3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Friendly staff, spacious room, awesome location ... little bit of traffic noise - but to be expected in city. balcony great - but needs a spruce up. nice view of darling harbour (4th floor). Excellent restaurants nearby (great salads at Peace harmony on King st.

We were going to a concert at the Opera House, and just needed a place to stay for the night. This hotel is easy walking distance to both Town Hall and Wynyard stations, and easy access to Darling Harbour. Perfect for a central city location! We had a one bedroom apartment to share between four people, and our loft apartment had a double bed and a double sofa. Feedback on the sofa was that it was adequate, about as comfy as sofas ever get, but the actual bed was very good. The room was quite small, but the loft gave it more room for all of us, so we didn't feel cramped at all. The bathroom was reasonable, with a shower over the bath, and a washer/dryer was also present. Kitchen came with tea and coffee, and had everything that was needed. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful, and made us two extra keys to the room so that we could each have one. The lifts were a bit dubious, and the doors had a tendency to start opening before the lift had completely stopped, and they clunked a bit as well, but they got us to where we needed to be in one piece. All in all, for a well-priced hotel in Darling Harbour, this was a great find, and served its purpose well.

Just across the street from access to Darling Harbor. What better location could it be? The room was very good and included a kitchen, but on two levels with bedroom/bath upstairs. Not good for wheel chair or walker users. The staff was exceptional in accommodating our every request and are on site from early morning to 10 pm to handle late check-ins. Street noise is an issue but tolerable. Metro Apts certainly met and exceeded our needs.

We are from Melbourne , base on the location, and the price , it,s good for family stay, save quite a lot for public transport, walk along Sussex st , easy go to china town, and Sydney tower just on the corner.. ....But, only one suggestion for this apartment- it ‘s time to upgrade all your mattress.

The location was great for us and we have stayed there before. I think we must have been on a higher level last time as the noise this time was terrible from the streets. We really did not get enough sleep.

Thought I booked accom with views. Paid the price of other hotels with views....but there were no views! Staff did nothing, citing fully booked. The ad in is very misleading!!! After arriving I was told to call the hotel direct to see if views are available...well put that in your ad so people like me wont be conned....

Room was not very clean! The lounge which was a bed had brown dirt on the seems. The air conditioner so loud we couldn’t sleep, but it was so hot we had to leave it on. On positive the staff were lovely

Poor in most aspects. Items broken, requested items broken. Location great, this is the only feature if the hotel which is good. Cleanliness, quality and all general aspects of the hotel were wanting.

We really enjoyed our stay. The location and facilities were excellent. The staff were very friendly and polite. The view was lovely - especially at night. We're looking into other Metro Apartments to stay in.

The location was great as it is near Darling Harbour and a short stroll to the centre of the city. The apartment was clean and well appointed although a little tired. A mini kitchen that would allow the preparation of food including an oven and microwave. The loft bedroom was novel and has an adjoining bathroom/laundry. The full height windows allowed a spectacular view of Darling Harbour and the surrounds. Parking was at the local independant carpark with an arrangement for a reduced cost of $35 per day. A comfortable stay.
