A whole lot of facilities for only little more than the cost of a remote suburban motel.
Melbourne is a great place to spend a few days taking in the sights of the city or enjoying one of the many shows that fill its busy cultural calendar – Strictly Ballroom, Lion King, Anything Goes, Rocky Horror Show are just some of the upcoming theatre attractions. Or maybe your passion is major sporting events, from Grand Prix and tennis to cricket and golf – or some sacred moments of bliss in an AFL match? If this sounds like fun but you can’t really afford to splurge on a posh hotel – and don’t really want to be parked in a distant suburban motel on a busy artery either – then what about affordable accommodation in the very heart of the city?
Tucked away in Bank Place, between leafy Collins and Little Collins Street, is the Metro Apartments. A five-minute walk from Flinders Street and Southern Cross Stations, and a similar distance to the most major tram routes, these serviced apartments strike a happy balance between comfort, cost, indulgence and independence. A man wearing a top hat may not greet you in the lobby, and your luggage may not be whisked away by a porter and deposited in a plush suite, but you will be met with a smile from friendly and efficient staff that will make sure that you are well looked.
And from that point onward you are your own free agent. The rooms are functional, practical and convenient in every way. Metro Apartments seem to have thought of everything with two spacious rooms offering every essential for self-catering – even down to a washing machine/dryer and automatic dishwasher. A wide and comfortable bed finishes off this city pad, which is neat, clean and well appointed, where everything works. Metro Apartments offer all of this for only little more than the cost of a remote suburban motel.
Of course, you won’t want to spend all your time in your room. Conveniently located, everything is within easy walking distance and the attractive Southbank is a just few metres down the road. You can step out the door and be overwhelmed by the dining selection.
There are 45 guest rooms with a range of options and rates. A visit to the Metro Hotels’ website will give you the big picture. Make sure that you check out the Hot Deals, which represent added value and convenience.
