Exactly why the name Metternich of the famous Austrian politician was chosen for this hotel , i do not know., but I discovered the fascination of the hotel owner for another political figure, namely Che Guevara, with pictures of the revolutionary adorning the walls of the breakfast room. His portraits and profiles at various ages in black and white were quite captivating. and lest it gets too boring and sombre, he contrasted it with black and white pictures of Hollywood singers of the .50's on the opposite wall including Frank Sinatra, Dean martin Louis Armstrong and others.
The breakfast spread was good with a varied choice of fruit, cheese, cold meat ,bread, pastries and beverages, hot and cold. We were thrilled to be able to choose Assam tea among others to wash down.the food.
The hotel staff were helpful, specially the office staff who on request booked a variety of tours that all started from the hotel.
The hotel was very close to a metro station and several bus routes.There were also a large number of eateries close by.
The rooms were very small and cramped. and the heavy curtains were in need of a wash.
The rooms were accessed by a lift that started from the mezzanine floor, led up by a flight of stairs, This proved quite a problem with our heavy cases.
