    Historical Traveler Reviews Metropole Hotel Venice

    The Perfect Spot

    from

    The Metropole boasts a spectacular location combined with exceptional service. Every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. The staff are warm and welcoming. Of all the rooms we enjoyed in Europe, this was the largest. We had a great walk-in closest, sitting area, raised sleeping area and fabulous bathroom completely tiled in mosaic. We also enjoyed the air conditioning - a rare find in parts of Europe! We can't imagine staying in any other hotel in Venice - The Metropole is PERFECT and truly made our visit to Venice unforgettable.

    Unforgettable!

    from

    Located along the Riva degli Schiavoni, the hotel had superb views of the lagoon! It was also very convenient because the Piazza San Marco and the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop were just a few minutes walk away. The service was one of the best we've experienced on our trip and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We expected the breakfasts in Venice hotels to be generally mediocre but we were delighted at the Metropole's breakfast spread. It was one of the best hotels of our Italy trip and I highly recommend it.

    As romantic as you can get!

    from

    My wife and I spent the first leg of our Honeymoon in Venice and were quite pleased with the Metropole. From the moment our water taxi pulled up to the water door, till the moment we left for Florence we were treated like gold. The Lobby and hallways can provide hours of sightseeings itself. It's an antique museum in it's own right! The room was absolutely georgeous, from the canopy bed to the beautiful red cloth wall covering, to the stunning marble bathroom. (The closet in the room also deserves and honorable mention as it was a walk-in. We were dead set on having some nice dinners while in town and had quite a spread of dress clothes that needed hanging up immediately) There was a separate sitting room with a couch and a tv that made the room feel more like home. Overall, the Metropole was a home run and as romantic as I could ever imagine for a honeymoon. We were quite sad to leave and are looking forward to returning.

    Tremendous Stay

    from

    Venice is incredible. It is unllike any city anywhere. Everything at the Metropole was wonderful with one exception. Our travel package included breakfast, but we found out too late that they billed us for our breakfasts. So be sure to check your bill before you leave. Otherwise, the staff, service, and accomodations, were all top notch. A Super hotel!The walking tour of St. Marks and the Dulce's palace are a must! Also, the free boat ride and tour of the Murano glass factory were great. Some people complain about being pressured to buy, but we already had our hearts set on some gunuine Murano glass, and were very satisfied. As a bonus, Mr. and Mrs. Murano (21st generation to own the factory) rode back to venice with us. What an experience!The canals and small "streets/alleys" are mesmerizing. A gondoliere told us that there are 425 bridges over Venice's canals. It was fun getting lost on those back alleys and stumbling upon incredible stores. restaurants. cafes,churches and other 600 year old architecture. We are definately going back in the very near future.

    Ve' nice!

    from

    Indeed, very nice, Venice & the Metropole. Kind staff, good service, a romantic atmosphere, great location. Even the food was excellent. And so was the Bar. We will definitely return. I have been to Venice before, at the Londra Palace and the Giorgione, but the Metropole is now my favourite hotel in Venice.

    Lived like a king...

    from

    Stayed at the Metropole in February 2003. Booked a junior suite and was very impressed. The hotel is very atmospheric, the staff are very helpful and the restaurant was excellent. The breakfast buffet was fresh and substantial. A very memorable stay in a very memorable city. We will be booking a break in Venice again and the Metropole will be one of the highlights of our stay!

    Sunshine in Venice

    from

    Hotel stay was a delight from start to finish, room was excelent, food very good and staff helpful and friendly at all times Would recommed to anyone

    Wonderful!

    from

    We just returned from Italy, and the highlight of our trip was staying at the Metropole in Venice. In addition to Venice being a wonderful and enchanting city, the Metropole was just over the top. Pulling up to their lobby in a water taxi made you feel like you were royality. The rooms were decorated with care and the service was excellent. We can't wait to go back!

    Antiques Showplace

    from

    I was there May 1-3 2002. Excellent location close to Plaza San Marco, very clean, elegant operation. The whole hotel is an antique showplace, the lobby, the dining room, and the hallways. Staff treats you as you would be expect to be treated. Enjoyed the everything about the visit except the breakfast. It is adequate for the items you pick up at the buffet and the coffee service is alright, but don't expect to get the advertised orange juice. They just never bring it to you. One other item disturbed me, the breakfast waitress took pains to publicly correct a female member of our party on the proper use of the formal and familar forms of vorrei. I wanted to say something about her rudeness but I was asked not to as it was our last morning there.

    All in all I recomend highly.

    Memories are Made of This

    from

    Two years ago my boyfriend-to-be seduced me by taking me to Venice to stay at the Metropole. And I've never looked back.

    The staff were fantastic and attended to our every whim, the hotel was beautiful and the rooms made me feel like a queen. The entire trip was magical from start to finish, and the setting certainly helped. I will never forget those few days, and want to thank the staff (if they're reading) for all they did to help (especially the bell-boy who gave me his last cigarette!). I will certainly be back, and this time I might even treat my man!

We walked our way back to our hotel, stopping in various shops, including one for gelato and one in which Kristen and Ali stopped for ten minutes to get the dead skin eaten off their feet by fish. That was quite interesting! We went back to the hotel then and spent about an hour with the eight of us taking turns showering and playing cards, then headed to bed. It was a great day, and I seriously love ...

    One of the cities that I was most excited to visit going into this trip was Venice. Ever since watching movies like The Italian Job and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade I was able to recognize the uniqueness and beauty that Venice could provide. With that being said, I was extremely excited to spend my second full weekend in Italy exploring Venice. Before we left we were warned that Venice may be experiencing flooding while we were there, and that certain parts of the city may be ...

    The trip to Venice was awesome! Even though it was raining the entire time we were there, we still made the best of it and enjoyed walking around the city. The day started bright and early with a 7 hour bus ride to Venice. Once we got there in the afternoon, we headed to Piazza San Marco or St. Mark's Square. St. Mark's Square is the central area of Venice and is referred to as the "The Piazza" and the other smaller squares are called "campi". Right when you enter St. ...
