Recent guest reviews
Well looked after but let down by the very poor quality mattress on the bed which lead to uncomfortable nights with broken sleep.
This is my third trip to Melbourne and this is the best place I have stayed in. The apartment was a decent size. Not huge but very smart in the design. I had a terrace which was an extra bonus, especially with the unusally warm weather they had. The living section was comfortable, bathroom was nice size which had and entrance not only from the bedroom but also from the front hall. There is a washer and dryer inside the unit. The bed I must say was semi-comfortable (they took two twin beds and put them together to create a king sized bed so you had that annoying center crease so you could only sleep on one side or the other). They tried to use a mattress topper to remedy the crease but it still didn't work. This would be my only complaint. The " spa" and " gym " were also a little less desirable. The gym consisted of a universal machine treadmill and bike and the spa was just a big outdoor jacuzzi that was placed the corner of the gym! If these things are important to you, then you might look elsewhere. There are two normal gyms within a 10 min walk. Also be aware that even though they advertise wifi internet, you have to pay daily. It is not included in the price. The location was also perfect! Just a three minute walk to Chapel street. Plenty of resturants and shopping! Woolworths (one of AUS's big grocery stores) just a three minute walk as well in the Vogue building. Best of all the train staion is just acoss the street. 30 secs to the entrance! Two stops to Flinders Street Station, the center of Downtown. The staff were ALL extremely accommodating! From check in to check out! Very friendly and very helpful! If I ever have a choice,I would definitely stay here again! It is slightly more expensive than other accommodations around and I was glad I had a good deal to afford to stay and experience the Punthill! It is a great place!
