“Great location, great accommodation”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stay here every time we come down to Melbourne for the footy. Great location very close to lots of delicious coffee shops as well as Luna Park. Room are clean and roomy. Great for couples and families alike. Love the comfortable king size bed! Can get a little noisy on the street on weekends but no real bother. Free carpark is a bonus.
DO recommend. Back there this weekend.

A big surprise to find this boutique hotel in the best location in St Kilda. Acland street on the corner. king beds which a lot of bigger hotel don't offer, very clean room & bathroom. Car park is also very convenient. We did not have a problem with noise, we stayed on Fri & Sat nights. Staff were excellent. I can't fault this hotel, great price for what you get.

Arrived at the front desk & was welcomed by a young lady with who could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Our rooms were large , clean & a very comfortable king bed. Noise was not a problem as we faced a car park at the back of the hotel, but our friends had a room facing the street & had no noise problem & we stayed there on a Saturday night. Breakfast was excellent served by the same young lady we had @ the FD, still smiling & wanting to know how our night out had gone. Car park can be a bit tight if they are busy but overall a fantastic stay, great value, great location, great staff & we will be back.

Myself husband and daughter stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, the staff were very nice and the place was very clean. Breakfast was great and the location was close to beach and Luna park. Free parking was also a great help. Even though the outside of the rooms look dated the inside of room was good,clean and beds were comfy. Thank you again for the friendliness of all your staff.

I have been staying here while in Melbourne for many years & am happy that quality, comfort & value have remained consistent. Great location just a few metres from Acland Street and trams to the city, free secure parking, spotlessly clean rooms and staff are always friendly & helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear that face the car park are quieter. Deals that include breakfast are great as buff...

Would stay here again but only with my choice of room, the Deluxe Carlisle St facing room was acceptable but not being able to get to sleep until 2.00am due to extreme noise from Backpackers accommodation opposite was unacceptable, if management were fair dinkum they would take this up with the venue or the Police if necessary, the staff were very polite and easy to get on with. For the money I would have given this 5 stars but due to the noise I can only give it 3

Dear CJC275,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback from your recent stay at the Cosmopolitan.

I am sorry to hear that the property across the road disturbed you so much. We are aware that some nights the backpackers can be noisy and we are in regular contact with them regarding noise levels.
Next time you stay I would suggest a Studio room, which is situated towards the back of the property or the Deluxe Terrace which is away from Carlisle st.

I am glad you found us great value for money and found the staff friendly and helpful.

We look forward in welcoming you back to the Cosmopolitan.

Warmest regards,
Hayley.
