Response from Chris:
I knew you were very happy with the cool little apartment when you extended your booking quite a bit, but I'm pleased that you really loved both the apartment as well as the location. It is brilliant isn't it? The owner went to a lot of trouble to furnish CBD Little Paris exquisitely. We do try to make things as easy as possible for our guests; especially after long flights. I look forward to assisting you again. Chris

The apartment is in a very convenient location, walking distance to everything you need. It was well presented and clean on arrival. Chris was also very helpful in accommodating an early check-in.

The apartment is a fabulous location and it is obvious that a lot of care and consideration has gone into creating a delightful and tasteful environment. My friends were staying in an apartment in Collins Street and were very jealous of the level of comfort in my choice.
Chris User Profile
Response from Chris:
Collins St. Bah! It just doesn't compare with the Flinders Lane environment does it? Especially with a gorgeous place like CBD Little Paris. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. Your private feedback "The bedding is luxurious and very comfortable. I believe the hosts have thought of everything to ensure their guests' comfort" is appreciated and noted here as our future guests need to see this. We do have 16 other apartments in various locations around inner Melbourne though, if you would like to have some variety when you return. Cheers, Chris

The apartment is centrally located with restaurants, designer shopping, the arts precinct, alleyways and transport in the immediate vicinity. The decor is very tasteful and of a high quality and the bedding is comfortable and generous. Checking in was very easy and there were no issues with communication. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment for a very enjoyable short stay.

Chris User Profile

A mining engineer by profession, I have owned other businesses since 1998. I started this business with one apartment in 2005, and now manage multiple properties.

I love to travel; both overseas on epic journeys (including remote locations like the Mulu Caves in Borneo, ancient Nepalese cities, Antarctica & Alaska, ancient underground Turkish cities, Torres del Paine and colourful markets in the mountains between Vietnam and China), but also on short domestic trips for weekends and weeks away just to relax. It means I get to be on the other side of the counter, and experience how other people look after their guests, and I take the good ideas back with me. I always look after my hosts' places and provide feedback for the owners and managers.

I even worked as a part-time tourist guide for a few years, and really enjoyed the interactions with the tourists off the huge cruise liners that appear each spring and summer. I have tried to extend this experience into my accommodation business here at home, where I really love assisting people with their stays. You only need to read the 400 or so reviews on Airbnb, Flip key, Trip advisor, Goo gle, and on my own StayCentral website to realise how much our guests enjoy our apartments, and the way we look after them.

I like keeping fit with gym work and roller-blading with my partner; often blading 30 kms or so on a day out.

I cook for my mates once a month, and have done so for many years now. I cook and they bring the wine; my other love since coming to Melbourne in 2003.

I love living in Melbourne. It enjoys a unique place in Australia. It is often described as the cultural, business, shopping and sporting capital of the country. It is a city of great opportunity, experiences, events and lifestyle that can be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike; and I really enjoy facilitating our guests' stays here.

Finally, the restaurants and cafes in Melbourne are some of the best in the world. I love living in an urban village amongst these, and all the other everyday shops.

StayCentral Melbourne Serviced Apartments is a unique group of serviced apartments in central Melbourne. We offer boutique short and long-stay accommodation for relocations, family holidays and getaways. Our comfortable apartments have also been enjoyed by employees and contractors, executives and people needing temporary accommodation. We even have pet-friendly apartments available! We provide excellent customer service from the time you first contact us to make a booking, through to the end of your stay.
