After my more extensive travelling earlier in the year, it took me
some time to arrange to go back to Melbourne, with the idea of
The Honey Apartments are located in Melbourne's CBD. There are two
apartments; I stayed in apartment #2. Of all the places I have
stayed, this place was by far the most comfortable for me. There has
been some wear and tear since I first visited over two years ago, and
most of the original artworks have been removed and sometimes, not
always, replaced, but in the overall sense this apartment is still a
great place to stay.
Full kitchen and laundry facilities (in the apartment itself),
DVD, a selection of books, CDs, videos, and many convenient odds and
ends. I think there is dial-in internet access. Both Honey
Apartments have two bedrooms. I had complete privacy for the entire 6
weeks of my stay. The apartment was not serviced during this time,
but that was fine for me. A vacuum cleaner and other maintenance-related
items were supplied.
I wish that I had photos of the area. I think that such photos
would be one of the most important considerations. I am not sure how
to explain, but I find Melbourne's labyrinthine interior to somehow
resonate on a personal level to the extent that no other city has
ever felt as 'right' to me.
This is also one of least expensive places to stay of those I had
chosen, especially if staying for an extended period. The apartments
are imaginatively decorated, and possess an uplifting atmosphere. The
building itself is art deco, and the elevators are kind of cool.
