Hi there and thanks for dropping in to check out my room. I hope you are not dissapointed.
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 restaraunt 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 not have WIFI :-(( But it is available very near by.
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. If you need to rent a vehicle I have 5 of the major suppliers within 50 metres of the front door.
If its suits you....I have developed a list of Melbourne Must Do's that I can share with you upon arrival to get you started.....If you are into music...hip hop with some alternative mixed in.....Miss Libertines, one of Melbournes premium nite spots is 1 minute away. If you are into Salsa, the Nite Cat is 5 mins away......by the way its a 16 piece live salsa band on a Sunday night only. The best venue in Melbourne on a Sunday. I am currently organising a push bike for safe cheap and easy travels around the city and along the Yarra trails for you to use.... for free of course. If you are planning a visit to The Great Ocean Road I can help you plan your itinerary as I have grown up along that stretch of coast.
In short, this is cheap, clean and simple accommodation, in a top class very central inner city location. You cant go wrong.....especially when I throw in a complimentry Expresso Coffee every morning :-) I can provide half the refridgerator and pantry for your own goodies.
Where possible I am more than happy to take you for a short trip around the city and surrounding suburbs. Just let me know and we can plan ahead.
Too easy..... Safe Travels!
This was my first time using Air B n B and I had a fantastic experience. Mario was a first class host who made me feel very welcome in his home. Thank you Mario. I highly recommend your room - perfect location in the city, lots of great cafés and restaurants within walking distance, convenient for public transport and to top it all off....a clean room, extremely comfortable bed and a lovely ensuite! Mario, it was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for having me as your guest!
Mario is a wonderful host! I really enjoyed my stay there. Everything was great. Love his italian coffee.
I stayed at Mario's for 4 nights and loved every minute of it. The apartment is clean, its a great location, has an amazing view and great facilities within the complex. Mario was away during my stay so unfortunately i didn't get to meet him, however his daughter was super friendly and made me feel very welcome. I would most definitely want to stay there again, superb :-)
Mario's place is fabulous for anybody who likes to stay in the middle of the City. No car needed, everything a short stroll away and the host too happy to show or tell you about where to go and what to see. Thanks Mario!!
Nice and very helpful person.
It was a pleasure to stay in his place!
Mario hosted me for 3 days in his clean and pleasant appartment (great view) ideally located to visit Melbourne. Mario is a nice host to stay with and hang around. Thank you so much for welcoming me and for your presents I keep as a bible... (both of them ;))
Mario was a great host who made it easy for me to enjoy and learn about Melbourne with easy access to transport. The accommodation is very nice with a relaxing feel. I'm sure everyone would enjoy the stay in Melbourne with Mario.
I stayed for 4 days at Mario's place and I had an amazing time. He is a very good host. Even though he was not at the apartment that weekend he kept texting me checking if everything was alright. His apartment is very modern, comfy and in a very handy location. From there you can walk or get a tram to most of the tourist spots. I loved Melbourne and I would definitely stay at Mario's again.
Mario was a great host. The room is clean and the bed is really comfortable. The location is perfect - very central but also quiet.
I stayed 4 nights in Mario's apartment. I only saw Mario once as I was out sighseeing most of the time. I found Mario very friendly and welcoming and he took time to show me the gym and pool. The apartment is nicely decorated and the location is great. The room was larger then I had expected and it was lovely to have an ensuite. All in all my experience at Mario's was great. I would certainly recommend Mario's apartment to anyone looking for a central apartment in Melbourne!
