I stayed here with my husband and two sons and the positive were the swimming pool (although the boys had a hard time with the chlorine) and the handy location for shopping (QV building). The booking was disorganised so we were upgraded but when I called to meet the person to get the keys as arranged, she had gone home...

For the money we paid to stay the week - well we got what we paid for. Location is fantastic, close to everything however the room wasnt that great. Lounge was revolting and leather was torn and tearing away all over it. Windows were really filthy also. I would stay there again, however if I had a few extra hundred...

We arrived to a woman named tui texting us when it would be suitable for her to meet us to let us in. We then were showed up to the room that on first glance seemed ok, awful decor, but ok. Once we put our bags down and looked around we noticed just how bad it was. Firstly, whoever cleaned...

I booked this apartment which was on Liverpool street as opposed to Elizabeth street. Nevertheless, I really liked being tucked away with cute restaurants opposite and a nice ambience given China Town is a stone's throw away. The apartment was excellent and felt very homely. I had my family visit over the weekend and they loved the wooden floors and...

Our apartment was given to us in a very filthy state!!!! Broken furniture, soiled toilet, food stuck on walls, chairs, table and kitchen benches. The beds were very uncomfortable and I don't think it had been dusted in about a year... A very big disappointment for the money spent.... After complaining to one of the managers we were sent two...

Firstly, be careful when you book, even though it says 250 Elizabeth street, Melbourne, there are actually other apartments and we were placed at Liverpool Street. No issues with it, was close to a lot of nice bars, great facilities. Apartment was fine, nothing to write home about, it was clean enough and we don't ask for a lot so...

We are a family of 4, our children aged 11 &13, we stayed for a week at the Habitat Apartments and thought they were perfectly situated in Melboure. They are what you pay for and what we expected from a three star place. We contacted the apts as we wanted two single beds in a room for the children which...

Perfectly situated in CBD Melbourne to enjoy the laneways, restaurant and cafe's. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and modern. The beds are great. I liked the idea of having a private apartment as well. Highly recommended.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
