After booking a show at the Palias in St Kilda, we decided to stay rather than drive home after the show. Looked through one of the online sites and got a great deal at the Cosmo. Its location is great, almost across the road from the theatre and very close to Acland St eateries. We had a family room which happened to face onto Carlisle St. The room was clean, quite spacious and comfortable with a queen bed and two singles. Air con that worked well and quietly and a usable bathroom. The only downside was that it faced onto Carlisle St, the noise from the street (mostly trams and cars) died down eventually, but started again reasonably early in the morning. If you sleep anywhere, it won't be problem, but there are rooms at the rear of the building that may well be quieter. Staff were great and there is off street parking and wifi included. Would I say again, yes, but I'd try a rear room.

Room tip: Try a room away from the front for a quieter stay.

Hi Garry,
You made the right choice - we're the best place to stay if you're having a night at the Palais! As you mentioned, Carlisle Street can be a bit busy on the weekends, so our Acland Block apartments are a great option if you're a light sleeper.
Hope to see you again.

Offered a good rate but bathroom was quite dirty. Only surface clean and mould in corners. Went to Coles to purchase Glen 20 and wear thongs in shower! Sheets appeared clean but mattress was very old and quite uncomfortable. Curtain in room was ripped and would not close over entire window. Exposed wiring on skirting which had been left uncovered. Quite a noisy room with Trams going past at 5am and many people out late in the street were easily heard form room. Only good thing was the hot water was hot but then didn't really want to stay in shower too long because it was not clean.

Hi Lemon,
Not a great story. Sometimes what people think is 'mould' is actually the grout showing through because we scrub it so hard! We'll get Housekeeping to take a closer look. We will also see what can be done about the other issues you mentioned. Thanks for the feedback.

An excellent hotel experience. Great location close to Acland St, The Palais, and the beach. It was the staff who were the most impressive aspect of the hotel - efficient, professional, courteous, and totally welcoming. A wonderful place to stay!

We were in Melbourne for one night, attending a concert at the Palais Theatre. The hotel was within walking distance,as was all the shops and eateries on Ackland st. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and the room was very clean and comfortable. We had a very nice stay. The off st parking in the price is a real bonus. We will definitely be back when next in Melbourne. Thank you.
