8 Franklin Street Melbourne Victoria 3000

Our Tripadvisor Reviews

"This is our newest property which we don’t have reviews for yet! See what guests say about one of our similar properties nearby"
Left on May 11, 2020 for a stay in Mar 2020
We had a very good 4 days stay at the apartment. The location couldn’t be more central. Right in the CBD, near all the shops, trams, little lane ways etc. The place is very stylish, clean, surprisingly “spacious” considering its a small apartment in the CBD. The staff were very friendly from meeting us there to being helpful during and after our stay. I would definitively recommend it.
