Metro Apartments on Bank Place
Ranked #112 of 160 Hotels in Melbourne
Reviewed December 6, 2011

I stayed here overnight and found it to be of excellent value. I booked a one bedroom apartment and was put on the 3rd floor at the front of the building. The room was pretty big with high ceilings and plenty of room for 2 people. Checking in and out was pretty quick and the staff were friendly. I did ask to be put on the quiet side of the building but found that the front wasn't the quiet side as in the morning I was woken up by the street cleaner.All in all however it was in an excellent location, only minutes from everything and well worth the money I paid

Have stayed here a couple of times for work, I would say the hotel is good quality budget accomodation with character. Brilliant location in one of Melbournes old laneways, with a couple of good restaurants and great old pub only a few steps away. Downside is it has small laneways on each side where dumpsters and or rubbish bins are located, these are being filled and emptied at all hours so be aware. Check in staff have always been pretty friendly in my case. Dont expect the world at the price but you cannot go past the location.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room

Fantastic location, walking distance to most things. Easiest booking experience in some time. Everything was taken care of. Parking was cheaper through metro and everything was organised perfectly. Traveled with partner and son and even fold out bed and all extras ready in room which usually doesn't happen at so many places we have stayed. Staff were helpful with directions and even cleaned on the second day of our stay. Highly recommend staff very helpful. Location is fabulous close to many attractions, and restaurants. Room was clean and had plenty of room for son. For shopping trip, city appointment/meeting, or just a city getaway, this is the perfect location with wonderful hospitality

The Metro Apartments at Bank Place are definitely a great place to stay in Melbourne should you require a great place to rest your head whilst still be central to the events and places that Melbourne City has to offer.

With shops, convenience stores, shopping centres and really close access to the Tram network, this hotel has definitely got the geographical location to its advantage.

The service provided is exceptional. From my initial queries, the duration of my stay and straight through to the checkout day, the front desk staff have been very conversational and assisted myself in getting to places.

The rooms are quite spacious (I’ve stayed in a one-bedroom suite) with enough space to store away the luggage and the clothes. With a washer/dryer available, we were able to wash our clothes during the trip which we required because of our long stay.

The bathrooms have a modern-chic design to it.

Housekeeping staff was very helpful.

If you are a traveller that requires a great bed without the added frills of luxury, a gym and room service, then this place is definitely a gem.

Overall, we’ve experienced positive upbeat personalities within a wonderful hotel; would consider staying here in our next Melbourne trip.

Room Tip: Request for a high room weeks prior to check in if you are noise sensitive as this central location...

Certainly the location is good, within one city block of the centre of Melbourne town. This is my second time I've stayed there, but next time I'll try elsewhere as the rooms are totally airless due to double glazing and no ducting to bring in fresh air (except the stove range hood air extraction and the shower recess air extraction). This time I stayed in a single room which included the kitchen, however there isn't the room for more than one suitcase. Average cost some $153 per night, including the higher cost of a weekend. (The last time I lashed out and had a separate lounge room off the bedroom but that was only with a big discount available.) The staff were helpful indeed.

Good location, walking distance to most things in or around the CBD, although Taxi's seem to have no idea where it is!!

Wasn't too sure whether to give it a 3 or a 4 but went for a 4 in the end due to the price compared to other hotels in the area.

Hotel is meant to be a 4 star and I guess it is, however it doesnt "look" like one. Rooms lack style, look a bit basic/old and the room is poorly lit, however it is clean.

Staff were very friendly and helpful and also upgraded me on my arrival from a normal hotel room to a one bedroom studio.

Had no issues with noise unlike some of the other reviews but then I was staying midweek for 4 nights. I wouldn't rule out staying here again considering the price and the area it is in.

Good location as in close to city etc but with night clubs and bars surrounding it, it is impossible to sleep on Friday and Saturday nights. Also the noise from the rubbish being collected during the night is excruciatingly loud. We slept with all windows closed but were still kept awake both nights. Also the room was very very cold - again with no windows open and of course no air con used.
Stayed 4 nights but room was only serviced properly once, and that was before we got there. After that, not done again properly for our entire stay and no cleaning etc at all on Sundays.

Only upside is that the staff at reception are exceptional - extremely friendly and helpful.
Wouldn't stay again though.
