I spent 4 days in this hotel for business purposes and although the hotel was nice (clean room and friendly staff), my room was too noisy at night: there was loud music coming from a nearby restaurant that did not help to have a good rest.

We stayed here on our return from the Phillip Island Classic bike races. We usually choose to stay at St. Kilda rather than in the CBD as we enjoy the 'vibe'. This was our first time at this particular hotel and we would return. The reception staff are friendly and informative and restaurants, bars and beach are only a short... More

I spent 2 weeks in this hotel when starting a new job, and was in Melbourne for training. It is obviously an older hotel and a bit basic, but had been renovated recently, so all was good in the room including the bed comfortable bed.

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
