Booking online I thought that for the price the accommodation shown was reasonable enough. Arriving late at night with my elderly mother, there was no way into the Powlett St facility as there is no one attending reception after hours, No mention was made of this in the confirmation. Fortunately I happen to arrive with a number of other guests... More

City Edge Gipps Street apartments are ideally located in East Melbourne close to the city centre, Collingwood and Richmond. Location is quiet and genteel with the median price of surrounding houses over $2m. Apartments are dated, basically but adequately furnished and with a minimum of appliances. Beds are comfortable. Heating in winter is basic, hot water can run out early.... More

We booked a "deluxe studio apartment" that was so horrible it actually ruined our trip to Melbourne. The facilities were truly awful. From the front step (and steps inside at reception) definitely not being accessible friendly (THIS IS NOT ADVERTISED ANYWHERE). I didn't think you could operate a business these days without disabled entrance - to the front door of... More

It is basic level accommodation but the location and price of the apartment were good for us. The room was clean and bed comfy. The reception staff were very helpful and I loved the fact I could prepare basic meals and had a free car park.

We arrived in a cold Melbourne evening to find that both heaters at our apartment were out of order. The room was absolutely freezing! Our experience didn't improve any from there. The springs could be felt in the mattress, making sleep near impossible, and the bathroom was putrid. There is no onsite management, and at checkout, on speaking to the... More

Friendly staff, great central location, standard older style apartment/unit with all of the basics. Cons would be only one heat pump in the main room and no where else? The blankets on the beds are thin so it's freezing for the second room & lounge! Suggestion - thicker blankets or electric blankets AND perhaps oil heaters for each unit, it... More

We stayed here for two nights recently as a family. The hotel is in a great location, making it very easy to get to the city. We booked a deluxe studio apartment. Unfortunately there was nothing deluxe about the room. Very dated. Mould in the bathroom as there was no exhaust fan. Paint flaking on walls and sink. We had... More

Whilst it was close to CBD, they did not organise our booking properly we booked and paid for a room with two separate beds, double and single,for two adults. Room was only one double. They were going to make us deal with this, we were not a couple. But there was a cancellation and we ended up with two bedroom... More

Nothing good to say. Heater doesn't work, no hot water, dirty, noisy, with a ridiculously small car park which you can't use if you don't want your car damaged. No reception after 6.00 and people coming and going at all hours of the night. Don't bother, terrible, terrible, terrible.
