              Excellent Stay - Great Value For Money!”

              My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in February 2020 and we highly recommend staying here. While you are not in the very center of the city, you are only a short walk away and it is much quieter. We stayed in the studio apartment and it was very spacious and the bedroom was amazing with plenty of glass. This is also right next door to a Coles which is just a few hundred meters away, so groceries are easy to grab. If you are a light sleeper they also provide earplugs as there was a construction site next door at the time but this didn't bother us. Also, the glass in the bedroom means some of the street light from outside comes in, so again, not ideal for a light sleeper. The staff were really friendly and very accomodating. Overall this was a fantastic experience and a great introduction to Melbourne!

              A great place to stay”

              I highly recommend City Tempo as an excellent place to stay within the downtown CBD area of Melbourne. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in a lovely apartment that was really well appointed, and included all I needed to make my stay so pleasant. The apartment was very room with good quality furnishings, spotlessly clean and a really nice environment .

              To begin with the Staff in Melbourne 1 Bldg. on Lonsdale was very accomodating and friendly especially the Front Desk Staff named Chris. Ibrahim of Melbourne One Front Desk was very accommodating as well. The place was clean, elevators were fast & we felt at home. There was just the noise from the construction area during our stay but all was good. The location is within the CBD Tram area which was very convenient for tourists. Take the Free Tram #58 from Lonsdale (3 stops away) or from Flagstaff (2 stops) to Queen Victoria Market. You can also walk to QVM from the hotel. You can also take the free tram to the shopping areas, Aquarium, Zoo and other tourists areas. Just across are Coles and Spencer Outlet, Southern Cross Station, restaurants and coffee shops are nearby. Cleaning service can only be availed if you stay for atleast 1 week but you can request for fresh towels and other needs, make sure to request at daytime to get it on the same day. Will definitely book here again!

              Alright stay”

              Relatively clean apartment - toilet, bedroom and living area. But found that the comforter has black marks on them, and a couple of towels are stained. Not sure if they wash the towels and comforter on every turnaround of the room. Well-equipped kitchen - with oven, microwave oven, stove, pots, crockery and utensils. Equipped with a dryer and washing machine. Comes with two small packets of detergent. However you can see that the filter of the dryer isn’t cleaned regularly as dirt are trapped in there. I stayed in a one bedroom apartment. Surprised to find that there isn’t AC in the bedroom. So had to open the bedroom door to let the AC from the living room in. Was cooling enough though. Stayed for eight nights and had housekeeping once. That is alright as I wasn’t expecting any Housekeeping service. The iron was damaged. So had to request for a new one. All in all, hope that the housekeepers are more meticulous about cleanliness.

              Great location, spacious apartment, quiet even though we were staying on the 10th floor only. Comfortable bed, not too soft.. the block we were staying in had 3 lifts, came very fast everytime! Great experience will stay again. Only con was we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment, we booked a 2 bedroom but had a swipe my credit card for a $500 security deposit . For the 1 and 2 bedroom only had to pay a $100 security deposit. As we just checked out have not checked if they have refunded us the $500 deposit swiped on my card.

              Asthmatics, be aware”

              Value for money, location, staff and the facilities are excellent but the only issue I had was due to the cleanliness of the apartment. When we first arrived the apartment smelt dusty. We were fortunate enough to have balconies so we hoped airing it out would help. Upon farther inspection we could see and feel that the carpet had not been vacuumed thoroughly. Thankfully, we had a vacuum cleaner in the apartment and proceeded to vacuum the entire place. This helped immensely especially for the asthmatic person in our group. Housekeeping came through mid week. As we suspected, everything was cleaned correctly except for the carpet. The living room was swiped approximate 5 times and the bedrooms were probably only swiped 3 times before they turned the vacuum off and left the apartment. This is after we told them to do it thoroughly as one of us had asthma. I truly think that if we weren't there, the cleaners probably wouldn't even have taken the vacuum out!

              Excellent location, excellent property with some minor drawbacks”

              Pro: Modern facility, excellent location, convenient parking in the same building. Con: The real address to the property is on Little Lonsdale Street, and the real address to the reception is on Merriman Lane. Why tell clients you're on Lonsdale Street when you clearly aren't? Speaking from my experience, I had to get out of the car to find the true location of the property, and it was NOT FUN wasting my time on Lonsdale Street during heavy rain. It was completely avoidable. Lost a point on Location for this reason. Generally quite clean, but our room was next to a garbage chute so the outside of the property smelled bad, good thing the inside is odour-free. Lost a point on Cleanliness because of the garbage chute.

              We were in the 2br apartment with 2 bathrooms, which was nice and big. Location is convenient, with Spencer Street station less than a 5min walk away. Building also had secured parking which can be paid for separately, so that's great as we had a rental car. No tram lines on Lonsdale itself, so nearest is a block down on Bourke Street. Very friendly staff and accommodating! Will definitely stay here again on our next trip.
