“Great hotel in funky area”
Reviewed November 8, 2007

They get the basics right - friendly and very helpful staff, lovely spacious room and large comfy bed. In addition, breakfasts were stunning, bathroom was modern and very clean and the hotel itself was funky and inviting.

St Kilda is a great place to stay and its so easy to get to the city and other areas on the trams.

For food in St Kilda, check out Las Chicas for breakfast (203 Carlisle Street, next to Balaclava Train Station) and Cicciolinas for coffee, lunch, dinner and drinks at 130 Acland St (no bookings).

  • Liked — The spacious room and modern bathroom
  • Disliked — Noisy neighbouring air conditionner (not really something the hotel can do much about though!)
  • Stayed October 2007, traveled on business
