The lady at the front desk was totally lovely for check in and check out very friendly and helpful. But as far as the room it had an in closed balcony with only a view straight up to the sky just like a large skylight, the shower kept going from warm to cool and came out of the wall very...

An excellent hotel in a good location . Great staff and good rooms- breakfast ok but a bit limited. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend to others. Shops and restaurants/ bars etc all close by.

The Reception staff were a credit to the Hotel. At all times they were extremely professional and courteous. The bed was comfortable and we all slept well even though the Hotel is situated in central St Kilda.

The Cosmo is situated very close to many great cafes & restaurants, excellent tourist locations. Rooms are great with kitchenettes in some rooms & a bath to soak in after a hard days work. My last trip was for business but I have stayed there with my daughter & grandchildren, they just love it, close to the beach & yummy...

I guess I expected more! The reception is light, bright and modern with efficient service, the rooms look great on the surface but look a little closer and you are let down - cheapo curtains with holes in the black outs, filthy windows and, if your room faces Carlisle St, you get pedestrian and road/tram noise all night. The bathroom...

Very comfortable room, reasonalby priced. The staff was very proactive in recommending places to eat and see, even lending us Moki cards to use the tram. We only had to top off the cards before returning them. We had a delightful stay there prior to heading off for Tasmania.

What a disappointment. This hotel is old and run down and very shabby. There is nothing ‘boutique’ about it. It is much more akin to a 1970’s Motel, than a hotel. The outdoor corridors that lead to your room are so run down, dark and dingy. Walking to our room for the first time was making me VERY nervous, as...

The Cosmopolitan Hotel is in an excellent location just off the vibrant and bustling Acland Street in St Kilda. The rooms are reasonably spacious, with TV, kitchenette, fridge, water, tea & coffee provided. There also appeared to be a reasonable range of cooking utensils should you prefer to do self catering. Toiletries in the bathroom also provided as well as...

We have stayed here several times and always been impressed. It is an excellant location for walking to the Acland St shops and restaurants, the St. Kilda beach foreshore, Luna Park and the tram stop to get into the city. We always book the Terrace Apartment room and this time there were a few disappointments. The lowest Terrace Apartment (A101)...

We enjoyed our stay. It was really close to everything that we wanted to do. The tram was at the front of the hotel. Only a block from Luna Park and the beach. Room was very practically laid out and had everything we needed.
