If you are looking for budget accommodation for a longer stay this is the place. Walking distance to trams, shops, restaurants and a short tram ride from the city centre. Our 1 bedroom apartment was modest yet provided all we needed for a comfortable stay. No bells and whistles here but great for the visitor on a budget.

Very convent location that was close to where I needed to be and a a good price. Facilities were average but clean. A little noisy but it's in the city so that's to be expected. All in all I found it to be good.

Very small room, dated decor, limited internet. Booked on the internet looking at one set of pictures, but City Edge has various properties and we were sent off to another location nearby. Bait and switch? Headline price looks good, but then you don't get much for your money. I would be inclined not to stay here again. City Edge just... More

We stayed at the Gipps Street apartments. The accommodation was more dated than it looked in the pictures but it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff were helpful. Was an great location for the MCG.

I recently had to stay in Melbourne and was very happy with the friendly and very helpful staff at City Edge Apartments. It is close to Peter Mac, and good shops nearby. I would stay again if I need to go to Melbourne again in the near future..

My parents and me, we booked accidentaly two two bedroom apartments for three nights, but needed only one of the apartments. Directly on the first day, we explained the mistake at the reception and friendly asked for a refund, at least for the second and the third night. For more than an hour we had to talk to hotels.com, wait... More

Problems started right at the start. Whilst checking in at the Powlett Street address we were in fact told that our unit was located in Gipps Street, even though all our booking papers stipulated that it was Polwett Street. When we arrived at our unit in Gipps Street we found the door to our apartment unlocked, anyone could have walked... More
