We stayed here for 3 nights and left feeling very pleased. The rooms were spacious, well equipped and very generous in size. We had a great view of the pool and courtyard. The rooms are apartment size and equip with a kitchen so we could keep some of our own food for the stay. The staff were super helpful and...

An extended & large family gathering, chose the Metropole as the main base for accommodation for both Australian & International members. The receptionist stayed late on the first night to assist with late check -ins arriving from overseas, a standard that was maintained for the duration of the 8 night stay. Generous with their time, Staff assisted with outdoor lighting...

Comfortable room. Tram noise was a bit of an issue. Rooms clean. Parking below which was a bonus. Check out a bit clunky. Sunday morning office opens at 8am which for a busy person is a bit of an issue

I stay at the Metropole every time I visit Melbourne. The rooms are always presented to a high standard, the staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel is close to the CBD (walking distance anyway). I also have the buffet breakfast, $15.50 and really nice food. They upgraded me this time to a "spa suite" which was fantastic! Can't...

This is a very conveniently located hotel in Fitzroy, just a few minutes walk from St Vincents Hospital. The room I had was huge but a little drearily and sparsely furnished -- none of the furnishings were broken, but they weren't the quality I was expecting in a hotel this size. There were lots of different lights, a full wardrobe...

Great location in an interesting part of the city. Front desk staff were very helpful and recommended great eating places. Tram stop practically outside. Easy access to the CBD (15 mins away by tram) but also easy access to interesting shops and restaurants along Brunswick St and especially Smith St.

We used Metropole for its close proximity to St Vincents hospital - just a 4min walk away, and a comfy 12min walk to catch tram to city.
