I really enjoyed my stay here, all though it was quite confusing in that I wasn't too sure on how to turn on the electricity, but that's beside the point, the bed was comfy, and the food at The Hub was amazing. I do recommend it for people who want to stay close to the city whether they're local, interstate...

My regular business trips require me to find accommodation that is centrally located to the Caulfield and city areas and Rydges St Kilda provides me with the home away from home. The rooms are comfortable and pleasantly appointed with sufficient work space to enable me to complete business presentations and notes. The staff are always helpful and courteous. I look...

Its a very easy place to stay. The reception ladies are excellent and Oliver (Ollie) in the bar/restaurant is the coolest guy and the main reason we eat there. He gives amazing service and lends awesome atmosphere to the whole experience. The rooms are small but comfortable and the beds are wonderfully comfortable. Thanks to all for a good experience.

Great location and staff but choose your room carefully We spend five nights here and the staff were about the best we have experienced. Nothing was too much trouble. The location is terrific within a couple of minutes walk to St Kilda beach and an easy tram ride to all the attractions Melbourne has to offer. Our room was small...

Staff were very helpful, after the first room smelt sightly damp (probably as aircon had been off???) they changed my room and it was lovely. I'd requested a bath as I love a glass of wine and relax in the tub, and the bathroom was great. Room clean, plenty of room. One negative - a really weird remote control for...

Lovely location for a quick getaway with the partner. Nice location with good surrounding atmosphere. Not to far from the CBD as well as trams outside for public transport. The room had a wonderful feel to it and had everything you need.

Comfortable surroundings. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to foodies' heaven and public transport at the door. View of Port Phillip Bay fantastic. Short hop to the fashion on Lyon Street and near Albert Park for Grand Prix. Access by means other than lifts difficult for those who don't like them

This is a reasonably priced hotel in a great location for the beach, Luna Park and the trams to the city. There are, however, many prostitutes and crack heads outside the hotel, so it's card key access after 10pm. The rooms don't look like they do on line, but they have everything that I needed. Fridge, tea making, hair dryer,...
