4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Stayed at City Tempo for five nights. Skybus has a drop-off point at the apartment so transportation to and from the airport was easy enough. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was no free Wifi for this establishment which I thought was a bit lacking. Queen Victoria Market is just five minutes away which was great for food and... More

Stayed here for several days in October (had a 1 bedroom). A colleague was in a studio and they are quite small. Maybe ok for a couple of nights, but would be cramped for more than one person. Room was clean and had a tv in both the "living room" and the bedroom. Bathroom was very small. I had a... More

I stayed here recently for 3 nights. After reading such good reviews I was looking forward to my stay. From check in I knew that it was a mistake booking. Staff were absolutely idiotic and completely clueless. We arrived 15 mins before 2pm check in and were told we'd have to wait until 2pm which is fair enough. However 2pm... More

Hi Bubblez1, Thank-you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I would like to sincerely apologise regarding the delay you received on check-in. Such delays are extremely infrequent as the team follow an early arrival procedure to have all guests settled in their apartment as soon as possible. I am unsure what caused the delay, however the...
