“lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Stayed at the Metro twice so far and its pretty good value- if you get a room with a view of the river it is the most amazing uninterrupted view of the city over the water. I am the type to only use the room at the end of the night for movies/tv, sleep and a cuppa and in that respect it is fantastic. For a weekend stay it's lovely.

Make sure you book a room overlooking Perth. An amazing view when you are sitting back relaxing and having a beer.
Location is idle when you have to go to more than one place
Transport right outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room looking west or overlooking the Swan River and the City of perth

What a great way to enjoy the Perth city skyline. Summer is here and our beers are icy cold.

I have stayed here frequently for business and find that it is a nice boutique style hotel perfectly suited to business travelers. It is close enough to town (Perth) to catch a cab with no hassles and is quiet most of the time (there is construction going on at the hotel). Many of the rooms have been renovated. Ask for a room on the Perth-side for awesome views of the City.
Quite a friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: City side for good views.

I stayed here for 4 nights while attending a course in South Perth. It is on a main road (Canning Hwy), and initially I was concerned about the potential traffic noise, but my room faced away from the road and was double glazed. it also had a lovely view across the river to the city skyline.
The hotel appears to be undergoing refurbishment, so there was a bit a construction site outside. The room I was allocated was modern and spacious and contained two queen beds, with room to spare. I found it very comfortable.
I ate breakfast at the hotel every day, and had dinner there once. The options were quite expensive. The only sit down dinner option was a buffet, which was delicious but a little too much. I could have opted for room service but this was still quite expensive. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance of hotel, on Mill Point Rd, or it is a short trip to the city - a $2 bus ride from out the front of the hotel if you're feeling adventurous!
Staff were friendly and helpful and a benefit to the place. it was also convenient to the airport, and for those travelers with cars, the hotel has free on-site parking. All in all, I was happy with service and have no problems recommending this hotel to other business travelers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road - these are quieter and have a lovely view of Perth city.

On arrival at check in I was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff, however I was a bit taken back by being requested for a photo ID, and and on presenting my New Zealand driver's licence being told that it was not acepted, could I show my passport? So I then had to open my suitcase on the foyer floor and find it. Come on! This is a 3 star local hotel, not exactly a gateway intenational hotel. Even at domestic airports in Australia my driver's licence has been acceptable ID, also at every other Australian hotel for that matter.

Having read previous reviews I requested a quiet room away from the highway, but I was assured that my room was now double glazed and traffic noise was no longer an issue. The check in staff were wrong on both counts! After a 12 hour night shift followed by a full day travelling I was looking forward to a long catch-up on sleep, and did not appreciate being woken by the morning rush hour from 7 am.

The room itself was "roomy" - three small rooms in fact, consisting of bedroom with double bed, lounge/kitchenette and bathroom. Confortable enough however a fairly recent freshening up of the decor does little to disguise the fact that the Metro is an aging building and somewhat outdated. It was warm enough too due to an elderly and somewhat noisy AC unit set into the wall. The bathroom was clean enough but there is nowhere in the shower to place soap or shampoo and the two piece sliding shower door looks like an original fixture and tended to stick and come off its tracks.

The "bar" is a add-in affair of separate units cobbled together in one corner of the foyer, and featured a very friendly young barman who mysteriously appeared via a diferent route to show me to my seat in the dining room.

The dining room is rather dingy and cluttered, and I have to say that I was not at all impressed with the smorgasbord on offer that night, or the breakfast next morning.

The one redeeming feature of my stay is the friendly staff who were very helpful on each occasion I asked for assistance.

One thing I must add is that I would not like to be in this hotel in the event of a fire. There are no sprinklers in the rooms or in the corridors, and although there is a brick escape stairway with fire doors at one end, the other end features a completely open full hieght stair well which would allow a fire starting on a lower floor to very quickly spread through the building.

Room Tip: Ask for the other side of the building from Canning Highway and if told your room has double glazing...

Generous room sizes, amazing views, and friendly staff! Comfy beds just stayed 1 night and really enjoyed watching the sunrise over perth. The restaurant is really the only downfall with alot left to be desired from the buffet menu which is nothing to be excited about but at least for the money you can eat as much as you want. Only notices afterwards the have a bar menu which looks alot more satisfying. The staff here are very accompanying and always have a smile. Come for the views won't be dissapointed!

Thank you for your response.

We are very fortunate to have amazing views and wonderful staff and enjoy sharing this with our guests. The hotel is currently undergoing a major building development which will include new kitchen facilities. Once the development is completed we will be able to offer our guests a la carte meals from our state of the art kitchen.

We stayed for 2 nights and Check in staff was welcoming and was assuring when i called to say that we were checking in later than usual.

Was initially really happy with my choice of hotel as the room was newly furbished and there was some view of the City skyline. The television also came with free movie streaming for adults & children.

Our room came with 2 kings. Despite the 2 king beds, room was still very spacious.

What was dissapointing was that I was not told during my check in that the baby cot was not complimentary and cost AUD 15 per night. I was quite shocked since cots were complimentary. The baby cot was actually a "play pen". It was back breaking each time I had to bend over to place my sleeping 5 month old in it. It also did not come with a proper mattress, the board was wrapped the board with some linen.

What attracted me was the free parking as well as the fact that it was near perth cbd and the international airport (abt 20 mins by car).
