SO many good things about this hotel. Excellent location, rooms are very cozy and clean, the service at front desk is good, internet service is very fast, wireless throughout the hotel. You get to use an excellent gym and pool facilities on St Kilda beach, very very good. Toiletries were Aveda products which are excellent, rooms very bright and sunny. Breakfast was also part of the room and was very very good literally you have it at a cafe attached to the hotel.
Only not so good, lift (there is only one) is very very slow, but t the end of the day you get to your room. If you are planning on sleeping early on Fri, Sat you might be disturbed from the loud music from the Prince's hotel bar.
I just stayed in Australia in various states over a couple of week, certainly this hotel was real value for money.
Highly recommend this hotel if you want to be in St Kilda area. Right in front of trams.More
