“Beutiful Hotel, fantastic location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

We stayed at the Metropole for three nights in October 2011. Since our flight arrived in the evening we organised a pickup from the hotel, which was a great experience arriving at the Metropole's own little jetty in a canal off the grand canal. The room was nice, with a great bathroom. We had a balcony with views across the grand canal, which made our stay there unforgetable. The staff at the reception desk are very friendly and helpful. The complemtary water taxi to Murano islan was great.
Highly recommended hotel in Venice.

My husband spent the week there to celebrate my birthday. It was our first visit, we usually stay at the Danielli. This hotel was perfect. The staff kind and helpful, and not grumpy and suffering from tourism burnout, as they do at the Danielli. Everyone was cheerful, service spot on and the breakfast and bar wonderful. I was very surprised to see we got such a large and well appointed room without having upgraded. This place is a class act among a lot of others that really make a tourist feel exploited. Bravo!!!

A jewel.
The Metropole is one of the jewels in the crown of five star Venetian Hotels. It is visually stunning with a location that is prime. Staff is courteous, helpful and well informed. The Metropole is expensive but worth every euro; balcony and terrace rooms are worth the extra. My Youtube video of the common rooms is attached to the top of this review.

Room Tip: Balcony and terrace rooms are worth the extra.

The hotel is very well-located, three bridges from St Mark's Square. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. The buffette breakfast can be taken in their lovely garden and transport to the airport by water taxi is convenient, if very expensive at 110 euros. The staff are helpful but our room was not ready till 2 p.m.

My son and I just returned from a three week trip to Europe (England, Paris, Berlin, Venice & Barcelona). Of all the places we stayed, the Hotel Metropole and Venice were the most magical! The hotel is EVERYTHING that I expected a hotel in Venice to be. The lounge area is sumptuous AND relaxing. The garden terrace was an oasis to enjoy coffee in the AM or drinks in the PM. Our room was comfortable and had a lovely view of the lagoon. Located right around the corner from St. Mark's Square, the hotel was in the center of the action. My favorite spot to relax was the vaporetto stop on the side canal. The staff couldn't have been MORE accommodating-arranging water taxis to Murano or suggesting dinner spots (be sure to try Osteria Oliva Nera-one of the BEST meals of my life!). I CAN"T wait to return to Venice and the Hotel Metropole!

My husband and 2 kids 8 & 10 years old just stayed at this hotel. It was a 2 min walk to St. Mark's square. It was right on the water. The hotel arranged a private water taxi for us to the airport. It really was a great location. It was 1 min from the vaparetto stop but we needed a private water taxi because we had too much luggage and couldn't go over the bridge with it. Rooms were very clean & spacious. Bathrooms were very clean & nice too. They had a free water taxi to murano too. They included the breakfast buffet and it was very good. we were sad to leave but would definitely stay there again. It was a great experience!
