This is a decent pub/accommodation base, charged at a decent rate, in Adelaide. The single rooms are basic with bed, single wardrobe, dresser and chair. They are, however, very clean and comfortable. The bar downstairs has two sides, so can be lively or quiet as desired. The food on offer is tasty, and range of beers available good. It's definitely... More

I visited the Hotel Metropolitan on two occasions and was impressed with the friendly service, warm environment, cold Coopers Beer and great steaks and innovative side dishes provided by this hotel. The fact that the steaks come fresh daily (according to staff) from across the road at the markets is probably a big factor in their superb quality.

Stayed there for a couple of nights back in later June and found the Manager to be fine but the night time care taker who was in his 60's was the contrary. Because I'm from Aboriginal decent I remember he would look at me when crossing paths as though I was S€^t under his feet. Also from his body language... More

Great beers on tap, hip tunes playing, warm friendly vibe. I love the fact it's still got a heap of the history on the walls and some old school charm. I'm so sick of renovated pubs with chrome, glass and fake stone everywhere. This is effortlessly charming and they have awesome beers on tap. Cute, cosy and classy on a... More

Returned for another meeting of our Association and had exclusive use of the private room out-back. Not sure if was before, but lovely wood-fire stove burning and warmed the place through lovely. Meals were excellent, my skippy was just plain gorgeous, and judging by the lack of remnants from other meals, all was absolutely good. Well done, Metropolitan, you look... More

Fantastic location across the road from Adelaide Central Market Clean room for a budget price. $65 for a single with common bathroom A better option than paying the same price for a private room at a hostel, maintenance and cleanliness is superior.

I found this pub + accommodation by luck. I am in love with the place. The pub food, the live music, and the friendly staff are what make it great. Rooms are no frills but convenient and clean. Centrally located with tram, train, and bus stops as well as many of Adelaide's restaurants, tourist attractions, night life within walking distance.... More

I visited the hotel for a drink and nibbles on NYE to get the celebrations underway. We sat out in the sun in their outdoor area - can be noisy with passing traffic however the multiple tables of other patrons gave a great atmosphere. We had wedges - massive bowl with sweet chilli and sour cream which was reasonably priced.... More
