The beds were super comfy with King size beds not readily available in many other hotels. The breakfast at The Hub was so convenient and they were happy to substitute menu items which is another...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in January 2015. The main reason was for a Symposium that was held at the Encore on St. Kilda Beach. The Urban is a funky, young hotel with great service. The location is perfect with walking distance to everything in St Kilda and public transport just outside the door. Lovely breakfast cafe... More

We really debated whether to stay in Melbourne or at St. Kilda. With the tram it really made little difference unless you aren't the type to take public transport (then you may not be the type to stat in St Kilda either). I loved St. Kilda because it is an urban beach with lots of cool places to eat and... More

Very nice boutique hotel in a great location on St Kilda's busy Fitzroy St. We had a room on the second floor and the room was lovely as well as quiet for a great night's rest. We were greeted on arrival at reception and they had a plate of excellent pastries to take back to the room, one each, to... More

I stayed at this hotel whilst working on the Formula 1. Despite arriving quite late check-in was quick, and the staff were friendly too. My room was a good size, and the bed was comfortable. Thankfully my room was pretty quiet. Breakfast was cafe / bistro style, and very tasty too. The WiFi was pretty good. The location is great,... More
