We stayed for three nights while hubby worked for four consecutive days in the city. Location was brilliant. Noise level was the acceptable basic hum of the city. Apartment was spacious. Bed was average, maybe a little hard. En route to apartment, we found the hallways had a bad smell, which maybe could be fixed with a fresh fragrant cleaning...

Perfectly situated for every thing, easy to get to and from, next door to china town for meals, the wonderful Elephant and Wheelbarrow english pup almost next door is awesome. Apartments are clean, spacious, quiet, check in easy, luggage storage is great for early arrivals.

We had booked in at another apartment but due to a plumbing problem we were 'upgraded' to Paramount. The room we were given initially had no aircon, tv didn't work, bathroom and kitchen were outdated and there were a lot of stains on the carpet - felt dirty! The funky odor on the 3F apartment and in the hall was...

Have been staying at this place for many years, it is our go to place pretty much. The hotel hasn't really change in 20 years, rooms could do with some upgrades (I believe an upgrade process is happening), the hallways look old and tiered and some of the furniture is less than perfect. Putting all this aside we stay here...

This is a great location, even though I didn't have time to use any facilities, including fridge and microwave. It had a nice bed, lots of space in both bedrooms as we had a 2 room apartment. It also had a largish bathroom. It was a fantastic price and the reason we booked it initially was because it was close...

We stayed here for just 1 night in a 2 Bedroom Apartment (708 facing Bourke Street) to be able to attend the Kids Hots Shots at the Australian Open the following morning. Location: The location was great. Any easy 'straight' walk to Rod Laver Arena. It was also in a good spot to access Bourke Street Mall, Emporium, QV Square...

Great location and great rooms for a long or short term stay. Family room is spacious and enough for 4 whilst the smaller studio rooms offer the basics for a couple for however long your stay. Staff are great if you need them otherwise they leave you alone to go about your business. Close to China town and the for...

My husband and I stayed at the Paramount Serviced Apartments for one night. It has been a few years since we last stayed there but once again it was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. In a great location to access quite a number of restaurants and wander around the city. Best of all it was very reasonably priced.

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.
