The location Apartment 401 is in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD on the fourth floor of Majorca House, a gorgeous art nouveau building of faience and twisted gold columns. Flinders Street railway station and Federation Square are a block away, the Yarra River and Domain Parklands just beyond.

The place An antique lift transports guests to the fourth floor, where 401 has a prime north-east corner position overlooking Flinders Lane and Degraves Street. The entry hall leads to a well-equipped kitchen, dining/lounge with comfortable leather seating and the bedroom with its wrought-iron balcony over Centre Place. The bathroom has Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and temperamental hot water. Lofty windows flood the space with light and capture pleasing architectural views of pediments, pilasters and neoclassical flourishes.

The experience Flinders Lane is ground zero for gourmet dining. Journal Canteen across the lane is great for coffee and breakfast. Hip city eateries, such as MoVida, Chin Chin and Cumulus Inc, are all within easy striking distance, while culture buffs are spoilt by a cluster of commercial art galleries on the doorstep (pop into the whimsical Mailbox 141 gallery, in the foyer of 141 Flinders) and heavyweights such as the National Gallery of Victoria and Australian Centre for the Moving Image just minutes away.
