    Individual guest reviews

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      We had two very comfortable queen beds in a quite spacious room on the 3rd floor. Breakfast was very basic but acceptable. Staff (all three that we met) was very friendly. Right next to skytrain entrance which means easy access to all of Vancouver and the airport.

      Next time will probably try to get the top floor as we can hear the upstairs people walking in their rooms. We happened to be facing the street so skytrain noise was not a problem, the freight train locomotives though made a lot of noise (blowing the horns) during sleeping hours. A/C fan's white noise helped to minimize the noise.

      This little hotel is a bit of a nice surprise... very reasonable prices, interesting old building that has been well maintained. Very pleasant stay.

      you need a code to get in as there is no desk clerk at night - a bit of a hassle

      The room was clean and spacious.

      The walls are very thin. You can hear everything going on in the next room...everything...if you know what I mean. Kept me awake half the night. Also, one of the guests had a dog and they played fetch in the hallway...very anoying/

      The friendliness and courtesy of the staff was matched by the comfort and cleanliness of the room.

      My wife and I wished that more of the Victorian features had been retained.

      friendly staff, nice continental breakfast, comfortable and huge bed

      i had discomfort in the fact that there was no one at the front desk 24 hours

      Excellent all round with good Bar and Dining. Very convenient for visits to Vancouver.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      Clean rooms, quiet on the front side and friendly staff.

      Would of been nice to know that the a parking pass could be purchased at the hotel as the one that I purchased from the lot was only good till 6am so I ended up paying double for parking.

      Close to SkyTrain station, in ok neighborhood. Reasonable breakfast. Pub downstairs, in house.

      In the case of a room immediately above the pub's outdoor space, somewhat noisy on warm evenings, but only until early in the night.

      I have stayed at the Met for both business and family visits and I have promoted the hotel as a place to stay to my fellow Mason's during a conference. In short I like the convenient location for all three groupings. The size is limited but that in many ways adds to its' charm, the staff get to know who their guests are in very short order and are very keen to be of service. We noticed the maid service was a little disorganized and did not leave enough toiletries all the time but when asked they were brought up to our room immediately. Another sign of good service and interest in their guests. The beds are very comfortable but they are also the place one would sit to watch the new flat screen TV's which isn't that agreeable (at least for us it wasn't). The feeling of an another era, the high ceilings and and the general deco is very relaxing and chosen with care. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others (and we do)!

      As mentioned, the maid service was a little distracted at times. We wish the chairs were just a little more comfortable to sit on to watch TV. Parking: now that would be our only real irritation having to leave one's car in a public car park approximately 3-4 blocks from the hotel depending on the weather can be a real irritant and then paying $10.00 a day. My wife didn't care to leave it there in the dead of night after a long evening out and then have to walk alone back to the hotel so I needed to stay with her to increase her sense of ease. We realize this is the only practical method in this 'city of hills' and limited street parking but it is a 'medium' sized problem for a guest.

      The staff were very helpful with train and bus schedules to get me where I needed to go.

    • Single
      8.8

      My room was spacious and comfortable. The staff made a huge difference by helping get my phone charger back to me when I left it in the room.

      The train noise can be a little annoying, but with earplugs I slept very well.

    • Single
      9.6

      The met was inexpensive, it was a short walk to the conference I was attending, variety of restaurants and coffee shops nearby, near sky train station. Effortless to get from airport to the hotel, easy to get to metro town(large shopping complex) Ask for a quiet room as some could be noisier than others, Staff really friendly and helpful.

    • Single

      It's next door to the Skytrain station; spacious room, good and free wifi, convenience store and Subway downstairs

      Can't open window, so you need to turn on air-conditioning to get fresh air, which is rather loud; if you turn it off, you can hear the trains; except for wifi, no extras, no coffee-making facilities, no safe; once I found the door open when I came back as it didn't shut properly but apparently they fixed it after I told them.
