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.
I could not speak highly enough of my first Airbnb experience with Mario - he is truly an amazing host, extremely kind and generous - he accommodated for a very late arrival (after midnight, as my flight was late) and made me feel so welcome that his apartment instantly felt like a home away from home! The apartment was just perfect - clean, tidy, and in the ideal location - with a great view from the balcony. Cannot thank Mario enough for his hospitality, will definitely come back!
Mario is an amazing host. Always nice, kind and helpfull. It was the first airbnb experience for me and i must say that was asbsolutely positive. I would suggest every single in melbourne to go to mario's.
Mario was a great host and I really enjoyed my stay. The building and apartment were fantastic, you can't beat the location and the room was super clean with your own private bathroom and shower. Thanks Mario
Mario was a great host who's sincere hospitality has really shown how he deserved the many good reviews and this is one more of them. On my first day, he patiently waited for my arrival and even took me around the area to let me be more familiar with the important spots around. Also, his house is extremely neat with many good amenities at your disposal. His room was extremely comfortable and it looks exactly like how it's shown in his profile. During my stay, he was very accomodating and never inconvenienced me at all. It is I who had to borrow the occasional phone since I did not have an Australian number and he would always provide his service as a host generously.
Mario is a great host. He took time to explain me what to do in Melbourne, where to go to see beautiful landscapes of the city... The appartment is nice, the guest room with private bathroom is perfect.
A very good experience! Thanks again Mario!
Mario's place is right in the centre of Melbourne so you can walk everywhere or just jump on a tram when you walk out the front door. Mario left the keys at reception for my arrival and ensured that I was OK.
Great location in downtown Melbourne! Easy walking access to cbd and bike share on the corner. Mario is a wonderful host. The room is great: comfy bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, quiet, private, clean. Building has a pool, sauna, spa, and gym!! Thanks for taking me out for breakfast Mario!!

Hi there, I consider myself an expert on all matters Melbourne. I was born in Melbourne and know many of its so called "secret spots".
I work in the executive management field,. I speak Italian and I love meeting people from different parts of the world.I love cooking,working hard at keeping fit and most importantly having a good laugh !
If you know nothing about Melbourne I am more than capable of personally helping you with tours and travels in and around Melbourne. I regularly get down to the west coast along the Great Ocean Road and would be happy to take along for the ride.
