4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

A group of mates came to Melbourne for the World Cup Cricket final and could not have chosen a better place to stay. A well positioned 3 bedroom apartment that suited our needs admirably. 668 Bourke Street is close to Spencer Street and city trams making getting around Melbourne very easy. Good rates. Will return.

My friend & I stayed from 22/3/2015 to 26/3/2015. Very comfortable & clean place to rest. 5-8mins walk to Queen Vic.Market & CBD. 20mins walk to RMIT, Victoria University & Flinders street. The thing that we don't like is the toilet (can see my shadow thru the bedroom when I bath..I've to switch off the light) & at night you... More

We stayed in a studio apartment for three nights. We were on the 2nd floor. Our unit was quite large, queen size bed with an excellent kitchenette. We also had a hi fi system, washing machine, dishwasher and ironing board. The room was large enough to accommodate a desk and a twin sofa. TV had limited cable and local channels.... More

We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights. The apartment was comfortable and well located. There are many great restaurants nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only issue was the whistling in the room when it gets really windy besides this I would highly recommend this apartment.

We stayed at city tempo in the last week of February 2015. To sum up my experience, it was a fit for purpose, budget accomodation that delivered what was promised. Comfort: We got a top floor room with a balcony. The room came with a fully equipped kitchen (induction stove, utensils, microwave, cutlery etc). It did look like a lot... More

Whilst the staff are nice enough there's a design fault with all the apartments in this building. When the wind blows through the building, which it does with great regularity, it creates a high pitch whistling noise through each & every apartment. The management will tell you that it's unusual but each apartment includes a draft excluder (a kind of... More

The apartment was spacious, comfortable and well lit. The design is intelligent and gives room to move. We were particularly impressed with the excellent reading lamps. City Tempo is well situated to Queen Victoria Markets and buses that run right past the Melbourne Recital Centre on Southbank. There is an outstandingt coffee cafe downstairs. The staff were very efficient and... More

We stayed at this property for 3 nights. The location is central, on the outer edge of the CBD. It is less than a 5min walk to the free tram zone. We arrived early to see if we could leave our bags and check in later. The lady on the reception, who was very nice informed us we could check... More

Arrived early - dealt with us very well. Texted us when the room was ready. Exceptionally comfortable bed. Great white goods - fridge, dishwasher, dryer/washing machine. Superb shower!!! Weird though - when it was windy the breeze literally shook the room. However, for price, location, service I would stay there again - actually will be in the summer!

Booked this hotel based on the reviews from trip advisor and I was not disappointed. The location was excellent! It was walking distance to all main sights and shopping areas in the city. 5 minutes walk to Melbourne Central. And if you don't feel like walking, it is located within the free tram zone. :) There is a cafe just... More
