Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment facing toward the city for 9 days.

No opportunity for early check-in, although a good sign the hotel is busy.. personally is a little frustrating as most international flights arrive in Australia early in the morning and the first thing you want to do after 24 hours of flying is take a shower.

The building, lobby and room were all modern and clean. The room although a bit on the small side, really has everything you need and was quite comfortable for 2 people. Shower water pressure and temperature was good. Bed was quite comfortable. Washing machine & drier are great to have on longer trips though are front loaded and so can be fairly noisy when in use (i.e. don't put them on just as you're about to go to bed).

Use your room key card to get into the car parking. Cost is $12 per day. Lots of spaces, though a little tight if your rental company decides to upgrade you to a larger SUV/4x4. Turning on to Yarra St from Toorak Rd during peak hour can be near on impossible (especially as the pedestrians are rushing across to make their trains). Better to come of Alexandra ave.

As mentioned in other reviews, a train station is across the road but you can't hear it. Quite convenient for quick trips into the city center. Also the trams leave from the same location if you want a more scenic/slower paced trip into the city center. If you walk to the end of Yarra St and turn left, you can also walk/run/ride along the river into the city center if that's your thing.

That said everything you could possibly need is within the South Yarra area around the hotel. Within a couple of minutes there is a 7/11, a couple of IGA supermarkets, quite a few cafes, many restaurants of every food type. Walk about 10 minutes and you can find larger Woolworths and Coles supermarkets, shops of pretty much any kind, cinemas (Jam Factory).

Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Great apartment very well equipped for short stay if self catering is desired. Great position near to South Yarra metro and the tram stops. Take the number 8 to go to the city.
Nice big comfortable bed and great terrace with sun beds.

Room Tip: The 1 bed apartment was great but if the studious are of similar quality they should be fine. Some rooms appear to look over the railway so rooms facing in other direction may be better. Arriving at Southern Cross station take the metro to South Yarra station. Easy.

Yes the bedrooms are small, as is the bathroom, but we found the living areas great and had a good balcony. The location was great, 2 min walk to great shopping, restaurants, markets and public transport. The decor is nice, had a great kitchenette and even a washer/ dryer ( not that we were doing any washing) For us we found that just being able to walk out the door, and shop and eat and then return for a glass of wine on the balcony before going out again, made our weekend !

Hi KylieOberon

Thanks for taking the time to write a reveiw of Punthill South Yarra Grand.

We love our location just off Toorak Rd and there is no doubt it provides the perfect base for a friends weekend away. Toorak Road has so many great restaurants and Chapel Street provides a world class shopping experience. We are pleased to say that all our rooms have balconies which adds to the openess of the living area.

Hope to see you again soon.

Regards

Keiran Spencer
Director of Sales and Marketing.

We stayed here for four nights ove a weekend, two adults and two teenagers. The location was great, as was the reception area. The lounge area of the apartment was good and the kitchen well equipped, all brand new with modern fittings. As for the beddroms and bathrooms, you wouldn't even get a cat inside the rooms in this place, let alone swing it.The main bedroom was the size of the queen bed, with hardly any walking room around the bed. No room for suitcases except rammed into the tiny wardrobe, which had not enough room for one adult, let alone two. The bathroom, also tiny had good hot water, but no shelf space, no hooks and nowhere to hang wet towels to dry (as requested by hotel, so they don't have to change towels daily). The second bedroom with two of the mosgt narrow single beds I have ever seen, couldn't roll over in case you rolled out) was even smaller if possible, with no room for two teens and their bags. The 2nd bathroom was smaller than a pantry, where if you had a shower the whole area would flood. Overall disappointing for the $$$. Couldn't fault the location though.

We had a pleasant stay in south yarra, which is in an excellent location-close to many shops and restaurants. It is also right next to the train station, however noise was not an issue and did not disturb our sleep.

The rooms are very 'sexy', black and white decor which was a nice change from the usual bland and boring hotel rooms. Our studio had a full kitchenet, including oven, grill and stove. There was also a drier/ washing machine and large balcony, a clever use of space.

Bathrooms could use some additional toilettries and bench space, but there was an iron and ironing board in the room which most hotels don't offer.

We paid $140\night, which was fantastic value for the modern hotel in a superb location.

Hi Jewelz88

Thanks for the review and excellent endorsement for Punthill South Yarra Grand. It sounds like you were fortunate enough to book the property and on one of our great promotional rates.

The stylish in room decor is true reflection on the surrounding area. I hope you were able to make the most of the great dining and boutique shopping outlets on Toorak Rd.

Next time you are staying at Punthill South Yarra Grand you should try and check out Grove and Vine Providore which has opened just next door to us. G&V specialise in a great selection of local wine and gourmet produce. Perfect to take back to your room and enjoy.

Regards

Keiran Spencer
