It's five minutes from St Kilda beach, there's a decent bar out front and they now have a new café, Sugar Café Bar, with prices ranging from $8-$25 for food. In our books, that equates to the ideal hotel for a naughty escape, any night of the week.
Part of the Urban Hotels chain - it sets the benchmark for what to expect across the country - it is undoubtedly the best in the portfolio. Ultimately, can you really beat jacuzzis, St Kilda's vibe and good cocktails in Sydney or Brisbane?
Rates range from $160 - $330 and while you could stay at the more hip, and expensive, Prince Hotel next door, Hotel Urban offers great value for the price.
