Stayed here ANZAC day weekend, the rooms was spacious although it had seen better days was pleasant. We had a ground floor room on Albert street, as we are not used to traffic found it quite noisy. The room had everything you need and the bathroom had a full size bath. Pleasant staff. Walking distance to the MCG and Shrine.... More

I wouldn't usually book budget at accommodation, but a relative booked this for a Saturday night. It was clean and roomy. Towels were good and bed linen fine. The rooms are a little rough around the edges, but for an economical choice with a good location within a 20 min walk of the city, they suited our needs. Check in... More

I booked Gipps st in Jan for our Aznac day weekend and when we arrived we had been bumped to Albert st. We have stayed at all East Melb locations and the reason I book Gipps St is it is a very quiet location. A room backing onto the driveway at Albert st you hear the gravel noise as cars... More

In comparison to higher priced accommodation we feel we get a better deal here. The newer places may look better but you get a pokey cube divided into cramped areas which often lack hooks in shower area and the very basic supplies of the everyday facilities and only double beds, giving a poor nights sleep for those over 6 foot...

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..
