I stayed here for one night when I went to a show. It was easy to find and was within walking distance to everything. There is a room service (not internal) that you can phone. Nothing was too much trouble and I'd highly recommend City Tempo.

Stayed here for one night when attending an event at Etihad. Even though City Tempo is on the outer edge of the CDB, most inner city attractions are still within a walkable distance. Clean and well thought out studio apartment, perfectly adequate for a short stay. We were on the third floor and our our balcony looked at the brick... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights in February and absolutely loved it. The apartment we had was huge, equipped with a kitchen, washer and living room along with air conditioning in the living room and in the bedroom. It was super spacious and super clean. The location is great for the price you're paying, about a 10... More

We stayed at this hotel in Feb - it is in a convenient location, on the edge of the CBD, short walking distance to Queen Victoria Market, right where a lot of the universities are. Given it is located on the edge of the CBD, relatively quiet. The studio room itself is nice, queen bed, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher,... More

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
