“great base to explore St Kilda and Melbourne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Stayed at the Cosmopolitan for a long weekend and couldn't fault it. The position is fantastic - walk to the beach and all St Kilda has to offer, or hop on a tram to explore other areas of Melbourne - easy! The rooms were quite spacious and clean, being well serviced daily. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We will be back next year and would highly recommend it for everyone.

Dear Tami255097

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and for your comments regarding our staff and service. I will certainly pass this on to the entire team. I can see you were able to take full advantage of what St Kilda has to offer and explored more of Melbourne using the tram system which is great to see!

I greatly look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel on your next trip to Melbourne.

Warmest regards

Just spent three nights at the Cosmo with my sister. We are both mums with kids and wanted a retreat away from it all. The Cosmo offered us a great value room with super comfortable beds and fluffy white towels. The room was spacious and we had everything we needed including windows that open for fresh air. The back packers place over the road was a little noisy but only what you expect in a popular part of the city at the weekend. We didn't find it a problem. I might if I lived there I suppose. The hotel is a two minute walk to bustling Acland street with all the cafes, cake shops and clothes shops a girl could want! Including great op shops for those on a budget. Loved the hotel. Beds made for us everyday ... heaven! Friendly, professional helpful staff. We will be back next year...and the one after that....I do a lot of research before I book a hotel and have travelled a lot. The Cosmopolitan ticked all the boxes. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask the staff if you have any special requests. I'm sure they will do all they can to help.

Spent a long weekend in Melbourne and the hotel was a great choice. The city is a short tram ride away and there is great food within 5 minutes (walking). The hotel is looking a little tired around the edges but the staff are welcoming and the rooms clean. If you are a light sleeper, request a room at the back of the complex as the Base Backpackers gets pretty loud Friday and Saturday night.

Dear Marisa072

Thank you for staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel St Kilda.

Our guests comfort, is really important to us and so is your feedback, so thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. We are always looking at ways to improve our overall offering, and your comments have been noted and will be taken into consideration, for future hotel improvements.

We are sorry to hear that external noise disturbed your sleep. The hotel is located on a corner property in the heart of St Kilda, so whilst you cannot beat the central location, there can be some noise experienced from the vibrant bustling neighbourhood. We do however have several types of accommodation spread across the complex so next time we can tailor a room more suitable to your specific needs.

We greatly look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Warmest regards

Angelica at the front desk was a beautiful and helpful assistant. We stayed there for 5 nights and our room was up graded on arrival. It was a fantastic room and close to everything.We love Melbourne and will stay again.
