Mantra 100 Exhibition

I've just spent 48 hours trying to organise myself. I have no idea how I crammed 3 months worth of clothing into that tiny backpack, but it took 3 hours. And that bargain quick drying towel (ok, ginormous bath towel) from a Well Known Outdoor Clothing and Equipment store didn't make it into the final pack. The bloody thing weighs 14.4 kg ...
... called at 6:50am, that is the earliest I have been called, thankfully my phone was turned on! I was thinking, they call me this early because the school must be far. Well, it was but it was alright to get to. I had to rely only on trams this time. Tram 78/79 for 30mn until stop 61 and then another tram48 for about 30mn until stop 38/39. It was a very nice neighbourhood (rich) and a very nice school. The first kids I had were a little loud but alright, it was a good ...
... School. I had my first taste of open classrooms and team teaching. This school is in a fancy quiet residential area and you can see the school is well off as soon as you walk into the classroom. The classrooms is like a giant playground! Its an awesome classroom and I would have loved to be in a classroom like that as a kid. Open classroom means there are 5 other classes going on at the same time in the same space, but are slightly seperated by activity ...
Another few days have passed and we've found ourselves settling into a pattern; sleep, eat, shop, visit, repeat! It has been magical. Friday night saw a small but very enjoyable reunion of Trinity Old Boys and Monash Alumni at the Fox Hotel in Collingwood. Beer was drunk, parmas were eaten and stories funny and memorable were shared. I had a great evening and I hope everyone who made it did too! The morning after drinking ...
Got up a bit late must have been tried, went out and about Melbourne bought a dongle for the internet 50 bucks for 3 gb not bad (internet here is expensive) went to a bar call young and Jackson's very famous in Melbourne with chloe's bar up stairs (there is a painting on the wall above a fire place of chloe's many times i have been told to meet me under chole's by old friend in Melbourne) left the british lions supporters there ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mantra 100 Exhibition Melbourne
Sistemazione fantastica, strutture eccellenti e posizione ideale. Proprio a due passi da tutto, soprattutto dai ristoranti. A poca distanza a piedi dalla zona dello shopping. Il personale era molto disponibile e accomodante. Abbiamo richiesto una partenza ritardata che ci hanno accordato senza problemi. Soggiorneremo ancora qua ogni volta che andremo a Melbourne.
Excellent accommodation, facilities & location. Just around the corner from everything, especially places to eat. Short stroll to the shopping precinct. Staff very helpful & accommodating. We required a late check out which they gladly were able to accommodate for. Will definitely be staying there everytime we go to Melbourne.
L'atrio non colpisce molto ma è compensato da una fantastica sistemazione. L'appartamento era enorme con un ampio salotto e una cucina completamente attrezzata. La camera da letto era abbastanza grande con un enorme letto e un bagno lussuoso. L'appartamento è stato ristrutturato di recente con mobili costosi. Un ottimo prezzo.
Die Lobby ist keineswegs beeindruckend, aber die Zimmer sind atemberaubend. Riesiges Apartment mit großer Lounge und voll ausgestatteter Küche. Schlafzimmer von guter Größe mit massivem Bett und luxuriösem Badezimmer. Wurde kürzlich mit teuren Armaturen ausgestattet. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.
Unimpressive lobby but made up for by amazing accomodation. Huge apartment with large lounge / fully equipped kitchen. Good sized bedroom with massive bed and luxurious bathroom. Has recently been refurbished with expensive fittings. Very good value.
We arrived early afternoon and were initially checked in to a smoking room. We stepped in to the room and it was too smoke logged for us and our 1 year old so we returned to reception to be checked in to a non smoking room which was fantastic and not any trouble at all to Maria in reception who was lovely and very patient with our son touching all her things!
stayed a week in self catering accommodation, Pacific International on Exhibition. Excellent accommodation, would use them again. Very modern and right in the heart of Melbourne coud'nt hav e been better and there was a 24/7 supermarket very near by. If you have a National Trust Membership card, take it with you to oz, you would be surprised where you can use it. Ned Kelly's jail was a good visit, and do go to the MCG and have a tour round the ground etc. its well worth it, also the casino area down on the waterfront, the food there is fantastic. Melbourne is a great place, and don't forget a day trip to the Great Ocean Road.
A lovely one bedroom apartment, kitchen facilities very good.
Bedroom cushioned between living area and bathroom which was great as no noise from busy main road.
Not in the heart of melbourne but great tram services a short walk away.
would stay again, shame we only had two nights there.
OK, not too impressed
We stayed in a two bed apartment. It was a very dark and the main living area was overpowered by an expanse of white kitchen cupboards. I'm not sure their purpose, as the equipment for the kitchen took up half of one cupboard. This left approx 15 huge cupboards bare! This did make the living area utilitarian and had a souless cold feel to it. The bedrooms were ok. The back room had no window and was very dark. The bathroom was tiny, with a half sized bath. Sorry to keep on about the kitchen, but the designers of the room could have halved the kitchen area to make the bathroom a lot bigger. It was very central though and the staff was pleasant. The room was also clean.
(Luxurious) home away from home!!
Stayed at the Pacific International in May 2003. A quiet little boutique hotel, it is perfectly located on Exhibition St which is only a 5-10 minute walk away from the main Melbourne High Streets.
The Pacific has spacious, beautifully decorated rooms with separate bedroom and living areas and chic, well-appointed bathrooms. The living rooms also have their own kitchens and dining tables (so no room service) which, along with the comfy sofas, make the Pacific a real home away from home.
All in all, had a wonderful stay at the Pacific, which successfully combines the luxury of a 4* hotel with the comforts of home.
