I really liked most things about this hotel - it's affordable, spacious, has free parking and the staff are excellent. By far the best value in St Kilda. I struggled with how to rate this hotel - it's great, but travellers should be aware that it's location can have some drawbacks.
We stayed in room A202, a 2 bedroom apartment, and there was lots of room for our family, including my baby daughter. The king size bed was wonderful (although the second bedroom is a little stuffy) and the kitchen facilities were appreciated. The room was clean and I loved the louvred windows and view. The free wifi was fast, and we had no connection problems (possibly a first in hotel history?)
It's very noisy though - 2 of the 3 nights we stayed there were parties in adjacent rooms and balconies and we didn't get much sleep. Staff were helpful when we complained, but the silence was often short lived. The chairs on the balcony walkways seem to encourage these late night sessions.
Maybe it's too much to expect quiet in an area like St Kilda - I love the place, but as a new mum, I don't have the energy for it any more.
