“Shocking and Expensive for what you get tiny rooms.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We arrived after a long search for this hotel, we had booked the Hotel garage which you would presume would come in with the price , but NO they charge you 10 euro to park for one night, the room was so small it was hard to move around and there was only two of us, I don't even know what to say about the bathroom, if you go to the loo you will nearly be sitting in the shower so tiny is not a joke honest, if you go here please beware. Breakfast is 11 euro's each. Yes there is a Mini Bar but again very expensive.

Room Tip: pick another hotel

Booking directly with the hotel was really easy and staff were really helpful. We booked their car park and was really pleased we did at EUR10 per day, it is 5 minutes walk from the hotel and is secure. The hotel is in a pedestrian precinct so you need to pick up the remote control to lower the barriers to get to the hotel to unload. The hotel is a perfect central location in easy walk of the beach and the old town which has the best restaurants. We had booked a superior room which was large and had three large windows so the room was nice and bright. The room was clean but the decor is a little tired and old fashioned. The bed was big and comfortable but had sheets and old fashioned blankets and the pillow was a strange uncomfortable bolster that went the width of the bed. The bathroom was big but did not have a shower, just a bath and a hand shower that came off of the taps.
Breakfast was good at ERUR10.00 per day but would be improved with a toaster.
Reception staff were always very helpful and spoke good English.
We would stay there again

Our hotel was situated in walking distance of the centre ville of Boulogne-sur-Mer. The room was nice and clean and had all facilities (TV, airco, Wifi, mini bar, and a fully epuipped bathroom). The staff was friendly and helpfull.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights in August. The weather was pretty good and the hotel is ideally situated in the heart of the town,within easy walking distance of the sea front with its wide sandy beach, and the old town with its castle and museum, cathedral , and cosy streets with a great selection of restaurants. You can walk around the ramparts,which is lit up after dark.
The hotel is very well presented and efficient,with helpful and friendly reception staff. The rooms are on the small side but this is made up for by the large modern bathroom and toilet. The hotel carpark is conveniently situated 100 metres or so from the hotel at 10 euros per night, and the breakfast is really good and pretty good value at 11 euros. This hotel ticks all the boxes.The only downside is the incredible noise made by the gulls at night.

My husband and I and our friends stayed here for one night on one of our frequent short breaks to northern France.

The hotel is bang in the middle of a shopping street, closed to vehicles during prime time each day.

Staff vert friendly, breakfast selection excellent and as always as much as you want. Secure parking is a bonus at €10 per night, which is reasonable,and overall very reasonably priced.

My wife and I had three pleasant nights at The Metropole in April / May 2013. Everything was very good. The parking is just a short walk (40m) but you need to look closly at the directions as it can be a little confusing to get to - but no problem at all. The location is right in the centre of town with bars and restaurants nearby. A great spot to base yourself if you are driving around the WW1 and WW2 sites. Very helpful staff with good English.
From Manly, NSW, Australia

Room Tip: The 'superior' room was great and worth the little extra.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

We stayed here on a two night stay on a tourist trip of Boulogne. Having read other reviews I emailed the hotel in advance regarding parking (in English as my French is limited). They replied back within an hour giving the address of the garage (next street along) and the code to enter. This saved us any hassle when we arrived. Staff are very friendly and speak good English. The room is average size but has all you need. Very clean. Shower is lovely with choice of moveable head or big rain type head. Located right in the centre with bars and restaurants spitting distance. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was very quiet. Would definitely recommend
