“Very nice room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I stayed two nights in this simple, but very good hotel in Recife. I didn't use the restaurant, gym, swimming pool so I can't really give my opinion on those, but the room was very nice, clean. The bathroom was especially nice, with a wonderful shower.
There are two LCD TVs, one in the "living room" the other in the bedroom. Beds are nice and confortable. The bedroom has a nice, big window that opens all the way. There's a little balcony with a nice view of the area.

Staff was nice and friendly. Check-in and check-out was pretty quick and effective and they also helped me when I needed a cab.

I made reservation 100% through the internet, including payment. Not needing to call anybody and navigate through annoying "phone menus" is a big plus these days. They even called me the day before my arrival just to confirm everything.

There are no great frills in this hotel but if you're looking for a nice stay in a good location then Metropolis may meet your expectation.
Rooms are well-equiped. Staff is friendly and attentive.
The hotel's restaurant offers a remarkable menu but, unexpectedly a poor breakfast - although the quality is good.
Easy to come and go once there are lots of hospital nearby what means you will find cabs anytime.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

I've used it several times since Setember 2011 until December 2011. It is well located, has an acceptable rate for waht they offer. Rooms are very spacious - all suites. the premises are on the spartan side, but the bed is comfy enough and you have your own kitchnette if you feel like cooking. The neighborhood is very quite due to the proximity of several hospitals, making it also easy to find a taxi at any time. The breakfast could improve as it is very limited in options, but acceptable in quality. The service is more nice than well prepared, but they do eventually solve your problems.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spacious. I would go for the higher floors as the windows are single and it can be...

This hotel is ideally located in the middle of Recife, although it isn't seafront, its near of the many sightseeing places in Recife as Boa viagem beach, old Recife, Graças neighborhood and more. Nothing in this hotel is really fantastic, but the staff is friendly, the room is very spacious with a living room with a sofa bed, AC, TV and american cuisine (equiped with a small cooker, microwave, mini fridge and sink), a spacious bathroom (without bath but with a good shower), a balcony and a bedroom with a nice bed, another tv and AC.
I have to advice that i was there by car, so i don't know if the offer of public transportation is good, but taxi cetainly will solve the problem for those that don't have their own car.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2011

We stayed one night at this hotel in Recife.
Desk person was super and helpful until it came time to honor our voucher for breakfast - cafe da manana. Her superior got very obnoxious and said no! we have to confirm with the travel company at 9AM. We checked out before 9AM. So no breakfast.
Another concern was that the A/C never cooled the room below 24 degrees. A bit warm.

They offer apartments with a small living area with a varanda and a bedroom. Flat screen tv and cable in the bedroom and box tv in the living room. The staff was very accomodating with taxi help, restaurants and banks as well as a few things in the room. Everyone is willing to help with making your stay comfortable. Decent breakfast.
True, it's still a box hotel chain and the location isn't great, but then again it's Recife. Other reviewers complain that's it's overpriced - but these days what isn't in Brasil? Get used to it!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

Due to the fact that there were no better choices I selcted this hotel for a recent business trip to Recife. I cannot confirm the good reports I have read on tripadvisor.com regarding this hotel. It is just one more soulless hotel in Brazil which is totally overpriced for what you get. Unfortunately there are no better options at the moment in Recife (there is not even a IBIS hotel). Therefore you have to stick to places like the Mercure Recife Metropolis (by the way: the name "Metropolis" is a bad joke for this hotel and/or city); The bed in the room is small and the sofa was worn. Staff is just average. Breakfast too. Internet is poor. During my stay in Recife I changed to another hotel which unfortunately was not better.
