27 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Melbourne's CBD - Updated 2023


Everybody knows Melbourne, right? Apparently it’s the second most populous city in Australia and the capital of the state of Victoria. It’s located on the southeastern side of the country, by the coast, like all big cities of Australia. Usually, when people visit Melbourne they want to be in the centre of everything. And what would be a better centre than the Central Business District of the city? But we’ve all got to agree that accommodations in big cities are often much the same and become pretty boring. Not this time, as there are plenty of unique Airbnbs in Melbourne. Let me introduce you to the list of the most interesting Airbnbs in Melbourne’s CBD in Australia.

1. Luxury apartment with stunning cityscapes (from USD 134)

Your trip to the bustling city of Melbourne deserves a home that lets you admire its beauty from a higher perspective. This luxury apartment is just the perfect place for that. Cityscapes and technicolor skies will be your all-day views from the unit. Aside from breathtaking vistas, you’ll also be spoiled with modern amenities such as unlimited WiFi and smart TV with access to a streaming platform.

Your slumbers will be well-taken care of by the queen-size bed with premium bedding and linen. Follow up a good night’s sleep with a hearty breakfast that you can prepare in the fully equipped kitchen. On days when you wish to skip the cooking, you can check out the nearby chic restaurants and cafes at Elizabeth and Franklin Street.

7. Classic apartment in Collins Street (from USD 113)

Timeless appeal is what this classic apartment in Collins Street brings to the table. It has been expertly remodeled into a modern retreat but the timber floors, tall ceilings, and art nouveau window were all retained. This fine blend of old and new is coupled with modern fittings such as a flat-screen TV, wireless speaker, air-conditioning, and WiFi. Similarly, the fully equipped kitchen received equal attention to detail to enable all your home-cooking pursuits.

From this third-floor unit, a nice view of Collin Street’s lush trees and varied establishments can be enjoyed. But by no means stay indoors as the charming street and beyond is worth exploring. Great shops, buildings, parks, and gardens, not to mention the lovely weather, await you outdoors.
