Walking distance to anything in the CBD, close to gardens and quiet as well. Well presented room, clean and light. Large bathroom with adequate kitchenette to enable small meals to be prepared. TV was in odd location however on a table at the furtherest point from the couch.

Excellent value for money. Room came with kitchenette with all the necessary cooking appliances. Bed was comfy and the only issue was the small sized pillows. Location in Chinatown is perfect for dining out and shopping in the middle of the city.

The Punthill Little Bourke has the advantage of being right in the heart of things being in Chinatown. This means theaters, shopping and other attractions are mere steps away as well as being close to several tram lines. That said, considering the price paid for a studio accommodation the property is not your best value given the choices for serviced...

Came here with a family member and kept hearing how friendly the reception was. Checked in around 4pm on Monday 10 October and had a young guy check us in (can't remember his name) and he had absolutely no personality, was just very methodical and not a really good first impression. After that we checked in to room 506/507 and...

Tucked in a side street on Little Bourke, this hotel was quiet at night maybe because we were up on the fifth floor. We booked a room for 3 people. The queen size bed had two doors that work as a partition for privacy from the rest of the room. The 2nd bed is a pull out sofa. It wasn't...

Punthill on little Bourke Street never disappoints ! Rooms are always spot on clean, reception service is always super friendly . The location is great, easy walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Nothing was to much trouble when our flight got cancelled last minute and us, a group of 6 ladies had to stay another night. Thanks again...

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.
