I had originally booked at The Metropolitan Hotel in SZR but this was being refurbished (otherwise known as being demolished!) so was given a transfer to the Metropolitan Palace at the same price (which was already good value).
The hotel is not big, like some of the 5 star hotels and I think that this adds to its appeal.
It is good quality, but not over the top and all the staff were very pleasant.
I arrived at 0830hrs from a night flight and was given an early check in by 0930hrs, with no additional charge.
I didn't use any of the restaurants, except for breakfast, which was the usual buffet style, again pretty good, although as usual, pretty expesive at around £15.
The hotel bar, Sketch is dominated by a Belarus origin house band who look and sound like they have come straight from Eurovision Song Contest and are frankly too loud for the size of room that they are playing - but amazingly they appear to have a fan base who attend nightly!
