Very interesting experience, stayed at the basement room, huge room with art in every corner of the hotel
Location was amazing, the train was right in front of our hotel, walks to the beach and direct shuttle train right to city centre
We checked out this morning after a 3 night stay. Room was in basement - stuffy and musty smelling. Toilet was leaking water all over bathroom floor. Room was not cleaned for the entire 3 nights - even after reporting this to reception staff. After...More
Considering this is a 4 star hotel I had an expectation for the hotel to be of average quality, at a minimum. Unfortunately upon arrival we had to walk down stairs through the pungent smell of bins right outside the open stairwell window to our...More
Have chosen this hotel for parents based on bookingcom reviews and pictures, booked directly via phone. Expectations was to get average, clean and simple hotel room. I can not express how shocked my parents were to get almost windowless room (either paid for more bigger...More
I love staying at Tolarno each year. The ambience is super St Kilda Melbourne. The star are lovely, and the rooms, especially with balcony, are homely, warm and funky welcoming. I always feel like I have come home. I recommend a room with a balcony...More

Once an art gallery, cafe and private residence of flamboyant Melbourne artist Mirka Mora and her husband Georges, the Tolarno Hotel has always been a creative space in St Kilda. The tradition continues at Tolarno …MoreHotel. In a salute to the charismatic Mirka, the hotel’s walls and halls are hung with striking artworks by emerging and accomplished artists, 150+ works in total including a number of Mirka’s – guest’s often comment that it’s like staying in an art gallery. Today our 4 star hotel awards 3 major student art prizes via the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), Monash University and Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and the yearly winners are exhibited in the hotel foyer for 12 months. Many of the artworks in guest rooms are prize-winning student paintings; the remainder are works by prominant local artists. Combine these striking surrounds with our friendly service, well-appointed rooms and suites and location in the heart of St Kilda’s dining and entertainment precinct and you have a stay like no other. With trams just a 30-second walk from our front door offering easy access to Melbourne’s CBD attractions, shopping, restaurants, events and business precinct, you’re connected to everything the city has to offer.

Thank you for your query. We do have a website. I am unable to place it on this message but if you google us it should come up. We have twin rooms available for the dates you are after; in either a superior mansion or a balcony. The car park we use (about 180 metres from the hotel) has a clearance of at least 2.1 metres but we can assist with another car park where it is higher. I don't think it will be a problem.
The hotel has 37 rooms so it is quite boutique and it has 4 levels with the bulk of the rooms being on the first floor.
Please don't hesitate to contact us on 03 95370200 Kind regards, Jane
