Our Tripadvisor Reviews

"A home away from home"
 Left on Nov 28, 2017 for a stay in Nov 2017 by Melissa W
Staying at Staycentral in Essendon was a pleasure. The apartment has all the comforts of home in a stylish, modern and spacious package. A great central location between the city and airport makes this a fantastic spot for interstate travellers and locals alike. The building is very secure and there is great parking facilities onsite. We would definitely recommend Staycentral.

You won't find anything else like this luxury, three-bedroom apartment in Essendon. If you want high quality accommodation in Essendon, you have found it. If you just want an everyday, cheap stay, this stunning property won't be what you need.


This brand new, extra large, luxurious apartment is in an brilliant location for a city stay; close to the city but not in it. You can easily enjoy its first class entertainment, arts, sporting and social options or just as easily wander to nearby cafes, restaurants and shops; including a DFO and large shopping centre nearby.


The sense of space and light in this spacious apartment creates a warm living space that is easy to live in, and is accompanied by modern appliances and premium quality finishes. Stylish and smart, efficient layouts allow for more living space whilst maintaining access to all modern appliances when required.


This spacious apartment includes a large balcony with 180 degree, commanding views from the City itself, north to the Macedon ranges. You can sit back and enjoy the expansive sunsets and watch the big airlines float in and out of Tullamarine Airport in the distance, or simply entertain family and friends in this large, private space. Every bedroom has a great view. There is a king bed, splittable queen bed and a double bed. Resort style facilities include a massive 65" UHD Smart TV with free Netflix in the living area, as well as a 48" TV in the master bedroom. Unlimited Wi-Fi and security, reserved, undercover car parking for three cars are all included.


Perfect for six, this luxury corporate apartment is brilliantly located; part of the brand new Alexa Park Residences building in a modern city-edge precinct right in Essendon, and only a stones throw to cafes, shops and restaurants in the nearby village; and the city trams are right out the front in the palm tree-lined Mount Alexander Road. You can easily explore the unique boutiques and indulge in renowned designer brands. With all you need on your doorstep and a brilliant view, you will love this apartment and the location. This is also very close to Moonee Ponds and Flemington Racecourse, and Tullamarine Airport is very close as well.


Your luxury apartment includes high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, towels, and a full kitchen and dedicated laundry, as well as two outdoor settings on the very long west-facing balcony. There's also a cot and high chair available for free if needed. Don't forget to bring linen for the cot.


Note from the owner: "When we built this building, we wanted only the best design and fittings for all of our apartments. Nestled along one of the Melbourne’s elite heritage boulevards, this penthouse was also designed to maximize views and provide a real luxury experience. Large spacious living areas and a gourmet kitchen make for a place to entertain and unwind. Our sub-penthouse is a short walk to the vibrant retail strip of Essendon Village on Mt Alexander Road and it abuts the leafy Cliff Allison Park. With the number 59 tram at its doorstep you can find yourself amidst Queen Victoria Market and Melbourne CBD in no time. We hope you enjoy our penthouse as much as we do".
