My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Metro for 6 nights in August. We had booked it because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We had spent a long time trying to decide where to stay. But we are very happy we made this decision.
We requested a room on the higher floors and got one just below the rooftop and it was really nice. I think it was a new room. My husband also told them it was my birthday and they had left some chocolates in the room. This hotel is great value for money. The breakfast is good. You get tea, coffee, fruit, bagels, toast, pastries and muffins. Enough to last you until lunchtime!
The location is great too! It’s got Fifth Avenue on one side and Macy’s on the other. Times Square is only 5 minutes away. I definitely recommend doing the bus hop-on-hop-off thing. As you get unlimited rides for 72 hours we used the bus to go downtown for dinner as well. Saved us on paying for the underground or a taxi.
There was one girl in reception who was a bit moody but the rest were helpful enough. I also used the beauty salon and the lady who runs it is really lovely. I had to wait for my nail polish to dry and she told me lots about her life in America. She’s originally from Romania.
Also opposite the hotel a bit further down towards Fifth Avenue, there is a delicatessen store run by a Korean woman. At the back there is a little restaurant type thing which is amazing. My husband and I have lived in Hong Kong and are usually really fussy about our Chinese food but this was really good.
All in all it was a good experience. The hotel is clean, good value for money and in a great location. I would definitively recommend it.
