In the heart of Chinatown and walking distance of all major city attractions including Lygon st. Nice well kitted apartment. Gym and pool dinky but ok. Kitchen just what you need. Staff friendly and helpful. Well worth the stay and highly recommended.

Super Location to Restaurants and the Theatres, easy access to shops and Melbourne in general. Clean, tidy and friendly helpful staff. Best Metro stop is 'Parliament' and a short walk from there past the Princess Theatre and hang a left.

We stayed here two nights as part of a break away from the kids and daily life. Such a great location. Expected it to be noisy at night but even Friday night was easy to get to sleep. Staff very helpful and gave us late checkout and organised airport shuttle for us. Apartment had everything we needed. Recommended.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
