“Great stay, excellent location.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Crown Metropol is part of the Crown Complex in Melbourne. It is a beautiful hotel with all the amentities you would expect at a 5* property. The room was spacious, modern, well maintained and clean. The bed was king size and comfy, The curtains opened with a remote control - nice touch!
We chose to breakfast in Mr Hive kitchen & bar each morning where you could choose a simple brekky and coffee at a resaonable price in a lovely atmosphere. Instead of spending $30 plus (each) at the buffet we spent $30 for coffee and a great bacon and egg sandwich each.
We loved the whole complex - great restaurants and bars everywhere and a 10 minute walk into the city mall and shopping.
We took advantage of the pool on level 27. A great space to relax and a large infinity pool that overlooked Melbourne.
This was a great stay and I will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: ask for a room on a high floor and a corner room if available.

I found this hotel functional, professional but charmless. And in some ways infuriating - for example valet parking is $50 whereas at Crown Promenade, run by the same company and using the same carpark, 250m down the road in the same complex, its $35. Do management think that customers don't notice this and don't feel ripped off?

Staff were fine without being good, room good without being great, pool area attractive but hot and sticky so not refreshing, no bath but a shower with poor water flow. The fine touches that you expect at this pricepoint are missing.

The hotel is very convenient for the myriad of things that go on at Crown complex and the southern side of the CBD. But there are great, not just OK, hotels in Melbourne for the same money.

Location was great as it was away from the casino just enough. Room was very quite,comfortable and beautifully designed.
Check in very helpful. Massage at Their Health Spa was top notch and well priced in a relaxing setting. Gym great and enough equipment suitable for most people (not Arnie!).
The pool looks fantastic but spoilt by too many screaming kids. No kid free times to attend, so it was disappointing that you get away from your own kids to be flustered by another's kid. Too noisy and this ruined the atmosphere compared to their promo image.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Hotel.

It is lovely to read that for the majority you enjoyed your stay with us. It is disappointing that your experience was marred by the atmosphere in the pool area. Whilst we do have attendants looking after the pool, it can become quite busy at different times of the year. I hope this did not affect your overall stay as we would love to see you back with us again.

Kind regards,

Lovely, little overpriced, good location, awesome pool, close to everything walking distance to city centre, restaurants are pricy, best leave the casino for that tidy clean rooms, could do with bigger shower head or 2 shower heads, a down step from crown towers but still a good hotel.

I stayed one night at crown metropol for my partners birthday and we both loved it! A beautiful hotel, it was very clean, the staff were lovely, a handy walk way into crown and a very comfortable bed!! My only negatives was for the price you pay to stay here you'd think wifi would be free which it wasn't and you'd think valet parking wouldn't cost $50 when you've already paid $400 for 1 night. And I wasn't told of the price for valet parking until they had taken my keys and my car away, so that made me quite disappointed. I wish I had of read the reviews on here about parking beforehand!!! But overall a nice experience if you can afford it. I would stay here again just not valet park!

Absolutely beautiful rooms...but for the price I had some annoyances...

Checking in there were huge lines of people checking out...including a guy without a shirt on, no shoes on and soaking wet shorts and children screaming around the reception area. Perhaps they need a separate line for people checking in?

There are children running around EVERYWHERE. Do not think for a second you will have a relaxing time by the pool. My friend had stayed at the hotel once before and had the same problem....I am not exaggerating when I say it was like a children's play centre. I believe children aren't allowed in the pool area after 6pm- but what's the point?

They market the hotel as 5 star...and I guess the hotel can't control who stays here- but something tells me that they must be offering rooms on discount websites judging from the cliental of screaming children, 20 something year olds returning from a musical festival and flight attendants from every airline imaginable checking in.

SO other than this....the rooms are spectacular, quiet and the staff will go out of their way to help you. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the city

I stayed here with my family members for one night in early Feb 2013. I booked via the Crown Casino website including breakfast at Mr Hive. The room was a double queen room. It was spacious, classy and very clean. The staff members were friendly and helpful. This hotel is attached to the Crown Casino Entertainment complex. If you want to party all night and play at the tables you'll definitely love this place. Check in and Check out was quick. For club members the parking is for free. The buffet breakfast at Mr Hive was good. All up for one night for 429 Aud was great value. This is my 3rd time to stay here and as per previous stay I thoroughly enjoyed it.
