The SpaceYou're located in the very heart of Melbourne, so the finest restaurants, museums and theaters are all only a few minutes walk away.
The studio is self contained and all my guests feel right at home as soon as they close the door.
Wireless Internet is included free of charge.
This modest sized Studio is located on the 11th floor of the Lonsdale Heights Apartment building, which occupies the same space as the Hotel Grand Chancellor which was built in 1970.
It's fully furnished with bedding and furniture. Includes 42" LCD TV/Bluray which has USB/HDMI inputs.
Separate Bathroom also includes washer/dryer/toilet/shower and sink.
Kitchenette includes Hot Plate, Microwave, Toaster and full size Fridge. It's not a large kitchen, just a bench on which to do basic cooking.

Located in the heart of Melbourne with virtually everything at your fingertips.

Countless restaurants are within a 5 minute walking distance, as are numerous Theatres and Cinemas.
All forms of public transport are within a 1 minute walk from the Studio and the SkyBus (which takes you directly to/from the Airport) stops right in front.
Just down Lonsdale Street (if you turn left and walk down a hundred metres) you'll find the QV Building which contains BIG W, Woolworths and Harvey Norman (for all your food/clothing/electronics items), as well as 120 other shops. It's basically a shopping mall in a building. You will find everything you need there, food, clothing, technology etc.

Plenty of spare sheets and towels.
There's also a 42" LED TV with 2 Bluray players as well as USB/HDMI inputs.
There is car parking available inside the building, but it's quite expensive, so I'd suggest parking at JM Car Park across the road at the church. It's $8 per evening and $15 during the day. You can leave your car there for days at a time, so just tell them what you need and they will price accordingly.
There's storage space for you bicycle/bike on the 1st level of the CarPark in the building.

The best markets in Melbourne:
The most famous market in Melbourne is indisputably the Queen Victoria Market (known affectionately by locals as Queen Vic or Vic Market), located in the heart of inner-city Melbourne. This historic and labyrinthine landmark is open five days a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday–Sunday) and caters for everyone from tourist to foodie alike.
South Melbourne Market has the honour of being the oldest market in Melbourne to have operated continuously since its inception in 1867. With over 150 stalls ranging from fresh produce to fashion and more, South Melbourne Market also plays host to a range of both upcoming and established designers in SO:ME Space, with a rotating roster of pop-up stalls dedicated to design.
For the art-and-design lover, the Rose St. Artists’ Market nestled in hip Fitzroy is the place to see and be seen at on the weekend. If you get hungry – or thirsty – you can head up to the rooftop for delicious dining and craft beers at Young Bloods Diner.
In the warmer months, fashionistas can get their fix at the Rag Trade & Recycle Market in Collingwood, an area famous for fashion and textiles. This market offers a forum for new and upcoming fashion designers, as well as a way to recycle vintage and second-hand clothing.
Bibliophiles will find their idea of heaven in the unlikely surrounds of Federation Square, the largest weekly Saturday book market in Melbourne. Home to some of the most experienced book dealers around, this market offers thousands of new and second-hand titles and also plays host to authors and illustrators looking to ply their trade.
Melbourne is also home to Australia’s oldest continuously operating growers market, located in Prahran. Established in 1864, Prahran Market is mecca for Melbourne foodies and offers heirloom produce, cheeses, smallgoods, artisan products, certified organic fruits and veggies, as well as fresh meats – including game.
This list is just the start of the many amazing and unique markets in Melbourne. Happy shopping! Getting AroundAll forms of public transport at your fingertips. Trains, trams, buses and taxis. You're in the heart of the city!
