“Excellent location”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

We stayed here for 6 nights, and so enjoyed the space and the ability to cook your meals if you wanted to. There is a Coles supermarket just 5 minutes away around the corner. And if you want to eat out everything is on the doorstep. Our room was quite, and the staff really helpfull.
I see a few comments here about the lifts - yes they are a bit quirky and slow, however it gives you time to put your lippy on and gave us a laugh each time we used them and on other occasions its a convesation starter with other quests. We would definately stay there again.

Generally the apartments exceeded our expectations - affordable, clean, kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom, quirky decor, friendly staff and prime location right across from some of Melbourne's best cafes and best coffee (we drank a lot of coffee).

The only things to watch are the lifts - at one stage they appeared to not be working as we waited for ages, there are no safes for your valuables (being on the 1st floor with no locks on the windows was a little of a concern), but the biggy is the noise. Thanks to other reviews, I was aware they would be noisy, but it's really pretty bad with the rubbish trucks and street cleaners going seemingly going all night, and the noise from the cafes (including the staff knocking off of their shift and yelling loads).

In saying that, we would stay there again, we would just make sure we took some good ear plugs.

My Daughter and I spent 2 nights at the Punthill Apts and once again found them to be everything we needed. The twin bedroom was large and the bathroom very clean. The lounge and kitchen area are great and I especially like the way they are serviced daily. The position of the Apts is convenient for all our shopping in Melbourne hopefully we will return again next year.

For 3 in a 2 bedroom in the middle of Melbourne this was very good value .Sure the floor boards were creaky & the decor a bit quirky but it was very good. Only issue was the old keys & to lock the door as they did not a auto lock.But that was pointed out at check in .

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the heart of Melbourne. Our apartment was located above the Laneways Precinct. Very clean and well serviced. First night was noisy from cafes below but we didn’t take any notice thereafter. Close to many amenities including trams; trains and buses all within walking distance.
The front desk concierge (and staff in general) were extremely helpful in making our stay an enjoyable one. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend to any future travellers.

Have just stayed here for 5 nights with my two adult daughters. Recommend the two bedroomed apartment with ensuite and separate toilet. Very clean and well serviced. Had everything we needed and very comfortable and spacious. Would definitely stay here again. Ideally placed within close distance to shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms on south side would be quieter away from the noise of the diners in the lane, but I personally...

This apartment block is right in the heart of the very popular lane way cafe area of Melbourne. Just step outside and you are there.

You do get a bit of noise from the area though, particularly the trams. We got used to it after a while, but I use ear plugs anyway where ever I am.
There is double glazing to the bedroom windows.

Well appointed, not too small, well equipped, a/c to both rooms, very clean.
Late model appliances, roomy kitchen, and serviced daily too.

We had quick response to a maintenance request, and found all staff very friendly and helpful.

Would stay there again. Absolutely ideal location if you want to see the city area.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if street noise bothers you.
