Security, reserved, undercover parking is included in your rate.
Your serviced apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, living room, a king & queen bedroom, a balcony, laundry facilities and two bathrooms. The balcony and both bedrooms look towards a great view of the CBD, and overlooks a large belt of trees and greenery nearby.
There's are very comfy pillow-top king and queen-sized beds, that blend well with the newly decorated apartment, and additional guests can enjoy a very comfortable foldaway in the living area. You can also ask for a cot or high chair if you need them; for free.
(Note from Owner: whilst Melbourne is our home, we currently live overseas and bought this apartment to enjoy when we often stay in Melbourne. It has been furnished to be comfortable “home away from home” rather than just a serviced apartment. So it is a really great place to stay, and super comfortable. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony (Melbourne weather permitting) whilst taking in the view of Melbourne city. We also love the trams right out front, so it is so easy to get around. You can wander across the road to the Southbank Promenade with all the great restaurants, a short walk to South Melbourne Market for some delicious food, or take a tram ride into the city or to Port Melbourne to enjoy the beach. It is really a perfect place for to enjoy Melbourne)!
Your StayCentral apartment is so close to so many things of interest such as Melbourne Aquarium, Flinder's Street Station, Federation Square (Fed Square),Young & Jackson Hotel, St Paul's Cathedral, Flagstaff Gardens, Treasury Gardens, and Alexandra Gardens, the National Gallery of Victoria, and the Victorian Arts Centre. You can also find Etihad Stadium, Southern Cross Station, the Rialto Building & Stock Exchange, Eureka Tower, and the Melbourne Convention Centre.
Still within slightly further walking distance from Cityside at your Southbank serviced apartment are many icons such as St Patrick's Cathedrals, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kings Domain, the Shrine of Remembrance, Victoria Barracks, Melbourne Park (Tennis Centre) and the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG or the G). The Free City Circle Tram or bus will take you right around the city. Along the way you can stop off at Queen Victoria Market and visit many famous Melbourne shopping locations.
On the Yarra River is the never-ending Southbank Promenade; famous for its world-class restaurants, shops and of course, Crown Casino. In addition, there are multiple food outlets, buskers and arts & crafts events. And the Melbourne Exhibition Centre is just across Clarendon Street, opposite the Casino.
Just pass Southern Cross Station you will land yourself in Docklands; an amazing world of it's own.
More importantly though, are the Melbourne icons; the Arts Precinct, some of Australia's best shopping all around you, (the Flinders Street shops and laneways, Collins St, Bourke St Mall and Melbourne Central), and some of the best and varied restaurants, cafes and bars in the world.
You are only a walk or a tram ride to everything you might want to see in this fabulous city. You won't do better for this type of accommodation in such a fantastic location! You can take a tram to St Kilda, Port Melbourne, Bridge Road shopping strip or Chapel Street shopping & restaurant strip. And CityLink and the Eastern Freeway are easy to get to, connecting you with all major freeways out of the city.
We choose our serviced apartments with two main criteria in mind; they must be central (close to transport, cafes, restaurants, bars and shops), and even though they may be in the thick of things, the actual apartments must be reasonably quiet, so you are not woken up all night.
Our Melbourne serviced apartments are decorated and fitted out under guidance of a very experienced interior decorator for your enjoyment.
Whether you're visiting Melbourne for business for a week or a month, or to enjoy one of Melbourne's famous or cultural events, for a second honeymoon, or for a family holiday - our boutique apartments are the perfect answer for your short or medium term accommodation needs.
