This was hands down the worst place i have ever stayed. Sure, it was cheap and location was convenient, however there was nothing else positive to say. I asked reception for a late check out and she told me i had to wait until 10am (check out time) to go down to reception and see if it was allowed. Thank... More

Arrived in the dark and the rain only to be told we had to walk, with our luggage, to Gipps Street. The apartment was run down, shabby and the sofa looked like it came from a brothel (full of crumbs and dirt). There were leads draped across the wall for the tv and the curtains did not meet. I have... More

DON'T STAY HERE! After spending weeks searching for a hotel/serviced apartment in East Melbourne I chose City Edge because they seemed to have the best deals to offer. The reservation I made was for 1 room with 1 King bed and 1 double bed. The room/apartment was located at another location to check-in and I didn't mind that, however what... More

Spent two nights in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very comfortable and well appointed. Just what we needed to come home to at the end of a couple of busy days in Melbourne. Slept well. Great location for us. Close to MCG and Fitzroy Gardens. Staff very good. Helpful. Main bedroom was a bit small and they used the... More

These apartments were large, comfortable and conveniently situated. The bed was very comfortable and the facilities were all in good working order. The service at reception was friendly and professional.

I was a bit worried about staying here after reading all the reviews. The only negative was that I was given an address so was dropped off there, read that reception is at another address so had to walk there, then my room was at yet another address which I had to walk to. But as I walked into my... More

I have stayed at various City Edge outlets over the past 5 years and have found them to be affordable and close to everything. The last time there we had an apartment with a bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom for $95 a night! Now that really works for me. I will continue to use them when in Melbourne.
