Reviewed 10 May 2014

We have stayed at About Melbourne Apartments a number of times in recent years. The high standards have all been maintained or improved. Unlike many apartment rentals they have a proper , well equipped kitchen . Even small details like providing a shopping bag have been thought of . Having a full laundry in the large bathroom is invaluable if staying a week or more. The bed was comfortable enough to lead us to sleep two hours longer than normal.

Room Tip: We have stayed on both sides of the complex. Noise has never been a problem to us but if you want to...

The perfect self contained unit for a weekend in Melbourne. Close to the theatre, fantastic selection of restaurants at your door step and a cocktail bar right outside your door! Excellent quality, beautifully appointed furnishings with all the little extras that made us feel right at home. Beautifully comfortable bed. So comfortable in fact we had to write down the brand for future mattress purchases!! Absolutely wrapped we found such a gem of a unit in such a fabulous location. Well done to the owners. We will definitely stay again and hopefully soon.

We were in Melbourne to celebrate our 60th birthday and very impressed with the apartment. Perfect views, very central to where we were going over the 3 days. Excellant host who kept in touch before our arrival and escorted us to the apartment, explained everything fully. So close to China town, shopping, casino and the Tram car restaurant where we celebrated our birthdays. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend About Melbourne Apartments to anyone as I could not fault them, thankyou for your hospitality, it was fantastic

Room Tip: We didnt use the fitness centre or pool so cannot comment here

I took my elderly grandmother to Melbourne for the weekend (March 2014) and was unsure what to expect when booking this apartment. We were impressed with the beautiful 2 bedroom apartment, the location was central, accessible and easy to find, was a safe and secure apartment block, included cereals, tea, coffee etc. Bedding was extremely comfortable. Entire apartment extremely clean, towels and bathroom products provided plus iron and anything you else you could think of. Felt like a nice retreat with beautiful artwork. We will stay here again - thanks again!

After a lot of research we finally came across this accommodation. It seemed fantastic value. I have to say that I was apprehensive about whether it would be as lovely as it was portrayed. I have done a lot of booking online and the glamorous images are rarely the same as the reality. This place is the exception. I loved it. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment. It was the cleanest accommodation I can recall. The service was warm and friendly. It was convenient to explore the city with so many public transport options just out the door. I really felt like there was thought put into the making the stay comfortable with little touches like cereal being provided as well as other things a family might need.
I highly recommend these apartments. I am so pleased with the value for money and even though we have just left I cannot wait to return to Melbourne and stay here. I highly recommend these apartments.

What a great little gem of a place for a short stop, my wife and I were down from Brisvegas for the Formula 1 and had a wonderful stay, comfortable bed and so handy to restaurants and transport, with tram right at the end of Liverpool street and Parliment station about 200m away. We will be back for sure.
