Review: Airbnb (Melbourne City)
Price? ~S$115/A$99 per night
Accommodation Type: Airbnb Room, Ensuite Toilet (airbnb.com.sg/rooms/990963)
When? 4 nights in October 2013
Our experience? We missed our flight to reach Melbourne at night, so we caught another midnight flight and reached the place very early in the morning. And even though, we had to trouble Wendy (the host) to wake up in the wee hours to let us in, she was still cordial.
Since food in Australia can be quite expensive for us, it’s great that she has a kitchen for us to whip up some dishes. Wendy is usually at work in the day and back in the evening for dinner, so we had to share the kitchen with her. But our cooking timings didn’t clash, so we technically had the kitchen to ourselves!
Also, we were halfway through our Australia adventure when we lodged in Melbourne City, so it’s good that she has a washer, iron and ironing board for us to do our laundry. :)
What say us?
✔ Great location! It’s a great location to explore Melbourne central. Convenient.
✔ Apartment with facilities: The apartment has a gym and swimming pool available for use. But the swimming pool was a bit small, dark and murky for me to swim in. So decided to give it a pass. :(
✔ Awesome apartment: Quiet, tidy and clean. Equipped with European washer/dryer, and iron and ironing board – free to use.
✔ Strong wifi signal
✔ Well-equipped kitchen: Thumbs up for kitchen with stocked condiments, making it easier for us to cook.
✔ Good communication: We didn’t manage to meet Gloria who liaised with us, but the communication with Gloria and Wendy was prompt and good.
✘ Bed: The mattress was a bit too soft/sunken. But they might have change a mattress since then!
Recommended? Highly recommended! Overall a good experience! :)
