Hotel Metropole

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We adored our time in Venice and at the Metropole! The staff is so attentive and our suite spacious and lovely. Giuliano and his team at the concierge desk worked hard to help us organise a perfect few days in Venice. They recommended a fantastic tour guide, reserved immaculate boats for us to hire and booked us into perfect restaurants throughout our visit. What a fantastic service! Our taxi driver to the airport was questionable, but all else was absolutely 5 star! Highly recommend!

Totally seamless visit from start to finish. Great hotel and friendly, helpful staff. Can highly recommend dinner in the Met restaurant. We booked direct via the hotel website and were given an amazing upgrade. Will definitely be back! Bravo !

I can’t recommend this hotel enough, I had a fantastic stay with my boyfriend. From the moment we arrived, the concierge staff were beyond friendly and accommodating. It was a perfect experience. It’s in an ideal location without being too central in all the tourist madness! The rooms are lovely and Venetian style. We had an excellent stay and will 100% go back! Also completely recommend including breakfast in your visit as the food was delicious!

I visited metropole hotel for two nights with my girlfriend and we had a great experience. The hotels location is only a 5 minute walk from st marks square and when arriving by boat its only a 30 second walk from S.Zacharria port. Another main attraction being the Rialto bridge, this is about 15/20 minute walk depending on which route you take. Greeted with 5 star service, taking care of our bags and answering all our questions. We were taken to our room which was beautifully decorated. Our rooms window looked over the canal so we could see those gondolas passing every so often if we wanted to which added to the whole experience. The only thing which I noticed slightly annoying about the room was the available plug sockets and the sound of running water filling some kind of tank in the night, but these were minor. Breakfast was fantastic, beautifully presented in a spectacular room. I must mention the staff again who I can’t fault, they presented us with an umbrella after not noticing it was raining when we reached the lobby. I had a very good experience and would definitely recommend this hotel to someone else wanting to visit Venice.

This is a beautiful hotel, the decor is eclectic and the staff beyond compare. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. We were two ladies of a certain age and did rely on the concierge for concert tickets, water taxis and on line flight booking. Every request was greeted with a real desire to help, all of which made our stay completely stress free. We had a junior suite which was spacious, comfortable and quiet with a very useful dressing room. The only draw back to this hotel is that there are beautiful objects throughout which are very distracting when you are in a hurry. The restaurant was not open in the evenings when we visited so we had to eat in the bar which was not ideal.

You can reach The Metropole by water bus from the airport (15 Euros per person, tickets can be bought at machines while you're waiting for your luggage to arrive on the carousel). Get off the water bus at San Zaccaria, then a short walk to the hotel. Or take a water taxi, which the Hotel will book for you (for 200 Euros). (If you are in a party of 5 or 6, the water taxi (booked for far less than 200 Euros at the airport) is good value and willl save a lot of time.) The ground floor is beautifully decorated, with a good bar and a lovely lounge. Antiques to be admired in every area. We booked a suite with lagoon view - the view was stunning, but the room was more a double than a suite, although it was nicely decorated. Good supply of toiletries and towels. However, it did seem that meals came with a hefty price tag - 35 Euros per person for breakfast, and the same for each course(!) at dinner! The Metropole has been a favourite for many years and we will be staying there again in the summer.

Every time we stay here we are never disappointed. It’s old world charm is spectacular. Service is excellent, location very good. Rooms are lovely and beds very comfortable. It has a great bar where you can relax after walking along the canals for a glass or two 🍷🍷 Thoroughly recommend this hotel. You feel like you are definitely in Europe

Stayed here for New Year's and we were not at all disappointed. Got picked up by a private boat (fee) from Venice Santa Lucia Station. Had a beautiful romantic ride along the canal to the main hotel entrance. Great beginning. Location was great as it was literally two bridge climbs away from San Marco's square. All attractions were nearby and within walking distance too. The staff were very kind and helpful with all our requirements. The rooms were spacious and had all luxury amenities as well. Great overall experience to end our Italy trip. Definitely a recommendation to all couples as well as families

Excellent service! Excellent quality! Excellent interior! Excellent elegance and class! Excellent ambience! Excellent rooms! Excellent breakfast! Excellent views! What more could I possibly say? One of the best hotels I have experienced in Europe of all the extensive countries and cities visited!!

Stayed here in may 2016 for our 6th year anniversary and it was amazing !!! The hotel is just perfect,great location stunning decor really helpful friendly staff you name it they can’t do enough for you. The breakfast court yard is out of this world proper Italian and really romantic. The actually breakfast was superb with everything nice and fresh which means you keep going back for more. The hotel bar is stunning, the waiters will whisk you up all kinds of cocktails once you tell them what you like. They even have a free water taxi over to the murano glass factory where you can watch master glass blowers doing there thing which was amazing !!! Can’t fault this place it’s a real gem of Venice so would highly recommend and 100% stay again Thanks for the memories
