Not happy staying at City Edge Hotel. Looked ok on WOTIF but disappointing on arrival. Family room was a windowless internal room with a pokey shower. Double bed was two singles pushed together. Similar priced hotels in the vicinity would serve your family better.

Tiny rooms, basic amenities, but convenient for the location and fine for a quick stay where you won't be spending much time in your hotel aside from sleeping. Walking distance to Queen street & Southbank parklands.

Room - extremely small then I upgraded to the executive suite that was Tiny for what the name stood for. This hotel needs to renovate really badly... The toilets and shower are dirty with hair all over from the last guests and I don't believe the staff even washes them for the next guest.... The décor is old fashioned to...

The room was very clean, but very small, everything was bright white, again with everything you need....Wi-Fi TV , toaster and microwave... Breakfast was an odd choice, cereal or toasted chicken sandwich. Tea coffee or juice

Executive Double Room - I would be worried about what a standard room was like. This room was very small. Just enough room for a bed. The bathroom was very old fashioned but it was all that was needed. If you are wanting a nice night away, I would suggest looking elsewhere for the money you pay to stay here.

This is a budget hotel and the facilities are minimal. The reception desk people are cordial and helpful. The location is great as one could walk to the city, train stations, etc. within minutes. I could walk from the hotel to Roma St. Parkland, the Botanic Garden and Southbank without too much trouble. However, It was my bad luck that...

Although this hotel is very inexpensive, it does not live up to any positive expectations and either upgrading or going to a hostel would be a better option. There is no space to hang anything longer than a short No hair dryer Very aging No iron, unless you can find the communal laundry (out the back, down the stairs), and...
