We have stayed there every year for the last 12 years when we go to Melbourne for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Great location-15 minute walk from bed to grandstand Tram to the city at the front door, lots of places to eat, rooms are smallish but enough for a 4 day stay. Great helpful staff.

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago for 7days. It's convieniently located within a very short walk of St kilda shops and restaurant. There's also tram lines right in front of hotel for easy access to get to Central city Melbourne. The hotel has lovely helpful staff. Some rooms facing Fitzroy street can be slightly... More

A quick getaway in a "local" suburb is a luxury and in this case a privilege. This hotel puts you right in the heart of St Kilda with pier, pubs and plenty to do right at your doorstep. The hotel is not a grande style, so if this is what your're looking for keep moving along. This gives you a... More

The spot is great if you want to be in the thick of it on fitzroy st. The Italian bistro downstairs looked lovely. Friendly and efficient check in, parking voucher ($7 round the corner) and lots of gorgeous art on the walls everywhere. The colour scheme is a touch bordello but the art helps. The rooms are a squeeze with... More

Great hotel, loved all the art works, parking just around the corner in secure lot. Trams just out the front door - although we heard nothing in our room which was near the rear of the property. Although the rooms are small, they have all you need.

Hi Pam S, Thank you for your review. It pleasing to hear you found the parking easy, in the undercover park we use around the corner. Leaving the car and using the trams is a much more relaxing way to get around Melbourne from St Kilda. Nice to know your room was quiet , which they do tend to be... More

Enjoyed this sanctuary in the heart of St Kilda. Staff were really friendly and helpful, room was comfortable, clean, and quiet, with everything that we needed. Beautifully comfortable beds. Hotel was within walking distance to anywhere in St Kilda. Good value for money.

Lovely hotel in a good location. The room was quite small but was adequate. Very helpful staff. Getting a cab from the hotel in the morning was an issue, took 40 minutes (tried phoning and using an app + waiting for an empty one to pass).

Hi Jon B, Thank you for your recent review. We are glad to hear Tolarno's met your needs. Unfortunately Melbourne taxis are not the best promotion for our city; I am sorry you had so much trouble getting one. I hope, if you are able to stay with us again, you have no transport issues. Kind regards, Jane More

A wonderful hotel - friendly staff with trendy atmosphere. Its location is perfect and it is only a 20min walk, along the beachfront, to the great St Kilda restaurants/cake shops (+ the one's nearby!) The cafe/restaurant was closed, being Easter, but it looked as though it would be up to standard too.

Hello W9937FMChris, We really appreciate you writing a review. It's good to hear you absorbed yourself in the artwork and atmosphere of the hotel, and the surrounding area. The European cake shops on Acland Street are a must see (and try) and yes, we have some very nice cafes near the hotel too! Hope to see you again if you... More
