My husband & I stayed for 2 nights in April. Warm welcome & complimentary upgrade was a wonderful start to a lovely weekend. The hotel is quirky, full of beautiful art & a refreshing change to the standard hotel. We stayed in a junior suite that had a massive balcony with a dining table & 2 sun beds. We had...

Greeted by friendly staff this charming boutique hotel didn't disappoint. The artworks scattered throughout the hotel were amazing. Room was clean and well presented. Only thing thought the bathroom was a bit on the small size. Got a free upgrade and a late check out which was appreciated. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location, you can...

Located on beautiful, tree lined St Kilda Road, opposite Albert Park, near the NGV and the Botanic Gardens, there are few better locations in Melbourne than this hotel. Coupled with this hotel's helpful staff and good amenities, this is one of Melbourne's best. Prices are moderate too. We'll be back.

Stayed here for one night in April and it was fantastic! The bed was so amazing, the views beautiful from our room and staff polite and friendly! It's a bit further from the st kilda foreshore but there's a tram stop nearby to get into the city. Thank you so much for the complimentary champagne for my partners birthday surprise...

Upon check-in, the lovely staff gave our three year old a canvas and paint set - which he loved and couldn't wait to use. What a welcome! The room was lovely, the bed very comfy, and my son loved the little card inviting him to jump on the bed. It's the little touches that count! There's also a fantastic park...

A little inaccessible from the main attractions. Room was smaller than expected. However, service was top-notch, and decoration was true to the art series hotels: tasteful. It was the best hotel bed that we've ever slept on!

I had to find a hotel quickly as my flight was canceled and was stuck here solo on Easter weekend. This place was PERFECT! Not only are the hotel and rooms EXCELLENT, each room comes with a kitchenette! I would call these an actual kitchen because it's a full size fridge and freezer, stove top, microwave, tea kettle, toaster, and...

Stayed here for 2 nights this weekend, and WOW. I am/was so impressed. This hotel is definitely deserving of its ranking, and probably even deserves a higher one. Everything was perfect. The beds are amazingly comfortable, and the rooms are incredibly well appointed. The bathrooms are also quite nice, but not the best I've used - but the shower was...

The hotel is great. Rooms quiet and comfortable. Although its fine for now they will soon need to refurbish. The staff is great and acimodating and food also good. It's best to pay directly for breakfast as there are two restaurants and you can choose. Location is terrific trams and easy access to the city.
