The Metropolis Hotel is located in Rome's city center, in close proximity of the subway, half way between Saint Peter's Basilica and the Old City Center.
"Wonderful staff and location"
The staff was very friendly and readily available to make my stay a pleasant one. The location was perfect to visit many sites close by. The hotel room was a little small but very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
"Wonderful Hotel & Staff"
My wife and I had the pleasure to stay at this Hotel, the Staff were wonderful and very polite and helpful nothing was to much trouble for them. As for the hotel it is a five minute walk to the metro where you can get to all the major attractions in Rome. If you are feeling energetic the Vatican is a fifteen Minuit walk. Our room was excellent clean and modern with all you would expect from a four star hotel.
"Modern rooms, great location but not a 4-star hotel"
We stayed there for two nights, we had planned visiting The Vatican too early and it was walking distance from the hotel, like 15 minutes. It was also walking distance from Fontana di Trevi (25 minutes). The room was clean and modern, the bathroom was well stocked with amenities. It did not have good lighting. The receptionists were very polite and spoke spanish very well so they could help us with some recommendations.
"Excellent hotel for a weekend break!"
I visited Hotel Metropolis with my family for a 4 day Rome holiday. We arrived late in the evening (1am) and we were welcomed by a smiling receptionist. He spoke good English (although not a problem as I am Italian) and arranged our hotel rooms immediately. He briefly told us about breakfast etc as it was late and we were tired but explained if we needed more info come down in the morning and they would be happy to help. Our rooms were absolutely spotless on arrival (we had triple rooms). The bathroom was well stocked with amenities and clean towels were hanging up! The bed linen was clean and pressed; and the room just screamed chic! The only downside was the lighting as it was too dark for me but you can't please everyone can you'!' Breakfast is served from 7:30 until 10:30 which was perfect as we had a few early mornings due to sightseeing. There was a great variety on offer from cereals, different breads for toast, cheeses and meats to various teas and coffees! The waiting staff were always happy and eager to help in any way they can! On the first night, we asked the receptionist if she could recommend a good restaurant as the hotel restaurant was closed on a Sunday. She told us about a small family run restaurant around the corner called L'aquila dell'oro" - oh my god absolutely amazing and fantastic value for money! So much so, we went back every night! Would totally recommend this restaurant! The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the Vatican and a 2 minute walk from the metro line Lepanto which will take you into the heart of Rome, however I think you can walk anywhere in Rome as long as you have a good pair of shoes on! Generally, this hotel was better than I imagined it would be. I will definitely be staying here again when I visit Rome and will be recommending it to all my family and friends! Grazie per tutti!
"Lovely hotel, good location, brilliant staff"
We booked this hotel as part of a Jet2 City Break as we were looking for a more modern style of hotel rather than a traditional Italian styled hotel (by request of my youngest daughter). We were met at the airport by a private transfer car (and also had one booked for our return journey) which worked out at about £45 each way....quite reasonable if there are a few of you. The hotel was a good standard, staff were very helpful and spoke great English. The continental breakfast had a good variety of food including a couple of warm items and although the dinner menu was a little limited the food was great and reasonably priced (50 euros for 3 of us). Our room was 101 which had plenty of space for us BUT was quite close to street level and the local tram stop so could be quite noisy (this didn't bother us as we were so tired from our days out we slept very well). The minibar was well stocked, the in hotel Wi Fi was excellent, there were complimentary toiletries and bedding/towels were changed every day as required. There also looked to be Sky TV which we never got round to using. The hotel location could be considered a little out of the way but for us it was good, loads of restaurants and a mini market just around the corner (but bear in mind most restaurants don't open until 7.30pm if you were planning on eating locally). One night the concierge even helped us order some takeaway pizzas to our room which was from a place that they recommended and tasted great. We caught a couple of taxis to and from the train station for various days out and depending on the volume of traffic the fare was between 10 and 16 euros (the meter still runs when the taxis are stuck in traffic). As the hotel is quite close to the Vatican we ordered our exploration of Rome by starting there first....our route was: -Vatican and St Peters (early to avoid queues) -Castel Sant Angelo -Pantheon -Shopping in the designer shops (mainly window) -Spanish Steps -Hard Rock Cafe -Capuchin Crypt -Colosseum -Palatine Hill (Great Value for money as kids are free) -Then a bus tour to take in what we'd missed One day we also caught the train to Naples and then onto Sorrento for the day. It made for a long day with 2.5 hours travelling each way, setting off from Rome at 8.44am and arriving back at 8.30pm but definitely worth it as we called in to Pompeii on the way. To do this you need to buy tickets for the Rome-Naples leg of the journey from the station in Rome (44 euros per adult, 22 per child) and specify you would like the direct/fast train. Then you buy separate tickets from Naples to Sorrento (8 euros return). The whole process is very simple and all station staff speak good English (although I tried my hand at Italian). We also took a train to the seaside port of Anzio one day. It was an hours journey and cost about 20 euros for all 3 of us. As it was off season many places in Anzio were closed but the beach was accessible and we had a great meal in the town square. All in all this hotel was a great base for our adventures in Rome. It was comfy and just far enough out of the way. Hope that my review is of some use and I would recommend the hotel.... to sum it up.... it was quiet, comfortable and had great staff
