  • Hi does the couch pull out to be a bed ?
    No it doesn't. This apartment has a queen bed only. There is a pull-out, second, double bed under the floor of the bedroom area, but you will need to enquire about this please, if you want to use it.

Company info

I started StayCentral Melbourne Corporate Apartments with one apartment in 2005, and now manage multiple properties in many different locations in inner Melbourne. Like many of my guests, I love to travel. I get to be on the other side of the counter, and take their good ideas back with me. I even worked as a part-time tour guide in Melbourne when I arrived here. I have tried to extend this experience into my accommodation business, where I really love assisting people with their stays. You only need to read some of the 1,000 plus reviews on multiple global accommodation websites to realise how much our guests enjoy our apartments, and the way we look after them. I do love living in Melbourne. It is described as the cultural, business, shopping and sporting capital of the country. The restaurants and cafes are among the best anywhere. I love living in an urban village and jumping on a tram and avoiding the hassles of traffic. It is a city of great opportunity, experiences and lifestyle. I do hope you get to know Melbourne and grow to love it as I have.

Property info

This is an individual apartment located inside a classic, heritage, Melbourne CBD building (called Merigold on Collins) with a security entrance. The gorgeous, old-style, living area windows overlook Collins St below. Perfect for two, your very well refurbished, split-level, Melburnian apartment is amazingly located in the middle of the CBD's cafe, restaurant and shopping district. Although it is strictly a studio apartment, the queen bed is in a separate, split-level area, and there are large block-out blinds that give the bedroom complete privacy and restrict most of the light from coming into the bedroom area. Your swish, boutique apartment includes very modern, high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, towels, and a large kitchen with lots of storage space. Opening windows allow fresh air through the apartment when you want it. This is so well-located near shops, cafes, restaurants and trams; as well as the many attractions that Melbourne has to offer.

Neighborhood info

StayCentral on Collins is in the middle of some of the best shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars in Australia. The tram stops are just 20m away. You can enjoy a walk to some of the best-known sporting venues, markets and arts venues in the country. Everyday shops, services, banks & ATMS and all your everyday needs are catered for nearby. It is only a short walk from Chinatown, and some of the best shopping, theatres, restaurants, cafes and bars in Australia are on your doorstep. Melbourne Central shopping centre, the Bourke Street Mall, Carlton Gardens and Melbourne Museum/IMAX theatre, Crown Casino, the Emporium, Federation Square, and the aquarium are all within easy walking distance.
