We stayed here for 4 nights recently. Yes it is budget accomodation but that doesnt mean you let the place run down! Outlay of room is terrible. Bathroom would be the worst i have seen EVER in a motel/apartment! If u weigh more than 50 kilos dont bother, the shower door is only big enough for a small child!! The...

Thank you so very very much for a pleasant, easy and very welcoming stay. Elizabeth at reception was beyond fantastic. The apartment was clean, functional and comfortable. We have been trying to find a home away from home for 6 months for monthly doctor and hospital trips for my son and we have now found it. Again, thank you so...

Modern facilities, comfortable beds, secure & quiet, parking building only $10/day, really good location. There was only petty little complaints about this place & these could've been addressed quite easily, but reception is down the street & we were there over Christmas, so couldn't be bothered disrupting our plans to go & ask for them to be fixed. The extremely...

Poor customer service sums up our experience here. Error through booking meant that we were one bed short over New Years with no solution offered by City Edge, other than to contact the booking agent... Which we did and they offered a refund (of the accidental charge) 1 week later. Though, I will say the booking problem may not have...

We got apartment for very good money and location was also good but this is where fun ended. First of all, they said there is air con, BUT they don't tell you that your air con is in another room and in bedroom, well if it's hot then you will melt. We left air con on to cool down apartment...

Stayed in a 2 bed apartment with another couple from Christmas Day to New Year's Day. Only 1 key, wouldn't give us a second, so we all had to come and go at the same time, FRUSTRATING. TV broken, toilet seat broken, one gas cooktop broken (only 2 burners). Bed was about as hard as sleeping on the floor, very...

We found the accomodation to be clean and practical. Service was helpful and friendly. It was good value for the price paid. Walking distance from MCG, IGA and Hungry Jacks which was perfect for us. We would stay there again.

We had this trip in February this year, but just slipped my mind to write a review about it. This is my first time in Australia and first time in Melbourne. Just a quick trip with family sending brother in law to Swinburne Uni. We took 2 bedder apartment. According to my wife the location at is quite ok, and...

Stayed three nights, all staff very helpful and obliging. Parking onsite ensures your car doesn't get towed away. Value for money as close to hospital facilities. Building is old but you pay for what you get. I would recommend to anyone on a budget.

Charged my credit card for key that was returned. No communication from them. Only found out by seeing it on credit card statement. Old Building, cheap furniture, uncomfortable bed, mould in bathroom, poor value.
