This is a very conveniently located hotel in Fitzroy, just a few minutes walk from St Vincents Hospital. The room I had was huge but a little drearily and sparsely furnished -- none of the furnishings were broken, but they weren't the quality I was expecting in a hotel this size. There were lots of different lights, a full wardrobe...

I stayed at Metropole in December 2016. Booked my room through Booking.com. When I checked out I was told I had to pay (after asking if my credit card would be automatically charged). I went ahead and paid and a few days after checking I noticed my credit card that I had used to book the room, had been charged...

Great location in an interesting part of the city. Front desk staff were very helpful and recommended great eating places. Tram stop practically outside. Easy access to the CBD (15 mins away by tram) but also easy access to interesting shops and restaurants along Brunswick St and especially Smith St.

We used Metropole for its close proximity to St Vincents hospital - just a 4min walk away, and a comfy 12min walk to catch tram to city. The accommodation was v nice, but the real jewel for us was the convenience to hospital - very reassuring when one's close family member is in there for major surgery, and the other...

We made our booking in December for a stay in February. We didn't receive the confirmation call as the booking said we would, so had to follow up ourselves. Tried to book a function room but were told during many follow up calls that the person we needed to speak was very busy and they were short staffed. On arrival,...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we certainly appreciate your feedback. You are correct that we have been painting the external area of the building.
