And the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre is a short walk, just across Clarendon Street, opposite the Casino.

There are so many things of interest in or very close to Southbank such as Melbourne Aquarium, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square (Fed Square), Young & Jackson Hotel, St Andrews Cathedral, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Victorian Arts Centre.

You can also find Telstra Dome, Southern Cross Station, the Rialto Building & Stock Exchange, and the Melbourne Convention Centre. The Free City Circle Tram will take you right around the city. Along the way you can stop off at Queen Victoria Market and visit many famous Melbourne shopping locations.

If you want to go further field, you can take a tram to St Kilda (15 mins), Port Melbourne (10 mins), Bridge Road shopping strip (5 mins) or Chapel Street shopping & restaurant strip (20 mins). And CityLink is on your doorstep, connecting you with all major freeways out of the city.

And if you want to stay in, maybe the kids are sleeping, there is a wide range of DVD's in the apartment, relax on the balcony, or sit on the couch with a great coffee from the automatic coffee machine provided.

About Platinum Apartments Reservations

We are a family business who believe it's the simple things that count. We are genuine people who care and go out of way to accommodate our guests needs. Having a background as a nurse and midwife I have always nurtured and cared about people from all walks of life. I treat people with respect and, have always cared about how people feel. I am OCD about hygiene and cleanliness, but there is no room for movement here in this regard - things must be cleaned correctly!

I truly want people to experience a good time when in Melbourne, we are customer centric and real.

Here is a handy hint: If in doubt, one thing I have learnt - check people out!

Most people have a history on the internet. Look at how deep their history goes on social media. Facebook is a good place to start, then look at Instagram, LinkedIn, google etc... - is it only a few posts, or years of history? Read what they talk about or how they respond to their friends. It's hard to make up years of history.

Ring and speak to them - do they answer the phone or how do they respond to emails.

Fantastic- Everything you could ever need!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this apartment have thought of everything! Although we were not a group travelling with young children we could still appreciate the apartment would be well suited for those with children with colouring in books, DVDs and even a first aid kit (really useful for us with blisters from long days of walking!). The location is great and the owners are very accomodating- going out of the way allowing us to have early check in and late check in. Have recommended to friends and family, will be back for sure!

Perfect for the family

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this apartment and it really cannot be fault. An easy 5 minute walk from Southbank means you have quick easy access to everything Melbourne has to offer. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage. For the young families there are toys, cots etc to make your stay 'easy'. We loved how the many people before us had left behind bits and pieces for the follow occupants to use, for example - dish washing liquid, washing powder, glad wrap, coffee etc. We even left a few beers behind!

The booking and key collection process was straight forward and helpful.

Great location to Southbank restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. The only negatives were the slow lifts and my husband found the street noise a little noisy but the kids and I thought it was ok.It was well priced and spacious.
