Had a great experience here. One of the staff members went out of their way to assist us with a problem which I was so grateful for, and which has left us with a great impression of this hotel.Car parking and good sized rooms welcome too.

Booked a studio apartment and was upgraded to a one bedroom apartment.Check in was efficient, and given the exorbitant parking prices in Melbourne the included parking was a plus.The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and we were certainly able to get a good night's sleep. The kitchen area was minimal but had a fridge and microwave and enough...

I have stayed at the Metropol twice in as many weeks for work. Both stays have been great. Comfy bed quiet rooms. The restaurant on site is good value for both dinner and breakfast.

Excellent room and location! We got an amazing deal with the pricing and had a spa room. Rooms are so clean and spacious. Staff were lovely and helpful. Convenient and free parking under the building. Pool looked great but ran out of time to swim unfortunately. Will definitely stay again. Highly recommend to anyone.

Me and my family stayed over New Year's Eve here and it wasn't nice neither was it bad. Rooms are clean, interior is ok, breakfast buffet for 15,50$ is really disappointing. You don't get delicious bread but toast which doesn't seem editable.

Good location. Our apartment was over 2 levels giving excellent views towards The Dandenongs. Reduced rates for stays related to St. Vincent's Private Hospital. Free parking was a great bonus. Staff very friendly.
