“Perfect!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

My partner and I were looking for a gem in the city of Venice; someplace unique and Venetian. We found it in Metropole. The decor is dark and sexy, the restaurant is gorgeous and delicious, and the staff was incredibly kind. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to the island of Murano leaving every 30 minutes or so, too! Our room was a suite with a canal view and although the The next time I'm in Venice I'd be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: Canal view was cheaper than lagoon view, and honestly, the room was so beautiful we didn't care...

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon, I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. We chose to arrive by private boat taxi which arrived at the hotels own private mooring. The staff were extremly welcoming and helpful and we were delighted to find that we had been upgraded to a room with a roof terrace where we could see the lagoon. It was beautiful. We were also lucky enough to be bought a chilled bottle of prosecco to our room.
Breakfast was fantastic and delicious, we also chose to eat in the Michillen star restaurant on one evening which was a great experience.
The hotel is in a good lcation and walkable to all the sites, Venice itself was quite busy whilst we were there and returning to the hotel felt like an oasis, we enjoyed sitting in the covered terrace out the back relaxing with a cool drink.
The Metropole is quite a small hotel which we really liked, service felt very personal and we would deffinitly return. I would recommend this hotel for couples.

We stayed here for four nights pre cruise. It is very expensive but we thought worth the price. Location,location,location. It was right on the Grand Canal, near water buses that got you everywhere and walking distance from many sights. The lobby and rooms are decorated in very heavy European style but the bathrooms were re done and modern! A lovely full breakfast was included in the price and staff was very nice. I liked the evenings..many restaurants to choose from and lots of people around! We did think the air conditioner could have been better.

AMAZING!!! Best hotel and staff I've ever met in ANY hotel ANYWHERE! They are all polite, friendly, and willing to help with any of your needs. Best part is the drinks in the bar are made with fresh fruit and the breakfast is of super high quality with eating on an outside terrace. Also, free taxi rides to and from Murano via a private taxi launch deck on the side of the hotel.

Perfect location, in the heart of it all! Room was spotless, looked recently updated. Bed and bedding was crisp, clean, and welcoming after a long day of sightseeing.
Service was friendly and accommodating.
Breakfast is not included in this pricey hotel stay, that would be an additional 30 euros per day for a breakfast buffet, or 12 euros per day for the Italian breakfast of coffee/tea, juice and 2 small pastries. It was convenient to have the Italian breakfast so we could start our day. Friends ordered a cappuccino with breakfast on our first morning and were given a refill. The following day we were gently scolded and told no refills on cappuccino, only coffee, seemed silly for the price paid. But all in all a nice stop to end our trip!

Room Tip: Room 121 is beautiful and overlooks the canal!

We just returned from a trip to Italy and spent 2 nights in Venice. We’re so glad we chose The Metropole. Prior to our trip, I corresponded with the hotel on several occasions via email. They were always prompt and professional in responding and answered all my questions. We’re a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) and reserved a junior suite connected to a deluxe room. Both rooms, especially the junior suite, were very spacious. The junior suite was quite grand with opulent furnishings. Both rooms were clean, and modern so to speak- the furnishings obviously had an old world feel. The hotel is directly on the grand canal, so it’s a great location. It has a view of the canal and the lagoon. We arrived at the train station and took a water taxi to the hotel (60 Euros). The hotel has its own dock so the water taxi dropped us right at the hotel and the staff immediately whisked our luggage away. You definitely feel the opulence of this hotel as soon as you enter. It is definitely unique with great charm and character. The staff at the reception were always helpful and friendly. Breakfast was wonderful. The hotel is ideally located, close to St. Mark’s Square and an easy walk to the Rialto Bridge. There are many restaurant choices in the vicinity. The water taxi to the airport was 100 euros (booked through a travel agency). I would definitely stay here again.

stayed 4 nights in this most beautiful hotel. Everything about it is elegant and luxurious.
Bathroom, had the whitest and fluffiest towels replaced every day if required. The toiletries were lovely and plentiful.
The staff were very helpful especially the lady on reception who was most informative. The location of the Metropole was perfect with fantastic views of the lagoon.
I was very sad to leave and would definitely return to this hotel which has charm,character and most
Of all a heart.
