Stayed here for a few nights on our honeymoon. At the time, there were only a few reviews here because it was quite new. We really liked how it was located near to the shopping mall, so we could go and watch a movie. There was an excellent pizza place across the street from the mall, which was good enough that we went back for a second meal! However, you will need a car if you stay here as it is about 10-15 minutes by car from the downtown Christchurch area.

This place is set up like a motel with outside entrances and 2 levels. The rooms are decorated in a cool modern style, although they are a bit on the small side. The rooms look just like the photos on the internet.

We found the Metropolitan an ideal location for the Trans Apline Train Journey and very near the new shopping centre. The units were modern and spotless with all the facilities you would require in a studio unit. The Manager James was extremely welcoming, helpful and informative during our stay. The beds were excellent and made for a good nights sleep. We ordered the continental breakfast which was good value and delivered the previous night so it was there whatever time you required it. We would certainly recommend this motel for a very reasonable stay in Christchurch.

Nice and clean and modern apartments although a little small. Couldn`t find fault with this property though. Friendly helpful staff. 100 metres from the HUGE shopping centre. Cost us (NZ) $20.00 to get to the train station.
Great stay!
