Look, the building is old, but you really can't fault this place for the price. The customer service was excellent. Rooms clean and well equipped. Great location and perfect for a family wanting to spend a few days exploring Sydney on a budget.

Had a business trip where I had booked Metro apartments and it was a very pleasant overall experience. The rooms were gorgeous and well maintained with a unique 2 level concept. Clean and tidy overall. All possible amenities for shower and iron and even washing machine + dryer were available. The location was just superb with a view of Darling Harbour and Madame Tussauds directly in front. Well lit rooms and good Air conditioning. Solid mattresses - had amazing sleep over the 2 nights i stayed. Easy key access for after hours as well. Close to most of the shopping locations including Pitt street which is just a few meters away. Great staff as well who were always polite and helpful
