The washer and dryer are neatly hidden in the laundry area along the entrance hall. Laundry liquid is also supplied. Even though the apartment is located in a busy neighbourhood, the double-glazed windows effectively block out city noise, which will allow for peaceful, uninterrupted sleep at night.

Southbank houses the Melbourne Arts Precinct which include the National Gallery of Victoria, Malthouse Theatre, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, and Hamer Hall, among all other venues where regular art shows and exhibitions are staged. They are all within just 10-20 minutes away by walking. Clarendon St is only a few minutes away where some of the local restaurants are situated. Crown Complex is right next door where various entertainment hotspots, bars, fine dining restaurants, fastfood shops, and clothing and fashion retail stores are found. For nature lovers, the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens is only 25 minutes away by walking. Being in there surrounded by various flora will definitely provide a quick and serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The tram route 12, which goes directly to Melbourne CBD, is only 2 minutes away by walking. However, even just walking straight to the CBD will only take 15 minutes. The same tram line passes by Southern Cross Station where the Skybus to the airport is available. It is only five stops away. Moreover, the tram that goes to MCG or Rod Laver Arena is only three stops away. The Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is right next to the building. While the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is only 10 minutes away by walking. Trams within the Melbourne CBD are free. But, to take advantage of the experiences the most livable city has to offer, walking is the most advisable form of transportation. If you want to check in earlier, please message us first so that we can discuss what we can do to make it possible. There is no available car space within the building itself, but there are a lot of paid, secure parking within the area. The nearest one, the Crown Multilevel Parking, is just right next to the building. The bathroom essentials provided (toilet tissue, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash) will only be enough to cover at least the first five nights for three guests.

CBD cosy room-verified female guest
$ 48 AUD Per night
This brand new gorgeous cosy studio apartment sits in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. Transport, shops, theatres and our local cafe culture are all at your doorstep and you can walk over to Southbank and down the river, everything is convenient.
Our studio apartment is simply stunning. It is very inviting, intimate, cosy and comfortable. It is small, but it has everything you need at your fingertips: the fluffy pillows, the comfy bed, storage, big TV, fireplace, complete kitchen and bright bathroom. You will love this brand new space. We laid beautiful timber lam flooring, installed designer stone bench tops, quality cooking appliances, double drawer dishwasher, wine glass cabinet, an amazing fire place, large flat-screen TV and a gorgeous queen size bed with large under-bed drawers for you to use as storage. We've also installed a convenient closet/robe space at the end of the kitchen where you can hang your suits, shirts or dresses and jackets, tuck away your shoes, and sit your other personal belongings out of the way for use when required. We chose a beautiful white marble stone for the bench tops (there is a space saving stone bench top you can pull out from above the fridge) and a mirrored splash back to reflex light and space into the studio. We have also ensured there are power points and USB points so you can charge your phones, tablets, laptops, etc - located on both sides of the bed. The entire studio apartment is available for you to use. Although, you will find we have a locked mirrored cupboard in the bathroom, this cupboard holds all of our cleaning products so we can make it nice and clean for you to use. And there is one locked drawer under the bed in the corner, this drawer holds essential items, also for cleaning, like the vacuum for the floor. ;) We will be available to communicate with you during your entire stay - if you need our assistance, and on many occasions you will have us greet you on your arrival. If we are unable to meet and greet you in person we will provide fantastic instructions on locating the door keys, and will be right beside you on the phone if you need us, to ensure you have the perfect arrival, stay and easy departure.
Flinders Street - Is home of our architecturally renowned Flinders Train Station and Federation Square. Both are visited and used by thousands of people every day, so expect the streets to be busy all the time. You are in the heart of our transport hub and cafe central, so you don't have to walk far to find what you need. Shopping - Well, where do I start! If you're after food to eat or cook we have Woolworths (supermarket) located right beside our building (turn left as you exit), and Coles (another supermarket) right around the corner in Elizabeth St (turn right as you exit, and then right into Elizabeth St). Then there are lots of cute little cafes dotted along Flinders Street, and around the corner in Elizabeth St, or walk up to Swanston St and you will be flooded with busy cafes and all the takeaway giants, like Mc Donalds, KFC, Hungry Jacks (Burger King) etc - you will never go hungry when staying at our place! :D Degraves Street - When exiting our building, turn left from our front door to enter this atmosphere laden lane featuring bars, shops, cafes, and restaurants. It is also home to many fantastic pieces of street art and graffiti, and is a popular place for tourists and locals to mingle during the day or at night. Right across the road is the entrance to the Flinders Street Train Station. There you can buy your MYKI card (a commuter card required to access all public transport, but all trams are FREE in the CBD! You don't need a MYKI to travel in the CBD!). If leaving the CBD you will need 1 MYKI card each, and you can 'top up' your card right beside the train station entrance. There are also trams that run on Flinders Street, Swanston Street and Elizabeth Street, and the trams that run on these lines can take you to just about anywhere in Melbourne (or connect you up to other areas around our beautiful city. There are also buses that run along Flinders Street. Simply visit the local journey planner / timetable website to find a service and time/day that suits you to travel. Or, if you go inside Flinders Street Station you can visit the Transport booth where they can help you get to where you want to go. We spent many hours deliberating over how we were going to make our studio apartment feel spacious, user friendly, space saving, cosy and relaxing. And I think we hit the nail on the head! :D Most of the time you will be out enjoying the city life, and returning to our place to unwind, ready for the next day to see and do more. :D
