We arrived earlier yesterday morning 7.30am after an uncomfortable all night flight with no sleep from Singapore, and were not really expecting our room to be ready, although I had emailed them saying we would be checking in early. The receptionist was amazing, friendly, helpful and a joy to deal with. She enquired about our room and it was ready!... More

Great location for everything in the city- I loved walking around a new city so the 15 min walk to main shopping strip was no big. Tram + queen Victoria markets (closed on Wednesdays!!) 5-10 min walk (depending if you walk slow or fast). Hotel itself is clean, modern and compact with flat screen TV with some Foxtel channels (need... More

We booked this hotel for two days. The price of this hotel is really reasonable and good. The first sight is great, clean, safe and simple modern design as photos. But when living in, we found some problems. 1. Reported to room serves to change the bed bottom sheet, because there was a dirty mark on it as photo and... More

Bed was very uncomfortable and cleaning was pretty slap dash .Were told parking was booked and when we arrived was told was unavailable and referred to a nearby park where our car was subject to attempted breakin.

We stayed at the City Tempo for nine nights from May 22-31, 2015. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel without any hesitation. We booked on obitz.com using a 15% off code and the rate was about US$90 per night. Included in the rate was free Wi-Fi for the entire stay. If we are ever in Melbourne again,... More

Location is good for short traveling around the CBD center, and Tram top is near by. There are many retaurant and shops near the hotel. I've stay at 9F and it is easily to hear the noise outside but luckly I had a good nigths whilse stay there, maybe it is because the bed was nice.

2 rooms booked, both rooms and vacated by 10 am and retuned to unclean late afternoon. Manager just wanted to make excuses rather then fix. Whistling noises from lift all night very hard to sleep. Parking advertised with no charges. But costed 21.5 per day. Some staff pleasant and good location.

This was a return visit to City Tempo as we liked it so much previously. Great location for hopping on the free circle line tram and getting around. We ordered a one bedroom like before but this time got a room with only a coffee table and one person desk. As were were staying five night and wanted to eat... More

Have stayed at this hotel a few times and and we were happily upgraded to a bigger room twice! The receptionists are very polite and welcoming. I have stayed in both the studio and 1 bdr rooms, they were spacious and exceptionally clean! Check in/out process was fast and easy and will stay again!
