    Awesome place to stay. Lovely people and very helpful and accomodating. Great size appartments. Only thing is if your driving make sure you ask about parks. They only have a few in the basement at a coast per day if not they have off site parking which cost every time you leave.

    While locating in the Melbourne Chinatown, there are many interesting and less-crowded Japanese family restaurants near the hotel. As we are not prepared to join the queues, we are glad to have our meals in these restaurants. Also, it is just a short walk to Bourke st/Russell st tram station.

    With the price we paid, this room is so worthy. Room is so big with all the things we needed: wash machine and equipped kitchen. We really wish we didn't spend the other 2 nights at the expensive fancy hotel. We should have stay here for the whole time while touring at Melbourne.

    Spa room spacious and comfortable”

    Big bathroom with clean spa, comfortable bed and pillows, location close to everything

    Spacious room worth the money because we got it on sale. Comfortable and clean, although there was a lot of dust in the bedroom on the lamps and bedside tables which did make us sneeze. Kitchenette rather small but had everything we needed to cook a small, simple meal. Spa comfortably fit two people although the power of the jets was not consistent: some were weaker than others and we couldn't adjust them to be the same on both ends of the spa, meaning one person would have stronger jets and the other person would have to be sitting down the end with weaker jets. Overall a pleasant stay.

    clean, quiet, well-equipped with culinary apparatus and washing machine in each room

    You can buy fresh ingredients from nearby chinese groceries to cook yourself in room as this will save you a lot of money. It is very expensive to buy from 7 eleven. Dont forget to try out the koroko ramen, dim sum and shanghai dumplings in chinatown. You can get super cheap and quality day tour along the Swanston street from chinese speaking tourist guide such as extragreen. It cost only 140 AUD for each person for 3 full day tour to ballarat, phillip island and great ocean road. It is also 10 minutes walking distance from famous landmark such as bourke street mall, queen victoria market, victoria national library, federation square, collins street shopping mall, and Cooks cottage.

    Awesome Apartment”

    Everything you need for an apartment

    Was greeted warmly by the staff at the reception when I first check-in. After knowing that it was my first time staying with Punthill Apartment, the receptionist took the trouble of explaining how and what we should do when we enter the room (i.e. Instead of slotting the room key next to the door to switch on the electricity in the room, we just need to switch on the main switch etc) The room was not only very spacious but also well furnished with all you need for an apartment i.e Sofa, Stove, Sink, Oven, Fridge, Washing Machine, Bath Tub, Heater etc. Thought that it was pretty hard to locate the hotel despite its prime location (near Melbourne City Centre) as there were no prominent sign board/ logos indicating the location of the hotel (The only sign available was right outside the entrance, which was pretty hard to spot if one were to walk along the walkway). It would be ideal if the Punthill Apartment signboard could be moved nearer to to the walkway near the one way road. In addition, in most hotels, maps will be provided to all its guests. Though the city map were provided at the reception desk, if the map could include the "We are here" sign, it would be easier for the guests to navigate around. Setting aside the 2 points for improvement, there is only one word from me during my stay with Punthill - Awesome!

    Nice hotel, good location”

    Excellent location, efficient staff, nice decor.
    Some noise at night. Poor bathroom lighting.

    Excellent location in Chinatown, staff were relatively friendly and helpful, rooms nicely decorated and clean, relatively new. Taxis easily available nearby. Bathroom clean but poor lighting. Very close to neighbouring buildings and also some noise at night due to city centre location and people out drinking. I would stay here again.

    Not a bad place. They need to replace the fittings and tile grout on the spa, they are old and discoloured which was the first thing you see when you walk in making the place seem dirty and run down. A few little touch ups would make it a great room! Walking distance to everything and nice and quiet.

    We love staying at Punthill Little Bourke. Perfect location for access to Chinatown and all the wonderful restaurants, also close to Princess Theatre for the latest shows The apartments are .wonderful, modern, with all required amenities of a self contained, also with daily house keeping. Parking is available just around the corner in Russell Street and is charged per exit, which is much better than most city hotels who charge per night. Highly recommend this hotel and stay as often as possible

    Good location, especially to the theatres, Chinatown and Spring Street end of the city. The facilities are quite adequate for the time spent there. Tricky for travellers wanting to be dropped right at the door as it is in a laneway. Otherwise compact apartment with kitchen facilities. The spa suite wouldnt be suitable for anyone with difficulties getting in and out of the bath as the shower is over the bath. Bed comfortable and pillows good.

    Everything was well organised and spot on. When booking with Agoda i mentioned that we arrived on a flight at 8am so the earlier to room could be ready the better (fully understanding this may not be possible) however room was ready early. They also had no problem arranging for the 2 b/room apartment to be two king beds for couples travelling together without kids. Location in Chinatown cant be beaten for convenience.

    good location, very uncomfy couch ”

    location, value

    Kind bed was zip style so you could feel the ridge between them, was ok if you only kept to your side. Couch was ridiculous and i wouldn't even sit on it. It was a pull out sofa lounge but the mattress on it was no more than a mattress topper, given there was no volume, the lounge just sagged into the middle causing you to sit on an angle. I pulled it out on my day off and it was like sleeping on planks of wood. Asked to have another mattress the night i looked after my 6 year old but it was an extra $40, she slept on the lounge - lucky she is small. Huge bathroom with spa was nice. pool room badly ventilated and stunk of chemicals, gym consisted of a few weights and an exercise ball. Cleaning staff lovely, reception Ok.

    location, service, facilities

    Stayed 5 nights at this apartment(hotel) last week. We first booked it because of the facilities available in the room (kitchenette, washing machine and dryer) as these are essential because we have a 21months old toddler with us. We were definitely not disappointed at all! All facilities worked well (except for the spa bath tub, we had no intention of using it anyway so it was okay), housekeeping was done everyday as we need the room to be clean for our child. Service was great at the front desk. Helped us with booking of taxi to the airport on our last day. They also allowed us to put our luggage for safe keeping before we check in on the first day (as we arrived early) and after we check out on our last day (as our flight was in the evening). Location is definitely great, right in the middle of Melbourne CBD. It is along the Chinatown street (which is Little Bourke Street) and asian food and supermarket is available right at your doorstep down the streets. It is also in the free tram zone, and nearby the Parliment metro station. Will stay here again if I were to visit MEL in the future :)
