Metro Hospitality Group will shortly complete major renovations to its boutique Melbourne property, Metro Apartments on Bank Place, in a bid to maintain its reputation for providing stylish yet affordable inner city accommodation.
Commencing in September 2012, with completion towards the end of May 2013, the renovations include the installation of new kitchens and bathrooms in all apartments as well as new lighting, carpeting and furnishings.
According to George Bedwani, Chief Operating Officer of Metro Hospitality Group, this particular property continues to defy the economic climate, maintaining strong occupancy despite a downturn in leisure and corporate travel to Melbourne over the last few years.
“The Apartments are very popular and enjoy significant repeat business, largely due to their central location and competitive rates,” he said.
Metro Apartments on Bank Place attracts leisure and corporate interstate visitors, as well as the regional Victorian leisure market. The Apartments also appeal to Melbournians looking for unique weekend accommodation for the opportunity to experience the vibrant soul of their own city.
The Apartments are located in a unique 100-year old Victorian building complete with rough hewn bluestone façade, in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. The chic exterior and surrounds are complimented by the interior’s understated style, quality furnishings and fittings.
The 46 studio and one-bedroom apartments all feature Queen sized beds, contemporary furniture and sleek grey and glass ensuites. The suites include a fully equipped kitchen and laundry so guests can self-cater.
A hallmark of all Metro Hospitality Group properties, a popular central city location ensures guests are within easy walking distance of Melbourne’s attractions and business districts. Nearby trams and train stations allow guests to easily navigate Melbourne’s outer suburbs.
