Our Tripadvisor Reviews

"Highly recommended!"

 Left on September 21, 2018  

A great apartment right in the city centre of Melbourne. It’s only 2 minutes to Flinders Street and Federation Square. Many excellent restaurants and cafes within a 5 minute walking radius. Close to shops and supermarkets. Tastefully furnished, on the top floor of a very nice old building that just has been renovated. Excellent location if you want to explore the city and/or if you work in or close to the Melbourne CBD.  Highly recommended!

Perfect for four, your very modern, corporate apartment can easily accommodate seven people, and is amazingly located in the middle of the CBD's cafe, restaurant and shopping district. It is a three-storey apartment, from the 6th floor up, inside a classic, older, Melbourne CBD building with a security entrance. The rooftop deck is a hidden gem, tucked away on the eighth floor, and generally looks toward the south (towards Flinders St Station and Eureka Tower for instance) but there are views in many directions; including down onto gorgeous, historic Flinders Lane below. Your swish Melbourne boutique, corporate apartment includes very modern, high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, towels, a huge kitchen, and has a gorgeous, inner city feel about it. Opening windows allow fresh air through all rooms when you want it, and the bedroom windows are double-glazed. This is only one of many beautiful, boutique, inner-Melbourne, StayCentral apartments that are so well-located near shops, cafes, restaurants and trams; as well as the many attractions that Melbourne has to offer. The rate includes accommodation for up to five guests in fixed beds. Up to seven people can be accommodated using the large sofa bed upstairs.

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. Private car parking is available in a nearby building for a small fee - and extra spaces can be taken at Wilsons Parking nearby. Monthly rates are as little as about $10/day.

(Note from the owner: We have been enjoying weekend visits to the CBD here for many years, and reluctantly need to spend our time elsewhere. I hope that our guests enjoy the apartment and the amazing location as much as we have).


NB: Many of our apartments are pet-friendly!

The trams in the Melbourne CBD are brilliant. From CBD Penthouse, the trams are only 90 metres away on Swanston St or down Degraves St on Flinders Street. You can cross the road to Flinders St Station as well; if you want to go a bit further.

Getting There

It's easy to get to CBD Penthouse. From the airport, you can just take a taxi or uber, or you can hop on the Skybus to Southern Cross Station. From there, it's a short walk and a free tram ride up Collins St to Swanston St, and Little Paris is just around the corner.
