We had stayed in Metropolis when we were visiting Rome for our anniversary. I was expecting much more from the hotel considering the price we paid per night and the fact they mentioned it was a 4 star hotel, I had much more in mind. We had booked a standard room, but it was too tiny. The lighting in the room was not enough and dull, making the room look even more gloomier and compact. The bathroom was just about okay, surprisingly no latches or locks on the door. The shower room was like a dungeon with no lights and the dark tiles makes you feel a bit claustrophobic. It was mentioned on the booking site some of their rooms have bath tubs, they should mention that it only applies for the superior and deluxe rooms and not the standard rooms. The ply on the bathroom and bedroom furniture were coming off. The TV was fitted in such an awkward position that you could hardly see anything due to the glare. For a 4 star hotel they didn't even have iron in the hotel. Glad they had a very good breakfast menu, with lot many options but on the other had very minimal options for the dinner menu. There was no drinks menu at all, just 4 drinks to choose from. The hotel is about 20 minutes walking distance to the Vatican. The metro station (Lepanto) is just 2 minutes walk, so reaching to other tourist attractions is not very difficult.
