“Definetly 5 star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

We have just come away from staying at the Crown Metropol. This hotel is definetly a 5 star hotel with customer service, room, cleanliness, layout and so forth. We were greeted warmly and were made to know the features of the hotel, where the pool etc was and accessibility to and from the Crown Casino. Our room was very spacious and was the cheapest on out of the other options, it was very modern looking and had a great selection of magazines and a newspaper on check out. I would say stay here if you are wanting a nice hotel. Thanks Crown Metropol we will be back!

Room Tip: Check out WOTIF for cheaper deal :)

Excellent quality is the overwhelming impression from this hotel.
Very modern, spacious double room, with great quality fixtures and fittings, linen and toiletries.
Probably the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in while at work in Melbourne - even the aircon was quieter than the average.
Easy access to MCEC where I was working and to the Crown facilities - shops, restaurant and entertainment etc. though I don't go to casinos I was still interested to look around.
Great pool and spa facilities. Travelling as a woman alone for business, it's quite important to me to feel comfortable, safe, get a good nights sleep and some exercise and I really loved my stay here. Check in was very friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Stayed for one night. Liked being able to drive up and leave the car for someone to drive away. A bit hard to find the entrance from the road however. Decor in the lobby, restaurant and elsewhere is elegantly modern. The room had a view of sorts but importantly, it was large with a lovely bathroom, great beds and good quality accessories. The restaurant was very well set up and I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast.

If you want to go to the Casino there is access to it, the shops and food courts through underground walkways from the Hotel - so no need to get wet or sunburned. It is close to the river but a good walk or tram ride from the central area of Collins and Bourke Streets. There are lots of restaurants easy to get to along South Bank river walk.

We stayed for one night in a quick overstay in Melbourne. The staff were very helpful, and location right in the heart of the city! Our room was perfect, very clean, good use of space and the King size bed to die for!!

Huge selection for Breakfast and even the kitchen staff were very lovely, nothing was a hassle. Will definately stay here again!!

I stayed for one night in a standard room, which was $250 a night. I must say the entry and reception areas are quite impressive. The room itself was large and the bed very comfortable. The view from my room was to the south, so it wasn't spectacular, however that was the only negative.

The casino itself is brilliant, significantly better than the newly renovated "The Star" in Sydney. We checked out Club 23, which was ok, but nothing special. We should've dined at Spice Temple, but didn't realise it was there until after we'd eaten.

Highly recommend (if you want to stay in a casino complex and not in the CBD).

Stayed in the loft room, was very pricey but has beautiful views and is a very nice room. Amazing bathroom and huge bath!! Room service food is much nicer now with the change in restaurant owners. Great location.
