Host Review Score

Do you want a change from Melbourne hotels? Yes? Then choose to enjoy a 152 years old Victorian terrace home built in 1866 for a French count. Boutique. Unique. Self contained studios. Homely, cosy. Safe. Private courtyard. Windows that open. Cared for by smiling hosts, eager to share (if you wish) their intimate knowledge of Carlton's unmatched (yet sometimes hidden) culinary delights, fashion flair, edgy street-style. Our fantastic location makes dining easy. Around one corner in Lygon Street, the colorful Italian coffee mecca, are more than 80 cafes and restaurants. Enjoy wine? Cheese? Chocolate? Pate? All just two minutes away. Around another corner, the iconic Royal Exhibition Building. Five minutes stroll to two major universities and three top hospitals. Eight minutes to the humming CBD. Click on one of our studios below to find out more about our Melbourne Accommodation.
Carlton Terrace @ Drummond Street is a quiet neighbourhood of Heritage Terrace Houses. You won't believe how convenient Drummond St Carlton is. It is just on the fringe of the City Skyline. A walking distance to Parliament Station, St Patrick's Cathedral, Carlton Exhibition Gardens and the Melbourne Museum One street away to the West is Lygon Street with many fine shops, restaurants and coffee houses. You can check out the coffee at Brunetti Carlton, an Italian cafe which opens very early in the morning - 6AM and closes at 11pm. It offers coffee and cakes to match the best in Milan or Rome. And if you are an Ice Cream lover, the PIDAPIPO GELATERIA is a MUST TRY!! People queue for their ice cream during winter. DOC in Lygon Street offers an authentic Italian Style, and DOC restaurant on the corner of Drummond and Faraday Streets offers some of the best Pizzas in Melbourne.
