We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. As first time visitors to Sydney the view from the hotel room was very disappointing, all we could see was a brick wall and a glass cover over the hotel restaurant. The room itself was good, however the lighting in the room was not wired correctly and was very confusing.The breakfast was...

A pleasant stay for an overnight business trip. Great hidden location and close to the ICC and Darling Harbour. Simple and delightful breakfast in a refreshingly styled area. Will certainly stay again when in Sydney. Unfortunately no pool but close to the Ian Thorpe Acquatic Centre.

Lovely boutique hotel in trendy ultimo. A little bit of a New York SOHO. rooms spacious and spotless. Big balcony, soft towels and above all staff on the desk are fabulous. From the moment you walk in, greeted with a big smile and made to feel welcome. A special mention to Justin , awesome service and obviously enjoys his job....

fantastic stay recently after appointments at nearby hospital. Very relaxing and welcoming stay at the Metro. Will definitely recommend this hidden gem and will stay there next time we visit Sydney. A leisurely walk to nearby Chinatown was great for the evening. Thank you

Hotel great for location to Darling Harbour and The City. We had breakfast included.. and although the room and food was good, their coffee is disgusting. Took us back to hotel stays and restaurants back in the 70's and 80's. If your thing is mud, the go for it

We stayed there for 4 Nights during December 2016. The hotel is located at a nice peaceful locality away from the crowd but still very near to the heart of the city. The size of the room was good. There was a balcony that overlooked a small park. The facilities and amenities were good. Housekeeping was neat. The one minor...

Good hotel very near to china town and with-in walking distance to darling harbour and the city. Reception staff excellent and vert helpful. the breakfast was well worth $15. The only downside was the noise from the hallway people going to there rooms late at night talking giggling,it wasn't the guests fault it just needs sound proofing doors.

What a fabulous location! So close to everything including a large shopping centre, the Sydney Fish Markets, China Town and Darling Harbour, yet so very quiet and relaxed. No through traffic, no honking horns, no sirens. Fresh renovations to the public areas of the hotel were still being completed which were noisy during day time 'work' hours however this would...
