“Excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

Hi,

I stayed at 92 albert street, east Melbourne, city edge apartment last week, booked online, arrive 10:00 pm after 15 hour long journey and found the keys in electronic box easily, so no hassle.

My apartment was of one bed, nice and tide, all amenities in perfect condition including aircon, LCD tv, kitchen items etc. And most lovely thing is park infront of hotel. Convenient location to CBD, just 5 minutes by Tram or bus. For shopping/grocery IGA is just near by. So for new arrival in Melbourne or in australia, City edge is the best place to start and live in with affordable cost.

Minor problems are ignorable, though its budget hotel. Staff is also very cooperative, Specially Elizabeth and James.

Thanks City Edge!

We stayed at the Tribecca Apartments from the City Edge apartment chain for a boys sports weekend. Basic 2 bedroom apartment within walking distance to mcg and rod laver arena. Bedding was very comfy. Balcony was the smallest balcony i have seen. iga and bottlo in complex which is great for a boys weekend away. overall good for a boys sports weekend.

Dear Damo79,

alway happy to have you back at City Edge hotels. Our apartments are the closed accommodation available to MCG and the prices are very competitive.

I also want to recommend for your consideration our new hotel City Edge North Melbourne - it is conveniently located close to Etihad Stadium.

Currently we have on our website some good specials starting from $89 for studio apartment.

Have a good day and safe trip home.
Regards,
City Edge Team

I booked with short notice during one of Melbournes busiest times ( Aust Open) so was surprised to find such a great rate. Although very modern the Peel St appartments are tiny. We had twin beds.one of which was really in the kitchen space. Well equipped with kitchen facilities good for eating take away but probably dangerous to try and cook anything in such a confined space. We used the stairs as the lift seemed very unreliable. Air conditioning is great, large TV with all digital channels. Better than a motel.

As I have a family and we are from interstate and budget conscious ,we always select an apartment with a kitchen and free parking facilities.This time we tried the Treasury apartment on Albert St rather than the Wellington apartments.The room is advertised as a family room but it is extremely small.The kitchenette was the most disappointing part as it lacks a proper stove, no cupboard space for groceries and a very small preparation surface. All that is provided is a portable hot plate , a microwave and a small bar fridge. We had to go out and buy a decent frying pan as the one provided had seen better days as a non stick pan. The cutting knife was blunt as well.One needs to step into a bath tub to have a shower so it may not suit an elderly or disabled person. The car parking is so tight that I picked up a dent on my passenger side door. Parking is available in the street but a clearway operates from 7.00 am so one needs to get up early to move the vehicle.The air conditioner is a bit dodgy as it lacked any real grunt. Fortunately we didn't have any extreme weather of 40 degrees plus as our windows were facing north. On the positive side the beds were comfortable , a short walk to the city through Fitzroy gardens to the CBD , walking distance to the Asian shops and restaurants on Victoria St and walking distance to the clothing shops on Bridge St.There is a nearby park and tennis courts for hire.
I recommend paying the extra dollars to stay at the Wellington apartments as they have a fully functional kitchen ,dishwasher and washing machine. The bedrooms are separated and they have a large living area . The extra money spent on eating outside when staying at the Treasury will more than compensate the extra cost of the Wellington apartment with its better facilities.

Room Tip: Occasional street noise from drunks at night so southern side is better but they have no views.

Stayed here in Nov 2011 for a girls weekend in Melbourne. Accommodation was very basic which was expected for the price, but it was really disappointing. Firstly we weren't told until check in that our apartment was in Gipps St which is about two blocks from the Albert St reception( Not too far, but a bit inconvenient to walk with luggage). The apartment was small and old, the blankets had holes, the bathroom tiny, ran out of hot water and it wasn't as clean as it should be. The information file on the coffee table mentions how to dial reception, and what the direct number for the apartment is, but the apartment had no phone.

It is reasonably priced, but I think the website and photos are deceptive, our room looked nothing like those shown on their site.

Well appointed appartments at great value price. Clean and nicely presented, comfortable beds. Bit of a walk into town but plenty of public transport and nicely located for some of the more interesting suburbs in Melbourne.
Would definately stay again
