Great Location

The rooms were quiet and had everything we needed for a short stay. Tea, coffee and biscuits each day was a welcome treat and dishwasher was a bonus. An issue at check out about the time we had to book out was something that could have been avoided with better communication, but did not impact on the quality of the apartment. I would stay at the City Tempo again and recommend it to others for a compact, pleasant place to stay.

Use the trams for best way to travel in and around Melbourne. We were there for a week and bought a Myki weekly pass which was very good value and allowed us to travel on the train and buses as well.

Base camp

Was in Melbourne for 7 days to attend my son's sporting events. Not too far from major shopping centre and Queen Vic markets, handy for trams as well. Best coffee I had in Melbourne was just downstairs, a real daily bonus! Too small if you were spending any length of time in the apartment, but fine as a base

Almost everything you need

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 5 days. It has everything you need. Other than the basic amenities, there's kitchenettes with pots, pans, plates, bowls and cutlery. To top it off, there's dish washer and washing machine and dryer. It may be slightly out of city centre but still within walking distance. Victoria Market is very near.

Great home away rom home

The experience was great at City Tempo. I stayed in the one bedroom apartment and it was just fantastic!. Quite spacious than expected with all the furnishings i.e. washer and dryer, dishwasher and cutlery. Very cute kitchenette area, when my partner and I chose to stay in one night rather than going out to eat. The staff were helpful and friendly. Check in was hassle free. Will definitely go back again

Melbourne City Getaway

Our travelling party was myself, my wife, and 4yo daughter. Room was good size, closer to a hotel room than a studio apartment. Kitchenette was well equipped for basic cooking. The shower glass frosting provides a revealing silloette, so make sure you travel with intimate people! Gym was small, but adequate. Had a very nice little sauna. IGA express across the road, and ABC chicken spot downstairs. About a 5-10 minute walk to the QV shopping centre. City Loop tram a minute walk. Staff was probably the highlight. Although very busy, they are very attentive and helpful (in fact all Melbourne seems to be very 'prepared' for tourists). Great value and highly recommended.

Free City Loop Tram is really close. Good to do a full lop (or two) to orientate yourself with the Melbourne 'grid' and to know places of interest.

Compact comfort

The studio apartment was just so well equipped - stove, oven, washer/dryer, dishwasher refrigerator -all packaged in clever design. We stayed a week and cooked every evening. This Hotel is so close to everything. Vic Markets, Aldi 2 blocks around the corner, free City Circle tram a block away, Melbourne Central 2 blocks away. Convenience store with liquor outlet across the road. It doesn't get much better than this.

For a cheap guided tour of Melbourne:Catch the Melbourne Visitor Shuttle bus from the end of the street outside Queen Victoria Markets. Stop 8. Ticket machine at the bus stop takes coins or credit cards. The best value for money and the friendliest local guide/driver. It runs 9:30 - last at 3:45pm and the full journey takes 90 mins. It has 13 stops altogether.

one bedroom fabulous - studio way too small

The studio room was well appointed, modern, clean and comfortable, but it was no bigger than a hotel room - and then it had a kitchen fitted into a corner. Every space was filled (vacuum cleaner, blanket, crockery etc) so there was very little space for suitcases etc. It was much too small for a couple (we thought) so we moved to the one-bedroom apt which was fabulous. Same modern, stylish decorating but there was a lounge area, good size kitchen and larger shower (plus wardrobes you could actually hang clothes up in!)...lovely accommodation. It was also very, very quiet. Staff were lovely, helpful and professional. Would definitely stay in the apartment again, but not the studio as we were tripping over each other!
