If you are looking for a very well located hotel with a Michelin-level restaurant in the old Grand Hotel style, the Metropole is for you. They are very accommodating, informative, and helpful. Likely not the most kid-friendly place just because of the style and older furniture and antiques around.

I find it hard to believe this hotel has received such high reviews. I recently stayed at the Metropole in Venice (end of 6/14) and was expecting it to be a nice experience. However, I along with three other friends did not enjoy our stay at all. I generally stay at 4 and 5 star hotels - this does NOT... More

A hotel with mountains of character and charisma. A million miles from the chain/brand hotels that you can find across the globe, this is a unique oasis of friendly stylish calm perched on the grand canal with excellent views and unbeatable convenience for all of the best that Venice can offer....2 minutes from its door on foot, or however long...

We stayed at the Metropole for our first leg of our 10 day Italian vacation. Very nice Hotel a rich history that goes back 500 years, even Sigmund Freud stayed here in 1895 according to the Hotel literature. My wife and I felt we were staying at a museum, where ever you turned there was an artifact collection of some... More

My partner and I were looking for a gem in the city of Venice; someplace unique and Venetian. We found it in Metropole. The decor is dark and sexy, the restaurant is gorgeous and delicious, and the staff was incredibly kind. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to the island of Murano leaving every 30 minutes or so, too!... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon, I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. We chose to arrive by private boat taxi which arrived at the hotels own private mooring. The staff were extremly welcoming and helpful and we were delighted to find that we had been upgraded to a room with a roof... More

We stayed here for four nights pre cruise. It is very expensive but we thought worth the price. Location,location,location. It was right on the Grand Canal, near water buses that got you everywhere and walking distance from many sights. The lobby and rooms are decorated in very heavy European style but the bathrooms were re done and modern! A lovely... More

AMAZING!!! Best hotel and staff I've ever met in ANY hotel ANYWHERE! They are all polite, friendly, and willing to help with any of your needs. Best part is the drinks in the bar are made with fresh fruit and the breakfast is of super high quality with eating on an outside terrace. Also, free taxi rides to and from... More

Perfect location, in the heart of it all! Room was spotless, looked recently updated. Bed and bedding was crisp, clean, and welcoming after a long day of sightseeing. Service was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is not included in this pricey hotel stay, that would be an additional 30 euros per day for a breakfast buffet, or 12 euros per day... More

We just returned from a trip to Italy and spent 2 nights in Venice. We’re so glad we chose The Metropole. Prior to our trip, I corresponded with the hotel on several occasions via email. They were always prompt and professional in responding and answered all my questions. We’re a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) and reserved... More
