Convenient location but significant road noise
I made a mistake in booking for one pax instead of two and so the hotel wanted to charge me more. Plus breakfast for two pax was extra as well as a better sea view room. It ended up being 160€ per night, much more than what I booked. I did a quick check at for the same date and it was still cheaper than what they charged me. I consoled myself by having a sea view room. Still the view was only partial. The hotel is right next to the main road and so it gets noisy at night from the buses and bikes that come through. There is no aircon and so it can get stuffy and so their suggestion is to leave the balcony door open hence the road noise. The elevator is very small and so only two pax with large suitcases can fit. Front desk staff is helpful. Breakfast is decent and what I like is the fresh orange juicer station. All in all, location is near town and train station but given what I was charged extra, I would probably opt for Hotel Continental which was just next door, a bit further from the main road and with a full frontal view of sea.

Winter get-away!
We were traveling through town for a few days. We were surprised at how much we enjoyed staying at the Hotel Metropole. The best surprised was the gym and SPA. It was fantastic and so refreshing. Although the pool was closed for the winter, the spa more than made up for it and at no additional charge. The only thing I didn't appreciate was a per person cover charge for eating at the restaurant. That doesn't seem like a good way to encourage guest to dine-in.
