We stayed at the Metropolis for a few days and it served as an excellent base for our trip to Rome. The hotel is comfortable with decent rooms wth pleasant high ceilings and wooden beams with electronic velux windows which was pretty cool!
The bathrooms were of a decent size with good facilities that worked properly! It is by no means a luxury hotel but it definitely does its job and is a good place to get to the rest of Rome. It is one block away from Lepanto metro which takes two stops to get to Piazza di Spagna. We walked everywhere though - it doesn't take long to get around and is a great way to see the city.
The area isn't fantastic, there aren't really any other hotels around but there doesn't need to be. The breakfast was decent and provided us with a good energy boost for the long 12-13km walking days. The staff were very helpful and answered any questions we had and printed out the e-tickets we booked for the Vatican Museums and Colosseum visits (I would definitely recommend pre-booking these to skip queues!).
All in all a good hotel, good service, good facilities and a good location, if you don't mind walking/hitching the metro to get to the tourist centre.
