We have just come back from another relaxing stay at this great hotel. This time we were in a Cosmo deluxe room which is spacious and comfortable. This is our 4th or 5th time staying at the Cosmopolitan and it never disappoints. The room - clean, roomy, kingsize really comfortable bed, soft sheets, great pillows. The staff - helpful and friendly. We decided to extend our stay by a night and this was handled with the usual efficiency. This hotel has become our home away from home when we visit Melbourne.

We were very happy with our choice of accommodation. It came on the recommendation of a local and didn't disappoint. It was in great walking distance of restaurants and cafes, The Esplanade, St Kilda Pier, Palais Theatre, St Kilda Community Gardens and Luna Park. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. Our accom included a buffet breakfast for both mornings however as were were leaving early one of the mornings the staff allowed us to 'brown bag' some food to keep in our fridge in the room for the next day for breakfast. The rooms were clean and quiet and the bedding was very comfortable. We will defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 116 on the first floor and it was lovely and quiet. We could take the stairs easil...

These guys know great customer service. Great location. Very genuine staff. Lost a piece of jewellery when we did a room upgrade. The cleaning staff had recovered and reception returned to us immediately after they received it. Looking forward to going back to stay there in the very near future 100%

Room Tip: Upgrading to the Deluxe room for a little bit more is so worth it! NO REGRETS

Even though Cosmo is in the heart of St Kilda, the hotel failed to impress me. The hotel staff were friendly and the room was clean and large. I love the bedding and was most comfy to rest on.

I like that the location is central enough and near to beach which makes travelling around a breeze.

Many back alleys which are dark which leads back to hotel so those travelling with young kids or ladies might just want to be more careful.

Dear Eunicelim82,

I am sorry to hear your stay was not what you expected.

I am however delighted to hear you were impressed with your room, our location, the comfy bed and our friendly hotel staff – thank you for mentioning it.

For the benefit of our other readers our unique hotel layout means the hotel is stretched across three wings, and there are ample security arrangements like secure key entry to hotel after hours.

We hope to welcome you back again in the future!

Warmest regards,
Hayley Williams.

This hotel has the most welcoming, friendly and helpful staff who added to our fantastic stay at this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We were able to check in early and leave our car at no extra cost to catch a tram into the city for a matinee show. Breakfast was lovely in the cafe where once again the staff were attentive and friendly.The eggs were cooked to perfection! It is in a central location within a 5 minute walk from the beach,Luna park, the Sunday market and restaurants. I will definitely stay here again!!
