Do not go there...

... unless you like to be ripped off.

The hotel's perfect location and the admittingly wonderful restaurant might be tempting - but be aware that the staff at the reception is there to join Venetians in daylight-robbery. Examples? Here we go: At numerous occasions I overheard the receptionist suggesting complimentary excursions to Murano island, organised by the City's tourism agency. This "special occasion" is a forced sale of Murano glassware - you don't see anything of the island and the "one-hour-tour" takes you half a day if you don't buy.
If you command a taxiboat to take you to the railway station when leaving the hotel and you insist that the taxi driver puts on the meter (yes they have meters and official price regulations) you will find you credit card debited with more than twice the difference when you are back at home.

So, if you work hard for your money and Venice is ment to be a once in your life experience, don't let corrupted hotel staff spoil your trip. I wish you will find a better place.

Hotel Metropole is exceptional in every way, making it difficult to leave on our daily excursions into Venice. It offers luxury at its best – fabulous décor, fascinating museum-quality art collections, soft piano music, relaxed tea times and fine dining. It is certainly a splurge to stay here and well worth it. At the very least, stop in for afternoon tea or make a reservation for dinner at the elegant Met Restaurant.

Top Local Tips for Venice

caffe quadri and cafe levena a fortune to sit in piazza san marco and have the worst cup of coffee and worst gelato you can find in venice. but you do get to sit for as long as you like.

The Time to go to Venice The time to go to Venice (and other European destinations) is in the Winter. There were really no crowds in February, making it much easier to get around the city but mainly, avoiding lines and throngs of tourists. Also, I expected to water in Venice to have a funny smell, based upon comments I had heard. I can say the water had absolutely no smell when we were out and about and it is quite a nice bluish color as well. I suspect that may not be the case in July or August/

Water taxi If you are the kind who travels with lots of baggage,you are going to need a hotel with a private water taxi entrance to avoid lugging the bags over several bridges to get to your hotel from a water bus stop.
