Love the pool

Enjoyed the stay & would come back again. Great location & loved the pool. Unfortunately our room was not very clean at all in that there was a child's ball under the couch so it clearly hadn't been cleaned & the coffee table was filthy with spilt food & chocolate milk spilt on it & dried in. Overlooking these, the rest of the room was neat & tidy & we were overall happy with our night there, the view & facilities.

Fantastic experience

From the moment we gave the car keys to be valet parked, we were impressed, staff were very friendly, when booking in during a friendly chat with staff, we mentioned we were in Melbourne for a birthday and we were given a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and a late checkout of 12 midday - what a treat, meeting staff in the lift we were given a Happy Mothers day and a general chat, very friendly. Our room overlooked the city and was very clean and fresh. We visited the pool, which was fabulous, even though it filled with young children, there was sufficient room to relax. When we left to attend our show, the staff assisted us to source a suitable tram to board and gave advice on returning to the hotel once the show finished. We had breakfast the next day in Mr Hive and the staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was a bother. I would recommend the Metropol to any traveller, from staff to amenities, it was an outstanding stay. Thank you

Great service

Free WiFi would have been ideal, but overall this hotel was great for what we wanted, and the service was excellent. I did order a steak from room service that was ice cold though.
