For some people the idea of staying in a hotel creeps them out, purely because they don’t like the feeling of staying in a foreign place that isn’t home. When you are visiting Melbourne for the first time, you don’t have to worry about staying in a hotel if you don’t want to. There are so many different options available for you to choose from when you get there.
You can find guest houses, lodges, motels and hostels and you can even find holiday flats that look and feel exactly like home. Sure it takes getting used to at first, but the fact that you are staying in a regular flat, furnished like a regular home, makes it feel like you are actually at home.
Take a look at all the listings for the places that you want to stay at and you can make your decision from there. Whenever you stay at any boutique Melbourne apartments, you have to remember that you are going to be doing everything yourself. You won’t be able to order room service anymore; instead you’ll have to cook all your own food in your own kitchen, using all the equipment provided by the holiday apartment.
If you are fortunate enough to find a serviced apartment then you can at least have the place cleaned everyday and you can have your laundry taken care of while you are staying there. That comes in handy if you have kids with you. The place tends to get a little messy with the kids running around and doing their thing, and clothing gets dirty really quickly with them, so you have to make sure you have enough clothes or you are able to get the clothing washed by the cleaning service.
Most of the apartments are located in the city centre and are therefore situated close to all the amenities that you need. You can walk a few blocks in any direction and you are guaranteed to find something interesting along the way. You can stop and have a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, or you can head down to the beach, take your shoes off and take a stroll along the sand as the waves lap over your feet.
If you take your partner with you, then the two of you can enjoy the beach at sunset, holding hands and enjoying each other’s company while you walk. You can find anything you like in the city and you are always guaranteed to have a good time.
