  • 8.0.Very good

    The location is great, an easy walk to Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour and the city. The bathroom looked dirty and the hot water wasn’t turned on - I had to find the fuse box and found that the switch for hot water was off. Also the shower head was terrible - all spray and no water pressure. The bathroom and bed are upstairs, so not great for anyone with mobility issues. Good size kitchen and lounge area.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Loved the fact that the rooms had wonderful views of darling harbour. Rooms needed some attention to detail. Bathrooms needed a good clean. The lounge was comfortable, but needed some soft pillows as the arms were uncomfotable to lean on. Aircon wonderful. Quite expensive for the two night stay. My family had a room up the street and they got discount for paying cash.

    Affordable family accommodation in great location

    Great location, 5 mins walk to the Aquarium. Really good facilities for families - kitchen, washer/dryer, cot, foldout bed, bath/bath mat. The upstairs bedroom is an open loft style with wide spaced bannister so not suitable for children under 4. Our 18mth old stayed downstairs and we policed access to be stairs. We were on the 3rd floor and though you could hear the traffic it was fine for sleeping and the location more than outweighed the noise. The two younger guys at reception are amazing - Ariaf (sp?) was so lovely and assisted with street level access with my pram so I didn’t have to carry it up the stairs. Would stay again, thank you.

    Room was great for what we needed. Aircon worked but none of the controls did. Rooms were clean but not immaculate.

  • 6.0.Good

    Location is great and size of the room is great. We made up the sofa bed for our 5 year old and found a band aid under the sheets. The spare blankets also had hair all over them. Bathroom is quite dated, meaning it felt a little dirty, but still good for the price we paid. Somewhat poor communication from the front desk staff when we checked in. To their defense, there were a few others there checking in at the same time so they were trying to work through them quickly. They did not explain the parking to us, we saw that they had an agreement with Wilsons and had parked in a Wilson's car park less than 200m away, but found out this was the wrong one when we asked them to validate our ticket. Turns out there's another one in the other direction down the road. I feel this should be checked on check in, but was not even mentioned.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    My husband and I have stayed at Metro Apartments twice this year, we absolutely love the rooms, they're somehow cosy and spacious at the same time! Always nice and clean, the staff are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Location is great as well, a short walk from either QVB light rail or Wynyard station so getting there is easy. Darling Harbour, Madame Tussaud's, Sea Life Aquarium, Wild Life Sydney Zoo, and all the bars and restaurants around the harbour are within view of your balcony no matter what level you're on. If shopping is what you're in Sydney for then you're in a prime location to take a short walk to Westfield Sydney, Pitt St Mall, QVB, MidCity Shopping Centre, The Dymocks Building and The Strand Arcade.
