About this listing
Located in the city (the north end), this apartment is on the 18th floor of the modern Milano Apartments, in a prime position to experience Melbourne and all it has to offer. It is less than a 2 minute walk from the Victoria market and the Italian restaurant precinct of Carlton. Trams stops are located at each end of the street and the Melbourne Central train station is one block away. You can take trams and trains to get you all over Melbourne. Also in very close proximity is the State Library and the Old Exhibition buildings containing the IMAX picture theatre. If you like sport and want to check out an Australian Rules Footy match my apartment is easy walking distance to the biggest stadiums in Melbourne, including the tennis centre.The apartment is surrounded by cafes, shops, bars, pubs, boutiques and restaurant strips. Aldi is located at the bottom of the building. Festival Hall is a 10 minute walk if you want to catch a concert, the same applies for Bennetts Lane if you are into quality jazz, every night of the week.
The Milano Apartment complex includes a Tennis court, pool, a massive gymnasium, sauna and spa all of which are available for your personal use for free. There is also an 18 seat Cinema room with full surround sound that I can book on your behalf if you give me enough notice.
A swipe card is used for all residents to enter the building and to obtain access to the floor on which the apartment resides. I am super flexible with check in times. The apartment is modern, clean and comfortable with all the modern appliances you would require for a comfortable stay.
Your own private clean and bright room room contains a king size single bed boasting views of the city from where you rest your head. The room also includes your own private bathroom containing a shower. Towels, linen and hair dryer are provided. I do have WIFI !

Interaction with Guests
I live in the apartment and have a full time job so in the evenings I am occasionally out. Weekends I can be anywhere. If I am going out to a movie or a dinner I am happy for you to join me and i will offer you an invitation..
The City of Melbourne is your neighborhood so enjoy it .
I have a Myki available for you. It will have some money on it ready for you to use and I would appreciate it if you could put some money back on it in readiness for the next guest a/ ccording to your own usage.
Simply.... respect of my home and belongings. If you are not home please leave the door slightly open so that I know that I can turn up the music and move around the apartment freely. If your door is closed I will assume that you are resting or sleeping and I will therefore be very quiet.
Mario definitely deserved the Superhost title. He makes me feel like at home and his apartment are well-organised, clean and comfortable (good view spot from his balcony). Perfect location with convenient trams within the vicinity to bring me around Melbourne famous spots. Walking distance to Queen Victoria Market only takes me 2 mins walk. Unfortunately I didn’t have much time to have a nice dinner or a cuppa of coffee during my stay with you. Enjoyed chatting with you in your cosy sofa whilst watching tv programme. He is a friendly, helpful, fun-loving, nice, caring and great sense of humour (overall was an excellent host). I would highly recommend this apartment to those who is travelling alone (but you will definitely won’t feel alone with such awesome host around). I would love to come back and stay with Mario again in my next trip to Melbourne.
The room is comfortable and clean. Thanks for the prompt directions. One suggestion for the direction:after arriving at Southern Cross station, the free hotel transfer service covers the Milano Apartments. I was wondering around for a while trying to get the right bus or tram to your place until getting your further advices.
It was a great pleasure to stay at Mario's! I couldn't imagine anything better. Everything I wanted and needed was pretty much couple mins away, Queen Vic's market is literally two minutes away and it's not long to get to Fitzroy, my beloved suburb. As I had an amazing heater in the room, chilly winter weather didn't bother at all, lots of "Thank you"'s to Mario for that! It was nice to have a chat with Mario in evening, and though both of us were pretty busy all the time, it was good to get to know such a good person anyway.
My first Airbnb experience was embraced by Mario's kindness, hospitality, and fantastic room arrangement. The alocation is perfect for walker, and recommendations of visiting landmarks and premises in MEL from the great host is on VIP level.:)
Mario was very well organised and provided easy access to building via the concierge for me upon arrival. Apartment, room and ensuite was very clean, accommodating and warm.
Mario was kind enough to have the room stocked with local attraction guides, maps and tram routes and gave me a welcome phone call to ensure I had arrived safely.
The location is great and one stop from the free tram routes within the city - very easy to access Melbournes highlights! (and most tour operators know the apartment complex so will accommodate pick up/drop offs).
Mario and I did not have a chance to meet over my 3 night stay due to our conflicting schedules but I will recommend him as a gracious host and will refer others here.
Mario is very nice and friendly.
He is a very good host and makes me feel at home.
His house is very clean and comfortable . I am very happy with the stay.
I will surely be back to stay here again.
