The hotel is tucked away in a side alley off Via dell'Indipendenza, a main road with tons of shopping, restaurants, etc. Hotel Staff was very nice, WiFi worked well, AC worked well (which was great in the hot summer weather), and the bed was decently comfortable.
Breakfast was OK - due to COVID, the normal buffet was not available. The Staff did their best to serve you what you wanted, but I found the overall selection lacking.
There is a rooftop bar which was wonderful to relax in and enjoy the evening, however the drinks are very expensive.
A good choice of hotel overall, with a fantastic location in the heart of the city, and decent rooms.
Note there is no parking on site, though there are many parking garages within the vicinity. I parked at the Parcheggio RIVA RENO | APCOA, a very nice, underground garage about a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel on 23-26July, it was excellent. Location is amazing, walking distance to all major attractions. Our room ( 404) has a private outdoor seating area, we sat outside every nights with our glass of wine, absolutely perfect. The room is spotlessly clean, comfy bed. Amazing staff especially the front desk lady who worked mostly evening shift ( sorry we didn???t get her name) she is most charming, and to the lady who re-set the safe in our room you are an angel ! Also, a special mention to the lady who looked after us at breakfast, thanks for being so accommodating. We loved every single minute of our stay and can???t wait to be back. Thank you Hotel Metropolitan.
