We arrived at the hotel at around 11:30am and was expecting to just leave our bags with concierge and head out for a walk and return when our room is ready after 2pm but the lovely Zoe at front desk was able to get us a room on Level 24. This is our 2nd time staying at the Metropol so... More

My husband and I had a lovely night at the Crown Metropole. The reception staff were very professional both on checking in and out. The room was lovely! It was a good size as it was a luxe room with a great view over Melbourne. The bathroom was wonderful. We were impressed with the design for the bathroom. We had... More

The rooms are great, very spacious and comfortable and service is also generally excellent however this place is seriously let down by the breakfast and especially the coffee situation. At about $270/night and being in Melbourne I expect good coffee at my breakfast. Instead for some bizarre reason they wheel out a couple of instant coffee machines in the breakfast... More

Rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff are unfailingly helpful and polite. Mr Hive Restaurant & Bar is always pleasant as is the bar on L28. I'm not sure about the orangey-brown carpet though and the shower is really disappointing - like something from a beachside fibro shack. Perhaps I've been spoilt though because I've stayed at Crown Towers,... More

Wow - One of the best hotels I have stayed in for service. Room was on the 17th floor and facing the city - wall to wall windows so the view is fantastic. Kids loved looking out at night. The hive was a fantastic full breakfast and they don't charge for the kids to eat. The Pool as seen in... More

This hotel was amazing. Its right in the center of the city close to everything. I suggest paying for a room that includes the breakfast and cocktails in the evening. The view from the top of the hotel is amazing. Also, the pool and hotub in this hotel is incredible. Its certainly dangerous being so close to the casino, but... More
