Reviewed 11 hours ago

This hotel is classic Venitian. Antiques in hallways, rich red wall paper, and this is finished fantastically. The staff very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was in a beautiful area where you could eat inside or outside. Breakfast items very varied and excellent. Location couldn't be better particularly during carnival!. Five minute walk to San Marco Square.

Best staff and location!

We has a wonderful stay at the Metropole. The hotel is very 'venitian' in its decor. You feel transported to a different era. Bedrooms as roomy and comfortable with plenty of natural light. Bathrooms completely modern, with marmol and bidet. Plenty of closet space.
The Oriental bar is a delight when you are coming in tired and hot from walking around.
Breakfast out in the terrace is so beautiful, full of flowering plants and a lovely fountain. The buffet was excellent with a variety of juices and fresh fruits, pastries, cheeses and charcuterie, different breads plus eggs, sausage or bacon and smoked salmon. Coffee and tea made to order.
The best though was the staff at the front and concierge desk. So attentive, so eager to help and please. They arranged for a trip to Murano and Burano for us in a private vaporetto. All the recommendations were fabulous. Truly made such for a wonderful stay and location could not be better. It is right in front of 3 vaporetto stops. You can connect anywhere from there and just a couple of blocks from San Marcos Square. Highly recommend this hotel.

Wonderful Hotel and Staff

This hotel is old school. Antiques in hallways, antique looking furniture, red velvet wall paper and bed covers. All done in a good way. The staff was the best we experienced on our two week vacation. From the bellman, waiters, waitresses, concierge...everyone! Breakfast was in a beautiful area where you could eat inside or outside. Breakfast items very varied and excellent. Location couldn't be better. Five minute walk to San Marco Square. Vaparetto stops right in front. Plenty of restaurants nearby. They even supplied us with a speed boat for our trip to the airport.

Historic hotel with great service!:

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Metropole. The hotel is in a very convenient location (within walking distance to everything), and the staff is wonderful!

I accidentally left clothing in the closet and they sent it immediately overnight to my hotel in Florence, which we really appreciated.

Venice is not known for the best service, but this hotel will make you very happy you stayed there. They give Venice a wonderful reputation and we would stay again when we return.

Highly recommend!
