For a quick overnight stay whilst en route to another location this was cheap but clean hotel. Could use some air con though and access to tea/coffee facilities. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Otherwise it's a handy location in the CBD and right on the bus service for the airport and Premier Stateliner. Noise on a band night is on... More

I have to admit to being a big fan of staying in Aussie Pubs, having spent a lot of years living 21 meals for construction work around the country. This is your typical friendly pub, basic accommodation at a good value. Location is great with in house dinner available or the central market over the road for options. If you... More

My band Tequila Mockingbyrd and I always choose to stay here when playing in Adelaide. It's central, comfortable and clean. The balcony overlooking the Adelaide Central Markets is really nice. The staff are friendly and the rooms are affordable. Will be back!

No double glazing, a new nightclubs spill over table in the car park below. No a/c or working WiFi in the room. No access to tea of coffee making equipment out of their opening hours. Great place to stay if you are too drunk to drive home. I've stayed in better caravans, worse than basic rooms.

Submariners reunited for another 'AGM' and only a couple disappointments; but given sole use of the outer dining room, makes for a good time. We were temporarily disturbed by a rubbish truck out the back (on a Sunday?) but only for a short-time. The meals after the AGM were not less than FIRST-CLASS, I had the Chicken Pie from the...

Stayed here just wanting a bed for the night, and that is what I got... no more, no less! Its a nice old building and has beer, but a 4 star hotel it is not. It is ok, to rest your head if on a budget. Close to market, tram, shops and mall... good location.

Check in was slow, hard to find amongst the pub! Rooms very old. Lots of noisy traffic outside, and balcony door wouldn't shut properly. Shared bathrooms dirty and not nice at all. Location great. Don't think i'd stay here again.

For my first meal in Adelaide, eating at the pub downstairs of the Hotel Metropolitan left me with a very good impression of the food that I am to discover in the city over the next week as well as the friendliness of the people. The pub reminds me of the British gastropubs, but the food was inventive and definitely... More
