Hotel Metropole Suisse

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I picked this hotel based on location and previous reviews. It is next to the PIazza Cavour which hosts the Christmas Market. Check-in was fast and polite and the room was generally as expected. Good sized room and bathroom. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, so I had a good night's sleep. Bathroom was average in standard of fittings, although larger than ones many Italian hotels. Shower was over the bath, so could be a problem for some people. Overall the room was clean and comfortable. Overall, nothing special about the hotel, but it is in a good location and was a good base to explore Como.

We spent 2 nights at the Hotel Metropole Suisse Hotel in Como. Our room was average size but the bed seemed larger than a queen but not as big as a king. Our room was a bit warm when we arrived but opening the windows cooled it down quickly. We had a beautiful view of Lake Como and the marina which was right across the street. Very convenient for catching a lake cruise to Belagio, which I highly recommend. The hotel is convenient to many restaurants and things to do. We walked around the south end of the lake to a tram that took us up to the top of a hill with a wonderful view of the lake and the town of Como. The view of the cathedral was breath-taking. We enjoyed our first focacia bread with wine at one of the restaurants at the top. The old town area of Como is just a few blocks from the hotel with lots of shopping and restaurants as well as the cathedral. We're not catholic and still enjoyed the tour of the cathedral.

We stayed here for three nights before cruising out of Venice. Lovely hotel, ideally situated with lots of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants nearby. Breakfast was very good. Rooms clean and comfortable. Would recommend.

What a great location for touring Lake Como - wife and I spent 2 nights here in a clean large room ( 2 beds joined together ) with a cracking view - reception helpful, breakfast lovely if not predictable now in Italy ( can’t people do Omelletes or just fried eggs on toast 😊) - we would love to return but would ask whoever put the wallpaper in the rooms to never get another interior decorating job because wow they just don’t match but we put up with small things like that for convenient locations. Also shower nosel in strange position which tended to flood bathroom but lovely shower nonetheless

Adorable location, such a beautiful hotel full of personality. The rooms are clean and tidy, with shower, so lovely. Very friendly and accommodating hosts. The spa, restaurant breakfasts and wi-fi include. So, that is the place I would like to stay again!

What a great little find. We had a view of the lake looking out from the front side of the hotel. Very basic and dated rooms but clean and a fantastic front of house staff. Breakfast was included and no one would be disappointed with the selection. You won’t be sorry staying here.

My husband and I spent four days at Lake Como. We stayed at the Metropole and Suisse Hotel. What a great location! Our very large room and bathroom had a perfect view of the lake. We had an enclosed balcony with windows that open...also French doors from the balcony to the room, which helped with street noise. The hotel was clean and the staff attentive. We had to extend our stay and the hotel was wonderful in accommodating us and keeping us in the same room. There is also a good restaurant in the hotel which, in the morning, is used for breakfast. Lots of wonderful options from scrambled eggs to muffins, croissants, toast, fruit, cheese, salami or cooked ham. The bar is open till eleven pm. In case you don’t want to dine in the hotel and don’t want to go far there are three restaurants just across the piazza...the two farthest away from the street were great. The one closest to the street had attitude! Also, across the street is the stop for the boats to take you to different towns along the lake, like Bellagio. Select the faster boat, with hydrofoils...smooth ride and faster. I have always loved Lake Como and look forward to returning and staying at the Metrople Suisse!

It was quite horrible. The hotel looks nice from outside but the rooms are horrible. The bed was really small and really uncomfortable. The receptionist also was not polite. A sleepless night in a very nice place. We made a very bad choice because it was in front of the beach... I recommend to avoid!

Stayed here first two nights of out 13 day tour of Italy. Our room had the most gorgeous view of the waterfront and piazza you have ever seen. Entire Hotel staff was efficient and very courteous; I am quite sure no other hotel could have offered the same.

located on the Piazza Cavour, so bars and restaurants right nearby. Also, the Lake Como marina is just across the street. Location is fabulous. One evening we walked over to the sculpture located on the lake. Easy walk to the Duomo and other interesting streets. Our room was on the small side, but very clean. We opened the window that faced the piazza for some fresh air. The mattress quality was not the best. Staff were very courteous and friendly. Morning breakfast buffet offered a wide variety of hot and cold foods; plenty to choose from. The restaurant in the hotel (Ristorante Imbarcadero) offers an elegant atmosphere and delicious food.
