“Good location BUT dirty, needs a make over”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Stayed at city edge Tribeca DO NOT get confused with Tribeca serviced apartments. Went with family and got there late, walked in an disappointed. Small lounge with a 2 seater sofa although 2 bdm so 4 people staying. Dishes oily, oven vile, mould on bathroom tiles and dog hair all over carpet.. Complained next morning and told their had been a person with a guide dog in the apartment and obviously had not been vacuumed properly. We moved to bigger and slightly better apartment but still smelt, oven dirty and stuff on walls not just marks. Water from shower sprayed all over wall and now mouldy and swollen. Also beds uncomfortable and noisy with offices across looking straight into lounge area . We paid less than other apartments but my understanding is when it is cheaper you get less commodities ie no foxtel, no daily cleaning service,no room service, no toiletries, further away from city BUT does not mean should be dirty and run down.

Room Tip: ask for larger 2bdm apartments as there are different sizes

This place was a little disappointing. There were a number of issues which we detailed for them - the towels were so thin that they ripped, the bed had some kind of loose mattress protector on it which was really a doona. It crinkled up underneath you and if you sleep restlessly this bed is a nightmare!

The windows were supposed to be double glazed - looks like the only one that was was the one that opened. Noise from other air conditioning units also kept us awake.

And the chopping board had food left on it (put away in the cupboard)

Three of us stayed in a 2 bedroom studio apartment at the City Edge Treasury in East Melbourne. Price was good as we got a 4 day+ special and the location was fantastic. You book in at reception at 92 Albert Street and then the hotel is only 200m or so away. Had off street parking which was a bonus. Less than 15 minutes walk to the CBD through the parklands. IGA just across the road through a lane and an IGA liquor next to it to get some supplies to fill the fridge. There was a pizza and fish and chip shop in the lane, didn’t eat there but food looked yummy and fresh, not bad prices either. Room was nice and roomy, all cooking facilities were there plus the fridge, aircond worked well and even the window opened to let in some fresh air. Big TV on the wall. There are only a couple of power points around but I always have a small powerboard to plug in to keep all the electronic gadgets charged. Bathroom had shower and bath, nice and big an airy, but I don’t know what the story with the hand basin was . . . it was about 3 foot up from the floor, very weird indeed! The beds have seen better days and were a bit lumpy but we’ve had worse over the years. The hotel is 3 storeys which is serviced by a lift and of course you can use the stairs. Plenty of tourist information as you come in through the entrance and a couple of food and drink machines near the lifts. All in all it was pretty good and I would stay there again and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Back rooms, which we were in, have a beautiful view of a brick wall! Front rooms would look onto the...

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!

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.
