Feels like Home at Melbourne One in Lonsdale”

To begin with the Staff in Melbourne 1 Bldg. on Lonsdale was very accomodating and friendly especially the Front Desk Staff named Chris. Ibrahim of Melbourne One Front Desk was very accommodating as well. The place was clean, elevators were fast & we felt at home. There was just the noise from the construction area during our stay but all was good. The location is within the CBD Tram area which was very convenient for tourists. Take the Free Tram #58 from Lonsdale (3 stops away) or from Flagstaff (2 stops) to Queen Victoria Market. You can also walk to QVM from the hotel. You can also take the free tram to the shopping areas, Aquarium, Zoo and other tourists areas. Just across are Coles and Spencer Outlet, Southern Cross Station, restaurants and coffee shops are nearby. Cleaning service can only be availed if you stay for atleast 1 week but you can request for fresh towels and other needs, make sure to request at daytime to get it on the same day. Will definitely book here again!

Spacious 3 bdrm apartment”

Decided to book here despite the slight higher pricing compared to other apartments in the city. It's near to Coles Supermarket which is a plus since it opens from 6am-12am. In the same bldg there's an Asian supermkt (opens much later) stocks up good variety of Asian products (instant noodles, sauces, rice, snacks, etc.) You have to walk to La Trobe st (near Flagstaff Park) to get to the City Circle Tram, but it's not too far, just a few mins walk. We were placed at the apartment called Australis, which is at the corner of Little Lonsdale and Merriman ln. We were on 10th fl, corner unit facing the Flagstaff Park which is nice. We even spot some hot air balloons from afar early in the morning! QVM is walkable distance, walk to La trobe st, through the Flagstaff park and cross to QVM. One thing to note, the reception entrance is actually accessed from Merriman Ln. We went in 2 entrance at d front dat turns out to be sales gallery and a bldg lobby. I wish they shld inform customers

Excellent stay, clean facility, big living space”

We really enjoyed our stay at MSSA Lonsdale. At first we were apprehensive with some of the negative review at the time of booking but we decided to give a try. Yes it is true that over the weekends nights, there were loud music from the ground level but we were so dead beat from all the sight seeing that we slept through the night. The rooms and floor were clean and the kitchen was well equipped. They even provide some washing detergent for dishes and washing powder for the clothes. Very important consideration is that it is just less than 10 mins walk from Southern Cross Station and there were foods and supermarkets within the vicinity. So I would definitely recommend this MSSA Lonsdale to any friend who are going to visit Melbourne.

Excellent location, excellent property with some minor drawbacks”

Pro: Modern facility, excellent location, convenient parking in the same building. Con: The real address to the property is on Little Lonsdale Street, and the real address to the reception is on Merriman Lane. Why tell clients you're on Lonsdale Street when you clearly aren't? Speaking from my experience, I had to get out of the car to find the true location of the property, and it was NOT FUN wasting my time on Lonsdale Street during heavy rain. It was completely avoidable. Lost a point on Location for this reason. Generally quite clean, but our room was next to a garbage chute so the outside of the property smelled bad, good thing the inside is odour-free. Lost a point on Cleanliness because of the garbage chute.

Well maintain, clean apartment, full kitchen amenities, washing machine/dryer and WiFi free. Great view of Melbourne in the night and morning for those who stay at a higher level. Apartment is located near southern cross station where skybus alighting point for city Melbourne is. Right above the station there are Coles super market, Crown Asia Super Market, spencer outlet and many more. It’s walkable distance to free tram zone too. I would recommend this apartment if you arrive Melbourne late at night. For those who wake up late in the morning please be aware that there’s construction right opposite the hotel. Food: For those who crave for Korean BBQ or Thai Food (Mr Nice Guy Resturant) do check out Healeys Lane which locate between little lonsdale Street and lonsdale street. FYI: Late check in after office hour was smooth and hazard free. You will receive an email 24 hours prior to your arrival. Just follow the instruction after arrival to apartment. This property will place a credit card authorization of AUD 100 at check-in. (Amount will be different base on your room booking.)

PROs: Excellent Location, Clean apartment with all needed facilities, Value for money CONs: Actually nothing, one small feedback, we have reached apartment at 7am itself, we knew that our check in time at 2pm. Staffs accommodated our luggage, we have requested them to call/msg us once our unit is ready for check in since we were out for Breakfast. They told us they will contact us once unit is available but didn't contact us till 2pm. It would have been better if they just msg and inform us. Love this place and stay again if come back to Melbourne again

We were in the 2br apartment with 2 bathrooms, which was nice and big. Location is convenient, with Spencer Street station less than a 5min walk away. Building also had secured parking which can be paid for separately, so that's great as we had a rental car. No tram lines on Lonsdale itself, so nearest is a block down on Bourke Street. Very friendly staff and accommodating! Will definitely stay here again on our next trip.

Everything on this stay flawless. I love hotel location, clean and very nice view of city.Short walk to market and train station, bus stop is right in front. Little confusion here is Short Stay property is some walk distance called Australis and if you have big luggage that is uncomfortable to walk as there are some construction and narrow side walk. Reception is great kept my luggage until check in time . Definitely stay again if I’m back to Melbourne

Weekend Getaway”

We arrived and were greeted immediately with a smile and had no issues at all during the entire stay, we had a great time in Melbourne and our accommodation was a big part of that, mainly due to when we needed to rest we had a quiet and comfortable place to stay. We were impressed with the room and had no issues. If I had to be picky, I would say the lifts take a long time to get to you, however it is a 45 floor building, so it was justified...Great stay, will stay again for sure.
