Top Tip - book direct with the hotel for a free breakfast, and the prices are the same as with any online travel agent!
The Metro hotel is a great find, and you can't go wrong staying here, the location is excellent being right in the middle of the major shopping district with literally hundreds of restaurants and cafes within 2 minutes walk. Metro stations are close by, and major attractions are easily walkable.
Upside down hotel with the reception on the top floor which is a little confusing when you first arrive. The Breakfast offering was slightly limited in choice but still good with tasty pastries and excellent coffee from their make-it-yourself machine.
We had a queen deluxe, which was accurately described on the website but in reality was a little compact which leads me to think that maybe the standard smaller room available may be too small for 2 adults with luggage to enjoy.The décor was modern and clean and the room had everything you could want, the bathroom mirrored this being small but perfectly formed. My only moan about the room was that it got very warm, and despite it being around zero degrees outside we still had to have the air/con on all night.
The location sells this hotel alone, but with the price being significantly lower than other similar rated hotels you can't go wrong, and the free breakfast for booking direct is a fantastic bonus.
