We were in Melbourne for a week so we wanted space, our unit suited our needs. It was within walking distance of everything and the trams were great. (thumbs up to Melbourne) The service at City Tempo was great and the reception staff were helpful each time we approached them. The negatives? The shower took some getting used to but... More

Modern apartment with balcony -clean, great views- everything you required in the room, as for the staff - very friendly, helpful & not a problem at all to help us navigate to where we wanted to go, which helps when on a short stay and you are not sure where everything is! We never got lost once thanx to their... More

Stay at city tempo which is very near to my favourite Queen Victoria market. The city tempo facilities is very self sufficient and nice environment to stay. It would be better if the management could offer free Wi Fi.

People can make or break a trip and the staff at this hotel made the start of our trip to Australia fantastic. The room was comfortable without being spacious. The location was fantastic with easy access to the city, the markets, and transport.

The location of this apart-hotel is excellent. It's right in the middle of the CBD, so a short walk from all of the major attractions on Bourke and Swanston Streets (including China Town and the Yarra River) and the Victoria Market. There are also free trams that operate pretty regularly so getting around is not an issue. The room itself... More

Picked this hotel after reading many positive reviews and was drawn by the kitchenette. Hotel is near many cafes and amenities, and walking distance to Queen Victoria Market and Melbourne Central. Check in was smooth and service staff were friendly. Rooms will appear quite small initially but you'll get used to the compact size. The kitchenette has all the basic... More

Presumably, the small size of the rooms at this hotel means they can keep prices down. There are a couple of annoying things about the small rooms, like the foster glass separating the shower from the rest of the room, and the pokey basin area, on the whole the rooms are so well organised they can get away with it....

Had a comfortable and enjoyable stay here back in May. Enjoyed our view of the market especially at night. Facilities were top notch, rooms spacious, and staff very helpful and knowledgable of the City. Can't pick a single fault in it to be honest.

I booked City Tempo as it was close to where I had a function to attend. The room was just as described and clean and tidy. It was only 2 blocks to Victoria Markets and there was a convenience store a cross the road. I thought wifi was free but that was only in the foyer. Charges were approximately $10... More
