We loved our stay in the Hotel Metropole during our trip to Lake Como. The hotel is right on the waterfront, near the ferries, and centrally located. Perfect location. Our room, rm 217, was big, with a sitting room and a balcony overlooking the lake. The bed was king size and very comfortable. The room and the bathroom was very clean. The desk staff was outstanding. They went out of their way each time we had questions. I couldn't say enough how much they helped us out. The only reason I wouldn't give a "perfect" rating is because of the food at the hotel restaurant. We ate lunch on the waterfront patio one day. The view was fantastic but the food was only OK. It wasn't bad. It wasn't great. Saying it was OK is the best description. Also, the glass of house wine we ordered wasn't good. The glass was too small and the flavor was sub-par. This in a region with great wine everywhere you turn. We were disappointed. And the buffet breakfast we had each morning, I would rate it as "good". Not great. I don't mean to be picky about the food. Just trying to be accurate in describing the hotel instead of being a "gushy" and saying everything was great.
