Have been frequenting this hotel a number of times and I think it's time to move on. The rooms are old and tired. One wall in my room appeared to have had a patch up with nothing done about painting over the work. Lamp didn't work in the room. Went for breakfast and no one seemed interested as I had... More

Stayed two nights. Staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Breakfast at the cafe was well priced and tasty. Location wise it was very handy. Close to public transport, lovely choices of restaurants and near the beach. The room was small, and near the lift so it was noisy and I could hear the comings and goings. The... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old and were presently surprised. The beds were very comfortable and the staff very friendly. We found their breakfast scrumptious and I loved the vibe of the bar Mavis Browne's. The mini bar was wonderful and offered unique items such as a beach ball, pick up sticks and wooden dominos....

I took advantage of a special offer - combined with Rydges membership discount an excellent price. The staff are very friendly & eager to help. The hotel is certainly quirky but room size & facilities perfect for singles & couples. The vouchers offered for skipping housekeeping enabled us to try a lovely breakfast. Location is perfect with a tram stop... More

The location of this hotel is great, it is close to most things that are within walking distance. It is easily accessible by public transport and has an array of restaurants right on the door step. The rooms are large and clean and the staff very friendly. Now here's the down side; the room had a door through to another... More

The rooms are quite big and the whole hotel is modern and stylish. The location is great as there are a lot of restaurants in the same street, the beach is only 5 minutes walk away and more restaurants and stores about 15 minutes walk or 2 stations with the tram. (Tram stop in front of the hotel.) We struggled... More

I stayed here a year earlier when it was called Hotel Urban and loved it then. Now it’s been rebranded as a Rydges it’s actually even better. There’s free wi-fi now – unlike before - which is great. The rooms are spacious, modern, clean and well appointed. The only gripe is the lack of decent TV channels in room but... More

Rydges St Kilda, is hidden from the streets, (but does have a large neon sign) but once you get to reception the greeting is very welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good beds, modern TV and the hotel was quiet. The location of the hotel is excellent and you can jump on a tram and head to Melbourne... More

the location of this hotel is perfectly central in St Kilda. Our bed was lovely and comfortable although you could feel the seam in the centre where they join the two beds, the pillows were so good that my husband wanted me to find out where to buy them. The room was lovely and clean, quite small but it had... More

ice room, clean bathroom with spa, roomy bedroom with comfy bed and only one armchair not two. We stayed 2 nights and we put out our 'make up room' sign after the first night, however no-one serviced our room. I mentioned this when checking out they gave us a $10 discount as this is a an optional 'green service' service... More
