Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 2 nights - comfortable room, great location close to many cafes, tram stop outside, only issue I had was the shower, it was slippery to the point of feeling very unsafe, however I used a bath towel to stand on.

We stayed here for a two week stay whilst visiting our daughter. Our room overlooked the beach and was a good size, everything we needed for our stay, tea, coffee, milk was refilled each day. It was a nice five to ten minute walk to bars, coffee shops and eating places, the tram stop was just across the road which...

I usually stay more in town when visiting Melbourne but I was coming in mid-Feb when temperatures can be as high as 45C, and from experience knowing the sea breezes help staying cool chose to stay at Novotel St Kilda. I was there five nights and had a very pleasant stay. The staff were all without exception very friendly and...

Descent location, you cross the street and you will reach the beach. 10/20 minutes walk to where to coffee shops and bars are. Chilled area, not much things to do around, but the essentials are there.

We booked into the Novotel for four days. It is in a great position on The Espanade and walking distance to Acland Street, which is a must visit, Luna Park, The Palace Theatre and the St. Kilda pier. We booked a standard room, it did overlook the bay which was nice. The room is the smallest we have stayed in...

Stayed here the night before going on a cruise. This is an old establishment which could probably do with a complete makeover, in saying though my room was clean, the staff were excellent and meals were good. Will stay here again.
