                                                              Spacious apartment in a very good location in Melbourne Chinatown. Ken was kind enough to allow us to check in early. Good value for money for such an apartment in Chinatown. Plenty of chinese and asian food around the area and supermarket is within 5mins walking distance. Only drawback is the limited television channels Melbourne has. I will come back here to stay again!

No dryer, but everything else was really great five stars.

                                                              An excellent, clean and modern apartment. Greater range of glasses and general kitchen equipment. The advantage of the balcony was negated by strong cooking smells from the breakfast bar below. Excellent Italian restaurant downstairs. Communication from the host was excellent
