Reviewed 11 July 2013

Now what gives this a very good above the average is the apartments are in walking distance to the MCG, free car parking, good clean rooms and the rooms are reasonably comfortable. The single bed was excellent...the king size zipper bed had two extremes...soft and hard...good size cooking and kitchen facilities...for the area the price is excellent

We spent the weekend here and were very happy with our stay. The accommodation looks to have been recently updated. The staff were very freindly and helpfulwith our requests. What we liked was the fact we could walk into the city through some beautiful parks from the hotel. We were very happy with this location, close to transport, city and sporting venues. For the price this is great value!

My mum and I stayed here for a hospital trip. Location, price and size are the pros, and the cons - need I say more about the place after the title?!! We told a cleaning lady about this who hurried and assured us she would take care of it. We then told the guy on reception who didn't even ask follow up questions (??). Won't be returning

We spent Friday and Saturday night here and are very happy with the staff, location and price. We walked to the MCG and into the city through some of Melbourne's beautiful parks. Thank you again City Edge

Second time staying at City Edge, this stay was at Gipps St quieter than the Albert st location which I appreciated. Clean, great location and reasonably comfortable but showing its age. For the prices good value.

We booked City Edge Apartment in Albert street for it's location and reasonable price. Finding accommodation for 3 adults in Melbourne City with parking at a reasonable price was not easy but City Edge came to the rescue.
The room was clean, neat and tidy. The layout could have been better as to access the bathroom you needed to pass through the separate bedroom so was a little difficult for the person stuck out sleeping in the main living area. However I think for a family this is easily worked around.
The cooking facilities are very basic. You have a kettle, toaster and microwave but i wouldn't bother with the plug in stove and old pots. There is an IGA across the road (2 mins) which is open till late and situated in a little arcade with a few take outs places (fish and chips, burgers, pizza) and a nice little wine bar. A short walk away there are a couple of restaurants and a nice pub.
Parking was another reason we chose the City Edge Apartments. Parking is ample however we were reluctant to move our car after securing a spot for the night as the spots were numbered and did fill up fast. Luckily Melbourne has great public transport near by and as we were heading to Hisense Area for the Ice Hockey we could easily walk (approx. 15 to 20 mins and MCG is only about 10 mins away).
Staff were pleasant and helpful when we had questions although our interaction was limited.
Plenty of towels, soaps and shampoos (although no conditioner provided).
I would recommend to families traveling for football or tennis.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the back as the lucky one of us who slept out in the living space single bed had i...

These apartments are in such a wonderful spot - such easy access to the City and the Fitzory Street Gardens it is a huge shame they are being left to go to rack and ruin. We have stayed here a number of times over the past 8 years or so and slowly the condition is just getting worse and worse. This last visit makes me wonder if we will return. (1) The bathroom was a disgrace. There was hair from the pervious visitors all over the floor and painting the bathtub with paint???? What the???? It was peeling off around our feet. There wasn't hot water and the taps in the shower were extremely hard to use and we were worried that they would actually come away from the wall. (2) There wasn't a cover on the doona!! I was wondering how hygienic this is?? I was pretty disgusted with this. (3) In the kitchen there were issues with the faucet. We were so scared of touching it let alone moving it at all as we thought it would break off and we didn't want to get charged for this. (4) The overall smell of the place, but particularly the stairwell was disgusting. I thought someone must have used it as a toilet.

As I stated in the beginning of my review we find it a real shame that the condition of these apartments is just getting worse and worse with each visit, especially as we have made similar comments before. All that said we MIGHT try to stay here one more time before looking elsewhere.

Room Tip: Try an apartment in another one of their locations. We stayed at Gipps Street. Maybe one of the othe...
