Trip Report Melbourne City Holiday Apartment

Jump to last reply

For anyone looking to stay in the centre of Melbourne, I can recommend the Punthill Apartments, 267 Flinders Lane. DH & I have just spent 4 nights there, and will happily return for any future visit.
If you request a ‘walk in’ shower (as distinct from one over a bath), you will be given one of the 11 rooms i.e. 211,311 etc. These rooms are located on a quiet corner of the building, right away from the street noise. If you sign up to their membership program before making a booking, then wifi is included with your accommodation charge.

Flinders Lane is very convenient for accessing the free city trams, close to the river and Flinders Street Station as well as the interesting arcades and laneways.

This wasn’t our first visit to Melbourne, so this time we weren’t so interested in visiting iconic sites; we spent a great part of our time wandering those arcades and laneways, and really enjoying the relaxed life. The wide tree lined streets mean that this city has a lovely open and welcoming feel to it.
