4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights. The apartment was comfortable and well located. There are many great restaurants nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only issue was the whistling in the room when it gets really windy besides this I would highly recommend this apartment.

We stayed at city tempo in the last week of February 2015. To sum up my experience, it was a fit for purpose, budget accomodation that delivered what was promised. Comfort: We got a top floor room with a balcony. The room came with a fully equipped kitchen (induction stove, utensils, microwave, cutlery etc). It did look like a lot... More

Whilst the staff are nice enough there's a design fault with all the apartments in this building. When the wind blows through the building, which it does with great regularity, it creates a high pitch whistling noise through each & every apartment. The management will tell you that it's unusual but each apartment includes a draft excluder (a kind of... More

The apartment was spacious, comfortable and well lit. The design is intelligent and gives room to move. We were particularly impressed with the excellent reading lamps. City Tempo is well situated to Queen Victoria Markets and buses that run right past the Melbourne Recital Centre on Southbank. There is an outstandingt coffee cafe downstairs. The staff were very efficient and... More

We stayed at this property for 3 nights. The location is central, on the outer edge of the CBD. It is less than a 5min walk to the free tram zone. We arrived early to see if we could leave our bags and check in later. The lady on the reception, who was very nice informed us we could check... More

Arrived early - dealt with us very well. Texted us when the room was ready. Exceptionally comfortable bed. Great white goods - fridge, dishwasher, dryer/washing machine. Superb shower!!! Weird though - when it was windy the breeze literally shook the room. However, for price, location, service I would stay there again - actually will be in the summer!

Booked this hotel based on the reviews from trip advisor and I was not disappointed. The location was excellent! It was walking distance to all main sights and shopping areas in the city. 5 minutes walk to Melbourne Central. And if you don't feel like walking, it is located within the free tram zone. :) There is a cafe just... More

The best thing about this place is that we had an extremely friendly and competent receptionist who let us check in early (without us even asking). He was really nice. The worst thing is that the rooms are small, especially the bathroom! It's ok for small people but if you're tall the sink would be way too low for you.... More

I stayed at this property for 2 nights. It is in a good central location, and the hotel was generally well maintained. Our 1 bedroom apartment was very small, compared to others I've stayed at in Melbourne. Furniture was clean, but seemed cheap and nasty, and again was very small and not comfortable. Rooms were in good condition and clean.

We were looking for more than a hotel room for a short stay in Melbourne. City Tempo was well priced (three-night deal was good value) and we were pleasantly surprised with the location, standard and facilities. Our studio was about the same size as a normal hotel room but someone who knows about travelling (and has travelled for business) has... More
