Where to Stay in Melbourne: For Family and Friends

Where to stay in Melbourne? This is probably the first question that comes to your mind after booking your flight ticket. I just got back from Melbourne and I’m so excited to share the place we stayed throughout our entire trip (I swear it is AMAZING). The place which I stayed would be ideal if you’re traveling with your family or friends.

Playhouse Service Apartments is situated at Abbotsford, a strategic location for travelers. First, it’s near the CBD (approximately 3.5km), and it only takes you around 35 minutes if you’re traveling by tram. There are loads of trams down Victoria Street, so you could easily catch the tram. And you could easily top up your MyKi card balance in the cigarettes or convenience stores along the street. Second, it’s a Vietnamese town, and you could find delicious multi-national cuisines ranging from Thai to Italian. And not to mention, fantastic cafes and bars all within walking distance. If you prefer to cook, there’re Aldi, Woolworths, and Coles. Furthermore, you could also walk along the Yarra River which is just beside the apartment.

The apartment we lived at is a 2 Bedroom Executive Apartment. The room consists of spacious living room with a couch, table, and 50″ LCD TV. The highlight of the living room is the floor to ceiling glass that enables you to catch the gorgeous sight of Yarra river and parkland views. P.S you can even spot some hot air balloons in the early morning!

Each bedroom consists of a queen size bed. And the room I lived has a wide glass window, which is definitely my favourite part. I just love to unwind my day by lying down at the bed and look out from the window.
