Good location - 2 minutes to Victoria Markets and 10 minutes to Myer, DJ, etc. Despite being the in CBD it's not in the noisy place. Clean place. The apartments are tiny, but not claustrophobic, basic necessary things are provided, though be careful not to drop things as the cooking space is almost non-existent. Shower was a plastic curtain, which... More

Stayed in room 2312, one bedroom with one 2 way bathroom. Beautiful view over flagstaff park. Rooms are well designed & even though this seems like a smaller 1bed accommodation we never felt like it was too small. The bed was comfortable & 2 good quality pillows to choose from. During our stay we did not hear any other rooms/guests... More

Stayed in a studio apartment with no balcony. The room was compact but did contain everything needed for an overnight stay. Even on the 10th floor it was still very noisy, even with the window shut. The kitchenette was small but well appointed. Bed passable but certainly not luxurious. The bathroom again compact but again contained everything required including a... More

Dear Albywon, Thank-you for your recent review of CityTempo. It is a pleasure to read you enjoyed the functionality of the Tempo Studio apartment. This room type is also popular with our extended stay guests, as it provides all the essentials one could require. From a well maintained and clean apartment in a great location, to a modestly equipped kitchen,... More

The service we received from the staff here was excellent and the room was small but serviceable. Only letdowns were the broken toiletry holder in the bathroom which kept falling off and the bathroom tap which swivelled around as it was not affixed properly. Overall a good place to stay.

We stayed at City Tempo for 4 nights. As there's no train to the city centre your cheapest option is to take the 'Sky Bus', this runs 24 hours a day and is $18 one way, it drops you at 'Southern Cross Station', Then the same bus company offer you a free transfer directly to ANY hotel in the city...

If you want a nice place to sleep and happy with the trams to get around. It's a good place, cosy but it is the city where space is a premium. Like the sheets. Balcony a bonus and let the city vibes in.

I have stayed here twice now and will be staying again for 10 days in November. I have not had an issue yet with the rooms I have been allocated or the staff. I request a room higher up so I don't have to listen to traffic on the street and I get the balcony rooms so I can take... More

I have planned to stay at Melbourne for 5 nights and 3 of which I have stayed at Hilton at South Wharf. I have an early flight the last morning and so want to stay somewhere a bit cheaper and can take the shuttle to the airport without any hussle. There are many room types in City Tempo. The cheapest... More

Clean and neat rooms with balcony and aircon/heater in each room. Whilst we were there they promptly had a light fixed with a manager in the room to ensure our belongings were safe. Cheap parking option avaliable which we utelized. Quiet whilst sleeping and during the day even though on the edge of the CBD and right beside the Queen... More
