The Metropole Hotel
During my stay at Katoomba, i stayed at The Metropole Hotel, 3 Stars. It is quite convenient as the hotel is located near to the train station,. You would be able to reach the hotel in less than 5 mins. Of course, it is relatively cheaper to stay here than at Carrington Hotel if you have a lower budget to spend. Overall, i had quite a good impression of the service here and enjoyed my stay.
Reception area is in a room beside the main door. We were greeted by a pleasant and helpful receptionist who answered all our enquiries. If you are here to visit the Scenic World, take note that the reception here are selling Scenic World Unlimited pass for $33 instead of $35. Present the voucher to the staff at the scenic world to obtain your ride band.
Cafeteria is opposite to the reception area. They serve meals here including breakfast.
Level 2 - left is the library, right is the entertainment room. Internet Wifi is chargable here, so purchase your data card at the airport if possible as it would be more cost effective. Refer to Day 1 of Sydney Itinerary.
