“Great location and great apartment”
Reviewed 18 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Three of us stayed in the Royal View Carlton for eight days and highly recommend the apartment. First, the location is terrific: quiet, lovely residential street only one block away from Lygon Street where we found several excellent restaurants and coffee shops, and a short two-three block walk to the free tram stop. We loved being able to walk to a delightful dinner every evening and take a free tram to the city center (where for several days we caught another free tram to the Australian Open).

Second, the apartment uses space very effectively. The living area is spacious with three sofas (each of us claimed one), an excellent TV (where we watched the matches we couldn't afford to attend), two great showers, and all the necessities and accoutrements we needed. The view from the living area and one of the bedrooms was exceptional--as was the large balcony.

However, we did not use the balcony as it was HOT--which leads to the one drawback of the apartment. The living area has an air conditioner that works well but the bedrooms are not air conditioned. And there was no cross ventilation, which made nights warm. We were in Melbourne during record-setting heat; in normal times, the fans in the bedrooms probably would have been adequate.

Overall, we loved the apartment. Jenni was accessible and easy to deal with, and when back in Melbourne, we would contact her again to stay in the Royal View Carlton.

A great location, well-presented, spotless and charmingly decorated apartment. Close to parks, shopping and around the corner to the huge variety of restaurants in Lygon Street. An easy walk to Queen Victoria Markets and convenient trams to the CBD.

“Great”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I stayed in Royal View Carlton for a couple of weeks. It is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of eating places and tram routes. The living room and the master bedroom have great views of the Royal Exhibition Building. The balcony is very spacious.
All in all, highly recommended...a home away from home.

We highly recommend this facility! There really isn't a lot to say about this flat beyond the review title. It is easy to walk to the free public inner city buses, and a whole street of restaurants is only a block away! The balcony is great, with a nice view of the old exhibition center, and most mornings we were treated to several hot air balloons gliding by. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable. I could go on and on. The only caveat, is that the underneath parking garage is very tight, so you're better off to NOT have a large car.

We were thrilled when we walked into this large open plan space, sparkling clean!
Everything you require for a comfortable stay is provided. Fully equipped kitchen, was excellent for dining in & entertaining our daughter & friends.
Location is 15 min walk to Bourke St, tram nearby, Lygon St & it all has to offer is around the corner! Lovely to have the wrap around terrace, we felt like we were in Paris with the view of Royal Exhibition dome out in front!
Hopefully we can return sometime soon! Very helpful owner who responds very quickly with any queries.
