good enough for the price

Was just there for one night before flying back to the states. Room was somewhat dark and the cleaning staff left lots of hair from the preview guest in the bathroom which was somewhat gross.

Central, safe and clean

This simple hotel is handy for Central Station and public transport, although it was so central I was able to walk to main tourist areas. Staff were very helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. I did not have time to use the small pool on the roof, but nice to know it was there.

Worth the money

I was looking for a low cost hotel in Sydney, and came to the conclusion that such doesn't really exist. Unless you want to do one of the backpacker hotels of course. Correct me if I'm wrong though =) The Metro Hotel Sydney Central is nicely located, only about a 10 mins walk from central station where the airport shuttle stops. The hotel is located in Chinatown (or at least it seems so), and darling harbour, and the shopping areas are close by. The town hall train stop is about 10 mins away from where you can reach all Sydney by train. I haven't tried the bus system, maybe there is something even closer. The room had standard equipment. Everything was clean and I had no interference with the service staff. When I arrived they tried to charge me extra for the wireless, but since I booked this hotel specifically with internet access, they did not charge me, and gave me internet. Very nice of them.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The Victoria Galleries are close by (north of St. George and Park Street), and there are lots of shops there. If you're in the gallery make sure to see the old clock in the top. It doesn't work, but it beautifully manufactured. Oh, and check out Manly or Bondi Beach.

Great value - perfect location

Been searching for years for good value in the heart of the city. This place really fits the bill - rooms are 3.5 star but at a 2.5 star price for the location. Right near central, the light rail, and George st

Not Bad Value, in a City Where Everything is Overpriced.

There is no such thing as a fair priced hotel in Sydney, but "this Metro" hotel isn't too bad if you can get a room for around $120 a night. I regularly travel to Sydney and over the years have stayed in a range of hotels. If you have the money always stay closer to the "Circular Quay" end of town, especially if a tourist. But you WILL need to be willing to pay!! This particular Metro, is a close walk to "Central" station, and China Town, a 40 minute leisurely wander to Darling Harbour, and a 15 minute stroll to the Mall. During the day the noise of the city resonates through the rooms, but at night it is reasonable quiet. It is a basic "Mid Range Sydney Hotel" with basic rooms, basic amenities but shows effort is and has been made to upgrade and improve fittings and decor, and is definitely better presented and kept than most near by hotels that charge more. ( Some lovely Brett Whiteley prints on the 12th floor) Clean crisp sheets on a comfortable modern real "queen" bed. Standard vented Air Con kept the room cool, and seemed to work better than most internal systems. Tiled bathroom small but bright and clean, with the usual signs of use and mould around the bath and shower, but this is found in hotel rooms that charge three times as much, and is an Australian hotel standard due to not allowing cleaning staff to use any bleach products as well as the the amount of time allocated to clean each room. Staff were of the usual "N.S.W Charm", not overly friendly nor outwardly genuine, but pleasant helpful and effective enough which is always a bonus in Sydney. Overall, it is, far better value ( at $120 - $130) than most other so called "Mid Priced Hotels" in Sydney, and better than its sister " Pitt Street " hotel, which is 5 minutes closer to the centre of town. Maximum I would pay for a basic queen room at this hotel ... $140 per night. If paying more then I would look at staying closer to the Harbour Bridge end of town, or North Sydney. But Good Luck On That !

Well positioned and priced!

Many centrally located hotels in capital cities, can be over-priced and provide very ordinary standards and facilities, so this property is a pleasant surprise being central, clean and tidy and reasonably priced, run by pleasant helpful staff. So I'm happy to recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in a midlle-of-the-market Sydney hotel.

Clean but perhaps compact room. Good for a 1-3 day stay . Bathroom was clean. Location is very good being right next to Central Rail Station. Tons of food places in adjoining streets. If one complaint ! WIFI is not free/included.

If an Australian Senior or on any Centrelink benefit I recommend you purchase the Pensioner Bus/Train/Ferry ticket. Only $2.50 for all day travel.
