I understand we were not going to get 5 star accommodation at the budget price we paid or a 2 bedroom apartment in a reasonably central location but i do believe a few things could have been done better to make it a reasonable stay. The general cleanliness of the place was very average, food under couch cushions, unclean shower....

Remember your mother's (or grandmother's) first kitchen from the 50's, with those old pre war looking tiles and decor? Well welcome to City Edge Treasury at 92 Albert St. east Melbourne. Can you see those lovely photos in the advertised space at the top of the page? Well put them right out of your mind as the apartments are nothing...

In a word – AVOID I don’t have either the time or the space to list all of the problems with this property. The pictures on the web site look good, but they bear no resemblance to the actual 2 bedroom apartment on Gipps Street that we were subjected to. It is grotty, especially for what they charge. Bad housekeeping...

We booked this two bed room apartment via booking.com for two nights . We were very disappointed by the quality of the apartment and cleanliness. It was advertised to be fully air-conditioned, but there was only one air conditioner for one room and it was not working as well. When we raised this issue on day 1 to the hotel...

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...
