My friend and I stayed at City Tempo apartments whilst on our girls weekend in Melbourne. We booked through the Discover Australia website and got an amazing deal, which included return flights and one night accommodation, bottle on wine on arrival and a free upgrade to a balcony room (small balcony, but great view of the street and night life)...

We arrived at City Tempo mid evening on a Friday. We had had our flights delayed and then ripped off by a cabbie who thought since picking us up from the airport could take us a route 20mins longer. When we arrived we casually told the lady checking us in and she was great. She apologised on behalf of the... More

I generally avoid serviced apartment but had to stay around that end of the city and wanted somewhere with a balcony. I was very surprised with the service and quality of the apartment. The bed was comfortable, the furnishings were high quality and the apartment had sufficient amenities. The check in staff were very quick and welcoming, the check out... More

The apartment was beautiful and clean. Everything was provided~ From toaster & jug to dish washing liquid to all the needed complimentarys. The hotel / apartment room was ready much earlier than usual and we were able to check in straight away. The location is convenient, right on the city circle free tram route and close to lots of restaurants.... More

I recently spent one night in Melbourne for a conference and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this serviced apartment for the price. The room was spotless, the staff were friendly and it is always worth having a kitchen at your disposable. I still had quite a bit of work to do and enjoyed making a quick simple dinner... More

I've stayed at several different locations in Melbourne and in various kinds of accommodation, but this is the one I will return to. The apartments are compact, clean, functional and well designed. A decent sized balcony, washing machine, helpful staff at reception and the great location were all big pluses. I think the wifi is too expensive but at least... More

Stayed here for a few nights and found the location to be very good to get around. You are a short walk to shops and restaurants and the main sections of the Melbourne CBD. Rooms are clean and tidy with a functional kitchenette. Did not have any issues with noise from neighbours or the street. Car parking close to the... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights. The location is great close to downtown Melbourne and the Markets. The room was nice and was clean and serviced every day. One complaint which is not exclusive to City Tempo but it seems most accomodation in Australia is internet access. $9.95 a day is ridiculous. Most other countries I have have... More

The room was well furnished with good facilities however it could have done with a second bin as there was only a small one in the bathroom and it would have been useful to have a clothes rack - we didn't use the washing machine as we had nowhere to hang wet clothes (most of our clothes were not suitable...

Returning for a second visit to the City Tempo, I am pleased to report that this property still excels for offering quality accommodation for a business overnight stay. If anything, I noticed a higher level of customer service than experienced in the previous visit. The apartments are located a short distance from the Hardware Lane eateries, however quality breakfast locations... More
