Stayed here for two nights for a conference and was very impressed with this hotel.
Foyer was stylish and bright and reception staff were friendly.
King Room was beautifully decorated with black and cream modern furniture. Bathroom was fresh and clean with frosted glass cubicles for shower and toilet. Screens slid away to open up bathroom to bedroom.
Room was on the 14th floor, however did overlook the car park.
Please take the time to visit the gym and pool on 27th floor - great facilities and great views. Plenty of cardio machines, weights area and stretch area.
Would definitely return to this hotel.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled on business

This hotel is a great place to see bustling Melbourne for the first time!

The hotel has a very modern feel and is located a fantastic area close to all the restaurants in Southbank.

The pool has fantastic views of Melbourne, although get in early if you would like one of the sun loungers as it does get busy!

I slept well when I stayed here and wasn't disturbed at all - a great stay.

The hotel has a modern trendy feel to it with minimalist decor. The reception staff were most welcoming and the room was extremely well appointed. It was Gold Cup week and so the social areas were very busy with race goers - but this all lent to the atmosphere of the place. It was hard to find a spot to swim but the infinity pool has to be experienced - high up and with a helicoptor flying past the window made it all a bit surreal!
Drinks on 28th floor gave you the choic eof sitting round the 'open fire' or by the window with a terrific city panorama. Great to sit for casual late supper - very attentive waiting staff.
Easy stroll along to other amenities in the city south bank area.

Crown Metropol is my favourite Melbourne hotel alongside the Park Hyatt across town. The service, décor and location are excellent. The only imperfections are the lack of a bath in standard rooms and low(ish) water pressure through the shower. Also, the bed coverings are a weird combination of loose sheets and duvet, which is not to my liking but only a minor irritation.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room with windows on two sides.

I stayed here for work last week, for just one night, and loved this hotel! It has nice big rooms with a comfortable bed and modern fit out. I was on the 21st floor so also had a great view of Melbourne city – ask for a room on a higher floor if possible. Lots of good restaurants nearby and a short walk to the city with close proximity to public transport also. 11am as the standard checkout was also handy. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor that's city facing

this was our third stay at the metropol and we just love it there. This time we had a view of the bay and it was nice to watch the water and the traffic from our room. We had two double beds and the room was clean and tidy and housekeeping was great. The pool was lovely and warm and we had very nice drinks up on Level 28. We would again highly recommend the Metropol and look forward to staying again soon.

Good hotel, connected to the crown complex. Very convenient direct connection to crown, which was useful as we had a dose of Melbourne weather! Also close enough to walk easily to the city.

Room was large (2 doubles) and modern, everything well appointed. Our room looked out to the bay, meaning the close view was not great, (apartment blocks, the M1 etc) but distant view OK.

Friendly staff. Only thing to fault was it took 40 minutes and a phone call to get bags to the room, but they arrived within 5 minutes of the phone call, with an apology.

It is not an "experience" hotel, but it is good quality and good value for business or pleasure.
