I booked my room at The Prince on wotif. My key criteria was that it had to be close to the Ironman finish line in Catani Gardens. I didn't want to walk far after the race. The Prince would have to be the closest hotel to the gardens so I was surprised that I was able to book only a... More

I stayed here for work, for the close proximity to our conference venue. It wasn't my choice of hotels, company determined. The hotel itself is nicely decorated, dark and brooding, and more the boutique style of hotel. You'd love this place if you are into that style of accommodation, that Melbourne is famous for. You can't beat the location -... More

We are actually in the process of rolling out new beds throughout the hotel, so I hope that this will address the bed issue for you.

We had a room on the last floor which was among the more expensive ones, it was nice and had a small balcony with a view. It was done with some nice ideas and good taste, a real "design hotel". Unfortunatly the windows were very dirty so the view out was a bit like if it would rain... Another thing... More

My husband and I had a quick one night stopover as we were in town for a concert. We have dined in Circa a few times before and based on our amazing dining experiences had high expectations for the hotel.

Why stay in a hotel in the CBD when u can stay on St Kilda! I love the location close to the beach with great restaurants and cafe all close by. I had a room on the 4th floor(top) with a balcony. Not a very big room but very comfortable and with a great shower. Fantastic wifi. Staff at reception... More

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in Australia. Spent just two nights at this hotel prior to visiting family. So glad we did it was great. Very stylish & the check in was very efficient, friendly & professional. Our room was perfect for two nights but if staying longer I would recommend a larger room. Whilst there the temperature rose... More

I'm staying here right now and the fact that I'm writing a review in the middle of the night should speak to how noisy this place is. Hotel staff just told me that my room (420) should be the one most sheltered from noise. Fact is: function on so prized The Deck has just finished (1.30am) and I had loud... More
