I've visited this hotel at least once every 3 years since I was a child. Always stayed here whenever we made a family trip to Cork. The rooms are spacious, with a choice between twin beds, a double bed, or a double and a single. Rooms include en suite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries included (soap, shower cap, shampoo and conditioner).... More

The accommodation as always is clean and comfortable and makes for a very pleasant stay. The leisure center pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room are a great asset to the hotel. The food is excellent and the... More

109 € from Hotels.com for a double room with free cancellation and breakfast included. This hotel is easy to find, Central to the city and very spacious. The parking, though costs 7.50 per 24hrs. Didn't try the breakfast. Room comfortable but a noisy fan sound kept me awake. I'm sure this wasn't in every room. Lift extremely slow. Reception staff... More

There is nothing fancy about this hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a room facing the street so there was noise from a local car repair shop when the window was open, but nothing at night to keep us awake. You can easily walk to the hotel in 5 minutes if...

Lovely reception, room is standard and to me not worth £50 a night with a old small TV, and old carpet and the worst shower I have ever been in with zero hot water and drops of water.breakfast is poor and not worth price unless included. Good location but there is a lot of other hotels in centre.. Pool is... More

We were fortunate to get a room facing the river. When it rained we enjoyed just sitting and watching activity from our window, the bathroom was huge, great towels. The location was wonderful. This hotel has restaurants and bars close by and is only a few blocks from the center of town. Pricing was very reasonable. If we return to... More

My partner and I travelled to Cork for a concert, and booked a double room in this hotel for our stay, as it was close to the Ccity Centre. On arrival in reception, my first impression was that it looked lovely. It took us a good while to check in, due to large numbers checking in at the same time.... More

Dear MavisDavis74, Thank you for your review. The Metropole Hotel is equipped with two lifts and because we have over one hundred bedrooms it is inevitable that bedrooms will be located at the end of a corridor. However if you had requested a room close to the elevators we would have been delighted to accommodate you. We do not have... More

This is my second stay in this hotel. On the plus side, room was clean, bed was comfortable, and location is very convenient. Free reliable wifi also a bonus for business customers and cheap convenient parking available. But...I didn't sleep. There was an extremely noisy group of guests on my corridor, banging on doors, shouting and singing in the corridor... More

Dear Jenny D, Please accept my apologies for the disturbance you experienced during your stay with us. As soon as this was brought to our attention we investigated the disturbance and discovered a disoriented gentleman who had become locked out of his room. This was resolved as quickly and quietly as possible. Unfortunately we were not made aware of a... More

The hotel is well situated in central Cork close to all bars and restaurants and things to see. It is an old hotel which has been modernised. There were some issues - the TV picture was awful and it was impossible to watch, the water pressure for the shower was very poor, the toiletries were cheap, and the tops of... More

Dear DavJo12, Thank you for your review. I was sorry to read that you weren't satisfied with your bedroom. Had you informed us we would have resolved this issues for you or moved you to another room.
