Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Gold level
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.

We arrived with some trepidation after reading some other reviews of the hotel but have discovered how subjective some reviews are. We booked a standard balcony room overlooking the street and it is as we expected- slightly noisy from the traffic- but not enough to...More

Great location, lovely staff and our room was perfect. The art work in the bar, cafe, rooms and corridors was fabulous. The location was perfect and we hopped onto a tram across the road into the city. Dinner in the cafe was lovely too.More

As soon as we walked into the Tolarno Hotel could feel the welcoming vibe. The entrance is full of colour and wonderful art. The interesting and varied canvases, quirky lighting, and photographs make this the polar opposite to a bland and modern hotel. The staff...More
