Stayed here for three nights. A very nice apartment with kitchenette. Room was very clean. Kitchen was equipt for light cooking. The room had adequate space for two. Free fast WiFi. Located in Melbourne CBD very close to the Queen Victoria Market and trams (which are free in a limited area of the CBD!).

5minute walk and you're right amongst the busy streets full of shops and restaurants. Also close enough to be able to walk to Flinders St Station, trams, etc. Room was clean and comfortable. Great for a weekend away.

I booked the City Tempo through an online hub because of three reasons. 1 - the location looked central, or central enough. 2 - the photos looked good, it looked stylish and modern. 3 - the rate was excellent for the 2 nights I was staying in Melbourne. And on all 3 criteria, this short stay accommodation was good. It... More

My Partner picked this hotel near Queen Vic Market. We had a balcony room which overlooked the docklands area with the Ferris wheel. The room was Clean, reception staff were helpful on the front desk, and two lots of car parking close by. Would stay again.

This was our second stay at City Tempo, we go to Melbourne quite a lot and have stayed at several different hotels. This Hotel ticks all the boxes, best value for money. We stayed 5 nights from when we arrived till when we left it was so easy and very comfortable. Location is great and nice and quiet.

If Wifi is not important then everything is just excellent. I took my laptop along because Iit says that there is wifi in the room. Also during checkin I was again informed there is wifi with the password given to me. But sadly, during my stay for 6 nites there, the wifi was non existence.

Dear jerrylowyl, Thank-you for your recent review of City Tempo. Please accept our sincerest apologies you had difficulty connecting to the WiFi network. There was no disruption to our service that would have resulted in an outage for the duration of your stay, however there was a minor temporary outage for a small number of apartments on the 14th September...

Stayed here 6 nights 6th-12th. We booked the standard Studio Apartment. We were greeted by a lovely man who got us our room passes and all set up and off we went, the room had a very smart set up kitchenette/washer/dryer on the right bath room on the left and bed&desk right in front of that. Bathroom was very spacious... More

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.
