Hi guys,

I am in In Melbourne for 5 days-5 Nights: Hotel/Service Apartment Suggestion needed

I am planning to go to Melbourne in Mid Feb 2014 for my initial entry in Australia for PR Activation.

Can anyone suggest me an economical option to stay in Melbourne ?

Three People: myself, wife and a 5 month old kid

Some place that is friendly and accomodating with infant/kid will be best.

Please suggest asap.

Hi webmailankit,

how is that urgent? You are moving in mid-Feburuary and it's not like you are stranded in Melbourne right now without a place to stay .

Anyway: The best option is to stay with a) friends/family or b) look at short-term accommodation (hotels, holiday rentals, AirBnB, gumtree private rentals etc.). Many migrants also initially opt for flatshares, if they make the initial move without their families. With kids I'd recommend holiday rentals (= more expensive, but at least you have your own kitchen etc.) or a bed and breakfast (e.g. via AirBnB).

Check the following threads for tips on suburbs, renting and living in Melbourne:

Good luck with the move,
Monika

Monica,

Thanks for your Reply. And thanks for your suggestion. I do not understand why did you reply to this post at all. Your suggestion did not contains any Hotel/Service Apartment names and clearly my query is not seek advice on how to live without a hotel.

This is URGENT because I want to book it right away to grab the best deal well in advance. Perhaps you dont know any of that as your suggestion is completely around seeking family/friends assistance which by the way not necessarily available to all......right ?

Thanks for letting me know that I am not stranded in Melbourne That helped a lot.

Monika has given you the suggestions available for you and also given you so many links where you can get the details. How can you tell she hasnt given you a proper name if an accommodation? A real estate agent only could give u exact details.. Do some reading and research.

Do you expect that someone here will give you accommodation details with name contact details and prepare food for you when your landing in Melbourne?

Common..

I did the reading. And you better not tell me about my reading abilities. Perhaps check yours. I clearly am asking about the HOTELS and SERVICE APARTMENTS, did i ever mentioned about rented place or a leased property ?? What would I do with it for 3-4 days stay ??

First and foremost Monica(Who is a Privileged Moderator) is writing her comments in a sarcastic manner. And on the top of it you are taking her side by whipping me endorsing her wisdom !!

Did you read that I am going to travel with an Infant ?? Did you understood that I want someone to reply who has travelled with kids and have faced such a scenario ?? If not then why are you jumping in ??

Brother, this Forum is not to spread Gyaan and take sides. My post is clearly asking for something else while you are focussing on me prooving me stupid.

Simplifying for you: "I am Asking suggestions for a good Hotel/Service Apartment where expats have stayed with kids"

By the way a suggestion, Monica the moderator and the other guy the senior expat, Show some maturity and be a little less aggressive and a little more courteous. Focus on individual's need not what you know and can dump on this forum !!

Asking for help and being hothead is not a good combination. Dude cool down. People here can only guide you, point you to some direction, dont expect to get exact details. I dont see anything wrong with Monika's suggestions. She tried to explain all possible solutions. You could have easily picked up the one applicable to you.

I believe she pointed you to some direction.

So please be humble and try to appreciate the fact that some is trying to help you. and please don't come all your anger guns blazing on me.

Hi webmailankit,

I did not recommend any particular hotels or service apartments because

1.) I don't live in Melbourne.

2.) This information is readily available if you use web platforms like TripAdvisor (for hotels and B&Bs), serviced-apartments.com.au, stayz.com.au or AirBnB. All these pages have reviews and you can check availability and book straightaway.

Anyway, my first statement was a bit snarky, yes. But the second paragraph was really meant to help you out - the anxiety of moving to a new city (in our case: Sydney) without friends/family to stay with is still fresh in my mind. If you go through the threads there are lots of recommendations on temporary accommodation in there as well. You may also wish to look for temporary accommodation in an area that you want to live in. At the beginning, you will likely not have a car, so much of the house/flat hunting has to be done on foot or via public transport. We stayed with two AirBnB hosts in inner Sydney because we knew we wanted to get a flat there or in the surrounding suburbs.

Mod wisdom of the day: If you feel offended by a comment, take a big breath (or 4 or 5), let it go and reply in a calm manner. Or don't reply and hit the "report post" button on the upper right corner, if a conversation gets out of hand and you want the mods to intervene.

Cheers,
Monika

Just try Quality service apartment for alternatives. Check based on your budget and your preferred places. Enjoy your search using the website other members suggested above. It's summer time here, but Melbourne weather is unpredictable, bring some light jackets. Good luck.

Dude, Just read your second post and then tell who is aggressive. This forum is to help each other and not to offend anyone.. as your post was so harsh the reply to you was also the same.

you get back what you give..
