Melbourne's Rooftop Glamping Hotel Is Zipping Up

You've got until April 25 to spend a night above the city.

If you haven't yet slept over at St. Jerome's — Melbourne's first ever rooftop glamping hotel — then you'd better get in quick. The operators have announced that they'll be shutting up shop for good on April 25, 2018.

The announcement brings to an end a three-year residence atop Melbourne Central. Since May 2015, locals and visitors have been snuggling inside St Jerome's luxe bell tents, ensconced in queen beds draped with lush linen and shuffling about in robes and slippers. Every stay also comes with a bunch of extra indulgences, including an esky filled with local booze, cocktails, tea and ice cream (delivered to your tent) and brekkie. And, if you're in need of extracurricular activities, there's a tablet loaded with flicks, complimentary ten-pin bowling at nearby Strike and a morning meditation session.

The good news is that it's not too late to make a booking. Moreover, the entrepreneur responsible for the hotel, Jerome Borazio, is promising more adventures. St. Jerome's is just one of many projects he's conceptualised and delivered over the past few years. Others include St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, Ponyfish Island, The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo, Fat Chance Hotel and Back Alley Sally's.

To snag one of the final bookings, head to the St Jerome's website. You can also check out seven other glamping spots near Melbourne here.
