Punthill in Burwood, Melbourne is a great place, especially for a longer stay. I recommend it especially for people who are visiting Deakin University (5 min walk), but it is also a great location for visiting Melbourne. A tram will take you almost from the hotel door to the center of the city (Federation Square with visitor's center, National Gallery of Victoria, etc and to best shopping spots in Melbourne). A trip takes about 40-45 minutes, but trams are going frequently (every 10-12 min) and are almost never crowded (avoid coming back around 5pm). Across the street from the hotel is a bottle shop with a great selection of inexpensive vine and couple of restaurants. A supermarket is about 15 minutes walk through a nice, residential neighborhood.
I stayed in 1 bedroom apartment, which was very spacious, with everything that one needs to cook in a kitchen, and dishwasher, washing machine, desk, comfortable sofa, large closet space, quiet bedroom. It was very clean when I arrived and it was cleaned daily. Hotel gym is small, but it is easy to find a time when other people do not use it.
James, the manager, is very helpful, friendly and professional. He always finds time to help with hotel related things and also to give advice about public transport and the city.
Also, for women traveling alone – I felt very safe at the hotel and the neighborhood.
