My daughter and I stayed here for a weekend for an event a Etihad Stadium. We booked just a one bedroom apartment and it was perfect for us. The rooms is not huge but it is clean and has everything you need. We had terrible weather so we did spend one night in and just made ourselves something for dinner... More

Really great place to stay if you like the option of cooking for yourself instead of being forced to eat out every meal! Stayed here for 5 nights with my partner for Soundwave music festival and it was really great. Coming into the air-conditioned room when it was over 30c outside was the best ! Good location, walking distance from... More

Hubby and I stayed in the studio apartment for a few nights in Feb 2015. Please remember to request for washer/dryer if you require it. Room was new and clean. Good walking distance (3 mins) to Queen Victoria Market, 20 mins to Lygon St. The free Melbourne city circle tram is on the next street. There's a IGA supermarket right... More

Room was ok and did the job required. Good for sleeping! Kitchenette had all that was needed and bathroom was fine. Bit of walk from the city but all in what I needed. Convenience Store across the way has all you need but I would eat at the restaurant just by the front entrance.

Had a great experience at City Tempo. Staff were very professional and helpful and the accommodation was good for the money. Close to the center of the city and Queens markets. We can recommend this place for a budget stay in the center of Melbourne.

Room was comfy, although not having central aircon seems a bit odd for a fairly modern building. Really all we needed was a bed for the night, and with so much on in Melbourne that night we were restricted with choices, but overall this was a nice enough stay. A little bit of a language barrier with staff, but in... More

Dear M841, Thank-you for your recent review of CityTempo. I would just like to make clarification on a few of your review points as they may confuse potential bookers.

The apartment is in a great location - a short walk to federation square, flinders street etc. Great views as we stayed on the 23rd floor. Pros - Location Cleanliness Facilities Friendly & helpful staff Cons - Pay extra for wifi Air conditioning wasn't... More

Dear ali O, Thank-you for sharing your recent experience. It is a pleasure to read you enjoyed the friendly service from reception and concierge, also that you rated the apartment cleanliness highly.

I stayed for 2 nights in January 2015 arriving very early in the morning at 7am after a long flight from the UK. Despite check in not being guaranteed until 2pm I was delighted that they had a room ready for me so I could freshen up before setting out to explore. The location is great, just on the edge...

We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment for five nights in February 2015. Love the location of this hotel - close to everything, but not right in the centre of the city. City Tempo is always very clean, and staff always friendly and helpful. Great place to explore the city, which is in easy walking distance, with some great cafes nearby... More
