WE had a great time here , my wife and our two kids and I couldnt have been happier . We stayed in three places while on a holiday to Melbourne and looking back this was the best stay.

The apartment was clean and tidy , not overly huge but enough for what we wanted.
But the outstanding feature here was the front desk staff. Two guys who couldnt do enough for you , nothing was a haslle and always so very friendly. They even printed out travel maps for us to get to Mt.Buller without even being asked. My sisters family stayed there as well and they enjoyed it as much as we did.

5 Stars to a wonderful team.

We stayed for a week at the South Yarra Grand and had a great time. Excellent location- 7/11 on the corner of Yarra st and the train station at South Yarra next door to that. Would recommend that you ask about the size of the apartment and the beds as we had our 14 year old son travelling with us and the bed was a pretty tight fit- a very narrow single for a nearly 6ft boy. The living area had a great view of the city but again a bit small. We were glad we did not have our 16 year old as they would not have fitted in the one bedroom- would recommend 3 bedroom in this case. Excellent fitout to the apartment and excellent service at the front desk. I would also recommend asking for an apartment on the other side to the train station as the noise wafts up and if you are a light sleeper this can be annoying.Lovely foyer with a very warm fire. Excellent servicing of the room.

Room Tip: Ask about the size of the beds if you are traveling with tall children; ask for an apartment on the other side of the train station.

Dear SandraJ64

We are sorry that your son wasn't comfortable in a single bed. Given his height it's possible that our comfortable fold out double sofa bed may have suited him better, although if you are looking for a 3 bedroom apartment on your next trip to Melbourne I'm pleased to say that we do offer this room type at Punthill Manhattan - 67 Flinders Lane.

Thanks for your comments about excellent customer service. Your feedback will certainly be passed on to management.

Regards

We were in a one bed apartment and loved everything about our stay. The location is great for the South Yarra area, the property modern and clean and the apartment although not overly big contained everything required for a short or long term stay. The front desk staff were very friendly and approachable and nothing was a problem and requests were dealt with promptly and proffessionaly. We were facing the train station and this was absolutely not an issue for us, in fact we found the apartment very quiet compared to staying in a CBD location where you have city noise such as trams, sirens etc as I have experienced in some other hotels. The apartment was spotless and eveything was in working order and there is a fabulous view from the balcony on city side rooms. Washing machine and dryer are provided plus dishwasher, fridge, oven and stove. The bed was very comfortable, bathroom was supplied with ample quality towels. We thought the updated 3 day weather forecast written in the elevator was a nice touch, as were the lollipops next to the bed and of course the little friend on the balcony...you'll find him. A lot of thought has gone into making sure the guest is at home here and we didn't have any issue here, very refreshing. We will definately stay here on our return visits to Melbourne. I do stay regularly at another good CBD hotel due to a corporate contract but for pleasure this will now continue to be my choice of accommodation. Excellent value.

Note..there are 2 Punthill properties in South Yarra, the other came up when I was searching on Trip Advisor for this one, so ensure you select the correct property. This one on Yarra Street is the newer of the two.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the train station, wasn't a problem.

The hotel is confortable and clean. But I put a poor score because in case of any problem, just forget the Manager ! Irrespect and arrogance. The client feel humiliated ! It happened to me and I do not want to experience that again. Though I travel a lot and stay in hotels all over the world, I've never been treated that sort by the direction of the hotel.

There is many more options with more respectable people in Melbourne !

Traveling for business, I found the studio apartment I stayed in on the top floor extremely satisfactory.
It did face the train tracks but being cold and wet in Melbourne I had no need to open the ranchslider and didn't find the train noise to be bothersome. Nice to have your own wee balcony should you need it though. Great location, popped just up the road to grab a few things from an IGA for an easy dinner prepared in the cute, compact kitchen space - had everything I needed. Great task lighting (bathroom, kitchen for working on laptop) and very comfortable bed with pillows just how I like them. The best quality ironing board and nicest, cleanest iron I have used in a hotel anywhere.

I could hear wind whistling thru the room from the corridor but that easy fixed by putting a towel against the gap at the bottom of the front door. Actually, it would be nice if hotel rooms came with draft-stopper snake things for that very purpose. The heavy doors made quite a thunk (which can disturb, especially early morning/late at night) when you and other guests come and go from the apartments, not something unique to this place though.

Lovely front desk staff, smiling and very helpful. Quick, silent lifts too. Lovely decor, modern but not sterile. I would definitely stay here again.
