Recent guest reviews

Avoid room 221 it is not fit for purpose and probably should not be in service other than that the improvements to the hotel have vastly enhanced the place and is very clean missed the ambiance of the old bar.

We had room 440 on the top floor with great views of Cork and the River Lee. This was our fourth time to stay there and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The breakfasts there were excellent with so many choices we had something different every morning. /we were there 4 nights.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my friend, we found the staff at the hotel very helpful. Location great especially if you like shopping. We will definitely return to this hotel and will recommend the Metrapole to my friends.

Enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return. Great location in the heart of the city. Less than a 10 minute walk from the train station. Food was good with an excellent breakfast and superb service. Limited selection of wines in the dining room. Overall, good experience.

Great location, clean and friendly. Facilities great , everything you could hope for. We would definitely go again, in fact i will come back with the wife and family in the not too distant future. Looking forward to my next visit.

The Metropole is in a brilliant location near the railway station and a stroll to the city centre. It has class of another era but fully modern and up to date. As important the staff couldn't be bettered for friendliness and being helpful. The type of people you aren't embarrassed to approach. Standards of rooms excellent and room staff brilliant for sorting out room !! We would not hesitate to recommend Metropole and hope to visit again and use that brilliant looking pool and gym.
