Like most major cities, Melbourne has many parks, great shopping and plenty of cultural attractions. The Immigration Museum gives an informative display of the personal and moving stories of the early immigrants. The historic Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens also have a unique place in Australia’s early history and it is well worth taking a guided tour. Cricket fans can watch a match at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds where Aussie Rules Football is also played. Those staying in holiday rentals in Melbourne will be able to take advantage of the renowned restaurants and cafés from Chinatown to trendy St Kilda Beach.

Good points - great location close to shops, transport, cafes and restaurants; really clean; on site

4 of 5
Good points - great location close to shops, transport, cafes and restaurants; really clean; on site 24 hour convenience store with ATM. Not so good points - noisy construction work from 7 am Mon to Sat; uncomfortable lounge to watch TV; poor quality bed linen (quilt incorporates the sheet). Overall - an enjoyable stay and good value for money.

Good location except for the shower the temperature from warm turned to hot suddenly. Need to keep

5 of 5
Good location except for the shower the temperature from warm turned to hot suddenly. Need to keep adjusting the temperature. ( very difficult to get the right temperature) It will be good if the check in time can move forward a little instead of at 4.00pm especially reaching Melbourne in the early morning and also we need to deposit our luggage and wash up before the start of our other activities. I will definitely recommend friends to put up at Daniel's place. If I do have the chance to visit Melbourne, I will book the same place again.
