Reviews of this property
John and Ben are wonderful hosts and very pleasant people! Chatting with them was highly enjoyable. They supported us wherever needed. On the other side we had our nice, well equipped, very calm, clean, seperate accomodation. And Kensington is a nice district and it's easy to go by train to CBD. It couldn't have been better.
Thanks again, John and Ben, for the great time! Heiko and I'm looking forward to seeing you again - next year in Greece or somewhere else. :-)
Absolutely lovely ! and im speaking both about the place and Ben & John
i needed to relax after travelling a while, and feel home - couldn't find better place ti stay
The studio is charming, the bed is awesome, you can enjoy the lovely garden and enjoy calm and relaxing moments
Ben & John take care of you with breakfast and anything you need
The neighborhood is great too, very nice coffee places around, the river and racecourse not far, train very practical to go to CBD (15mn max !)
and cherry on the cake : the wifi working everywhere ! ;)
+ price, compared to other places for worse services is great !!
I would definitely recommand what im calling now "home" in Melbourne
And thank you again Ben & John, je suis très heureuse de vous avoir rencontrés et je n'aurais pas pu trouver mieux :)
Ce fut des hôtes très accueillant, qui laissent une part d'intimité a notre vie privée mais qui répondaient toujours présent pour quoi que ce soit.
un vrai petit nid douillé, chaleureux et bien placé.
Merci pour ces semaines très sympas.
Wir waren für drei Nächte bei Ben und John. Beide sind sehr freundlich und haben uns gleich alles erklärt. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und ruhig. Die Lage war ebenfalls super und man war in knapp 10min per Train mitten in der Stadt.
Also wir können das Zimmer nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen und würden bei einem weiteren Besuch, sofort wieder bei Ben und John buchen.
Sorry for the late review.
John and Ben are really wonderful hosts. They offered informations about the city and neighbourhood, nice chats, and really good breakfast which gave us a boost to a new day. There is a train station and a tram station in the near and another train station a bit farther. Transportation early in the morning and late in the evening is no problem. The garden room has its own bathroom and separate door. We enjoyed the time in Melbourne hosted by John and Ben.
Ben & John were wonderful hosts. Eager to please and help in any way possible. The accommodation was very clean and well maintained and had everything we needed. Would highly recommend.
My husband and son was made very welcome. Such a fantastic location and the room located in the back garden with it's own entrance.
Such a fantastic location, close to shops, cafes.
My husband took the bus from the airport to Broadmeadows station and then the train to Kensington. Was half the price of the airport shuttle to Southern Cross Station and then the train to Kensington.
Would highly recommend.
I recently stayed 3 weeks at Ben´s Garden Studio. It was lovely, the location is perfect. It is just a few minutes by train to Melbourne Central. Also the tram station and a supermarket are not far to walk.
The studio was perfect for just me and I felt really comfortable there.
John and Ben were great hosts, very welcoming and friendly. We loved the chats and general feeling of not just being customers. The room was very comfortable, with its own independent access. Breakfast was healthy and copious. Air con was a definite plus by 40° weather! The back yard was very pleasant, too. Kensington is a quiet neighborhood but conveniently close to the city. A very pleasant stay,
We recently had an enjoyable four day stay at Garden Studio 54. Ben and John met us and showed us around, including a quick run down on the local area, public transport etc. The studio is modern, clean & well appointed, with our own secure "front door" to a leafy back lane. Breakfast items and tea/coffee were available and topped up each day and it was tidied and serviced each day. The studio is in a very quiet area so no problem with traffic or noisy neighbours. We explored local centres on foot (several good cafes in Kensington and multicultural restaurants in Newmarket). Went by tram to the city and to North Melbourne. The train station is very close by and was a quick way to get into town. We could talk to Ben & John when we needed to, but otherwise it was quite private. Good value and happy to recommend to others. Cecily & Roy
