Reviewed yesterday NEW

Good little hotel with a great location, just metres away from St Kilda and luna park, with the beach only minutes away. Room was clean and very comfy. Stayed with my 3 year old and she loved the size of the terraced room. Really helpful, friendly staff that made it an easy, stress free stay Highly recommended!

Convenient location in St Kilda and close enought to Albert Park. Staff is friendly, free wifi and parking a plus. Although it was a busy weekend for F1 we still got our room early which was great. Cafe/diner accross the street is worth a visit.

Works as described! Large comfortable rooms,great value and in the heart of the Restaurant district.Nothing to complain about. Next door property had a big party on all night, but the Duty Manager did all she could to call the police who never came.Not the Hotels fault.

An excellent hotel in a good location . Great staff and good rooms- breakfast ok but a bit limited. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend to others. Shops and restaurants/ bars etc all close by.

The Reception staff were a credit to the Hotel. At all times they were extremely professional and courteous. The bed was comfortable and we all slept well even though the Hotel is situated in central St Kilda.

I guess I expected more! The reception is light, bright and modern with efficient service, the rooms look great on the surface but look a little closer and you are let down - cheapo curtains with holes in the black outs, filthy windows and, if your room faces Carlisle St, you get pedestrian and road/tram noise all night. The bathroom...

Very comfortable room, reasonalby priced. The staff was very proactive in recommending places to eat and see, even lending us Moki cards to use the tram. We only had to top off the cards before returning them. We had a delightful stay there prior to heading off for Tasmania.

What a disappointment. This hotel is old and run down and very shabby. There is nothing ‘boutique’ about it. It is much more akin to a 1970’s Motel, than a hotel. The outdoor corridors that lead to your room are so run down, dark and dingy. Walking to our room for the first time was making me VERY nervous, as...
