Wow where to start! First they accommodated my every dietary requirement (which says a lot considering I'm undertaking an elimination diet). If this wasn't enough they then could see we were juggling our playful baby girl and trying to eat our dinner at the same time. Without hesitation they offered to entertain her nearby until we had finished our meals, not sure who was having more fun, the waitress or the baby :). Thanks for a great experience!

Very special service at dinner tonight. Chef went out of his way to cater for paleo diner at our table. No trouble at all for chef and wait staff to prepare something not on the menu. 7 month old baby with us was cared for and entertained by staff while we ate our meal. Food was delicious too! We will come back.

Have stayed here a few times and this has become my preferred spot to stay in Melbourne. The rooms are spacious and clean. Reception staff are very helpful and all staff go out of their way to talk to you and help in any way they can. The location is excellent - Gertrude street is destination by itself and it is easy access by public transport to the city. Car parking is readily available and this spot makes it easy to head north or south in Melbourne. It is hard to go wrong at the Metropole.

We have regularly stayed at the Metropole since finding it in late 2012, when we were in the middle of a family emergency. We can't say enough about the helpful and courteous staff, who made our three month stay so much easier. The location of the Metropole is ideal as you can easily walk into the city, or to the major hospitals in the area. Trams pass the door and the tram stops are extremely closeby. Brunswick Street offers great shopping opportunities as do nearby Gertrude and Smith Streets. We now return every four months and are always happy to be back and love our spacious apartment. Our grandson, aged 4, loves the pool and the courtyard environment which gives him space to play outside. He also enjoys the parks in Carlton and Fitzroy Gardens, both easily accessible from the Metropole.

Great location for exploring Fitzroy & Collingwood & all the great eateries and shops on offer. It is also not too far from the city & tram stops are close by.

Room was spacious, we had a junior suite & it had a mini kitchen & living area. Decor is dated but place is clean and comfortable. Place would really benefit from an update.

Courtyard in the centre is nice and the pool looked inviting though we did not use it.

All the Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at the Metropole on business recently and really enjoyed the stay. My room was upgraded to a suite and I found all facilities to be first class.
The hotel is very convienient to Melbourne CBD, the rooms are modern, clean and tidy and the staff really friendly and helpful - what more could you ask for.
Well done Metropole - I will definately return when next in Melbourne.
