This is the second stay for us and this time had a room not on the road side of Queen Street which made it much quieter. The rooms were serviced each day which was lovely to come home to a made bed. The bathrooms were kept to a high standard which gave you peace of mind when staying away form... More

My partner and I stayed for 5 nights in and were really happy! Every amenity you could ask for, rooms completely replenished and cleaned well every day. There was one issue regarding cleanliness of the room when we checked in, however when mentioned to the staff member who checked us in, she asked immediately if we wanted to move rooms.... More

Full kitchen inclusive of all cutlery, china, cookery, stove top, fridge, complimentary coffee, tea and cookie service; washing machine with washing powder; bathroom with all appropriate... More

We stayed at CityTempo twice, at the beginning and end of our roadtrip. It is well-located, only a few minutes walk to the Queen Victoria Market or central shopping malls. The free City Circle tram also stops just around the corner. Our first room must have been upgraded, as it had a larger bathroom, lovely balcony and pleasant city views... More

The best part about this hotel-apartment is a fairly good location. The airport skybus takes you to Southern Cross then provides a free shuttle to *some* hotels from there, and this is one. It's only a 5 minute walk to the Victoria Market and the free city circular tram, about 10 minutes to the Central Station/mall, and 15-30 walk to... More

Being the first time to Australia, first troubled by the postponing of the tiger-air flight for one day, then the impolite attitude of Quantas airline when trying to get another flight, followed by the unhelpful City Tempo staff. I went to a one day tour to Philip Island, back at near midnight, then found out the guest card for door-opening... More

I booked this hotel through Wotifs mystery hotel bookings, I've always avoided this option of booking but decided I should try it at lest once. On receiving the booking information I was unimpressed, I wouldn't have booked in this area ever. On booking in the staff were courteous, the room though the size of a shoebox was clean and well...

A 2 night stay upgraded to a lovely balcony room and free wifi. It was my first visit to Melbourne - City Tempo is just across the road from Victoria markets and an easy walk to shops, food and transport. My room was spacious and spotlessly clean (a real plus) and well set up for a few days stay with... More

Arrived after a long ardous flight to friendly staff and s clean and well equipped apartment on an upper floor as requested. The space was compact but comfortable and had everything we needed to spend four excellent nights there. Conveniently positioned for the Queen Victoria market and the free circular tram which takes you to most parts of the central... More
