The Prince has good rooms with plenty of space. The rooms are clean and well kept. The attached restaurant and corner bar are great places to go. The location is also a huge plus. It is close to the beach and in the heart of St. Kilda

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and really enjoyed our stay, the staff were fantastic, very helpful and friendly. Very reasonably priced. The hotel has a pool and a spa, a bar and restaurant. While we didn't eat dinner in the restaurant we did have breakfast there each morning and the food was fantastic. We had cocktails in the bar... More

This is the second time staying here for a night out; New Year's Eve, to be exact, and we knew what we 'signed up for' upon making the reservation. St. Kilda boasts a vibrant, eclectic bunch of people- the restaurants and bars are plentiful and the Prince placed us in the thick of things, just as we wanted. Firstly, having... More

My husband and I stayed at the prince hotel during the Christmas holidays for three nights (23-26 dec). We booked via Mr & Mrs Smith thinking we would treat ourselves to a nice place for the holiday. Their choice of hotels is usually upscale, trendy and off the beaten track. What a disappointment! I won't go back to the Prince.... More

The Prince is right in the heart of St Kilda with views of the water from some rooms. The hotel is 'hip' and very modern. The rooms are really well equiped and comfortable with lovely toiletries. The location is outstanding - short tram ride into the city but right in the middle of the action of St. Kilda. Breakfast is... More

Set right in the heart of St Kilda what's not to like. If I'm not attending meeting on the outskirts of the City I like to be near the city within reach of bars, cafe's etc and the Prince is situated very centrally for all of that. My stay was brief but the room was nice and clean, the bed... More

Room was a super cool cnr suite. The interior was hip and boutique. Awesome bed on a riser. Cool drop pen day lights. The bathroom had towels galore! Big bath, big mirrors! More lovely lighting. Little balcony with a great view. Could see the water spalling they the trees. Commentary breakfast in morning was lovely. Would have been nice if... More

I stayed two nights either side of the Melbourne Cup. I was disappointed for a number of reasons: 1. I stayed on the 4th floor; I was expecting people to be enjoying themselves but the noise levels were thumpingly loud ... literally ... the walls very vibrating 2. I tried to get hold of reception several times without success. I... More

Stayed at the Prince many years ago and loved it. I decided to stay one night before transferring to the apartment I had booked because I was spending a few hours in the spa, so it was convenient. I was shocked by the decline in the standard of the hotel. Rooms are extremely dated, definitely all need to painted, re-furbished... More

Great hotel, good location, nice rooms and affordable. Great service at the front desk, decent bar. The place just needs a bit of love when it comes to maintenance. Rooms, corridors etc can do with a bit of paint as wear and tear is showing.
