Asian restaurants. The hotel entrance is located in a cul-de-sac off Little Bourke St. This did have one advantage for us in that it was possible to park our hire car outside the entrance for a short period while unloading our luggage.
My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment for a week. The room had plenty of space for a couple as we did not close the doors that separated the bedroom area from the rest of the apartment. The queen sized bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a fair size and had an excellent shower over the bath.
The kitchen area was well-equipped though we did not use it apart from making the occasional cup of tea/coffee. Our room on the second floor was on the side of the building overlooking an alleyway behind the shops. The view was not good and the noise from the air-conditioning units on the adjacent rooves was intrusive if the windows are opened. Fortunately these were shut off when the restaurants closed.
We would stay there again if we could guarantee a room on a higher floor.
