Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The room was nothing like the photos, old, not clean and below par on maintenance eg, smoke detector on bench not in ceiling holder. I have spoken to and emailed manager with my concerns and I informed them I was posting a negative review, I hope they respond and can rectify the many issues. The reception staff were very professional and working hard to check everyone in and the location is great.

My daughter and her boyfriend had a lovely night out planned in St Kilda at the movies on the beach. (Live on outer edge of Melb) planning not to drink, then drive home after. On the way in they decided to book a room so they could relax and have a couple of drinks. Booked the room online all good. Said there was a security deposit (all good) although deposit didn’t come out when they made payment. Put down check in time as late 12.30 am. When they got there after a great night they were asked for security deposit, all good. They didn’t have enough money and weren’t allowed to pay by PayPal (even though room payment had gone through on PayPal no problems) they called me for credit card details but manager would not take details over the phone. So they paid for a room but had to sleep in the car out the front for a couple of hours before driving home. So I would say customer service was disgusting.

I was pleasantly surprised. Good sized room. Mine had a kitchenette and bath. It's in a lovely old character home, I kept wondering if it was haunted lol. The main downsides are the rather thin floors, I could hear the people above me talk and walk around. If you get a room by the road it's a bit noisy. Nothing that earplugs won't fix, but if you are a light sleeper, be aware of this. Also St Kilda beach is about a 13 minute walk down the road.

This is the second time for me at this hotel. There are many things that make it suitable, certainly for me. Firstly the location is good, close to St Kilda Junction and trams to the city and elsewhere. There is a bus that runs down Barkly St that will take you to St Kilda proper. Secondly, the rooms are good value, spacious enough, good modern bathrooms with plenty of hot water flow, heating (aircon), good wifi, and they are clean and quiet. They have a comfortable bed which provides good sleep. The only downside is the location does not have too much nearby in the way of places to eat, although the Crest Hotel next door does have a restaurant and coffee shop. There are no close places like a 7-11 to get drinks or snacks, the nearest is a 10 minute walk. The only other thing I can fault on this stay was the room was in need of some TLC with a few minor repairs needed. Other than that, this is a good priced hotel offering most of what you will need.

We took a room outside the main building. Was well equipped, cleaned and was perfectly cleaned every day. They have a gym and laundry service. Breakfast was not good and some of the staff only ok but still worth the money!

I normally stay at the Crest on Barkly which is next door, but when it is not available, we stay at Como Court. It is an old house converted to accomodation to suit the price conscious visitor. It is managed by the Crest; you check into the same reception staff and it is cleaned by the same people. You can use the facilities over available at the Crest. The rooms tend to be smaller, and the facilities not as modern but having stayed there twice in the last year, I have no complaints. It is clean, the shower is hot, the fridge cold and the price amazing. 5 days during the Australian Open for less than $400 Don't expect a view from your window is the only other comment to add. Didn't bother me.

I received a pleasant surprise on being shown to my room at this hotel. Located next door to the Crest Hotel, the rooms are a conversion of an old block of flats. The room was spacious, with a good bed, and a very spacious bathroom. The bathroom had been modernized but kept the old look to it. The room wasnt too noisy with the neighbours, and being at the back of the building was free of road noise. Located very near to St Kilda Junction, there is good access to trams to the city and suburbs, and a bus runs along Barkly St to take you to St Kilda centre. Its an easy walk to Fitzroy St and associated attractions, and not too far to walk all the way to St Kilda. The main hotel offers the restaurant for meal service. WiFi is available for free and the signal was good. All in all a surprising stay and one worth considering.

I booked a room with a "private bathroom". When taken to the room I was dismayed to learn the bathroom was not in the room. It was outside the room down the hall. It was "private" in the sense that only I would have access to it. I spoke to reception. The fellow there agreed that the hotel had a rather idiosyncratic understanding of the term "private bathroom." Other guests had complained but there was nothing he could do. I asked to speak to the manager who promptly appeared. I can't say enough good things about him. He was very polite and professional. He understood my dismay and found me a better room than the one I booked. My rating applies to the new room with a private bathroom as conventionally understood. It was clean, quiet, had a comfortable bed and excellent WiFi. I parked on the street rather than pay the extra fee to park in the hotel's garage.

I was originally going to award this accommodation a 5 star review because the accommodation standards so superb, the room so spacious, clean with everything on handy. The hotel is just 1 minute walk for tram routes 3, 3a and 67 and 5 minutes walk for tram route 96. The outstanding Customer Service with great skills enabled my 'missing' luggage to have been recovered, what happened was that the 'SkyBus' driver dropped a wrong luggage and then drove off, so I took wrong luggage with me to the hotel, after the check-in process completed, the hotel agreed to contact SkyBus by telephone on an urgency basis (because the SkyBus did not respond to my urgent Twitter messages and that I am unable to use telephones due to the profound hearing loss). Following this, SkyBus swapped luggages at the hotel so a 'missing' luggage was re-united with me! However, the day before my check-out (going back by SkyBus to the airport), I had an enquiry and SkyBus was only able to be contacted by telephone, a different receptionist was not helpful by merely conveying messages from the SkyBus telling me to e-mail enquiry to the SkyBus's general e-mail address. Then the receptionist apparently crossed its boundary and neutrality by effectively representing SkyBus placing me at a disadvantage as I had been unable to contact SkyBus independently, unless SkyBus was able to respond by e-mails without delays. The night before checking-out, I was at the reception on settling the bill (due to a very early start) but no one was at the reception, my friend was looking around for a short while and managed to locate the hotel representative so he attended to this. The day on my 'check-out', again no-one at the reception (otherwise I could have asked where the SkyBus bus stop was) so there was very little time left for the wait so I went into Melbourne by tram and then headed Southern Cross station for SkyBus to the airport. In light of this, I am now awarding this accommodation a 3 star with friendly tip for the receptionist to have a more empathetic approach with their customers, putting customer needs first and to ensure that at least one receptionist remain at the reception at all times for dealing with on-the-spot enquiries. Anyway I will definitely come back!

This establishment was in a great location, in a very safe area, close to where we had to be. An older style building and our apartment was on the ground floor. The bathroom was large with a great hot shower over the bath. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Dear RussCanberra, It is pleasing to hear that the apartment met your needs, they are quite spacious and the art deco decor is reflective of the St Kilda area. We do find that most of our guests love the central location, being only 15 minutes walk to the beach or 15 minutes on a tram to the city. Our team do pride themselves on their friendly demeanor and are always eager to help, we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.
