I really have nothing negative to say. The room was well kept, stylish and we had good views for the 16th floor of Melbourne. The staff were really helpful with trams and getting to places. Loved it. I've stayed in many places in Melbourne and this place is the best so far.

Great security and after hours secure entrance. Reception is quick and efficient. located near Victoria markets and walking distance to Flagstaff underground station and many... More

Returning to this location for the third time in the space of 12 months, it is pleasing to see the consistency and reliability in standards of accommodation, whilst offering outstanding value. Ideal for the business traveller on a budget who is prepared to take a relatively short walk to find eating places for dinner and breakfast. In short, a well... More

Great location close to all amenities . Service was really good and friendly. Room was very clean, the view from our balcony was gorgeous. Amazing views of the city both in the day and evening. A 2 min walk to Queen Victoria Market. Trams were a 2 minute walk from the apartment . Would definitely stay here again..

We came for a theatre and shopping trip and this hotel/apts is perfect for it. Main shopping area is 5 mins walk and the theatres are 15 mins walk or you can catch the free tram, city circle, which is 2 mins walk away. Near the famous laneways with plenty of places to eat and drink. The bonus for me... More

I booked City Tempo after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed in any way. I arrived after an early flight and I was able to check in immediately. The studio apartment was on the 9th floor with a small balcony. It was small but perfectly designed, a compact bathroom with good lighting, a kitchenette with washer/dryer,... More

The staff at City Tempo were very helpful. I would recommend anyone to stay here. This was a short stay for us but it was a very pleasant experience and the bed was so comfortable, we are coming back for sure.
