Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

I stayed here for five nights in February. Overall, i was not enchanted although I have no really strong complaints. The first apartment assigned to me (one bedroom with a small balcony) was unacceptable. The balcony was pretty useless as it looked into brick walls of

We stayed three nights in a two bedroom patio apartment on the 12th floor. The apartment was very comfortable, very little street noise at that height and a decent view. The location was great, corner of Collins and Swanston. We used the kitchen and everything worked,

what is the difference in one bedroom apartment or superior one bedroom apartment?
Hi srast83, in regards to Breakfree on Collins, Melbourne, the difference between one bedroom apartment (22 sqm) and superior one bedroom apartment (32 sqm) is size. My advice :- when you decide to book superior one bdrm - in the comment section, make sure you specify NO CHANGES TO BOOKING. We booked sup 1bdrm for space and comfort but was 'upgraded' to 2bdrm apt which meant space was cramped. When we requested back for what we booked, was told 'sold out'. Size of rooms are avail on diff booking website, not on Breakfree website.

Just wondered if bathroom has walk in shower or over bath as I have M.S walk in is easier
Hi Smoogee, you will need to book a deluxe room, as they have regular walk in showers with x2 shower heads. All other room types have shower over bathtub and may not be suitable, apologies for any inconveniences this may, warmest regards, Raphael General Manager
