Located above famous Café Nicola, the Metrópole combines art nouveau style with modern comforts (including free Wi-Fi) and a friendly vibe. The inte- rior is a throwback to the 1920s, with individually decorated rooms containing period furniture; com- pared to other hotels in the area, the room rates have thankfully marked time too.
Bathrooms are spacious and decorated in white marble. The lounge bar overlooks Rossio; it was from these windows that political leaders such as Mário Soares addressed the people during the 1974 Revolution. It’s peaceful now, though: rooms are double-glazed and quiet at night.
