We stayed here for 3 nights in Jan 2018. Everyone we spoke with at reception was very friendly and helpful whenever we asked for assistance. Our room was nice and modern, perhaps a bit small but we didn’t need a big room as we only slept there. It would have been nice to have tea & coffee facilities even in the standard rooms. My understanding is this is available with upgraded rooms. Breakfast had a good selection available with some hot bits & pieces (eggs, bacon) and also pastries, cakes, yoghurts, cereal and bread. We did eat in the hotels restaurant on our first night but sadly I was feeling unwell so didnt eat much. My partner said he felt it was very standard food. Overall a very comfortable hotel with friendly staff and a welcoming feel.

Fantastic place to stay, beautifully decorated. Our room was fantastic and had plenty of space, the jacuzzi bath was a god send after all the walking that was done. The staff were really helpful, courteous, and generally very welcoming. The location was great, and found it very easy to get to all the sites, with the very helpful map that was given to us at reception. Hotel Metropolis is a real find.

Thank you Hotel Metropolis for a lovely stay. Booking in was great, all the people on the front desk were really friendly and spoke great English. They provided you with a map upon arrival and replaced it when needed. They also booked taxis for us which arrived only minutes after. The room was nice, clean and modern. Bathroom was good but the shower was very dark. Breakfast was lovely and the coffee was good, again the staff were so helpful. Location was good, not to far to Vatican or anywhere really. The only time we used a taxi was to the Colosseum and airport. I would definitely stay here again, Thank you

Fantastic place to stay! Check in was fast and efficient (as was check out). We had dinner at the restaurant- delicious & 5 star service all the way. Breakfast was ok 4/5.. rooms are trendy, spacious and clean. Sheets and towels changed daily. Great location - walking distance to The Vatican and easy access to the Leptano Metro stop (150 metres away).. we used the metro to go everywhere. Highly recommend (sorry I forgot to take pics)

Unfortunately Due to flight cancellation I have stayed only one night. Our room was front view and it was really quiet. We have stored our luggage after check out to have a bit more time to go around Rome. Hotel is beautiful and staff really friendly. If I will have a chance to come back to Rome, for sure I will stay here again! Thank you guys!

We have just returned back from a 3 night trip to Rome and stayed in this hotel. It was a great hotel and great value but I would personally rate this as a 3 Star more than a 4 Star. The hotel was clean and beds were comfortable, although the only thing I would say is the bathroom/shower room is a little small and dark, could do with some brightening up. Breakfast was included and there was a great choice for the size of the hotel, we only ate for breakfast and ventured out for lunch and dinner so can’t comment on the dinner. The hotel location is spot on, close to the Vatican City and lots of restaurants just 15 minutes walk away, it’s also very close to the metro but if you like walking then it’s easy to just walked everywhere like we did! The hotel staff are friendly and arranged a transfer back to the airport for us at a very reasonable price. If you want a hotel that’s good value of money with no frills and clean then this is your place!

The staff were friendly and hospitable. Rooms are clean and breakfast is delicious. Very to the metro station and location is suitable for tourists. Walking distance away from restaurants. The view from the room is nice. The rooms are quiet and you can sleep well.

Definitely great value for money, the location was really nice (15 minute walk to the vatican or the Piazza Popolo), breakfast was amazing and the staff was really good and helpful and smiley. Hotel was modern and had all you needed.

Picked this hotel for the location, just a block away from the Metro and breakfast was included. However, the overall hotel stay was disappointing. Our first room, 110 was up several stairs which meant all four pieces of our luggage up stairs. Once we entered the room, we were greeted by an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke. I opened the window and found several cigarettes in the flower box. I choose to advise the front desk as I didn't want to be charged of smoking in the room. Our next room was not initially smelling of smoke and we moved in. Once in there within an hour we smelled smoke, others in the rooms surrounding were smoking and noticeable in our room. We had to open the windows as the AC was not working. The bathroom was not very clean, the shower head and door were covered in calcium or limescale. The ceiling and corners had black mold. The bed was very hard and not comfortable at all. I would have advised the front desk however, we had already changed rooms once. Husband woke up at 4am with back pain. A good bed is key to a successful stay. The front desk female who checked us in and changed our room, was polite and the breakfast staff and food was positive.

I travelled to Rome on October with my husband and my 1 year old and stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. The hotel was very clean, facilities were new (as opposed to most hotels I’ve stayed before in Rome), room was comfortable and had a very nice size for Europe standards, shower was great, restaurant at the hotel was good (we had dinner there twice!) and location was quite conviniente (close to a subway station, 3 blocks away from one Main Street with many restaurantes and shops, 15 min walk from Piazza del Popolo, same for Vatican and approximately 20/30 min from Piazza Navona - I.e. close to main sites but still in a residential and quite area easy to access by our rental car). We made almost all sites walking from the hotel (except for Colleseum which was reached by subway). And whenever tired, we would take a cab back and would not pay more than 12 euros to return. But overall, we were very well impressed with the quality of the services and the incredible assistance we received from the hotel staff. Some of them were not fluent in English, but all spoke some English and were very friendly and inclined to help at all times. They were informed that we would be travelling with a 1 year old and made everything possible to facilitate our stay with a toddler (from allowing an earlier check in time, to providing baby food at breakfast and several baby related equipment at the room to warm her bottle, facilitate the shower and a comfortable crib). They also provided good assistance reserving our transfer from the airport as we only rented the car on our last day in Rome. The silence of the rooms were also impressive given that Rome is quite noisy (I did not hear a thing and could sleep late). We were very pleased that they made our first international trip with our daughter so much easier and pleasant and would definetely recommend them and return. Best services we found during our 21 days in many different places in Italy!
