3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was very nice. excellent beds, the shower pressure was average and the water kept on changing temperature while trying to shower. The rooms were set out nicely and the view onto St Kilda beach was amazing both day and night. The front entry to the hotel has no bay to pull in so you park on the street,... More

Perfect spot and still near the city. We stayed in June and got upgraded to a ocean view. the rooms have been upgraded since we last stayed and St Kilda is such a lovely spot. rooms were good - the only thing I would say is no foxtel /movies ? apart from that cant beat location.

I stayed for one night to attend a show at the Palais. Ideal location, near the tram stop and all that St Kilda has to offer. I didn't eat at the hotel, but have no complaints about it. Second stay at an Accor hotel and like the previous one, found the staff friendly and efficient. I had a pre-paid room... More
