We stayed here because we wanted to go to a restaurant in rripponlea we found this location perfect. It was easy access to chapel street as well which was great for shopping & going out for dinner. We were greeted warmly, the restaurant Circa was excellent; breakfast had great selections, the food and service was awesome. The noise level was... More

We have now stayed at four different hotels along Fitzroy Street, St Kilda mainly due to the close proximity to great restaurants and cafés in that area. Unfortunately, previous stays in the "Premier Suite" raised expectations to a point where staying in a "base level" Boutique Room was a bit of a disappointment - not that there was much wrong...

I'd stay here any time while in Melbourne. Great for St. Kilda, the hotel is couple minutes from the beach. Good rooms, good service, very nice breakfast at the nearby cafe that caters for the hotel. Very lively area with lots of bars and restaurants, but hotel was quiet and comfortable. Did not miss anything, and hope to be back.

My wife and I are regular visitors to Melbourne and The Prince is the hotel we love to stay at. We love the location in St Kilda, so close to great places to eat, shop or browse, we love the smaller intimacy of this hotel, the amazing Circa restaurant and downstairs Acland Street Cantina, and the Aurora Spa for some...

Had a lovely few days at the Prince. Rooms were nicely decorated and stylish. Not the biggest rooms but well set up. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Included breakfast was delicious (portion size was modest -probably what I should eat rather than what I usually eat - quality perhaps rather than quantity) Room service food, delicious and good value....

Stayed here on a Friday night. The room itself was lovely- clean, spacious and modern looking. Free parking was good too (get your ticket validated at reception) The bed & pillows were very comfortable.

Staff from reception and restaurant are all very friendly. I like the stylish room furnishing and minimalist bathroom decor. It is also very good for me to have WIFI and breakfast included in the rate. Room service is fast and fairly tasty. Overall it meets all criteria.

Superb location in St Kilda, right by a tram stop. Beautifully designed and decorated. Professional and helpful staff. Room was stylish and reasonably sized. Good, free wifi. Breakfast included in the Acland Street Cantina - Mexican themed and delicious. Would recommend!
