Stayed at the met on 4th july for tour de france grand depart. Nice clean room (bit hot and stuffy though) lovely breakfast and friendly efficient breakfast staff. Lady on reception efficient but a bit scary (not very warm and friendly). Nice smiley man on the friday evening on reception did hunt for an umbrella for me though !!!

Pros: great architecture, close to station, friendly-enough staff, comfy bed Cons: very poor sound-proofing to outside street, curtain hanging off at one end too, water (clear at least) dripping through bathroom ceiling (presumably not problem in every room, but not likely to have been the first time in mine judging by the ceiling stains), soap not fully cleaned off shower...

Dirty, tired and no food available for dinner! One of those hotels where the reception is the best bit and that's not even great! Single glazed windows mean you get to feel like you are sleeping in the streets of Leeds thus you will get no sleep. I was unfortunate enough to drop an earring on the carpet in my... More

This is a beautiful building, it is a shame that the first thing the weary traveller comes across is the not-so-faint aroma of dirty mop that pervades the lobby and very small lift. But is it symptomatic of a wider problem of lack of care about that beautiful building. Our room was on the sixth floor(warning - the lift only... More

Stayed at the met for the weekend. The hotel doesn't warn people that its an events hotel and that only guests involve in the event matter. When we arrived on the friday evening we were greeted by a full blown disco and dozens of screaming student party goers. The noise was horrendous and could be heard from the sixth floor.... More

I stayed there one night whilst on business in Leeds. The hotel exterior and reception were truly picturesque and reflected well the Victorian feel whilst being modern. I agree with another reviewer about the customer service, it was average with lack of eye contact and friendliness; it felt automatic and one reptionist in particular sounded a bit like a tape...

Dated Hotel which looks good on the surface. No hot water in bathroom or shower. Noisy room. Wifi and Internet terrible for a so called business hotel. Location good and breakfast decent. Attention to detail and pride lacking.

The Met can be busy with conferences and I was there as a delelgate. I also stayed over the night before my conference. The customer service at the front desk was efficient, although there could be more warmth and eye contact... rather than just processing the guest (that would make it effective as well as efficient). My room was a... More
