Our apartment at Punthill Manhattan on Flinders Lane was excellent. It was spacious, comfortable and very well appointed in all details. The building seems to be a converted warehouse or workshop and the developers have played to that in their renovation. Exposed concrete pillars and beams and cleaned brickwork give a clear hint to the building's past. there are three, two and single bedroom apartments and ours was one of the latter. a good deep space offers adequate space in the bathroom, bedroom and the lounge / kitchen / diner. soetimes the open plan approach to cooking, eating and relaxing space is done to extra facilities out of minimal space but that charge couldn't be justified here. each area almost declares its own space and in no area do you feel crowded. light floods in through the wall width window at one end of the apartment, although the passage of sun dictates that the light blinds need to remain closed to create a pleasing shade.
the kitchen, bedroom and living space are all well equipped. We found the oven to be very good, the microwave and toaster more than adequate and there's a dishwasher to minimise those kitchen hours! Storage space is well thought out and there are quite sufficient utensils and crockery for four, and cookware for a range of options. In the bedroom there'sa generous double wardrobe and there are bedside cabinets either side of the bed. The bathroom has a large mirror wall over the vanity unit and a shower over the bathtub. Water pressure and supply were both excellent. An added bonus in the bathroom is a very useful washer and dryer with clear, precise instructions for optimum performance in both cycles.
Put simply, a couple could easily live in this apartment, and I would feel happy recommending it to a couple with a young family too. Both of our adjacent apartments were occupied during our stay and we never heard any noise from them at all. Excellent value for a most enjoyable stay.

When 3 ladies want to go away for a girls long weekend/go see a show weekend, it is always difficult to find suitable accommodation. As much as we are BF's we still do not want to share a bed. We stayed at The Punthill Manhatten which is apartment accommodation. Apartment Type TWO BED DELUXE-MANHAT.Q/Q/S/ Location 57 Flinders Lane, Melbourne

The apartment was two queen bedded rooms (one ensuited) with a 3rd much smaller room off the living area. We had to draw straws to see who got the smaller room but even though the third person really did draw the short straw, having this separate room and the large living area was still very acceptable. Next trip only two of us will have to draw straws as obviously our friend will be "upgraded" to a larger room.

Being in Flinders Street we were a close walk to transport, shops, Shows.

We can thoroughly recommend this place and look forward to returning for another girlie weekend very soon.

Stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment for one night, it is a spacious apartment. Good sized bathroom. Staff were friendly and let us use the jacuzzi after 9pm. Only negative it was a little noisy at night.

We have just stayed here for 10 days to go to the tennis, so were paying top dollars for our apartment. These apartments are perfectly located to walk to the tennis (or anywhere in the Melbourne CBD for that matter). However, as we stayed in 3 different apartments we feel well qualified to say the apartments are very tired. The first night we were in an apartment in the basement - very dark, no view and no room for a case in either bedroom! We then shifted to the 5th floor which at least didn't have a bare concrete roof but did have some windows, once again nowhere in the bedrooms for our cases. As the airconditioning gave up in the heat we shifted again for our last night to the only 2 bedroom deluxe apartment they have - we had stayed there before and it is definitely the best 2 bedroom apartment they have got.
Overall, I agree with other reviewers about the inadequate showers and general tiredness, light bulbs not working, etc although the kichen/living areas are fine.
We found the staff were excellent and most helpful and did their best to resolve the problems we had but they can't change the layout and carry out the badly needed renovations. We won't be going back here until we know the property has been brought back up to scratch to provide value for the amount charged.

Room Tip: Get as high up in the building as you can!

We have just used Punthill Manhattan and it did not live up to all its description. Yes, living room spacious and airy and pleasant. But the bathroom was tired and needs updating; the shower was over a very narrow bath and very cramped and rather dangerous for getting in/out. The bedding was strange: the bottom unfitted sheet was too small for the bed and rode up, the blankets were some cheap sort of material and looked rather worn. Not what we expected fro other experiences of city apartments.
