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 !
A shuttle bus (Skybus) operates from Tullamarine Airport that will drop you right outside the front door for $16. It will also pick you up outside the front door to to return you to the Airport.
If you are doing day tours to the Great Ocean Road, Phillp Island and other regional locations, buses will pick you up and drop you off outside the front door also.

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.
This apartment is in a perfect location for the City and Mario is a great host making sure that your stay is just as you want it to be. My stay was really comfortable with every detail covered to make it just so. Thanks for a great stay.
Despite the fact that my booking with Mario was a last minute one, he still made my stay as good as it could ever get. Location was fantastic. Room was very comfortable. Getting to know Mario was also a pleasure and he was nice enough to bring my anti-social bum out for drinks and to the nearby market to meet his friends. If you're lucky he might even share his super luxurious face cream with you, which may or may not be a little awkward, but all you have to do is smile and follow his instructions and you will be fine. Mario was also a caring host and made efforts to check up on my well-being whenever possible. Truly a memorable stay, this one.
Mario's apartment is spot on... great location, free trams within the inner city just a few steps away. The apartment was exactly as stated. Mario's hospitality is awesome Loved the spa and Pool. This apartment is perfect for the single traveller. Thanks Mario for making my stay in Melbourne a relaxing time.
Location was excellent as it was only a 1 min walk to the tram stops. Mario was super! He showed me the Queen Vic market and was great company to have coffee with! Clean and modern apartment and he even had the hotel style shower caps which was handy! Best Air BNB in Melbourne! Mario went the extra mile as he had all the city books and maps in the room and the wifi password was there before I even had to ask, what a great host. Very much enjoyed my weekend stay in Melbourne CBD. Best nights sleep as it was quiet, a comfy bed with dark blinds which made the room dark.
찾기 쉬운 위치에 있어서 너무 좋았습니다.
집도 깨끗하고 조용하였으며, 특히 Mario의 배려로 너무나도 완벽한 여행을 할 수 있었습니다.
세심하게 챙겨주고 메세지를 통해 소통도 잘 해주고, 제가 추울까봐 친절하게 옷도 빌려주었습니다. 너무 고마웠습니다.
최고의 호스트였습니다. 감사합니다.
After a not so nice experience in Sydney I was more than happy to enjoy the clean and cosy room/bathroom in Mario's apartment! Everything was perfect and even so Mario was not in town he organised everything perfectly and answered all my questions:) I really enjoyed the stay and the great views from the balcony! The location is quite convenient and within walking distance (20 minutes) to the river and thanks to the Myki card provided by Mario it was no problem to use the tram/bus (I went to Kilda beach:). Should I ever visit Melbourne again I would definitely stay at Mario's.
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!

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.
