This is a reasonably priced hotel in a great location for the beach, Luna Park and the trams to the city. There are, however, many prostitutes and crack heads outside the hotel, so it's card key access after 10pm. The rooms don't look like they do on line, but they have everything that I needed. Fridge, tea making, hair dryer,...

We booked for location and price and ended up at this excellent hotel. Service has been spot on. Room is large, light, airy, quiet and offers a spa bath too. It is also very clean. Having stayed for five nights the standard has remained the same. There is quirky murals on the walls not only in our room but around...

The room was big and comfortable. A little bit of noise from the street in the mornings. Very nice daily environmental friendly deal to get restaurant discount for canceling towels laundry. A few nice restaurants and bars in surrounding area. Beds a little too soft.

Stayed in the hotel for just one night, staff are very pleasant and it's a great location. The hotel itself is quite tired though, the first room we walked in had frayed carpet and looked quite rundown. Spoke to reception and they moved us to a much nicer room. Clean, comfortable and free access to the St Kilda Sea Baths....

Pleasant stay, nice staff just really tired and frayed around the edges. It's the rooms really, they're just dated and needing a revamp if you are going to pay city rates, there's plenty better. Keep away from the lift as the stirs are also located there and the doors slam.

Hello Simon Thanks for staying with us, I'm sorry to hear that you felt our room decor is dated. Whilst the hotel is relatively new (having been built in the early 2000's) we do have a constant maintenance program to maintain our room standards and this year we are replacing some furniture and lighting to continue improving the look and...

The hotel is considered clean and tidy, both in the bedroom and the bathroom and the toiletries are quite complete except tooth brush and tooth paste were missing and though there was a pen provided but without paper !
