Stayed at the Metropole for our initial stay in Melbourne and returned two weeks later. The hotel is situated on Brunswick street and convenient for the Gertrude st tram stop and Smith Street.
On our first visit we had a two bed appt with ensuite and second bathroom, kitchen & lounge area. This was great VFM at £90 pn. The room was clean with air con and very quiet considering the hotels location. We enjoyed our stay so much that we re-booked for our return to Melbourne two weeks later. Due to the short notice and the fact that we were returning during Melbourne cup week the price had increased and we had a different, smaller room. Although the accommodation was OK we experienced issues with housekeeping especially on Melbourne cup day itself which is a public holiday. we returned to our room to find that we hadn't received a visit from housekeeping at all as the bed was unmade, bins un-emptied, toiletries not replaced etc. We therefore had a double whammy of paying more for the room but not receiving such great service. This was a real shame as we found the hotel convenient, car parking ample and relatively quiet. i should add that reception were really helpful on our last day enabling us to use the car park after we'd checked out. Overall a great first stay and slightly disappointing on our return visit.
Thank Steve J

Thank you very much for your feedback on your recent stay at Metropole Central. Yes it is our company policy not to do daily services on public holidays. We have this written on the television and in the compendium in the room. We do have extra towels and amenities available at reception, if guests require anything additional. The prices are dynamic at the hotel, and do fluctuate according to occupancy. Without seeing your booking, i am sorry i cannot see whether you may have had a comp upgrade the first time or what may have been the case. It is disappointing that this spoiled your stay and i do hope you decide to revisit again and enjoy the beautiful Fitzroy area. Kind regards Gavin Wishnowski General Manager

Spacious, well equipped apartment accommodation with all the basics and very comfortable bedding. I was on a fold out bed and it was very comfortable.

The service from reception was excellent. Freindly, professional and responsive.
There is a restaurant onsite and room service available limited hours.

Great location. Can walk into the city in 15- WP mins, or tram. It's a 5 minute walk to the free tram zone.

There are many many excellent bars and dining options close by.

Highly recommend.
Thank Aussie252

Been a long time since was here. Here for a work function nearby. Truly huge room(living space and bedroom and bathroom) if staying for a while and close to all the places in Gertrude and Smith St (maybe 10 minutes walk).
However, lots of little staircases etc so if big cases for elderly etc might be a hassle.
Service a bit hit and miss but friendly.

Thank you very much for your feedback on your recent stay at Melbourne Metropole Central. We do appreciate the time you have taken to post this review. The rooms are a very big size and we are very close to Gertrude, Smith and Brunswick street. The area has so many things going on. We do have elevators to our apartments, however the townhouses do have stairs inside. We encourage any guests to request any requirements that are suitable. At Melbourne Metropole Central we do pride ourselves on service, so i am disappointed this was 'hit and miss' during your stay. I will continue to focus the team as this is paramount in any hotel. We do hope we see you again in the future and we do thank you for your feedback. Kind regards Gavin Wishnowski General Manager

I’m extemetely disappointed and upset with your Melbourne Metropole Central Hotel. My Partner is in hospital, recovering from surgery and myself wore out and looking after our tired 18 month old daughter. No way to travel home to country Victoria for the night so We book a room through their OFFICAL website and confirmation email received only to find out they had double booked our room. Manager(Paul Warry) only words were sorry can’t help you nothing I can do! Not in anyway did he try to help! Even joking what do you want me to do?? build another room for you! Now I have to find a room at the last minute with a tired baby and me being extremely upset!! No remorse no heart. Definitely do not recommend!! 😡

Luckly nice lady behind desk rang a nearby hotel Quest Royal Gardens serviced apartment who said they had availability and gave me discount rates because of my ordeal!

I find it very poor in this day and age a failure like this can happen. And what make it worse was the mangers total lack of care in the situation

Very clean and comfortable rooms. Conference centre staffed by friendly and attentive staff. Reception not quite up to speed with their welcome but answered all enquiries.
Restaurant supplies food efficiently but charge for espresso coffee when prepared coffee is available.
