Stayed here for business trip, hotel looks dodgy on the outside but it is actually quite nice inside. The room is very basic and comfortable and clean, however after I spotted a blood stain on my sheets I was turned off

Good value! Easy access and cheap parking! Check in was a pleasure however check out was a different story! Women didn't really didn't care about my stay or checking me out. Moved the pace of a snail as well. Housekeeping should also wait until I've checked out before trying to clean my room. No sooner had they knocked before they...

Stayed here for 3 nights and the service was pretty bad. The room itself (a family room) was fine. There were cobwebs on the windows but otherwise pretty clean. The issue I have is with the service. Firstly we received 1 free drink on a arrival for 3 people... Breakfast was supposed to be included in the rate, we were...

Not a fancy hotel, but clean, good service and great value for money. Very handy if you are catching the Spirit of Tasmanian, specially if doing a day sail. ... and good to be in a room where the window open. Hate being sealed in. For the price it is hard to beat and St Kilda is a great location...

Stayed for four nights during a classic Melbourne heatwave. Hotel rooms are a bit dated and family rooms lacked any kind of view. Staff were excellent and friendly. Bar was fantastic, although not overly busy on 3 of the 4 nights. Good location however Fitzroy St is a bit run down. Car park was difficult to navigate in a large...

Have stayed here numerous times over the years. Very clean, modern amenities, helpful staff. Awesome location. secure parking. Trams at door, short stroll to restaurant precinct and bay walk in St Kilda. Prices vary considerably from time to time. Have stayed elsewhere too because they are just too expensive at certain times.

Hotel of good quality and good location for a fair price. Rooms are quite modern and personnel are very friendly. Right next to the beach and very easy access to the city centre by tramway right in front of the hotel.

Rydges St Kilda is of typical Rydges style, cheap and no frills. Check in staff were helpful and process was simple as always. Getting to the rooms was an experience in Lift 1 which seriously struggled to make its way to level 4, The room itself was relatively clean and the bathroom was OK apart from the pathetic shower pressure...
