The Metropol is in a great location and is a part own the crown complex. Easy access to the casino and to south bank. The rooms are very generous in size and very comfortable. For once my wife could not find one thing to complain about, a miracle ;)

Stayed for one night in a deluxe city room. A little disappointed that the room we paid for promised a view but we were overlooking a car park. The rest of the stay however, outweighed this negative start. Beds are super comfortable, and the staff are wonderful especially since it's such a large hotel and things can easily be overlooked....

A very well presented large hotel whose rooms are very large. With a sixties feel, the room had sliding panels which opened the bathroom into the bedroom area - great for watching TV while dressing. The room has all facilities you would expect and had a great view over the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. Breakfast was comprehensive, but the restaurant very... More

Great location, within walking distance to Tram stop, can walk to Melbourne CBD. Colonial Tramcar Diner stops just down the road. Lots of restaurants and shopping without even going outside. Lovely decor, nice clean and modern room. Housekeeping is excellent, reception staff and valets friendly and helpful. Like this hotel would definitely go back.

I have stayed here numerous times for business, and have always been happy with the rooms I have stayed in. This trip, I had just spent 5 days in hospital after surgery, and wanted a night in luxury before heading home. I know the Metropol is not for those on a tight budget, but sometimes you need to spoil yourself.... More

We stayed over the weekend and had such a lovely stay. This is by far one of the best hotels we have stayed. The place was spotless and the staff at the check-in desk were very friendly. I stayed with my husband and two small children. It was perfect for us. The weather outside was cold and windy but because... More

For a purported high end hotel, the customer service at the crown metropol leaves a lot to be desired. From being held up at the check-in whilst they "check" your room, even after you have given them pre notice of arrival, to the lack of the attention to detail and having to remind staffs as to the lack of complimentary...
