We had a 2 bedroom apartment for a girly weekend! The room we had was actually a 1 bedroom and studio apartment with a joining door, this gave us loads of room so it didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Although we were so central to the CBD it was so quiet and I heard no noise from the street in the early hours! Staff at check in/out were friendly and helpful, we had no issues. Plenty of parking in a nearby multi story which was $20 which is more than reasonable, have paid much more in similar apartment hotel chains in Melbourne. Everything in the CBD is in a reasonable walking distance. Overall would definitely stay again!!!

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom spa apartment. The rooms are a reasonable size with a spacious bathroom and nice sized spa. The lighting in the bathroom could be better for applying make up but the bathroom is quite nice. There is a combination washer/dryer and also a clothes airer which is handy if you are staying for more than a couple of nights. There are no overhead lights in the bedroom but the lamps are quite bright. The cupboard doors in the bedroom are mirrored which is handy if you like a good, full length mirror. The only real negative was that our mattress was old and sagged in the middle - we slept on it the first two nights (I thought I may have imagined it the first night but it was definitely saggy). We mentioned the issue with the bed to reception and they changed our mattress over for one which was much more comfortable.

We stayed 4 nights in a 1 brm apartment. The location was great and the reception staff very friendly and helpful. The apartment was quite comfortable, although the bed was a bit soft and the furniture a bit tired. The outside bins are emptied in the middle of the night and can be a bit noisy, but we expected that and staying on a Saturday night in the middle of Chinatown you have to expect noise from the streets and the hotel has no control over that either.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Dear Debbie D,
Thank you for taking the time to provide your review of Punthill Little Bourke.
We do provide luxurious mattress toppers on our beds which most guests find very comfortable, but we can easily remove them if requested for a firmer mattress.
As you mentioned, staying in the heart of any city equates with a level of city noise that is inevitable, however we are pleased to know that the location of this apartment hotel was compensation for that, and that overall you enjoyed your stay.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill soon.
Kind regards,

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. The location is good and a short walk from trams in Bourke Street or the Parliament train station. Check-in was efficient. My one bedroom apartment was on the first floor but very quiet. Nice comfy queen bed. Shower was over the spa so required some agility to hop in and out. Room was clean and everything worked, although some of the furniture and fittings are showing their age (wobbly table, loose toilet seat). Overall pretty good value and met my needs. I rate it only 3 because of a few issues which are within the property's control. Wi-fi is not free, and while the management says that this is not uncommon in Australia, the fact is that I have stayed in three other places in Melbourne in the last six months where it was free. Same goes for their surcharge on payment by credit card: some places do this, but plenty don't. So I will probably look elsewhere next time, but for many travellers this place would be quite OK.

Dear Tom D,
Thank you for your review of Punthill Little Bourke.
Like most other hotels, we do offer specials fairly frequently that may include free wifi, but the rate you paid did not include this. The credit card surcharge seems to be extremely common practice these days. We are so sorry that these two issues marred what could have been an excellent stay, but are pleased that for the most part, you enjoyed your stay.
We encourage you to look out for specials on our website including free wifi.
We do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to Punthill another time.
Kind regards,

Book 2 rooms for 8 days. The rooms are clean and come complete with all the necessary kitchen appliances and utensils to cook or warm up takeaways. It is in a really great location. The staff are helpful and friendly. It will be nice if the rooms come with free wifi. Overall, a very pleasant stay!

Thank you to Punthill Little Bourke for a great Melbourne stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the apartments are in a really good location in Chinatown. The storage of our luggage outside of check-in and check-out times was really appreciated. We will definitely stay here again.
