I travel to Melbourne for business and stay at the Cosmo because it's affordable and so central to everything. Free wifi and secure parking is an excellent added bonus, and the staff are very friendly.

I really liked most things about this hotel - it's affordable, spacious, has free parking and the staff are excellent. By far the best value in St Kilda. I struggled with how to rate this hotel - it's great, but travellers should be aware that it's location can have some drawbacks. We stayed in room A202, a 2 bedroom apartment,... More

Absolutely loved this hotel. Staff were sophisticated yet friendly. Allowed us to check in early and provided us with excellent advice regarding getting around Melbourne and sights to see. Buffet breakfast was included in our package and was definitely worth getting up for (served until 10am). Room was very dark due to excellent block-out curtains, perfect for sleeping in. Room...

Average hotel, I think we were in one of the more basic room, strange that we had to go outside to enter room....It was very cold and we were glad it wasn't raining. Room was spacious but bathroom was very 'tired' and due for a facelift and an extension wouldn't hurt! Facilities in room good, beds were comfortable. Staff were... More
