Great apartment, clean, lots bits and pieces and full amenities. The location is perfect for theatre goers. There are some really nice restaurants around the area. Rice Paper SCRS across the street is fantastic, do yourself a favour and have a 'Tom Collins'. Liverpool St has character and as always Amelia and staff were lovely to deal with.

You will not find a better location to base your exploration of Melbourne's famous laneways, especially at such a sharp rate. The apartment was quite big with separate lounge/kitchenette and bedroom. However it has a clumsy layout which means it feels small and pokey. Leaving aside the poor layout design, everything else is quite standard, although not great quality (ie....

Great apartment in the heart of Melbourne CBD. Short Walk to Chinatown and lots of other eateries. Tram just around corner. Amenities as advertised. I slept on sofa bed which was quite adequate. A/C didn't feel as cool as it should but did the job. If they advertise breakfast, need to leave enough milk to eat with the cereal. Just...

We spent 2 nights with 2 teenagers and we had a great time. The apartment is located near loads of restaurants but also near grocery stores and bottle shops for eating in. Take the nearby free city circle tram to visit Southbank, the Art gallery or the shops. Recommended for a couple or family with 1 or 2 kids that...

The apartment has everything that is advertised. Clean, modern and vibrant, close to everything you may want or need in the city of Melbourne, at walking distance and in the free CBD tram zone. The service provided was great and we enjoyed our stay. Only the bed was too soft for my back but i guess youngers would enjoy it....

Our 4th or 5th year staying here at Xmas time - check out my previous reviews, nothing has changed, its still a very, very good value place to call home in the Melbourne CBD. The location is unbeatable, the bed is seriously comfy and the apartment has got everything you need.

The apartment is small, but well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. The location is fabulous for seeing the city sights and being within walking distance of many excellent restaurants with a range of prices. The owners have thoughtfully left information about things to do and see. My only recommendation is that it would have been lovely to have received an...

Stayed for 5 nights in November in one of the apartments.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
