“Great for young family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2010

My partner and I recently travelled to Melbourne for the weekend with our one and a half year old son. We chose Milano because the facilities. Travelling with a young child can be tough in many hotels but we found Milano to be clean (I have read others reviews and in my experience completely disagree) and great for young families. The room was quite large and modern a big flat screen TV and comfortable beds.
The location was great just a short walk to the Queen Victoria Market (great for food and shopping!!!) and just a short walk to Melbournes cool laneways and the Yarra River.
Will definitely be staying there on my next business trip too.

My Husband and I recently stayed here on a weekend away for the Football.
It is a lovely location, and when we arrived, the lobby is imaculate.
However, the room was extremely disappointing.
The carpet was heavily stained, unvacuumed floors and the bathroom was dirty. To top it off, there was a dirty tea towel left on the balcony.
I expressed my concern, they were apologetic, and said it would be seviced properly the next day. This didn't happen either!!
I would certainly expect a lot more from a 4and 1/2 star Hotel.
The staff were lovely but didn't offer a discount or really seem to care that much about how upset I was with the room. Would only reccomend for location.
Very disappointing!!

We met friends here for a weekend getaway.

Our room type was a 2 x Bedroom Delux and it was roomy and had fantastic facilities: full Kitchen, 5 seater dining table, spacious couch, TV/Stereo/DVD player, balcony and of course 2 Bedrooms joined by a shared bathroom.

Based just north of the City we walked EVERYWHERE with no problems. Only used the trams when going back and forth from Southbank and St Kilda.

Super location with Aldi supermarket right next door - we cooked breakfast each morning which saved us on Cafe brekkies.

HIGHLIGHT: Definitely the pool complex!! Brilliant stuff, plus the BBQ facilities were a ncie touch :-)

LOWLIGHT: Don't stay here if you don't like feeling like you've moved into a new Apartment where people live permanently... there are lots of permanent Apartment owners here. But we loved feeling like it was our very own home away from home.

We just returned from a stay in Melbourne, mainly to see the tennis. We had no problem with the Milano apartments, the location is great, walk to the CBD or hop on a tram. We had 4 people staying in a two bedroom/2 bathroom and I think it would have been a little cramped without the second bathroom. The staff are very helpful and the apartments were very clean and were serviced every day. There is a nice pool and tennis court.
I am very fussy about where I stay and I would recommend this complex to others

The two bedroom apartment has limited space, approx. 60 meter squares. It was clean and adequate. There is foxtel with limited channels, but good enough for us. There is a washing machine with a built-in dryer, which is a plus. There is a king bed in one room and 2 singles in another. The couch at the living room is a sofa bed but they did not provide bedding for the sofa bed even though it was mentioned in the booking that there would be 5 guests staying in the apartment. The receptionists are pretty helpful and friendly. The location's quite good, 3 mins walk to Melb central.

There is only 1 bathroom so all of us would have to share. Also, we had troubles sleeping at night as there is a night club next door. Staying at level 13 still managed to hear the loud noises from below such as the night club's music and screams from random drunk people as early as 10pm to 3am. There is no 24hour concierge so you would not be able to get any help after 10pm.

Other than that, everything's all good.
