I booked it at the last minute. It was a bit more expensive than usual but that was because of the Australian Open. Even flights were expensive. I got a room on the fourth floor ...it was clean, cleaning ladies came in every morning.....bed was comfy....they had treats and drinks for sale but like every hotel they were expensive ....staff...

We stayed here for 5 nights over the New year. We picked this hotel due to its location near to the beach and easy access to the city. As per most the other reviews this hotel is dated and could do with a good clean and re-paint but this did not affect our stay as the location was great and... More

Stayed here for the recent gatorade triathlon in st kilda. The hotel has much improved since changing from urban to rydges. Feels cleaner and fresher. The staff were very helpful and accomodating of all our needs, quite happy with the large spacious room with comfy beds. Late check out was fantastic. No issues with resturant downstairs. Location is great other... More

Spent 7 nights over Christmas in this Rydges hotel. We had paid for breakfast for the 7days but the breakfast was a set breakfast from the menu. We did not like the what was on the menu so we asked for eggs and toast with some bacon and orange juice and were told the bacon and orange juice were not... More

The Hotel + Service + Personal were very nice, the only thing that was a bit unlucky was the fact that the pool in the hotel was under construction and nobody told it would be closed! The Food/Burger restaurant is Ok, Breakfast a bit expensive but fresh and good.

Room is very small but comfortable enough for two people. Close to Tram, shops and restaurants and Luna Park. Short distance to St Kilda beach. Car park is limited and not guarantee you will get a space.

It's been awhile since I stayed at this hotel and it's changed hands from Urban to Rydges. The room we had was fairly compact, bathroom was ok size. The was no good view from room 308- overlooking rooftops and backs of buildings. The bed however was comfortable, the bathroom supplies were good. Staff were so, so, could have been more... More

We arrived early after disembarking the Spirit of Tasmania. I don't know if it made a difference by being a member of their hotel group and having booked directly with them and I guess it would depend on how full the hotel is, But ... We were able to check in straight away...which was fabulous! Friendly staff, greeted with a... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Rydges St Kilda, what a great find! Casual, unassuming ambience completely in keeping with the area. The standard room is not overly huge, but is quite contemporary, clean and in good condition. Room includes (very comfortable) king size bed, work desk and decent size bathroom. The absence of pay tv channels was strange however.... More

We got a good deal on lastminute.com for this hotel, so overall can't complain. The lcoation is great, right in the middle of restaurants/cafes and tram stop on Fitzroy St. However that's also a double edged sword, as the location close to POW hotel means that noisy doof doof music from that place on the Friday nite was pretty annoying...
