We chose the Tolarno Hotel for Grand Final weekend as they had a cancellation policy that was considerate of travelling football fans whose team may not get to the Grand Final, a price that was not inflated because of Grand Final weekend and the terrific reviews on Tripadvisor. It did not let us down! From check in to check out... More

The last time I had the chance to stay here was in 1994 and loved it then. What I love about it is it's wonderful character. The receptionist was very warm and let us check in early as the room was ready. We were given a generous late check out which we really appreciated. We had a balcony room but... More

Thankyou to the lovely friendly staff who were so helpful and approachable. As a first-time visitor to Melbourne, I found the location ideally close to the trams and beach and excellent cafes and restaurants, and the hotel ambience delightfully interesting. There is something very special in wandering the corridors and getting lost. Mirka Mora's murals throughout the restaurant downstairs are... More

I stayed with my daughter and grand daughter (baby) twice - each stay for one night. The first time we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor. The room had every thing we needed including 2 fridges and being at the rear of the building, noise wasn't a problem. Loved the art also. We were grateful for... More

Thanks to the staff at the Tolarno we had a great stay in Melbourne. The room was everything we needed. The Happy Hour was the best i've ever encountered - the complimentary plate had a gorgeous focaccia, olives, salami - yum. Bar man gave us an incredible dinner location walking distance from the hotel which was delicious. The hotel restaurant... More

My partner and I stayed here for three nights and on first impression we liked the hotel. We really liked all of the creative artwork on the walls, many pieces including the ones in our room that would would have been willing to purchase. The room overall was fine. We had a room with a small kitchen which was nice.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Tolarno for one night and we were very impressed! The location is good...just munites walk to St.Kilda beach and the Sunday market. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful. The hotel was very interesting. Artworks were displayed all over the wall...like an art gallery. The room was very clean and the bed... More

My family (wife and I + 21yr old daughter & 19yr old son) stayed for one night to attend a wedding at a function room on the St.Kilda foreshore. The hotel is located on busy Fitzroy street in the heart of the restaurant and bar area. It's only a 15 minute tram ride to the heart of the city or... More

My husband and I recently stayed in a junior suite with my elderly mother. Our 2 rooms were very clean and comfortable with our own ensuite bathrooms. Staff we're friendly, and had even put fresh flowers in my mothers room which she loved. We enjoyed the artworks throughout the hotel. Breakfast at Cacao was close to the hotel and a... More

Dear Kathryn T, Thank you for your recent review. We’re very pleased to hear that the Junior Suite suited your needs; it’s a good choice if you want to be close to each other but have your own facilities in each room. It’s always great to hear people say how much they enjoy the art throughout the hotel. Cacao is... More

Dear TenneH, Thank you for recent review. We are sorry to hear your stay was not to your satisfaction. For yourself and the benefit of other readers on Tripadvisor we do state on our website that we do not recommend balcony rooms for light sleepers.
