“Too noisy to sleep”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2007

* Good price.
* Free undercover car parking.
* Room was of good size.
* Bed was comfortable.
* Bathroom was of good size. Good water pressure and stable hot water temperature.
* Tea and coffee facilities.
* Iron and ironing board.
* Air con kept the room warm.
* Available via internet bookings.

* Tiled foyer creates a great deal of noise, especially when high healed guests return from an evening out. It was loud enough to wake me from a sound sleep.
* The ceiling of the ground floor room does not appear to be of solid construction. This allowed the footsteps of 1st floor guests to be heard. Generally this should not be of great concern unless, like us, you are unlucky to have a 1st floor guest constantly moving around the room from 2:30am.
* Be careful when requesting a 'non-smoking' room. We requested a non smoking room and was assured we had received one, it turned out not to be the case. Cigarette burns on the bathroom sink and the stench of old cigarette smoke pervaded the room.

I think a number of unfortunate circumstances culminated in a very unpleasant experience for us and we will not stay there again. For those tempted by the price and location be careful to get a genuine non smoking room (for the non smokers of us) and take some ear plugs with you.

  • Liked — Good Price, Located where I needed to be.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2007

City edge hotel has a great position for travellers who want to be near the east side of the city, close to the fantastic vietnamese restaurants in victoria and gay bars in collingwood. The room we had was a queen with spa and was very large, clean with a microwave, foxtel and dvd player. The rates are very reasonable. The only down side was the airconditioner was not strong enough to cool the room. Staff were friendly and helpful.

  • Liked — large room , position and price
  • Disliked — airconditioning, no elevator
  • Tips/Secrets — book direct for a better price, parking has 2.3 m clearance (was told it was lower)
