          I have spend 1 week in Melbourne, the hotel is clean and staff is really nice and helpful. Even if the hotel is located one of the popular street in St Kilda, that was not noisy for me during the nights spent there (including Sunday and Friday night, not Saturday). Breakfast is truly amazing with lots of choices and the coffee latte is delicious. I will stay here again during my next visit in Melbourne.

          Room was a great size for the price - cannot beat the location! Security could be better - my partner needed a key for our room & wasn't even asked for ID - they just recoded him a key to the room number he said - it wasn't the same person that checked us in. Otherwise everything was fantastic!

          The location of this hotel is excellent, the parking good value and the room of a very good standard. This is now our 'go to place' if we are staying in St Kilda to catch up with our friends who live locally. Great position straight onto Fitzroy Street and a two minute tram ride to Ackland Street. Definitely recommend it!

          close to restaurants/shops/tram/beach

          stayed overnight on fri 28th december. check in was excellent, very professional and quick. hotel room was modern and bright. the beds were divine, the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. smallish room (we stayed in a superior queen room) but enough to put a suitcase and bags in it without tripping over everything. had all the mod cons you would expect from a 4 star hotel. the toiletries were exceptional and the bathroom was quite big and spacious. the only downfalls of the room which i find annoying in any hotel is having the plasma tv on a bracket from the roof as the only comfortable way to watch tv is to lie on the bed because if you are sitting you have to crank your head up to the roof. also, having a shower over a bath, i am not a big fan for. an open cupboard next to the sink would be great as the long glass bench did not seem strong enough to hold our toiletries which we had to put on the bathroom floor instead. the gym is quite small but has the necessary equipment for a good workout. the front restaurant/coffee shop we did not dine in except for grabbing a coffee which was excellent. all in all, i would stay at this hotel again for its location which is exceptional.

          Central St Kilda Bargain Location”

          The saying, 'You get what you paid for,' applies in this instance. There is a gym upstairs and a deck outside it, but we didn't use the facilities. On the first floor, looking out the window all you can see is the adjoining building. The room is a reasonable size and the bed was king sized. It's the proximity to everything that make this place stand out. There is a great bar/eatery on the ground floor and in the morning the cafe opposite is very reasonably priced. It's compact but clean. Staff are accommodating. I forgot something in the room after checking out and when I came back someone in the reception went up and got it for me. There were wine glasses in the room. Free wifi but a limited range of TV viewing. It really did suit us for an overnight stay.

          Fitzroy Street”

          Great location for St Kilda and the Pilais Theatre. Fitzroy Street is eclectic and Rydges is close to a couple of amazing bars and just around the corner in Acland street was the most delicious Chinese Restaurant owned by the Lau Family. The bar that served the best cocktails in Melbourne was just next door and behind a facade that gave the impression of a construction site but when you ventured in behind this wall you enter a cellar of the best presence and service...a most at St Kilda. The Rydges cafe had great coffee and service. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We could not fault this facility and will return again.

          Not so great if you need to park”

          The hotel itself was what you would expect from a Rydges so no surprises there. What did surprise me was the $30/night parking which was a necessity in this area given the amount of crazies getting about outside. A little transparency here would have given us the option to compare prices more accurately. Rooms were great accept for the noise of anyone in the hallway echoing throughout the building.

          Location, Clean bathroom, Clean sheets

          Not a bad stay, though quite a bit of noise - some from the bar/restaurant next door, and some through the paper thin walls when the people in the room next to ours got in at 5am. I think maybe they were also smoking in their room, though this is not the hotel's fault, and a reminder was placed under the door of our room as a reminder that it is a non-smoking hotel. All-in-all, for one night, it's not a bad choice, I'd probably stay there again. I did assume that a twin share room would be two double+ beds, rather than singles, but this may well have been my own mistake!

          St Kilda is a nightlife spot in Melbourne and this place is gay friendly, not that there is anything wrong with that. Staff are great and made no issue of my request for room with firmer bed. Is boutique so has the feel of being owner-operated being quite rare these days. I plucked a good deal on Agoda, so was good value for money. They organised shuttle back to airport which was awesome deal at $20 door-to-door. And James make a very nice hot chocolate. I will be back.
