The charm of this hotel is the result of a unique atmosphere, halls enriched with period furniture, an impressive antiques collection, and elegant rooms and suites, all of which are full of personality and generously equipped with original furniture. It is superbly located, offering an enchanting view over the lagoon facing the island of San Giorgio and a few steps from Piazza San Marco. Housed in a building that dates back to the 16th century, it offers its guests rooms that are pervaded by a somewhat Oriental allure, with burning incense spreading a delicate fragrance. The splendid Citrus Garden with its exotic palms is the perfect backdrop for an evening meal from the 2-Michelin-stars Met restaurant. Where the unique fusion menus of the chef had won him an enviable reputation and guarantee that the guests will feel utterly satisfied with their experience.

We stayed at the Metropole for four days and it was a great experience. The hotel can be reached directly by boat taxi from the airport and is centrally located. The service was outstanding and everyone in the hotel very friendly. We can only recommend the Metropole.
Everything was charming and top-notch throughout our three day stay. Staff were exceptional in multiple languages, with an ability to recall your room number and particular preferences without you having to ask for anything.
The hotel, built in the 14th century, is beautifully decorated with unique antiques and has quite a history - Freud, Thomas Mann and Marcel Proust stayed here. Vivaldi taught music here. They recently opened a spa that you can block for couples. Drinks at the Oriental bar were perfect.
If you like the challenge of negotiating public transport like we do, the hotel is conveniently located right at the vaporetto stop San Zaccara, although it has its own dock so for a fee they will pick you up from the people mover stop or Tronchetto and you can arrive in style. From the hotel, St. Mark's Square is only a few minutes walk.
Definitely the hotel we will return to on our next trip to Venice.
We just spent two glorious days in the enchanting city of Venice after the extremely difficult lockdown in Italy, and what a dream it was! And what better place to stay than the elegant and oh so Venetion Metropole Hotel!! The location could not be better, just a stone's throw from San Marco and in walking distane to many of the city's conic sights. The hotel itself is impeccable, clean and just oozes with Venetian charm. The beds are super comfy and you feel pampered from the minute you arrive. The staff was attentive to our every need. We stayed in the luscious Prestige room, overlooking a beautiful and peaceful garden, and breakfast was top notch for its service and for the selection of delicacies on offer, both sweet and savoury. Make your next trip to Venice even more memorable by staying at this stunning hotel... you will not regret it!
