Accommodation is suitable for backpackers. Very small room with hardly any space to move around. Otherwise clean with necessary facilities. Location is good. Queen Victoria market is close by. No catering service but there are some cafes in the vicinity.

I've booked accommodation with city tempo because of positive experiences from others here at tripadvisor. I don't want to think that they are selective of who they treat well or give good rooms to, because from check-in to check-out we were very disappointed. Besides the receptionist looking disinterested in the lobby, the room given to us looked like it was...

I stayed at City Tempo for 4 days and 3 nights and the customer service I received from Sana was amazing. She gave me excellent recommendations for a tour and various things to do in the city. I was totally impressed by her willingness to be as informative as possible. She was a delightful person to have encountered and I...

We booked a studio apartment and were given a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment had great views on the 24th floor overlooking the Queen Victoria markets. The room was huge and clean and the best thing was the toilet paper! The toilet paper was so nice and soft, which is rare for hotel toilet paper! In room wifi is free...

Everything was great overall except for a loud beeping noise every now and again and throughout the nights that woke us up but other from that was good. Shower screen was basically see through, would be awkward if you stay their with family members.

The design of the room was efficient for the small studio balcony apartment. The location was fairly central and convenient and the price was competitive. I must preface my next comments with the fact that I stayed there back in March 2016 and perhaps my experience was unique and or corrected since that time. I found the room to be...

Stayed at City Tempo for 5 nights. Even though my room was facing Queen St, I slept well without any noise disturbances. Bed was really comfortable. Room was very clean too. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Only thing is I was slightly disappointed that I had to wait till 5mins to 2pm before they give me the key to my...

I had to stay here for a week in October. Had some major issues with the room I was given initially. I was so fed up I even considered leaving and would have, if it hadn't been for the timely intervention and help of the friendly staff mainly Saana who is a lovely and very helpful young lady, and Sanju....

A good location with the tram system, but at the other end of town for the action. But that was my choice. The staff were fantastic. Had issues with the key system but resolved very quickly. Room cleaned each morning and bed made each day - very comfortable. Wi-Fi was reliable and free (not like a lot of Sydney hotels)....

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
