Stayed here overnight to avoid getting a cab home after a business function. Paid $117 (incl breakfast) via the hotel website. Pays to check - wotif and hotel club also had the same rate, but you will incur booking fees. Parking is $15 extra (free parking on street from 6pm - 8am, parking inspectors are very strict on this street - if you are likely to sleep in, invest in the hotel parking). Internet access is extra too - didn't use so can't comment on it's speed.
Good location. Trams outside on St Kilda Road. Lots of taxis going past too. 10-15 minutes walk to Fitzroy St, St Kilda. Approx 5 min taxi to city (if no traffic), 10min by tram. One small block to Albert Park Lake. 10-15 min walk to Chapel St. Not many convenience stores in immediate proximity. Belgian Beer Cafe is across the road.
Check in / check out was efficient and professional. Checkin counter was very high though! Charming period style exterior, modernly decorated in a style sympathetic to the heritage of the building. The elevator, although modern, was very dark. So were the poky hallways leading to the rooms. Quite an interesting set up, every two rooms also had an external door.
Room was very good size, I was in a standard room. Walking in, good size caesarstone kitchen style bench on the left (with toaster, fridge etc) to throw your handbag/newspapers etc on to. On the right, the double mirrored wardrobes (with room safe). Separate bathroom - sparsely decorated, not much bench space to place toothbrush, makeup etc. Some small slots in the wall - but ineffectual. Small hand basin, toilet and large walk in shower with glass screen. All this was very clean and modern. Toiletries didn't look that great in quality. Bedroom - had a queen bed - linen was clean and of good quality. There is a small slim writing/ lcd tv desk opposite the bed - would have been annoyed if I was staying here for a longer business trip. Lighting in the room was good. I got a room with a balcony, facing the roof tiles of the original period style house. Not much of a view - but it was quiet.
Could have done with a room service menu! Tried the free breakfast - very simple - cereals, yogurt, toast, fruit etc. I think they also have a more extensive paid a la carte menu which looked ok too.
I didn't spend much time in the room, but appreciated that it was clean, modern and a comfortable place to spend the night at a great rate.
