Punthill Little Bourke apartments were the perfect accommodation for our large group of 10 ladies, spacious, clean and well maintained. We were made to feel welcomed by all staff members throughout our entire stay. Receptionists were always helpful with suggestions and made our stay extra comfortable. Well located in Chinatown.

This year marks the third year I've stayed at these apartments. Each year we have booked the same room (minus last year when we splurged and got a spa). Each of the years there has always been a different setup in the rooms with various bed types, views and sizes. Pros. The staff are always super helpful. Both the desk...

Dear Jeremy P, Thank you for your review of Punthill Little Bourke. This property is set back from the road, amongst other, taller buildings, and located in the heart of the Chinatown precinct. Noise, to some extent, is an inevitable consequence of being in the city, but hopefully the outstanding location compensates for this. Our phones are attended 24 hours...

Stayed here for 2 days with family. The Apartment was lovely, had everything you would need, and was very very clean.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
