Metro Hotel on Pitt
Travel Blogs from Sydney
Today was our last day in Sydney. We had a only a couple of sights we still needed to see so we set out first thing this morning for Hyde Park. We viewed the Anzac War Memorial and the Pond of Reflection which were built within the park. The park itself is beautifully landscaped and well maintained. The flower beds were still in full bloom and …
The majority of our day was spent in Manly, a suburb of Sydney. We took a 40 minute ferry ride from Circular Quay to reach there. It was a scenic ride on the water of the Sydney Harbour past the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Once docked in Manly we headed down the promenade to Manly Beach on the Pacific Ocean. We walked the beach from …
We had plans for another full day of activity so an early start was necessary. Our morning started with a relaxing breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon with tea and hot chocolate. Just what was needed to prepare for a bike ride. We caught a bus to Centennial Park learning in the process that it's necessary to flag the buses down in order for the …
Another beautiful sunshiny day took us down to the water. We spent several hours walking around Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay Wharf and Harbourside Wharf. All of the boardwalks and promenades along these waterfronts are lined with restaurants and shopping. In many instances these are multi level establishments with food, coffee bars, drink bars and …
Rise and Shine! We caught a 4 a.m. bus to take us us to the Avalon Airport for a 6 a.m. flight to Sydney. This was a smaller airport than the one we arrived at in Melbourne. Passengers were sitting all over the airport even in the cafe until boarding was announced. You could view the inside of the entire terminal from sitting anywhere. We also had …

Historical Traveler Reviews Metro Hotel on Pitt Sydney
Good location but a bit noisy
The location on Pitt Street near the corner of Bathurst Street is really convenient, with Town Hall Station, the QVB, Hyde Park, Museum Station and numerous bus routes just a minute away.
Our twin room was spacious, spotless and well air conditioned. The large shower room was ideal for us.
The only drawback was the inadequate soundproofing. Pitt Street is by no means the busiest and noisiest in Central Sydney but the Monorail whirring past every few minutes opposite the hotel was a bit of a nuisance. It does, at least, stop from 11pm - 6.45am. The traffic, however, goes pretty much all night. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper!
We didn't take the hotel breakfast. There are lots of cafes nearby. Would recommend the cafe inside the corner of Hyde Park by Museum Station.
Booked this hotel as it was relatively cheap. Booked a superior room as had read that the standard rooms were small. The superior room was still quite small but it was adequate. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked and the room was clean.
The hotel is ideally located, within walking distance of most places.
The hotel cashes AUD travellers cheques for no charge which was extremely useful.
Stayed in the IBIS on Darling Harbour at the start of our trip and would probably stay in the Metro Hotel over the IBIS as it is cheaper and for the amount of time you spend in the Hotel in as good a location.
Good Hotel - Great Location
I would recommend the Metro hotel - standard rooms are on the small side but very clean and beds are very comfortable. Staff were friendly and I had no issues. And great location!
Great hotel, great location
The hotel was good value for money! It's location is super: next to chinatown and only a 15-20 minutes walk to the opera (with a lot of nice restaurants in the neighbourhood!)
The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpfull.
If you 're looking for a nice hotel in Sydney...this is the one!
You get what you pay for and for us that was location. Within walking distance to all sights. Rooms however are small and walls are paper thin. Staff were friendly with the exception of housekeeping who continuously ignored "Do not disturb" signs and were sloppy, barely making the bed on some days.
We got what we wanted which was location and did not spend much time in the hotel. There are numerous small cafes which do good value breakfast nearby
Would try somewhere else next time.
The metro was great!
Two of us stayed in a twin room at the metro hotel on pitt street for 4 nights.
It was everything that we wanted!
Close to the shops and night life, a short walk down the road to the monorail, the markets and darling harbour.
Everything was very accessible to the hotel which was clean, comfy and a friendly place to stay right in the heart of the city.
If your wanting a hotel that is value for money and in the city centre, then I would highly reccommend this hotel.
Excellent value for money
Only stayed here for a night but we were very impressed. The Metro is classified as a three star hotel and as we got a great price online we were not expecting much. Our room was certainly small, but it was well equipped and tastefully decorated. The room overlooked an inner courtyard so the view was more or less of a brick wall, but this was not a problem - we did not come to Sydney to look out the window!! Had a great night's sleep - the room was quiet and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was clean with a great shower. Checked out too early for breakfast, but even if you did not want to have it at the hotel, there are many cafes nearby. Location of the Metro is excellent - near to Hyde Park, the QVB shopping arcade and great transport links to get you around town. Will definately stay here again.
Had a great time!
My family and I loved the Metro. We had just come from another hotel which had been very bad and asked about a weekly deal--they knocked AU $30 off of the initial rate, making it less than the bad hotel. The rooms are a bit small and ours was shaped a bit funny, but the beds are extremely comfortable and had piles of pillows, a duvet, etc. Rooms were well appointed, quiet, and had spacious bathrooms. We were right by the elevator and still had no trouble with noise! The location is great as well and the desk staff were fantastic, letting us store our luggage for two weeks while we vacationed in Queensland. There was also a fresh bottle of water for each of us every day. I would highly recommend this hotel!
We had a great time!
For our trip to Sydney from Hawaii, my wife and I wanted the best deal for our money while staying as close to the action as possible. That is exactly what we got. The Metro Hotel on Pitt was more than we expected in regards to quality, service, price, and undoubtedly - location. Admittedly, the room was quite small, but it must have been refurbished fairly recently because it was immaculate with very modern furnishings and decorations, fixtures, etc. I was very impressed. What the hotel lacked in amenities, it made up for in location. There was no fitness center in the hotel, but we went running in Hyde Park a block away. The staff a great job of going out of their way to make sure that we were taken care of. We didn't dine at the restaurant located inside the hotel (which seemed to be suitable), but there were lots of great resaurants all within a block or two. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to be in the heart of Sydney but doesn't want to spend a few hundred dollars a night to do it.
...particularly having read the other reviewers comments! We arrived at this hotel having just flown in from Singapore, expecting the worst, having read the one review that we could find about the hotel. Having just spent the previous few nights in the Shangri-la hotel, we were by no means shy of quality.
The Metro hotel was a typical 3* hotel, and we'd paid a great rate for it. The room was compact, but perfectly well equipped, the queen bed was comfortable, there was a sofa, writing desk and television in the room. The room was clean and the decor was modern and tasteful. The shower was powerful.
The hotel was well located, on Pitt street, just past the pedestrianised area. Our room was quiet, we weren't aware of any noise from the exterior of the hotel, or from other guests.
The hotel staff were friendly, and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable.
This hotel exceeded my expectations. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a well located, clean, comfortable 3* hotel in Sydney consider the Metro, it was excellent value.
