This place was awesome! Stayed for 3 nights on a recent weekend in Melbourne. Perfect location, walking distance to all that the "paris end" of the city is known for. The apartment itself was well equipped, meticulously cleaned and a wonderful base for our stay. Big ☺ all round!

We had two nights staying here - loved the location. Easy walk to great bars and restaurants. The apartment was comfortable and Amelia was lovely and helpful. We could easily have stayed longer. Enjoyed popping over to La Petit Bourke cafe for excellent coffee and croissants. Would definitely recommend these apartments.

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.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
