I stayed for two nights in a one-bedroom apartment in CityEdge's older block in Albert Street. Yes - it has stairs (no elevator) and an original 1960s bathroom with a shower over the bathtub, but that was fine. The advantage of an older building is that the rooms are very large and the internal walls are solid brick, which makes... More

Great location. But... room really needed to be updated and was very tired. Shower dripped constantly and was only ever enough water for one 2 minute shower, and as there was four of us this just wasn't acceptable. When we opened the bathroom cupboard there was more mould in there than on an old block of cheese. The shower had... More

I had to stay in Melbourne for three nights for work, and the City Edge was offering Albert Street one-bedroom apartments for A$90. It's hard to pass up such an extraordinarily cheap deal in Melbourne, so I thought I'd give it a go. I had fairly low expectations. Check-in is at the reception of an old, grey motel that doesn't...

This hotel is deperately in need of maintenance. Taps, toilets drip, leak or hiss, shower doors are cracked or missing. The place has been painted badly over & over again with paint drips everywhere. In contrast, windows haven't been painted outside & are almost falling apart. Cupboard doors don't close properly & some of the beds are old & unsupportive.... More

Our second time staying at Gipps street apartment with our two kids. We love the location, with a choice of four trams routes within a short 10 minute walk, beautiful surrounding suburbs to walk through, access to a lovely parklands nearby. The parking at the rear is a bit tight if there are a number of large vehicles, but once... More

We stayed on the third floor, easily accessible by lift and stairs. The unit was clean and just what we were after for a family. Great location close to parks and trams. Will definitely stay here again!

We wanted to take the kids to the footy at the MCG for a school holiday treat and decided to make a weekend of it. I searched for ages for somewhere close the CBD, that was reasonably priced and could accommodate for 2 adults and 2 children. Most of the places I came up with were just far too expensive... More

I stayed in a 2br apartment in Gipps St (Apartment 12) with my daughter and her two children for 3 nights this week.
