“Fantastic family base for inner-north & CBD Melbourne”

people found this review helpful

Our family (2 Adults & a toddler) spent six days at the Fitzgeorge Apartment, Fitzroy, Melbourne in May 2013. This is a summary of our two bedroom, two floor apartment & general Melbourne tips:

OVERALL:
• Fantastic family base for inner-north & CBD Melbourne that we would recommend

POSITIVE:
• Well located, clean & modern two storey townhouse located down an authentic Melbourne alley
• Very close to Gertrude, Smith & Brunswick streets – shops, bars, cafes etc
• Two good size bedrooms upstairs with additional blankets & pillows available
• Block-out blinds on the bed room windows
• Bathroom (Shower only) upstairs with an additional toilet & hand basin downstairs
• Pot-a-cot provided & loving made up by host Katrina (extra blankets for padding & warmth)
• Very prompt & polite email communication when booking – we met Katrina by chance on arrival. She was warm & helpful.
• Coffee table & Lonely Planet books on Melbourne in apartment
• Modern TV, DVD Player with USB port & iPod docking CD player
• Comfortable furniture with a Danish edge – the lounge was fantastic
• Full kitchen – pots, pans, cutlery – it was like having your own kitchen while away
• Pantry was stocked with basics & Bread & Milk were provided on arrival – really nice touch
• Washing Machine & Dryer available as well as clothes line in courtyard – massive box of washing powder next to the machine
• Downstairs air conditioner worked well
• Room for one medium size car in garage
• Close to many Tram routes

NEGATIVE:
• Two stories (large staircase) may not be good for some travelers

GENERAL TIPS:
• 10 minutes walk to Woolworths (Smith Street)
• 15 minute walk to Coles (Johnson Street)
• 2 minute walk to Foodworks Deli (Buy & recharge MYKI Tram cards here) – small bottle shop attached
• 15 minutes walk to the CBD
• Endota Day Spa on Johnson Street very good for a treat
• Clean, modern playground three blocks CNR George & Connell streets
• Great coffee & snacks at Arcadia & Alimentari
• Great beers at Josie Bones & Gertrude Hotel – both minutes walking away
• AMAZING food at Cutler & Co. Book ahead!
