  1. Hello, I simply love your website, all the penthouses look absolutely amazing. For Melbourne, I would choose the first one – on the Southbank as it looks stunning! I really would like to have a flat one time, which looks this way (or similar way as I am modest..:). It is also very close to all important places so there is not much to decide.

    Thank you for your great post and I wish you all the best!

    Bye Renata

  2. I do like travelling and Australia is one of my dream countries. I will travel to Australia someday. Thank you for your reviews of these amazing hotels in Melbourne, Australia. These are really amazing and cosy places to stay during a vacation with so many amenities. When I will have enough money to travel to Australia, I will definitely consider one of these places. Thanks again for the review. 

  3. I really liked Sub Penthouse and it is good that it offers free wifi as I have an online business and need to be online all the time. It takes so much time and I searched the bar near it and it looks also cool however I wonder does near places offer gluten free foods?

  4. I love all of the options you have for hotels. Australia is such a beautiful place, and you have showcased so many of the great benefits to it. I can’t wait to find out what other locations you will have next and what offers you show for these locations. Austrailia looks like an awesome place to visit and even live.

  5. I use to have a business partner in Adelaide Australia and he would send me pictures all the time of places like Sydney and Melbourne as well as his stunning home town. I want to visit all 3 in style in my lifetime and I love that first listing in your post 33 City Road, Southbank. I love the infinity pool out the balcony and the angular
    dining to the living area in the corner. I could work and play here all day long.

  6. What a great place to travel to (except for the terrifying wildlife)! I’m saving this article so that when I go traveling next summer I can consider where to stay in Australia. 

    Such wonderful views! The view from the Mona Lisa Milano penthouse is particularly fun to stare out at, I imagine.

    So, yes, I would choose the Mona Lisa for my imaginary vacation. Unfortunately, I doubt I’ll have the funds – but thank you for letting me know of these penthouses, anyway!

    1. Brady thank you for the comments and for saving the post. Which wildlife? Lol. Mona Lisa is a great choice and please stay tuned for pricing because it may be more affordable than you think.

  7. This is an lovely pictures of penthouse I so much admire.  Melbourne is an amazing place to explore when looking for tourism and research in Australia. My project supervisor in school happened to do his PhD project research in the university hospital around Melbourne. I can still remember he lodge at Flinders Luxury Penthouse together with his teammates. Every gist he told us about this penthouse was close to what I met here. I wish to visit Australia very soon for thesame research but I don’t know the exact location yet. This review would be of help  to provide guidelines when am ready to book for my journey. 

    1. Thank you for the comments Stella! Very glad that you enjoyed the pictures and thank you for sharing this story about Flinders. It’s truly a top-notch penthouse rental option.

  8. That’s a very nice good selection of penthouses on your website. I hope one day when I’m in Australia I can stay in one of them. Melbourne seems one of the most interesting cities of Australia.

    When would be the best time to come to Melbourne? I mean, where it isn’t too hot, not too cold. I heard that sometimes can get a little chilly in Australia, but not sure if in Melbourne too.

    1. Hi Sandy. Average highs peak at around 80 degrees Fahrenheit between January and February, while average lows bottom out at around the mid-40s in July. Keep in mind that Melbourne, being in the southern hemisphere, has opposite summer and winter times than with the northern hemisphere. Thank you for the comments and happy travels!

  9. There are three things I usually consider when traveling. As I usually travel alone, I would have to rule out anything with three bedrooms. Usually, I would look for one-bedroom. In this case, I would have to opt for a 2-bedroom which narrows it down to four choices. I also like to have a view and of the four, it would be either StayCentral or Mona Lisa. Most of all, I prefer to always stay where there is a fully equipped kitchen. Finders has an amazing view, but no fully-equipped kitchen is mentioned. I would let the price determine if I would choose StayCentral or Mona Lisa.

  10. Hi, There.
    I think you have chosen the best penthouses in Melbourne, Australia.
    Your review on the is excellent with a stunning view of the luxury they offer.
    Essendon Sub Penthouse at 1050, Mount Alexander Road seems just like Titanic. I would love to have a pic with my wife someday on its dock.
    Thanks for the awesome review.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur

  11. Wow!! 

    This is amazing. You have shown amazing pictures of different hotel in melbourn. Austrlia itself is a very beautiful place. Travelling there is like a dream. Interior of the William Street Penthouse is so nice. Also the Mona Lisa Milano Penthouse. But the outer view of the StayCentral Brunswick Penthouse is great. So I liked it most. It’s view just blown my mind. places are also nearby the hotel. How much the hotels cost per person and per day??

  12. Very nice website, I like the way you are writing and I would choose the 8 franklin street. I am looking forward to your next written articles. Anyway, all of the pictures are great, the hotels are looking a little bit expensive but with really nice views, I like it, so stay tuned and Keep it up :). 

  13. My wife and I have been discussing our next big vacation and we narrowed it down to Italy and Australia. Thanks for this review of the best accommodations that Melbourne has to offer. It was very helpful in comparing prices and determining what our options are. I am definitely bookmarking this article and will refer back to it if we ultimately decide to go to Australia. Thanks again!

  14. Australia is on my bucket list. Have not been yet but Melbourne looks to be a great destination! I can’t believe how inexpensive it is per person. Exclusive Stays Penthouse really intriguied me not just for the great amenities but also great places to visit that are walkable. Thanks for such an informative article. All the best!


  15. Wow this is cool. I would really like to go to Australia because I like Australian accents! It would be so fun to be surrounded by people with Australian accents all the time. I can see why they say it is so livable. It sounds like a very nice place. It looks like a lot of them have fitness centers so I will have to inquire more into what type of gym equipment is in there. My favorite was probably 35 Union Street except I would never sit in that chair LOL! As always I really enjoy reading through your website and it inspires me to travel.
