How to Get There
Fri 16 Aug 2019 thru Mon 19 Aug 2019, x2.
FABULOUS hotel, FABULOUS staff, FABULOUS service, FABULOUS location!!!
FABULOUS location a few hundred yards/metres along from "Palazzo San Marco", and directly opposite "San Giorgio Maggiore", with views over the lagoon (else side-view across canal, else side/rear-view across gardens etc) - we paid a premium for "lagoon view", which was well worthwhile!
FABULOUS room - the whole hotel is somewhat ornately decorated, with what might be considered "OTT" (over-the-top) elsewhere, but in Venice, it ALL seems perfectly "at home"! Our room had 2 double windows, oth with external shutters, plus A/C. Bed was perfectly comfy, good 6-footer "queen" size (UK), plus table/2-chairs, desk etc, plus bathroom with full-bath and shower-over, plus toilet AND bidet etc. Mini bar and safe to boot. ALL in all, a great room! Maybe, in hindsight, I might have paid more for a larger room (ie "suite"), but we weren't planning to spend much time in-room, so what's the point? get out and enjoy Venice!
FABULOUS staff - everyone we met was nicely turned out in matching uniforms etc, and everyone was always very friendly and helpful, and very attentive - nothing was ever too much trouble! In addition, all staff, especially "Concierge", were more than happy to help with suggestions and/or bookings (in our case) for restaurants, things to do/see, water-taxi, etc.
FABULOUS food - I booked via web, so opted for "inclusive breakfast", which was great - you can either sit in the garden, on lovely comfy chairs, else in their beautiful breakfast room, ornately-decorated, under the A/C! Buffet??? WOW!!! Amazing selection of food - cereals, croissants, bread, fruit, eggs/bacon, cakes - plus anything else you could think of, brought to your table. Wonderful food, great service, not to be missed!
FABULOUS bar - we used the "Oriental Bar" (though curiously not very noticeably "Oriental"???) every night for pre-/post-dinner drinks, and also pop-in on the way in/out of the hotel. Lovely comfy seating, great service, great drinks/cocktails choices, great staff!
We spent 3 nights / 4 days at the Metropole, and LOVED it!!!
We stayed one night at the hotel before our cruise but we had been there before we left the cute bar the comfortable rooms and the nice front desk. Unfortunately I was jetlagged and went straight to bed but staff wished me a happy birthday and said they would save us a table in restaurant for dinner. We did have a lovely breakfast in the morning
Great stay in this cosy hotel situated between the Piazza San Marco and the Arsenale where the Biennale takes place. A very special applause to the friendly service of all the staff members (something we experience less and less in Italy unfortunately) and in particular the concierges. Very helpful, quick, organized and knowledgeable.
