"My Mum and I have been staying at the house. The location was perfect for us, as we prefer walking we could explore the funky Fitzroy and CBD all by foot! Brunswick Street was just a 5 min walk and 15 mins to the CBD. The house is quiet and with own bedroom plus ensuite bathroom we had all the privacy we needed. The other people in the house were all lovely and respectful! It was always very clean as well. Effie is such a lovely caring woman we could always contact her 24/7 for any questions and she is always trying to help as best as she can. Thank you so much for everything, we really enjoyed our stay! This place is hard to beat, we would recommend it to everyone! Kind Regards Tina and Petra"

"A BIG Thank You to Effie who made our stay in Fitzroy just perfect. Effie is a very kind, friendly and welcoming host who greeted us on arrival and provided us with much detailed information about the house and the locality. The house is very clean, tidy and well organized and our room and ensuite located downstairs was comfortable, quiet and private. We much appreciated the lovely hot shower, very comfortable bed, TV, wifi, use of kitchen etc. everything we could want. The location is fantastic being a short tram ride from the city and also a very short walk from gourmet cafes and restaurants in Gertrude and Brunswick Streets. We ate a different cuisine every night and loved exploring the area. We would be very pleased to recommend Effie's place and will definitely stay there again when visiting Melbourne....she certainly deserves top rating!"

"The house is in a great location. A couple of tram stops from the free tram zone or just a walk into the city and to the great variety of bars and restaurants in Fitzroy area. The room had all the amenities as described and a coin laundry for the resident's use. Effie is such a great host. She gave me a detailed tour of the house and told me about the locality. There was even a printed guide of local amenities and attractions. Other residents are very friendly long term residents so there's a homely feel to the place."

"We have recently moved to Melbourne and this room was our first home away from home. We've had a great experience. The house is in walking distance to the CBD, extremely central and with transports at the door. Fitzroy is an exciting and vibrant neighbourhood, where you can find very nice restaurants, bars and cafes. The room had everything we needed and the common spaces were always tidy. Effie is a great hostess and the place is very well managed. Basically, everything was excellent and we couldn't have asked for anything more :)
Thanks Effie for making us feel at home! You made everything so easy and we had a great time at the house. We'll have to meet soon"

"We loved the location, the neighbourhood is really cool, lot’s of nice bars/restaurants/shops… and it’s an easy start to go around and visit Melbourne. The house is big and so was our room, it was really spacious, and the bed very comfortable. The common spaces are very well kept & clean. There is a really nice and friendly atmosphere with the flatmates, if you want your own space very easy to have it but if you wish to socialize there is often some one around to have a drink with or have a BBQ. We would definitely recommend this place, for short or long stay"

"The Melbourne Inner City Accommodation were perfect for my stay - the room had everything I needed (bed, desk, couch, TV and of course air conditioning!), and the common spaces were well kept up (professionally cleaned often!) and very organized. I also appreciated that there was a network cable connection for high speed internet in the room. In addition, everyone else staying here was extremely friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Melbourne"

"We've had an excellent stay with Melbourne Inner City Accommodation and never had any issues. We were in regular contact with Effie who made our stay feel as though we were living at home. The house is in a brilliant location and is great for those working inner or outer city, due to Melbourne Central being only a 10 minute walk away. The room with the ensuite was clean and modernly furnished. The Kitchen has excellent facilities and a great range of cooking utensils. Overall the experience of living in the house for the last couple of months has been very enjoyable"

"The location of the house is really good, not too far from the CBD (15 min walk) but still in a quite area. The house was very clean and has all you need (for cooking, washing, etc.). The flatmates were very respectful and it was never too loud. Effie was really kind and helpful and I really enjoyed my stay. Thank you"

"I had a wonderful stay here (so much so that I even decided to extend by a few days). The room was everything it said it was and the house very comfortable, in an awesome location, clean and well equipped. Effie is a perfect host. She lives elsewhere but is always very responsive and helpful. Also great for a chat :-) I would definitely recommend this place and will keep it on my list for my next visit to Melbourne"

"Have just spent three months at 173 Vic Pde, before returning to the UK, and had a great time, would very much recommend it for both short and long term stays. Aside from the obvious charms of the city location, its a really well equipped house with hotel style rooms and high quality shared space. As an added bonus Effie is a fabulous landlady who creates a really sociable atmosphere and as result I've met some great people there. I look forward to staying again soon"

"We love this place! We stayed at 2 house share properties during our working holiday in Australia. This place was recommended by a friend who stayed here and we loved it just like she did. Our room had everything we needed, it was comfortable and we had our own bathroom. Internet was free, not like the other place we stayed at. The staff are friendly and easy to talk to, and our house is modern and clean. We really recommend staying at 173 Victoria Parade."
Matteo & Cristina - Italy
"When we think of 173 Victoria Parade, we think of being in the heart of Melbourne. The location is fantastic with easy access into the CBD both by foot & the efficient tram system that underlies it. In the vicinity are a whole host of amenities such as Fitzroy Gardens, the MCG and a plethora of eateries with most cultures represented. The inteior of the building is faultless. A clean kitchen with the latest cooking equipment & a comfortable lounge with a large cable tv makes the residency very homely. The bedrooms are modern & the accompanying bathrooms complete the experience. Finally and most importantly is the quality of service. Enough cannot be said of Effie's efforts and her committment to ensuring complete guest satisfaction. Any maintenance issues were smoothly and swiftly dealt with, always with a smile on her face. She was also extremely approachable & understanding. We had a fantastic stay here & would recommend it to anyone looking to get the most out of Melbourne."
