Have stayed here at Albert St many times over the years but it's gone downhill with maintenance. Toilets & taps leak & shower doors are broken or missing. They tried to rent us room 15 knowing full well that the aircon didn't work. I had stayed there 4 months previously & the air conditioner/heater wasn't working then & is still...

This is the worst stay out of all the accomodations we had in our mini tour of Australia. We visited Brisbane, cairns and we had never had an issue with our rooms but this one in particular is not recommended for anyone. We payed nearly 600 dollars for a family of 4 and when we entered the entrance to the...

I was very disappointed. One person booked us 3 rooms and the booking was mishandled by who ever was spoken to, 1 person had to negotiate for over one hour re the booking and then we all had to pay an extra $300 on top of our weekly rate as we were booked for a whole week. After that was...

This is definitely a budget hotel but firstly the positives: The off street parking was convenient and reasonable at $10/night. The location was very handy both to and from the M1 and within short walking distance of a tram stop with a short trip straight into the centre of Melbourne via Collins St. Unfortunately that's where it stops. The image...

Clean & comfortable but in need of upgrade. Air con needed fixing and shower in executive suite, front of Albert Street needed a step as it was near impossible to get in and out of shower. It was very noisy due to traffic and other tenants slamming doors and running up and down stairs yelling out. Parking was provided but...

The hotel and studio room (in short) is not just over-priced but really is disgusting -for my husband and myself it was a last minute Saturnight night booking - another long story-but our options were limited. We like this location and we had to get to our groups reservations in the city. We should have been more suspicious straight away...

Stayed for 4 nights. 1 bedroom apartment was perfect for our needs. Kitchen practical and usable. Location amazing for easy access to city and transport. However, the bathroom is in a need of an update. The shower head is only suitable for a dwarf. The tiles and grout need to be either replaced or scrubbed clean again with bleach. The...

This three star was okay for our family of four. We travelled to Melbourne for preliminary final so it was a whirlwind trip. Building is dated and needs a lot of maintenance. All the windows appeared rotted. Rooms big but modern decorating I can see they have added to try and improve the overall appearance. Bathroom old and dated but...

We stayed for one night at this place. There are four properties of City Edge in East Melbourne. They have a common reception on Powlet street. You check in at reception and they direct you to the property where your booking is. You need to return the key back at the reception. There is no support staff at Gipps, where...
