Room was clean and the staff was great. If your plan is to party in St Kilda, this is your place. However, if you are planning on spending most of your time in the city or doing tours of any kind, it's far. 2 of my tours wouldn't pick up that far and the 2 tours that did picked me...

Dear Patricia S, Thank you for writing us a review. Our amazing location in the heart of vibrant St Kilda does unfortunately mean that some of our street facing room types do receive some of the street noise. We have many different room types available to cater for all of our guests' different needs and wants. I'm sorry to read...

Great location close to Ackland St restaurants, tram, Sky Bus, beach. Hotel is older style but good. Good value for money and for budget minded people. We were on the 3rd floor and it was very quiet, no road noise to speak of so slept well.

Nice little hotel with friendly staff in a handy location. Good value for money however we were disappointed in the bathroom and plumbing problems. I would go back there. Curtains allow a lot of light in from the busy street in the front of the building, they need block-out type curtains to allow for a better night sleep.

I have stayed at the Cosmopolitan many times. The hotel is well positioned in St Kilda, close to everything and well priced for couples or families. Customer service is always great. Some of the apartments do attract street noise so if you are a light sleeper mention this when booking. Highly reccomend this hotel.

Excellent hotel, great location in St Kilda right opposite one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Australia. Very friendly and helpful staff always with a smile. Close to tram stop and loads of restaurants and secure parking for free. Definitely recommend this place to friends.

I stay at this hotel all the time. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. It's great value for money and the location is fantastic. Plenty of parking in the hotel grounds also and it's free. I have recommended The Cosmopolitan to quite a few of my friends and they now stay there regularly too.

The room was comfortable and the hotel well located. Reasonable price, free wifi and free parking. Staff were friendly. We prepaid via Hotel.com and the hotel put $100 on my credit card which they will now refund over the next few days. Most Australian hotels do not deduct a deposit like this.
