Stayed there a few nights and location is superb so close to all the CBD shops but wind noise at night presents a big problem for guests. It could be solved easily with better door and window seals. Staff were efficient and pleasant too. Walls are too thin so expect to hear your neighbours late at night if you are... More

Great hotel in a great location. Very quiet area, short walk to the City Circle tram stop and a reasonable walk to the CBD. 2 minute walk away from Queen Victoria Market. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Free wifi and a decent gym. Definitely recommended.

The Good: Walking distance to Queen Vic Market, Melbourne Central & Swanston Street. Room comes with full amenities. Hotel staff is adequately friendly. Clean room and clean bed. IGA is just opposite the hotel, but doesn't open 24hrs. The Bad: We checked-in after hours so there isn't any concierge. The security guard was our 'concierge' and...he wasn't friendly at all....

We recently stayed at City Tempo for three days. The rates were excellent and the location perfect as we were going to the football at Ethiad Stadium. The apartment was clean and we had plenty of room. We would definitely stay there again next time we visit Melbourne.
