    The Prince is a unique hotel because of its position and vibe. It is a genuine 'boutique' hotel, and offers a more home like experience than a large chain hotel of similar standard. There is something undeniably 'cool' about the Prince, reflected in the staff, the food, the rooms and the decor.

    Noise can still be an issue at the Prince, but it goes with the territory.

    Superb

    Excellent staff, really good service, fantastic location and not too precious or pretentious.

    It was a bit noisy, but I think that was because there was a wedding on at the same time as we were there, nothing major though.

    Great food, great location, luxurious rooms, thanks for the upgrade on arrival

    Fabulous

    Hotel is slick and funky

    The noise from the night club until 2am on Monday night/Tues morning which kept me wide awake. On a business trip, like I was, with a 6am telecon and a full day of work ahead, this is not ok and such a shame because the hotel is awesome otherwise.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location.

    Rooms at the front get extreme noise from the pub. We had the worst night we have ever experienced (music til 5:30!)Request a back room.Back rooms do not get the noise from the pub.

    Superb

    The process was easy, food from Circa was amazing

    We had a reservation at the circa for 8.30, and it wasn't until I went to speak to the hostess at 9.30 that we got seated - she forgot about us. Also, we ordered the chocolate fondue for desert and it was cold (which is obviously not how you expect a fondue)

    Very good

    Functional, clean, good breakfast included, good service, good location for trams to city, close by vast choice of restaurants.

    Depending on room position, could be bloody noisy with pub music and street traffic just below. Rooms facing inside very quiet.

    Superb

    Nice room, with a very spacious bathroom. Great breakfast a la carte, includes in the price, with the car park as well. Idealy located in St Kilda, and very close of the beach.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The rooms were clean and modern with a rustic feel and have all required amenities. Pay for the upgrade to a view & bath if these are important to you.

    Book the spa early. The pool is not heated (and not really for general public use which was odd). Although the staff were extremely helpful when approached, service was often very slow. More attention required

  • 8.4
    Superb

    The location, the friendly staff and the public bars on street level.

    The light switches in the room were hard to operate. The breakfast menu was too restrictive - I would have enjoyed being able to have several cups of coffee with just a selection of eggs, toast etc.- like the breakfast buffets in German hotels - instead of an attempt at gourmet style dining (first thing in the morning I am thirsty rather than hungry).

    Superb

    The overall experience was excellent-breakfast was superb. Dined in one evening and food/wine exceeded our expectations. The hotel staff should be singled out for special mention as they were exceptional.

    Fabulous

    The location is very convenient next to a tram station and walking distance to many bars and restaurants.

    The breakfast was very inconsistent from one day to the next one. They started building works at 7am and that ended our night.
