Grrat location though noisy
Great apartments with everything you need and friendly service. The only issue is the loud ongoing noise at night time from 11pm to 7am coming from the nightclub across the street.

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.
DR J J, au2 night trip
Very good 8.0
The apartments are spacious. Great location for a Melbourne stay. Well equipped so you can be self sufficient, good kitchen (dish washer was not working), laundry facilities. A problem with the lifts but this was being repaired over a few weeks. I feel safe and comfortable staying here.

Beautifully clean apartment
Great apartments. We had a 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom apartment which was fantastic for 4 women getting ready! 😉 The whole apartment was so clean & had all necessary plates glasses & cutlery for a weeks stay. The security is great & there's a 24hr security person in the foyer & you could only access your own floor with the key remote - no other floors. So nice & safe. The only thing that was annoying was that we had to pay $15 per night extra for a room on a high floor. I don't consider floor 25 (out of 45) a high floor, and WHY the extra charge? The 25m indoor pool was great for doing laps but not meant for lazing around as there's no chairs or beds to lie on. Very close to Southern Cross train station. Overall very happy & highly recommend you stay here.
