This is not a luxury hotel but it is excellently located and priced at about 1/3 the cost of similarly located, more up-market hotels. We stayed 3 nights at a room on the 9th floor. The package included breakfast, hard wired internet and a fruitjuice/soft drink complimentary minibar. The room was clean and well appointed with excellent lighting and a small but adequate bathroom with good hot water, nice new, clean linen and plenty of good quality toiletries. Breakfast was average, but if you stuck to cereal/eggs/bacon/toast ypu could start your day very nicely. Staff were friendly, tho the usual shy, nervous attitude of local staff had to be overcome with some friendly greetings and conversation. We arranged a taxi to the A/P and got a very nice , clean taxi with an excellent driver. For the budget traveller, with reasonable expectations, the Metropole is the genuine article, I would happily stay there again.
