“Check-in was not possible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2010

We arrived just after 5pm, reception should have been open until 9pm - nobody there! We stood outside the hotel and called the so called emergency number for after hour access over an hour - nobody answered!
We asked a guest for advice... She told us that we were not the first having this problem.
We were lucky that our friend managed to book another hotel nearby.

So if you really want to check-in somewhere do not try it at city edge ;)

Stayed December 2010, traveled with friends

The rooms have too much furniture in them half the ppl staying there have put excess furniture out on the tiny balcony so you can move around in the room. We were told the carpark was undercover when we booked only to find out when we got there it isn't asked to speak to manager, she wasnt there so left a message to call us about this and She has never rang us back poor service. Also on check out the receptionist wasnt helpful and was quite rude. It has no pram /wheelchair access and they wanted to charge us $30.00 to use a portacot Ive stayed at better rated places that only charge $5.00 or its free. Not great service for a hotel that just opened. Good location for shopping though

This serviced apartments only allows for maximum of 2 people per room. The rooms themselves were very compact but quite clean and tidy (this serviced apartments have just opened). Rooms are Medium sized with beds, TV, stoves, sink, bathroom, table, chairs and cooking utensils provided. However, there is not much space to move around inside the room. There is also a coin operated washing machine and dryer in the basement.
Reception staff were quite helpful and friendly and there was no problem with access to reception. This hotel is located in North Melbourne (near the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Melbourne University) and about 10 minute slow walk to Queen Victoria Market.
