The apartment is very clean, most importantly it is value for money, and within walking distance to Queen Victoria Market and State Library of Victoria. If you join any day tour with grey line, there is a pick up point just 5 minutes walk from this apartment.

We stayed in a 2-bed apartment for over a week in November, two in the party with a toddler in tow. The apartments are beautifully furnished, very handy for access to the city and pick up for trips. My only problem is that it's not child friendly. The glass furniture is instantly finger-marked and our two year old fell over... More

convenient area in city, free tram or walk to CBD. Enjoy GYM, Sauna, spa, swimming pool. Skybus & hotel shuttle bus can drop off here. Good spot to see William Barak building. DO NOT DELETE MY REVIEW AGAIN.

Just back from a week at Milano Serviced Apartments. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and keys, and all necessary information, were waiting for us. A pleasant security guard showed us in and located the keys for us. We had a two bedroom apartment on the ninth floor - spotlessly clean with modern furnishings and everything we... More

I stayed overnight for a business meeting. The rooms were clean and large, with plenty of equipment that would be great if you were staying longer, a larger group or on holiday. There was a washer/drier and kitchen that was well equiped. The heater also worked very well. Unfortunately, despite having Foxtel, the TV's were of very poor quality and... More

Managed to get this place for around $160 For the price, the place was functional. Cleanliness was sufficient, but you can see that it is aged a little. Nice view from the very narrow balcony. Place smelled like cheap show-girl perfume for some reason. Late check out only with a hefty additional fee, but you can leave baggage with reception... More

I stayed here with my parents while they were visiting. The apartment has all the necessary facilities one would need including a washer and dryer in the room. However, the rooms are considerably small compared to the price we paid. The best part of this apartment was the location. It's a minute walk to Elizabeth street and is right in... More

This was meant to be my first trip for business and a recon for the hotel/apartment I could stay in for at least 3 nights per week ongoing. Thanks for offering such poor customer service Milano!

Dear Mat, Thanks for your review. It’s disappointing that you did not contact us directly to ask for a credit. Despite our cancellation policy we most certainly would have granted one night credit if we were directly contacted by you. Our only contact was with Expedia who did not confirmed a cancellation and advised that you may still use the... More

The location is excellent but the noise factor would ensure I never stay there again. The walls and floors must be very thin as I could hear every door open and shut AND the people walking around in the room and corridor ABOVE me. Also reception closing at 10.30pm is inconvenient and the TVs did not include ABC 24 even... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
