A nice old hotel in a great location, my room was large, warm, and clean and a buffet breakfast in the morning with views of the river lee. over night car parking is avaible a short distance from hotel. Bus and train stations and Patrick street start of the shopping area are a five minute walk from hotel.

Room Tip: a room at the rear of the building , no road noise

I recently stayed again in December 2012 at the Metropole. Once again, really friendly staff, excellent location, no problems with car parking. A lovely old hotel with modern comforts, only a few minutes walk from the city centre. Do have breakfast as you won't get a better view of the river Lee in the city!

My daughter & I booked this over the internet while travelling. It was wonderful, Parking was easy to find(just around the corner) The staff was amazing, especially the front desk. They answered all our enquiries, cheerfully, no matter how stupid the question seemed.They knew wehre everything in Cork was:) The breakfast was great. Again, great service staff there too. Hotel was within walking distance of all the shops in Cork. per irishDave2005's comment The building across the street may not be modern and immaculate but they were old and quaint. I did feel very safe here.

had business in Cork again so went back to the Gresham. As before lovely staff, friendly attentive manager, lovely reasonably priced food, chatty bar staff. Nice big family room. Kids enjoyed it. Only bad thing was a rather unfriendly lady working in the gym, surly and detached - pity because its a nice gym otherwise.
