Enjoy all the delights of Melbourne in your own, central and stylish apartment on the 18th Floor. Drink coffee on the balcony and watch hot air balloons float by at sunrise, or a cocktail at sunset as the rowers sail down the river and the fire works start at the casino. There isn’t a better view in Melbourne!
You’re ideally placed right on the free city circle tram line or just walk the 10 minutes to Spencer St Station or Central Station. The best cafes and restaurants are at your doorstep, whether it’s a saunter across the river to the famous Southbank precint and casino or a walk through the many wonderful laneways of Melbourne. All within 15 minutes walk is the Convention Centre, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Botanic Gardens and Federation Square. The two CBD railway stations are also an easy walk as are the sporting grounds of Rod Laver Arena (tennis), MCG and Ethiad Stadiums (cricket and football).
The studio has everything you need, newly renovated and sunny with travertine floors, a comfortable sprung wall bed, TV, kitchenette with microwave and coffee machine, fridge, washing machine and dryer and a full bathroom. There’s also a heated indoor swimming pool for those feeling energetic and of course wifi.
From the beginning of August we now also provide cable TV i.e. Foxtel TV and a DvD player for your favourite DvDs on the flat screen TV. For the avid readers, we have a very private small library.
Ann and Peter are very happy to share all their Melbourne secrets, favourite cafes and restaurants and how to easily get to where you need to go, or simply leave you to your own privacy.
Minimum stay is 2 nights, but send us a line to inquiry about one night stays.
This is a private residential floor of a hotel, so no parties or group bookings, this is the perfect place for a couple or single person.
Peter and Ann were excellent hosts. They kept open lines of communication from booking, to arrival and even departure. We arrived after midnight and they were so accommodating to wait up for us and show us around their place. Their listing was true to the real thing. Their place was very clean, had an amazing view of South Bank and had everything we needed for the perfect weekend in Melbourne. Next time I'm in Melbourne, I hope to stay at their lovely place again.
Location! Location! Location! Peter and Ann's Room with a View was absolutely perfect for our stay in Melbourne. It was pristine, perfectly appointed, cozy and the view was INCREDIBLE!!! Very close to everything in the CBD. Tons of restaurants, bars and sights to see. Peter and Ann were incredibly communicative and helpful. They went out of their way to accommodate our arrival and departure. Upon our arrival, we had asked about live jazz music. We found a three page print out of venues under our door the next morning. I cannot recommend this property and it's lovely owner enough. Hope to return to the Room with a View very soon. Thanks, Peter and Ann!!!
A simple and sleek apartment in an absolutely wonderful location!
A warm welcome on arrival and beautiful gestures like umbrellas when it rains!
Thank you, Peter & Ann
We hope to stay again soon!
The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is in a good area of the city with trams a short walk away. The room itself looks over the Yarra River and Wifi/Foxtel included which was nice. The hosts put maximum effort into their apartment leaving things such as guides and local magazines which we appreciated. Would recommend it to others.
Hoewel ik pas de middag van mijn aankomst het verzoek aan Peter en Ann deed, kreeg ik direct antwoord en zorgen ze er voor dat het appartement klaar was.
Bij mijn aankomst stond Peter mij buiten op straat al op te wachten en legde daarna uit hoe alles werkte. Erg aardig.
Het appartement ligt op een ideale plek. Aan de Yara rivier en uitkijkend over de Southbank, een uitgaans centrum met restaurants en het casino.
In het appartement is een schat aan informatie over Melbourne te vinden. Er is ook een zwembad.
Ik ga er graag weer terug.
Peter and Ann were absolutely wonderful hosts. They made us feel very welcome and at home. The room itself was perfect in every way, with the most stunning view! We will definitely be back. Would recommend to anyone!
My wife and I stayed at Peter and Ann’s lovely modern city apartment for three nights and all I can say is location, location, location! The apartment is situated in Melbourne’s CBD and is a short walk to the tram. The best part about the apartment is that it is on the 18th floor and has a fantastic “front row” view of the Yarra River. Watching the sunrise from the balcony was amazing. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. And our host, Peter and Ann, were amazing. Peter had great communication, emails were extremely detailed and helpful in regards to directions and transportation from the airport to the apartment. Would highly recommend their place to everyone.
