Overview

“Part luxury hotel, part eclectic art museum” (Frommer’s), Hotel Metropole provides “chic boutique” (The Guardian) accommodation in a prime Venice location. Set on the bustling Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront promenade, this “Oriental-tinged” (The Daily Telegraph) luxury hotel – where both Sigmund Freud and Marcel Proust once stayed - is housed in a traditional palazzo dating to the 16th century, and is just a few minutes’ walk from major sights including the Bridge of Sighs, the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Square, home to the city’s landmark Basilica and Teatro La Fenice opera house. The 15th-century Ca’ d’Oro palace on the Grand Canal, the elegant Rialto Bridge and Gallerie dell'Accademia, a museum dedicated to historic Venetian art, are all within a 20-minute walk of the hotel.

The hotel’s “labyrinth of intimate, opulent spaces” (Fodor’s) is dotted with “museum-standard family collections” (The Daily Telegraph) of “antique fans, crucifixes, corkscrews, pearl handbags, bookends and nut crackers” (The Guardian). There’s an Moorish-inspired wood-panelled bar with a “smoky mirrored ceiling” (The Daily Telegraph) serving light meals and cocktails, as well as a Michelin-starred restaurant offering an “excellent juxtaposition of classic and innovative takes on Italian favourites” (The Daily Telegraph). Guests can also relax in the picturesque garden filled with jasmine, orange and palm trees, and lined with gazebos.

“Sumptuously appointed” (Fodor’s) guestrooms are individually decorated with a “classic Oriental theme” (Frommer’s). All feature “beautiful brocade soft furnishings and antiques — from 18th century pieces to Art Deco and Eastern items” (The Daily Telegraph), along with modern amenities including TVs, free Wi-Fi and mini bars. Higher tariff rooms add private terraces with lagoon views, whilst suites come with lounge areas and distinct touches ranging from roof terraces and marble bathrooms to in-room fountains and a mother-of-pearl-lined tubs. Room service is available.
