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

I enjoyed my stay – very convenient location, cozy rooms, friendly staffs, and a nice accommodating bar downstairs, with live music. However, they promised free Wi-Fi, but the network was almost inexistent. It didn't bother me much as I was out all day. The place could get a bit noisy, as it is close to an interstate bus terminal, Chinatown,... More

Dined here 3 times in a week. Food is as good as you get in a pub anywhere. Staff and locals are friendly, and a very good choice of beers on tap. Try their own made spring rolls- superb! There is a choices of a dining area as well as two bars and outside area( not so good as toilets... More

I found The Metropolitan Hotel in Adelaide by searching for a place to stay near the bus station. The hotel is right next door, across from the famous Market. Couldn't be in a better spot. Lovely, restored pub. Nice, clean interior. Fabulous food in the restauarant. Large, clean room at a rate I have not yet found anywhere else while... More

Again submariners of the association had gotten together for our 'AGM' but it is more like a social gathering. We were given sole use of the dining room in the centre of the pub, away from the noise of the road and the bar areas. The ladies enjoyed some bread entrees due to our 'gas-bagging' a little too much which... More

If the service in the dining room is anything to go by, don't even think about staying in a room here. Ordered food at 6.32pm... the two diners who ordered directly in front of us received their meals at 6.46pm... at 7.05pm after watching 3-5 bar staff including the apparent manager stand around behind the bar for most of the...

The Submarine Association Australia, South Australia Branch, regularly meet here at least twice per year and on each and every occasion we find the hotel staff friendly and efficient. The food is of good quality and always great value, even table service is provided when we have a dining function. Plenty of parking on-street, nearby and across the road in... More
