City Edge have a chain of hotels around the city. I stayed in their North Melbourne site as it was walking distance from the University of Melbourne. After finding the entrance (a bit further down Peel St than my map would have suggested), I was checked in quickly and found my room. The reception is advertised as being open only from 9am to 6pm however upon my return from classes (around 9pm) there was still someone there which was nice.
The room was quite small, and the bathroom almost too small. There was a small kitchenette including a stove, fridge and microwave. A tiny balcony (no more than one person could use it) also overlooked the city.
The television reception dropped in and out, not a major hassle but annoying when I was trying to wind down after a day at work and uni. I probably wouldn't stay here again, because there was very little in the immediate area in terms of food (I had to travel back into the CBD and catch a tram back out to Nth Melb), also when I checked out (approx 8:30am) the reception wasn't open forcing me to carry my overnight bag to and around uni all day. This was advertised, however I was hoping that if they had someone on hand at 9pm the night prior, they might have someone on hand a bit earlier in the morning.
