Bunbury, Australia
Reviewed 24 April 2016

City Tempo is conveniently located in the CBD. It has all the facilities we needed for our 4 day stay. The apartment was modern, it had kitchen facilities, bathroom sink area small but nonetheless fine. Great to have a combined washing machine and dryer. It was quiet and most importantly the staff were most helpful.

Great location, close to trams & walking distance from CBD, although being on the 2nd floor was noisy when the window was open. Very well set up studio apartment with modern decor & great kitchen area - even had a dishdrawer & washing machine/dryer! Comfortable bed but slept badly due to noisy air conditioner. Shower & white desk chair could've...

We stayed here for 7 nights. It was sparkling clean and efficient. Two TVs, good kitchen, well-stocked. We had a balcony room with a nice view from 14th floor. Maid service daily was great. We were one block from Victoria Market, and one block from the free city tram. Washer/dryer combo was very helpful. We'd stay here again for sure.

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The location of the accommodation was convenient for access to Queen Victoria Markets, shopping and many other attractions in the city. The apartment was well appointed and comfortable and very clean. The only issue was the check in process. We weren't told prior to arrival that credit card surcharges applied...

We booked this accommodation/flight package through Discover Australia. I've been to Melbourne a few times and have stayed in more ambient accommodation. This place is okay for an overnighter possibly, but we didn't find the room welcoming. Room 307 is mainly setup for a person with a disability, which is great if you need the room for a wheelchair in...

I was very happy with me stay here. Right from check in the service was friendly and helpful. I was on level 4 in a studio apartment with a balcony, it was clean and everything I wanted and expected.

The location is close to the town center and only few minutes to the Queen Victoria Market. The room is clean, modern decoration and comfortable. We have surprised that the room was upgraded to the top floor with balcony and excellent city view. Highly recommended.

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.
