Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms with a unique atmosphere.

Guests overwhelmingly loved the hotel's unique and quirky atmosphere, frequently citing it as the highlight of their stay. The colorful décor and great art were said to be a welcome change from typical chain hotels, and reviews stated that the rooms were comfortable and well-equipped.

Located near businesses, the beach, and downtown.

The hotel is a stone's throw from the many bars, restaurants, theatres, and art galleries that St. Kilda is known for. Visitors added that the beach is a short walk away, and the tram stop in front of the building gives easy access to downtown Melbourne.

Staff are welcoming and professional.

Travellers reported that the hotel employees are warm, welcoming, and helpful with things such as parking and booking arrangements. The cleaning staff was also complimented on their diligence.

Negative Reviews

Multiple floors with no lift access.

The hotel building consists of three floors with no lift, which a number of guests found to be a nuisance. Travellers with heavy luggage or those with mobility issues are recommended to request accommodations on the ground floor if possible.

Some rooms are rather cramped.

The small rooms were reported to be considerably cramped with a questionable furniture layout. Visitors stated that these accommodations are smaller than they appear in pictures and are really only ideal for one person. Couples and larger groups should plan to book the larger rooms.

The neighbourhood is not for everyone.

While the hotel is close to many local businesses, the immediate area did not please everyone. Many reviewers noted that the building is next to a homeless shelter and a run-down hotel that is notorious for attracting a rough crowd, causing guests to feel unsafe at night.
