This is the second time we have stayed at City Tempo and both times have not been disappointed. Service is very efficient and polite. The rooms are well serviced and clean. The location is close to public transport and easy walking distance to shops and CBD attractions.

Rooms are nice but not huge - suited my purpose as I was out most of the time. Clean - tidy - well equipped - quiet - good central location - I would have no hesitation in use them again. Checkin and checkout was pretty simple and staff took care of luggage as we arrived well before check in time.

Get it while it's hot. Made to measure 4 star which is starting to show wear and tear with the volumes coming through these rooms. they aren't that well cleaned but well appointed and located for the price you pay.There are pretty much no views just a modern student style accomodation to lay your head.

I stayed here with my partner in late July/early August for 3 nights. As others have said, don't be fooled by the small street frontage. Walking in, we were greeted immediately on arrival and throughout our stay, all the staff were exceptional in their service - even as to go as far as offering tips for great restaurants/bars. We arrived... More

Have been staying here for years due to the excellent reception staff. This time I was made very much welcome by Hamid and Sandy. Very helpful and full of smiles. They will try accommodate any request and always with a warm smile. However , my one complain is still the inconsistent Housekeeping standards. Check my reviews over the years on... More

Apartments are in a good location, close to Victoria markets and within walking distance of restaurants and the CBD. The rooms are clean and well equipped, providing all you need for self catering. Only criticism is you must be comfortable with your roommate since bathroom facilities, despite frosted glass, leave nothing to the imagination.

I needed 3 nights in the city. I probanly should hsve checked out the location a bit better because it was a bit too far north for my purpose but I am sure good for others particularly Vic Market fans. Room and bed were neat and clean and very serviceable. Easy access. The only downer was a lobby full of... More

This is the second time we've chosen this hotel for a weekend city getaway. The apartment was great. Clean and very well equipped. The only criticism is that the check-in and check-out process is slow and messy.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
