Our Tripadvisor Reviews

"Fantastic apartment with everything you could need!"
 Left by Julie W on May 15, 2019 for a stay in Apr 2019

We loved our stay at this apartment in Essendon. It was really clean, comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed. Excellent location, 5 mins walk to the station, cafes and shops downstairs are all great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Very quiet for apartment living, we didn’t hear any neighbours. Safe undercover parking. A short walk to lovely Queens Park and Moonee Ponds. It was all very easy booking through Stay Central. I would highly recommend this apartment!

You won't find anything else like this two-bedroom apartment (with a study with a double sofa bed) in Essendon. If you want good quality accommodation in Essendon, this is it. If you just want an everyday, cheap stay, this property won't be what you need.

This very comfortable apartment is in a 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 not too far away.

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 generous balcony with 180 degree, commanding views from the City itself, east and north to the Dandenong ranges. You can sit back and enjoy the sense of open space, or simply entertain family and friends in this large, private space with the large sun shades when needed. There are two queen bedrooms and a double sofa bed if needed. Excellent facilities include a 40" UHD Smart TV with free Netflix in the living area, as well as a 43" TV in the master bedroom. Unlimited Wi-Fi and security, reserved, undercover car parking is included.

Perfect for four, this very comfortable corporate apartment is brilliantly located; in a modern city-edge precinct right in Essendon, and only a stones throw to cafes, shop, restaurants, gym and pool  at Windy Hill Fitness Centre that is 2 minutes down the road in the nearby village. The trains are very close by, 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 the Moonee Valley and Flemington Racecourses. Melbourne Airport (Tullamarine) is very close as well.

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

​​​​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. 

Note from the owner: "We bought this apartment six years ago because of its top location. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, gym, swimming pool, public transport, are all at your doorstep; plus a lovely view of the city from our balcony. Fantastic".

NB: Many of our apartments are pet-friendly!

We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.

We also sanitise our beds, carpets and soft furnishings on a regular basis.
