We stay at City Edge apartment whenever we go to Melbourne. We thought we'd try Tribeca this time. As we had a car, we paid on additional $10 for car parking at Tribeca. City Edge staff at Treasury advised us which bay to park and provided us with a map. We were conscious that it is important to park in... More

I stayed at the Tribeca and while it was nothing fancy - it was perfect for us. The price was much less expensive than other places so I was apprehensive upon arrival. We checked in across the road and were so pleased to see where Tribeca was located (in a quaint little walkway with a florist, hairdresser, bottle shop, fish... More

This apartment is within walking distance to the CBD. The bed linen and towels were clean and there is free wifi for 24 hours. There is plenty of hot water and water pressure in the shower is excellent. The size of the one bedroom Albert St apartments is good. However, the place was shabby, grubby and poorly maintained. The chairs... More

We rented a two bedroom apartment for a few nights in the City Edge Tribeca Apartments after reading that these were the best ones. The apartment itself was nice, with the essentials provided for the kitchenette and a little laundry area in the bathroom, however there were a few things we were taken back by. One was the location, reception... More

We stayed there for 3 night to visit Melbourne. The apartments are quite affordable, big and comfortable : big beds, big kitchen, living room very cool. The location is quite good to visit the city, you can walk or take a tram. Maybe there could be 2 heaters instead of 1 for the winter...

We stayed for the location, which was close enough to some things to walk, but had public transport close to use also. Included was parking at no extra charge, plus 2 hours of free internet (which if you logged off after each use, we found was sufficient for our stay). We had a kitchen that we used mostly for breakfasts... More

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
