A family stay at the Cosmopolitan made our trip to Melbourne ever so easy. The Cosmopolitan was central to where we needed to be in St Kilda. The staff were friendly and helpful, our room was clean and comfortable (although we couldn't find any cleaning items after my daughter brought home half the beach with her). Will stay here again...

This was our second stay at the Cosmopolitan. The staff are friendly and helpful, the room is great value for money and the location to all things St.Kilda is fabulous. Trams are easily accessible and Acland St with its eateries and shopping is only a short walk away. Another bonus is onsite parking. We will definitely be back.

The Cosmo is the best place to stay in Melbourne. Close to transport and fantastic restaurants. The FREE parking is an excellent bonus. The hotel is very comfortable and for the most part, quiet. We would highly recommend it to everyone.
