A significant relic of Melbourne's bohemian past with artwork from legendary artist and celebrity, Mirka Mora on display.
The quirky Hotel Tolarno is in the middle of St. Kilda's cafe and restaurant strip, and a short stroll from the beach. Rich red carpets bedeck the corridors throughout the 1950s and 1960s retro-style building. In an earlier life, the building was owned by Melbourne artist Mirka Mora (after whom the hotel's new restaurant has been named), and the tradition continues today, with the walls hung with work by Melbourne artists. Rooms vary, but all are modern and nice. The most popular, the deluxe doubles, are in the front of the building and have balconies overlooking the main street. They are larger than the standard rooms. Superior doubles come with a microwave and two have Japanese baths. Suites come with a separate kitchen and lounge. Suites don't have balconies, though some have Jacuzzis.
