Melbourne welcomes St Jerome’s – The Hotel

Published June 29th, 2015

Glamping in the middle of the city? Imagine waking up in centre of Melbourne city inside your own luxury teepee on a rooftop above Little Londsdale street...

Dreams are now a reality, because the ultimate hipster-hotel has just landed in Melbourne. St Jerome’s – The Hotel offers ‘alternative accommodation with a charming soul’. Yep, it’s an urban jungle out there, and you can get amongst it by sleeping in style on its rooftop!

Feel the city being tamed as look out over its sparkling lights before retiring to your boutique teepee for the night, and watch it stir to life as the sun begins to rise the following morning.

There’s a lot to do in between sleeping too. We’ll admit, it’s not exactly as cheap night’s sleep in a tent, but there are perks.

Every tent is kitted out with heating, tablets, and mobile phones for overseas guests, plus a complimentary stocked eskie.

Bathrooms are a shared experience, but come complete with toiletries, hairdryers and big, fluffy robes to keep you warm.
