“Birthday long weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

We were recomended this hotel by our travel agent who said it was in a great location, modern, clean and quiet. I seemed to be too good to be true, well it was everything the agent said and more. The location was fantastic with everything within walking distance. First impressions when arriving into Chinatown was 'what have we done' but this was put to rest when we walked into the foyer to see a modern city hotel with friendly staff greeting us. Rooms were clean, spacious and had up todate decor. We had booked a 2 bedroom appartment but this was unavailable and were give two speparate rooms at then end of a corridor with adjoining doors. This was fantastic as we were traveling with 2 teenage children and they could come and go as they please leaving us to quality adult time together. Kitchenette has plenty of plates, bowls glasses and cutlery for when eating in. Only downside we found was the pillows were not that comfortable, extra blanket on bed would have been good. Front office member Stuart was always very helpfull and delivered extra blankets to room for next night. 7-11's and bottle shops near buy for forgotten items. MCG tour and museum is a must for sports buffs. Would stay again and recomend to others.

Excellent location for sightseeing in Melbourne. Almost opposite the Chinese Museum and close to free tram and shuttle bus stops. Federation Square a 10-15 min walk away. Front desk very helpful and friendly.

Rooms, spacious and well equipped. We requested a quiet room and that we got, the cost was being opposite the air conditioning units but I guess nowhere in this block has a view so would prefer the quiet. The rooms were ergonomically peculiar, no wardrobe in the bedroom alcove, next to kitchen area. Bathroom large spa bath, wc squashed into corner with loo roll holder jutting into side and washing line cutting across wc to opposite wall.......odd! The sink was v small and no dishwasher but plates, etc all provided and microwave. The downside, and a bugbear of mine, no free wifi but a public computer provided. Everything very clean.

I would stay again and hope by then they had seen the way to provide free wifi for all!

Dear FromGB,
Thanks for your review of Punthill Little Bourke on TripAdvisor,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed the apartments, service and location of this apartment hotel in Melbourne CBD.
Hotels in Australia do still generally charge for wifi, but we are sure it will become common place in the near future to provide this service free.

My wife and I spent 1 night at this hotel on a quick trip to Melbourne.
It is well positioned in the Chinatown area and very close walking distance to the central CBD of Melbourne.
Our welcome at reception was friendly, helpful and quick.
Our initial thoughts were of concern as the passageway..carpet and walls were looking a bit tired...however, we were very pleasantly pleased on entering our room on the 6th floor.
It was a really good size, modern, clean with excellent amenities.
There was a cooktop, microwave, fridge and washing machine available.
Other than the fridge, we did not require any of these but it was great to know they are there if we were staying again for a few days.
The room was very quiet, except early the next morning when rubbish was being collected in the laneway below. This is a problem in any big city where there is a daily collection from the city laneways and not something anyone has much control over I am afraid.
Reception allowed us to store baggage for a couple of hours after checkout which was very much appreciated and we could have used toilet or change facilities if required at that time.
The Airport bus provided a free drop off and pickup which was excellent.
Would certainly stay here again and recommend as a good value option in central Melbourne, certainly if you want to be in the Chinatown area or close to theatres and many good restaurants.

I have been staying in this serviced apartment since openly more than 6 years ago.
The apartment location is in the heart of Melbourne Chinatown and central to all locations.
Most importantly, the apartment is very clean and the staffs are well mannered and helpful.
The apartment room rate is attractive and I would consider the rate is best for the money. The Greek, Italian and Vietnamese food are stone throw around besides the Chinese.
I would say the apartment cleanliness is equal to any 4-5 Stars hotel. I would strongly recommend this serviced apartment to anyone going to Melbourne.

Room Tip: rooms facing the front of apartment.

Fantastic location and amazing staff! We went to Melbourne to watch an NRL game and not being familiar with Melbourne, just picked a hotel randomly and we were so glad we chose Punthill Little Burke. Amazing restaurants at the doorstep, so easy to walk to great destinations within the CBD. The staff could not have been more friendly and the room was great! A bit shout out to the New Zealand lady at reception (sorry I didn't get your name) who was really helpful and always greeted you with a smile :) Have recommended the place to family and friends!

Stay 4th August. 3rd time stay here.has been taken over by new people this year, but service is great. friendly, cheery and professional. Make you feel very welcome and at home. I love it becuase of the location. food everywhere within a block theres indian chinese greek lebenese thai vietnamese. steak and chips , anything !!. 24hr clubs 2 close by. !!, if you feel the need for a hearty meal at 5am. .Walk through to Bourke st and catch a tram to the rest of Melbourne or walk and see the sights. went in August. Still plenty of street entertainment and interesting goings on. Missed having a DVD player. A bike /treadmill in the gym would have been good...

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking Cohen Place. rooms at the side/back face another building.
