Fix the elevator :)
Room was good however having to wait minimum 10 minutes everytime we wanted to use the elevator was very frustrating

Great apartment in great location
We stayed four nights in a two bedroom unit as we were upgraded being Gold customers.The apartment is situated in a great location. Bed was comfortable with decent pillows. The bathroom was clean and modern with washer/dryer. Kitchen had everything we needed. No housekeeping whilst we were there however there’s a vacuum cleaner and a broom if you feel like doing housework. I didn’t! Would recommend,

Clean, well-priced and comfortable
Upgraded rooms are comfortable and functional. Well recommend people to check in before 7pm otherwise you will get trouble to figure out the hotel facilities. The location is not excellent but Southern Cross station is not so far. Takes 5 minutes walk.

Lovely apartment, excellent value
We loved our stay at City Tempo. The apartment was beautifully appointed with everything we could possibly have needed or wanted. The view from our 29th floor unit was gorgeous, check in staff efficient and welcoming, the location very convenient. As we had to wait all of five minutes for the apartment to be declared ready for us, we were given a complimentary bottle of wine. We we certainly impressed and will stay at City Tempo again.

Poor 2.0
not Happy , will not come back
Getting to car park is such a pain, you need to park in a 5 min zone and run to the reception, which is confusing to find as they are selling some of the apartment of the hotel complex. They do not have daily house keeping, and that is not even mentioned in small print. So if you are staying more than one night it is not recommended. But the room itself was ok. location is good if you are not having a car. Overall not worth what you pay for.
