Convenient and good deal, but room for improvement
Staff was friendly / helpful. Breakfast was included and had a great variety of foods. Room had reasonable amount of space and plenty of storage areas. Location is very hard to beat: 2 blocks to beach; close to restaurants on Ben Yehuda and Bograshov; close to Carmel Market.
Due to large groups, lobby was often crowded, as was dining area at breakfast. However, crowds never caused long delay for us. Hotel did not have printers available for printing airline boarding passes. Front desk staff offered me to e-mail boarding passed for them to print (but my airline did not include that option). Trash can in bathroom had not been emptied, and bathroom had faint "off" odor.
With a stay at Metropolitan Hotel, you'll be centrally located in Tel Aviv, steps from Ben Yehuda Street and 9 minutes by foot from Gordon Beach. Featured amenities include a business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
