Once an art gallery, cafe and private residence of flamboyant Melbourne artist Mirka Mora and her husband Georges, the Tolarno Hotel has always been a creative space in St Kilda. The tradition continues at Tolarno Hotel. In a salute to the charismatic Mirka, the hotel’s walls and halls are hung with striking artworks by emerging and accomplished artists, 150+ works in total including a number of Mirka’s – guest’s often comment that it’s like staying in an art gallery. Today our 4 star hotel awards 3 major student art prizes via the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), Monash University and Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and the yearly winners are exhibited in the hotel foyer for 12 months. Many of the artworks in guest rooms are prize-winning student paintings; the remainder are works by prominant local artists. Combine these striking surrounds with our friendly service, well-appointed rooms and suites and location in the heart of St Kilda’s dining and entertainment precinct and you have a stay like no other. With trams just a 30-second walk from our front door offering easy access to Melbourne’s CBD attractions, shopping, restaurants, events and business precinct, you’re connected to everything the city has to offer.

Good location in St Kilda, very helpful staff. One of the most unusual and interesting hotels I have ever stayed in, not so much for the room (comfortable and adequate for our needs), but history and art.

As always Managers & Staff, very Friendly. Luv all the Artwork throughout the Hotel. Room was Neat, Tidy & Clean. I had a Balcony with the Room, overlooking Fitzroy Street. Enjoyed that because there were Bands playing in the Streets. Also, you receive a Car Park Voucher to cover your stay with them. Not far from Hotel, just around the Corner. Terrific Location for everything. Walking distance to Beach, Nightclubs, Restaurants & other things of Interest. Most definitely will be staying there again whenever the next time I am down that way.

Very pleasant overall experience. Arrived late night with no problem at all doing the contactless check-in. Hall, corridors and the room were decorated with pieces of art. Rooms are big, clean and very well equiped. The stuff was friendly and helpfull to point out places of interest at st kilda close to the hotel. Location is also perfect to take the public transport and head Melbourne cbd. Very Recomended

Tolarno hotel is well located venue with easy access to St Kildas restaurants and to the port and trams. The rooms are well equipped with coffee and tea and a microwave. The shower is great and the rooms are quiet for such a central location. The staff are friendly and can help with late check-in. A must place to go to stay at while in Melbourne.
