Hotel Metropole

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great Hotel & staff very helpful, beautiful setting on the Canal if a little busy, therefore in walking and vaporetto distance to everything. we travelled to Venice to see the Damien Hirst exhibition at two venues and were not disappointed great stuff. Venice has already been written to death about and I don't have any more to add to that other than take out a second mortgage!! back to the Hotel - we had a special anniversary meal in the wonderful restaurant and they went that extra mile for us and made it a wonderful experience, we had the tasting menu and I cannot praise it high enough. would we go back...... in a heartbeat.

We were overwhelmed by the efficiency and courtesy of the staff, the magnificence of the architecture of the hotel, the stunning classical Venetian interior, the opulence and supreme comfort of our suite, the stunning view from our bedroom window and the enormous selection to choose from the breakfast buffet. We did not eat in the Michelin Starred restaurant because there are so many wonderful trattorias to choose from in Venice, but if the rest of the services provided by the hotel are anything to go by, it must be second to none. We shall definitely try it on our next visit. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Yes, I agree with some of the other reviewers, it's not cheap, but it is 5 Star rated and justifiably so and well worth the additional expense in my opinion. We are already thinking of booking a weekend break there next year!!!

We stopped here for the night while on a cruise and were not disappointed. The rooms are appointed old Venice style, but cool and sheik. Not an inexpensive room (at over 500+ Euro), but being right on the waterfront and close to everything (as most are in Venice) was perfect for us for the night. The food was good downstairs and the bar service was great too. Indulging a night here and there it felt romantic and like going back in time. It was very cool for us to enjoy, however short.

We had a lovely stay in this hotel for 3 nights but there were a few things that really disappointed us fir the amount of monies we paid. Service In the garden room was awful, unless you were dripping in jewels. The cost for breakfast was $35 euros each and it was just a buffet nothing special and no service ? Yet go out to a beautiful restaurant or cafe for breakfast and service is incredible only costing $10 Euros ahead. We had the tasting menu on our last night in the restaurant of this hotel , for 3 people . They charged €500 Euros ? We only had one bottle of prosecco and two bottles of water ! When challenged about prices not on menu, they ruined evening with an argument and a reduction as we were so shocked at substandard service for that price? We travel all over the world and have had super service and happy to pay for beautiful foods! This is one to watch out for, there are better restaurants to go to. Hotel rooms beautiful and our views exquisite. Hope this was of help to future travelers .

Best place to stay in Venice, close to every where where nice in Venice, staff are so helpful kind and nice, room is clean and quiet have nice view, you could do anything and back in hotel for a minute and back cause it close everywhere.

When I walk into the beautiful entrance off the Canal and see my sweet friends at the desk I know I'm home I have stayed at the Metropole 5 times whenever I visit Venice it's my happy place Everything I want or need I'd met The rooms and I've tried many different ones are luxurious and meet my every need Thevbeautiful collections the perfect service the best breakfast in all of Italy Thevli VG elybgarden and the most amazing restaurant All make this my favourite spot to start my day and end my day in Venice!!

We picked the Metropole for its location near the water taxi and St. Mark's square. The room was stuffy as the air conditioning either did not work or was absent all together. Very noisy due to a child crying on and on in the middle of the night, no sound proofing here. Did like the wonderful breakfast in the courtyard the next morning ( Euro 30 each). We were offered a private boat transfer and car to the airport for Euro 210 and were able to find it elsewhere for Euro 110.00, not sure why. Did not meet our expectations for the price we paid.

Formal hotel located minutes from San Marco Square. Polite but rather formal staff. Has one star Michelin restaurant. Great buffet breakfast. Has lagoon view rooms with air conditioning and bathtub. Rather ornate decoration yet comfortable accommodations.Helpful concierge.

What a way to make a grand standing ovation entrance into the heart of Venice, hotel is proudly located just opposite of St Zaccaria boat station and right by the St Marco's Piazza. It was my surprise Valentine present, right at the time of Carnival, when town transforms into the Royal Ball. Metropole offers a taste of it, each room dressed in a different masquerade costume, bequeathing Casanova’s flavour. Inhale raw taste of Venice for breakfast once you open your window shatters early in the morning, gondolas passing by and singing the soul out of its history... Truman Capote once said that Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go, go taste it… with Metropole

This is a lovely hotel. The service is excellent and the location is superb - right by St Mark's Square. Breakfast is fantastic, décor is quirky and luxurious, there is also a great garden at the back where you can enjoy a glass of wine.
