Perfect for two, your very modern studio apartment is amazingly located in the middle of the CBD's cafe, restaurant and shopping district. It is inside a classic, heritage, Melbourne CBD building called Merigold on Collins with a security entrance. Although is strictly a studio apartment, there are large block-out blinds that give the bedroom complete privacy and restrict most of the light from coming into the bedroom area. The living area windows overlook Collins St below. Your swish Melbourne boutique, serviced apartment includes very modern, high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, towels, and large kitchen with lots of storage space.
Opening windows allow fresh air through all rooms when you want it. This is only one of many beautiful, boutique, inner-Melbourne apartments that are so well-located near shops, cafes, restaurants and trams; as well as the many attractions that Melbourne has to offer.
Car parking is available nearby for a small fee - monthly rates are as little as about $11/day.
