Henrietta, inner-city studio living

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Lygon Street, Carlton, VIC 3053, Australia

There are several types of people in this world and some of them are apartments. Henrietta is no different, she was born when coffee was black and damper was dinner. Fortunately coffee and cuisine have come a long way and Henrietta will indulge you.

The Space

Henrietta is a beautifully clever and spacious old girl, nested in the heart of Carlton, on the northern fringe of Melbourne’s Hoddle grid. Resting on a quiet laneway nearby Argyle Square, she enjoys the mouthwatering Italian delights of Lygon Street and its entertainment artery to the city. She wanders the nearby park sipping coffee from top baristas, venturing to Nova Cinema for an art house classic or just gets lost in the Trades Hall.

She is ideal for couples with a kid or travelling dous and trios who need a central spot to spend the night. She is cosy and warm with plenty of natural light filling her up in the evening.

If you’re looking for a central location, self-contained and surrounded by good food and entertainment, Henrietta is the girl for you.

Guest Access

  • Just had a fantastic stay at Henrietta, thank you Linton, location was excellent, Lygon St food, Cinema Nova and Readings bookstore add to the experience, with lots to keep you entertained, plus easy access to the City and transport at your doorstep. The space was just right for our needs and expectation. Would stay again.

  • What can I say . . . Henrietta is everything that she says she is... and the Lygon Street precinct is the best it's been in the 25 years I've been visiting it. I also appreciated Linton messaging me before, during and after my stay to make sure everything was in order.

  • Henrietta was great. Stayed here for two weeks during an intense time during study and it was perfectly situated close to the CBD. Although it's on Lygon Street, you can hardly hear any noise from the street or the neighbours. The apartment is well equipped so you can save some money and cook up meals in the kitchenette. Really happy to have stayed here. Linton was very helpful in answering any questions and making sure our stay was comfortable. Thanks!

Beyond A Room
I have a background in architecture & design and spent many years travelling across the world as a guest on airbnb and met a lot of hosts while working as a photographer for airbnb too. I've parked myself in Melbourne and started a business called Beyond a Room, managing accommodation on behalf of the owners. Check out our listings, we work closely with the owners to give guests a truly unique and local perspective on the location.
