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.

We chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We took the Skybus from Melbourne airport and their free shuttle bus dropped us off right outside the hotel. We were early to check in, but they kept our bags and sent us a text message half an hour later to tell us that the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Lovely and clean apartment with everything you need for a short stay. It's very close to the Queen Victoria Markets and IGA ideal for homemade meals from fresh groceries. The heater was a bit loud but was good at keeping the room warm. Great gym facilities didn't end up using the sauna but... More

Nothing amazing about this hotel but it ticks all the boxes. I wish there was a facilities tab because the facilities are awesome (in-built kitchen, nice gym etc.) I'm a light sleeper and i was fine. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Melbourne CBD

Late review here. I stayed at City Tempo with my hubby for almost 10 days and it's a great experience. Clean room, well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. Great location to the market and train stations. We miss this place.

Can't really "rave" about City Tempo. But don't have any real complaints. Whilst staff were swift and helpful at check in time they didn't go out of their way with on formation.(I had to ask for a map).the studio apartment whilst clean and modern was let down by bathroom. It was set up as a disabled bathroom (not sure if... More

We are so pleased to have found City Tempo in Melbourne. We are frequent visitors to see family, friends, occasionally shows and football matches and it is so nice to have a clean, fresh, welcoming hotel a little bit out of the hustle and bustle and noise of downtown Melbourne. We didn't have a car but noticed a car park... More
