We had breakfast @ the cafe downstairs (AUD$15 per head) and it was good. Although the variety was limited, due to the low traffic going in, the quantity was more than adequate and it provided us with a hearty meal to start the day. Like what others have mentioned, the rooms are dated, however, absolutely comfortable and decent. So if...

I stayed in the deluxe room and is new. Totally different from the picture I see. It is near to the beach and there is a 24 hours Mcdonald nearby. Staff are friendly. Check in and check out is a breeze. Would stay there again.

A very centrally situated property in the heart of St. Kilda with Acland St and the light rail to the city about 100 metres away. Staff are professional and friendly and the room spacious and clean. Only issue is traffic noise if you are in one of the front rooms facing Carlisle St.

I stayed in the matchbox as I had no intention of wasting my holiday time in the hotel beyond sleeping. Very well priced considering the location right across from Acland Street. Service was outstanding, room was very tidy and well equipped considering its diminutive size. The only downside was the bed had quite a strong lean and was fairly lumpy...

Big room (the four people one at least) , confortable and super service from the staff (professional and friendly) , fair breakfast, good price and excellent situation. The parking was included, a bit tight but fully usable.
