Initially, when we first arrived at the hotel (on a business trip), we were quite dissapointed because it looked like a one-star motel and if you're on a business trip, you would expect something more comfortable than this. Entering the room, I must admit I was taken aback by the deco of the room, it was so old-fashioned, but it was spacious (especially if you're staying alone), and the view of the Swan River and the city is fantastic. Previously when I came to Perth I stayed in the city, so staying in Metro Hotel, which is located in a residential area was quite dissapointing for me (although after a while we discovered that it is quite near to Mills Point Road, which has a few good restaurants).
The wireless Internet connection was horrendous, and after we complained a couple of times, the manager finally moved me to a higher floor and the reception was better. Although I did not ask for buffet breakfast (and it was not included in the hotel rate), the staff was kind enough to include it in as well, although the food served everyday was the same.
Overall, I think the hotel is pretty okay, and it is quiet (because it is in residential area). If I have my own transportation I would not mind staying here again, although if they refurbish the room and the lobby it would definitely give the hotel a good impression. That said, this hotel does grow on you (I've been staying here for a week now), and the hotel manager is a really friendly and is willing to help you as much as he can.
