All tea, coffee, toiletries, washing and cleaning products and other welcome supplies can be found in the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. You will need to purchase more of these consumables if you need them for the rest of your stay.Car parking is available nearby for a small fee - monthly rates are as little as about $11/day.(Note from the owner: "I designed my beautiful city centre apartment to feel like the apartments I have stayed in around the centre of Paris. The local streets certainly have a European feel to them. I love going to the local cafes and restaurants and being a short walk away from exciting destinations such as Federation Square, the National Gallery of Victoria and SouthBank. And, of course the best shopping - either department store or unique boutique- is just a block away. Enjoy!")
We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.

Our Tripadvisor Reviews
Left on Mar 27, 2020 for a stay in Mar 2020
We were on a 3 month trip of Australia and New Zealand. We stayed at 12 places for between 3-7 nights. This was our favorite place to stay. Fortunately for us we were in self seclusion here for 7 nights after flying in from New Zealand. It was a great place to stay. Plenty of room with 2 bedrooms (which we didn’t need), good size kitchen with working appliances, plenty of storage, actual utensils, plates and silverware that is for grownups (not your typical Ikea or Target plastic utensils). Location is close to everything in the CBD. We walked everywhere. Resturants and pubs close by. Benevente Services meet you at “Little Paris” and were on time and thorough in showing us what we needed to know. We would definitely return here for a visit.
