I booked the room through WOTIF as a special business deal that included free wifi which was a must for me (and an Age newspaper). It was really close to Franklin street, where I needed to be. Everything was brand new, fresh and clean. Very good security...couldn't go anywhere without the security card allowing me too! No noise issues whatsoever,... More

The apartment hotel is located at a very convenient location (Queen Street) and the check-in was seamless. I had informed the staff prior to my trip that I would be arriving in the morning and an early check-in would be preferred. It was arranged and among the requests I asked for were also met by the management. Security of the... More

A bit pricey but we had a perfect stay. Washing machine dryer in room, fully equipped kitchen, small clean bathroom, lovely comfy bed and big tv. We stayed in a studio and it was plenty big enough for two of us - compact and neat. Everything was in perfect condition and felt well looked after, down to small touches like... More

When I booked the review rating was 4.8 out of 5 with the label Fabulous! So my expectations were high. Maybe a little too high. However the apartment hotel is very popular and heavily used. Security is good. When I checked in the very polite Indian staff member said that he must charge my credit card A$1. I questioned this... More

The location is great cause it is near to a few eateries and queens market as well! There is a korean fried chicken restuarant below, very nice! Yummy! The apartment is small but has everything that you need, kitchen, fridge, tv etc. There is a nice gym as well, nice to workout in.

Excellent location - close to Queen Victoria Markets, Burke Street is a 5 min walk, close to public transport and the free City Circle Tram. Friendly staff at reception. We had an interconnecting room - one studio room and the other studio room with a balcony on the 10th floor. Cooking and washing facilities in both rooms. Very little storage... More

I arrived early at City Tempo, the staff were very friendly and very helpful. They made sure my room was a priority to be cleaned, I wasn't expecting that as I did arrive early and I knew check-in time was 2pm. I was on level 3 and still had a great view, I stayed in a Studio room and it... More

City Tempo hotel offers comfortable [not luxurious] accommodation in Queen Street a stones throw from the Queen Victoria markets. The apartments come with a kitchen, shot plate, dishwasher, microwave, cutlery and crockery so if you don't want to take advantage of the excellent dining opportunities that abound in Melbourne you can cook in. We did once in our week's stay.... More
