Editorial review:

Tolarno was once the site of Georges Mora’s gallery Tolarno. The upscale restaurant downstairs is now named after his artist wife Mirka and displays her original paintings. Rooms upstairs aren’t quite as chic but have bright colors and are eclectically furnished, with comfortable beds and crisp white linen. Guests at the front of the building might be bothered by noise, but they have balconies, floorboards and large windows to make up for it.

Overview

Located in an exhibition area with restaurants, bars and a stadium, guests will see why Tolarno Hotel is admired by many tourists. Set within a 10-minute walking distance from Melbourne city center.

    We liked the location, the art work and the bed.

    They were doing renovations right outside our door during our stay. Someone was literally sanding the door jam while we were trying to sleep. And the renovations made the hotel look cheap. Also, the air-con was broken when the temp reached the high 30s during our stay.

    Comfort of the room and the amenities provided. Appealing decor throughout the building. Location - handy to everything.

    Bouncing our suitcases all the way up the stairs to Room 302 Question 3 in this Review doesn't make sense - strange selection of words!

    Location

    No hot water to have a shower and ridiculous size of the bathroom for the price of the room - no offer of a voucher for no hot water either

    Eclectic decor. 24 hour reception. Cheap secure parking arranged by the hotel close by. This is not a plush hotel but is comfortable and good value for money. Booked a room away from the road because of previous reviews but if I stayed there again I would take a front room as the street noise dies down around 10pm.

    We really werent unhappy with any feature.

  • Couple

    location of hotel was perfect for both beach and city. The bed was really comfortable. Room was very clean. Although balcony room is noisy due to it's street front location we loved the hustle and bustle and people watching. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Could do with more storage for clothing as we only had a narrow wardrobe for two and there was not drawers which the room was big enough to accommodate.

    Close proximity to spirit of Tasmania pier

    No onsite parking, no lift.

  • Couple

    Unclean, rooms were tiny! Promised 'city views' however I hardly call the second story looking towards shops on the other side of the road city views. Absolutley appauling. 3X cockroaches in the bathroom upon arrival. Unable to sit on balcony as too loud. &Amp; too add to injury, the room above us was heard, ie. Conversation & running from side to side!! For a weekend getaway, we stayed until 10pm then left. What a waste of my well earnt money!!!!

    tolarno hotel was excellent, great service from all areas, unfortuneatly did not get to eat at their restaurant as their are so many just outside the doorstep to choose from, will gladly stay again

    Helpful & friendly staff, a quirky sort of hotel, simple small rooms but with eberything you need, don't worry about no breakfast there are pleanty of excellent cafes nearby. Also lots of trams to CBD. Good value.

    Can't think of anything!

    I loved the art on display. The staff were helpful and nice.

    The shower was terrible. Could not adjust to a reasonable temperature.

  • Family with children

    Beautiful hotel with unique, inspiring atmosphere. Great for relaxing. Excellent location.

  • Group of friends
    3.2

    The location was a close walk to St Kilda beach & off a tram stop

    - They put one less bed in the room that agreed for & paid for & refused to budge & would only fix it for an extra $150 a night!!! - More cramped than the pictures. - Things were broken & not working all over the room. - Earlier checkout at 10am. - For an executive suite we were below ground level which caused our paying more to have cold shower water & constant loud walking on the above stairs.

  • Older travelers

    Nice staff. Well furnished and and outfitted. Nice artwork. The location was good.

    It was a little noisy at night. Parking was remote.
