Nice one bedroom apartment. TV in the bedroom and in the lounge which was perfect. Small kitchen but perfect just for a few days.

Better than expected
An excellent well placed apartment with a seperate bedroom. Bathroom small but that was fine as plenty of room everywhere else. Great area of town to get around from.

Other than the bad experience I had in finding the carpark entrance due to the wrong directions from the building concierge who was handling late check-in for City Tempo, as well as the misleading address of the carpark (340 La Trobe Street printed on the carpark access card), my stay was good as the hotel location is very close to the main shopping and food areas, which is about 10-15 minutes walk. Room has a well equipped kitchenette and laundry. The writing desk is too cluttered with a hifi set blocking access to power outlets. Hotel management needs to do something about correctly describing the entrance to carpark (on Beckett Street instead of 340 La Trobe), and de-cluttering the writing desk and bedside table lamps.
