One of the best accommodations that we’ve stayed in on a city break. It had it all: fantastic views from both the lounge and the bedroom, great floor-to-ceiling windows with excellent sound-proofing, well-equipped kitchen (and generous provision of complimentary supplies – not only the tea/coffee etc but also the bottles of cooking oil), sweet little balcony, contemporary clean furnishings, light...

We were very happy with our stay at About Melbourne Apartments. We stayed in two different apartments - both were super clean, modern and well equipped. Great location next to Chinatown. We arrived after hours and the self check in was easy. Great communication from the manager- very responsive and helpful. Excellent value for CBD accommodation - will stay again!

Great location just off Bourke Street. Walking distance to anywhere in the city. Great price for a two bedroom apartment in the city. Amelia met us and gave a thorough run through of the amenities. The apartment had everything you needed for a short stay and was very clean and modern. The location was a bit noisy on the weekend... More

I go to Melbourne regularly but it's been a few years since I stayed at About Melbourne Apartments. That has been a mistake on my part. This is a far superior experience than staying in a hotel.

These apartments were in a terrific location. We stayed 2 nights with three kids and we all fitted very comfortably. Low noise levels, lots of storage space and good quality fit out. The 9th floor balcony was a real plus as a place to relax at the end of the day. We really felt it was a 'real melbourne' location.... More

Stayed in Apartment 401, Liverpool St with my wife and small child. This is a compact but very functional place with the added benefit of parking (at a reasonable charge). Considering we were in Melbourne at the height of a pretty cold winter, the apartment was cosy and had good facilities and everything was clean. The Liverpool st building is... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
