The Metropole Hotel, Cork
Dirty toilet and construction
Initially we were super excited to stay at the Metropole because of its closeness to everything within the city. We got into our room only to discover that the outside of the toilet hadn’t been cleaned and had a distinct urine smell. When we checked in we were told that the hotel was going through renovations and that all we would hear in the morning was the construction workers dropping their stuff off at 8 and they wouldn’t start working until wrong, 8 am rolls around the next morning and we’ve got people drilling, pounding, slamming doors, you name it. We go down and request to be moved to another room of which they obliged but were told this time that they shouldn’t start working until 9.... The second room we were told was on the 4th foo

The Hotel was centric close to everything in Cork. To the Opera building to restaurants,points of interest and stores. The beds where nice and comfy crispy clean sheets slept like a baby . Super clean rooms and what make it even greater was the staff. Friendly and ready to guide you for a nice stay. Gonna miss John, Debbie and Michelle. I stay a week and do to the snow storm have to stay extra 3 nights more. They where very helpful always with a smile. Thank you so much guys I really enjoy my stay. Hope to come back soon.
