At last - a business apartment in Melbourne we love!
Review by Gail M, Australia (24-Feb-2014)

I used to stay at the Crown Promenade but hated that I couldn't open the windows. Having tried many, many other options I discovered Mint St Kilda a couple of years ago and love it. It's still very new, clean, tastefully decorated, nice decor, comfortable beds and a great café/bar/restaurant downstairs. Very friendly staff also. 
The only negative is the slowest internet in the world!
Tip: Front rooms are the best!

A change from staying in the city
Review by Dee H- Wildes Meadow, Australia (21-Feb-2014)

Our experience was overall positive - the staff were friendly & helpful, the restaurant/cafe excellent - the rooms were compact but adequate - the king beds were great - I was disappointed that it was a 15 minute tram ride from St Kilda itself, but the cost was very reasonable,
Tip: you should definitely try the restaurant!

Weekly visitor review
Review by Stephen W- Birkdale, Australia (21-Feb-2014)

I have stayed at Mint St Kilda almost every week for the past year.
Staff are very friendly and get to know you and are very helpful when you are trying to make last minute bookings and waiting on cancellations.
Rooms are fine and the beds are FANTASTIC. Always have a good nights sleep. 
The restaurant next door (Bakini), not part of the hotel, is excellent - super friendly staff, good quality food although it may be a little on the expensive side for some. There are good cafe on either side so plenty of choice for a cheaper breakfast. Fast food places across the road and up towards the city a couple of hundred meters are handy.
Gym is adequate. 
Good value for money except when they are full - trebling of prices!
The only reason I didn't rate higher on cleanness is that occasionally the toilet area smells of stale urine. I think this is caused by the use of semi porous tiles in the bathroom and cleaners who do not adequately clean the toilet area. I recommend that they use their nose to determine the level of cleaning needed. 
Smelly toilets are from a buildup not a one off.
Also, the basins in the bathrooms are too trendy for their own good - too small, too low, water splashes everywhere etc. Shower is average but adequate, aircon is good, TV fine.
Tip: Book ahead or pay more

Additional Questions:
• Please let us know of any Mint team member who provided exceptional service
  All the front counter staff are great
• Is there anything we can do to improve the quality of your next stay?
  Clean the toilet area better
Check the tuning on some of the TVs - at least 5 channels wouldn't work in my last room due to weak signal (including SBS)

We'll definitely return!
Review by Lesley G - Balga, Australia (19-Feb-2014)

We came to Melbourne recently to see Bruce Springsteen. Great concert and great accommodation. Clean, spacious and we had everything we needed in our room (an executive studio). Very convenient for public transport with trams close by to the CBD, St Kilda and Prahran. It is excellent value for money and I will definitely recommend it to friends and visit again.


Great location and very helpful staff
Review by Keith R- Australia (18-Feb-2014)

Great place to stay, also for a longer period. Ideal location on public transport into the city and a nice run through Albert Park to the bay side. Very helpful staff which answered all demands. Wifi was not particularly fast. 
Ideal for longer stay with the parking garage, perfect kitchen with dishwasher and laundry facilities.
Pity the view from the room was not great, looking out on the adjoining offices.
Additional Questions:
• Is there anything we can do to improve the quality of your next stay?
  A room with a nicer view :-)

Thank goodness for the MINT
Review by Scott L- Mount Martha, Australia (18-Feb-2014)

My wife and I alternated staying at the Mint whilst our son was an inpatient at the Alfred Hospital. The hotel was very clean, quiet, and gave us everything we needed and at a great price. We had previously stayed at the mint for a weekend getaway and will definitely return.

Great Location
Review by Meredith W- BATEMANS BAY, Australia (18-Feb-2014)

This hotel was in a great location. Easy to get to everything with a tram stop right near by. The room was nicely appointed, was clean and had comfy beds. The cafe in the foyer was good too. It was good value and I would definitely stay at Mint again.
Tip: Parking out the front of the hotel on St Kilda Road is free on weekends.

Peaceful and relaxing stay
Review by Merilyn McD - Strzelecki, Australia (17-Feb-2014)

I would recommend the accommodation to anyone as it is affordable, fresh and clean within tram ride to city. It is in beautiful Street with lots of interesting buildings and close to Albert park. The main reason being it is quiet and peaceful to sleep.
