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. Even though there was loud music from a nearby pub, the room was quiet overnight (we were in 408, which is up on the fourth floor... More

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!

We held our wedding at The Prince Deck, with ourselves and many of our guests staying in-house. We stayed the night of our wedding and I also stayed the night before, with myself and my bridesmaids getting ready in our suite. We stayed in The Prince Premier Suite which is a corner suite. It was light-filled, airy, modern and luxurious... More

We were here for a wedding (which was amazing by the way). We stayed in a deluxe room with courtyard views ( not really much to look at) but the room was really spacious. We had friends stay in deluxe rooms but with street/ocean rooms and they weren't as big. I also spent abit of time in the bride's room... More

Had a wonderful night at the Prince & a celebratory dinner at Circa. Both were wonderful and we will certainly return. Everything went smoothly & without stress from check-in to check-out. Pity the weather was so shocking but it was nice & cosy in room 413. I want one of those showers at home! Loved the decor. The only downside... More
