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

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!
