Stayed here on the weekend. There was a few of us so we got a 2 bedroom apartment which was massive - huge lounge dining area!!! Close to restaurants and shops also. Alisha and James the resident managers are very friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: If you are after space - book an apartment!

Really enjoyed my two weeks at the Punthill Essendon. The apartments are a handy 2min walk to the tram and close to the train station - not to mention the many cafe's and restaurants all within walking distances.
I experienced noisy neighbors one evening and was pleased to find the managers very helpful with the issue the next morning. They were able to offer a room change and also notified me later in the day by a letter notifying that my neighbors had also been approached.
My room was serviced everyday and was very clean and spacious.

While my husband was on work assignment in the Melbourne area, we spent about 5 weeks at the Punthill Essendon apartments and enjoyed our stay very much. I did think that the halls were very dark and gloomy but the apartments themselves were very nice. I felt very safe and secure since a passkey was needed to enter ride the elevators and enter the parking garage. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. I liked having the train, neighborhood park and shopping areas nearby. I wish I could go back for another visit very soon. I will always fondly remember our stay at Punthill Essendon.

Room Tip: We stayed at a front room and had a lot of traffic noise when we opened the patio door.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment,with 5 of us staying, we had a wedding to go to and it was very close to the reception. It was well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen. It was very spacious and the staff were very helpful when we asked for a late check out. Coles supermarket next door.
Definitely would recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: No need to pack Shampoo and Conditioner or washing detergent..all supplied.

I can thoroughly recommend this place. Excellent location with great restaurants close by. The management and staff are extremely friendly and are always happy to help. Stayed here for 2 months with work and it’s always a pleasure to find somewhere like this when you’re away from home. Hope to get back there soon .

Stayed here for business, excellent location for my purposes, a Coles across the road and several eateries near by.
Check in was swift and friendly but the so called studio is rather a hotel sized room with a desk and the usual kettle, toaster and fridge one would find in a motel as standard. I asked for a quiet room at the back which I got but the so called balcony is a joke. It's more like a beach towel sized enclosed air conditioning pad with a man high security grate on it :-( Rather disappointing given the price of $ 195 per night !

Dear sparkles4_you,
Thank you for providing your comments about Punthill Essendon on TripAdvisor.
Our studio apartments are more compact and ideal for those guests wishing to stay one or two nights. We also have one bedroom and two bedroom aparments at the property which are more spacious and have fully equipped kitchens, as well as a larger balcony area.
Punthill Essendon is an extremely busy property and whilst the rates are dictated by occupancy, they are still competitive within this area.
We hope to welcome you back to Punthill sometime in the future.
Kind regards,
