The apartment itself consists of a well-designed contemporary kitchen with good bench space, an integrated fridge and freezer with washing machine, and a stainless steel dishwasher. The open plan living and dining area has heating, beautiful, restored hardwood floorboards, a modern bathroom and bedroom with built in robes make it a very liveable retreat that is in a quiet area but very close to the city. StayCentral on George has a secure entry, landscaped communal gardens, and two on-street parking permits. It is located in the heart of East Melbourne, just minutes' walk to the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena, the CBD, and Bridge Road restaurants and shopping. City trams are only 200m away on Wellington Parade, and Richmond Train Station is also only 200m away. The Epworth Hospital is only 300m away, and the beautiful and historically interesting Fitzroy Gardens are only a short walk at the end of the street. Perfect for two people, this apartment is ideal for someone looking for an inexpensive but well-appointed apartment that is walking distance to the CBD, yet in a fairly quiet, inner suburban location. Your swish Melbourne boutique, serviced apartment includes very modern, high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, towels. 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: I bought in East Melbourne because I think it is an ideal city base. I worked in East Melbourne for 3 years and loved it here. It is city living but not in the hustle and bustle; you have the parks, gardens and leafy streets to relax and unwind. Because East Melbourne has many historic buildings, we love the historic art deco building and the luxury renovation meticulously designed to keep in with the period features of the building and the character of the area. When we stay here, it’s great to be able to walk to Melbourne CBD, Bridge Road Shopping, and Concerts and Sporting Events at the MCG, Rod Laver etc.; and it has such easy access from the freeway. The apartment is also close to public transport, local restaurants and an enchanting local General Store so it’s very convenient staying here.) NB: Many of our apartments are pet-friendly, but not this one. Please enquire with StayCentral if this is what you need. We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations. We also sanitise our beds, carpets and soft furnishings on a regular basis. With more than 800 reviews for StayCentral on TripAdvisor, Airbnb and Google, with a guest rating of 4.9 Stars, why look elsewhere?
