The location is great right next to Queen Victoria Market - the room is airy and bright, facilities are fantastic for serviced apartment. The bed was comfortable and the whole ambience was very good. I definitely recommend this accommodation.

I personally had a great stay. It's really central to a lot of museums, shopping areas, and amenities, including Queen Victoria Market. It's near the free city tram, and the museums. I basically walked everywhere from this location. The room I had came with a full kitchen and laundry machine/dryer, complimentary soaps. The bathroom was open so it's definitely a...

We had a 3 day stay here for a reunion. The staff are very friendly, the location is good close to the free trams which take you to almost anywhere you would want to go, and close to the market. The rooms are well appointed, modern,and very clean, with everything you could need. The only thing for us was that...

I would recommend staying at City Tempo on your next trip to Melbourne! Located on Queen street, it is an easy walk to the heart of the city (Collins street/Federation Square/Bourke Street Mall), and an even easier, shorter walk to both the famed Queen Victoria markets and trams on Elizabeth street to take you about the city (for free in...

The hotel is very well located at 100meters of free tramway and/or market, and about 200m of a nice street with little cafe and restaurants. Service is great, you can book day tours from the hotel and rooms are spacious well furnished and cleaned. Great hotel for a short break in Melbourne

Hi FarahSha, Thanks for sharing your initial experience upon check-in. Judging by your review I can read that you were quite upset we weren’t able to cater for your early arrival straight away. I have looked into the timing of what happened yesterday, and for clarification purposes I would like to share this for other readers of your review. You...

Room was small but had everything you could want, right down to a washing machine. Glad I was by myself as even with two people it would have been cramped (last time I stayed the room was far larger - luck of the draw I suppose). Gym was fine and location close to Vic Market and Melb Central is ideal....

Good location. Close to Lygon St, Hardware Lane, where there are plenty of restaurants & cafes. One block away from Elizabeth St where the free tram takes you into the heart of the city. Good convenience store across the road. Nice coffee shop on the ground floor. Comfortable beds. Clean and quiet. My room had no clock or radio. No...

Simple room, all the amenities, clean, functional, and most importantly everything works. Check in/out was simple, fast, and efficient. We were given an extra hour for checkout on Sunday, and they were happy to keep our bags for the rest of the day as our flight was later in the evening.

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.
