I spent one night at the Metropol with my wife while our son was at a ice hockey camp in Romanshorn. Our dinner was delicious, fresh salad and a tasty cream of asparagus soup followed by a fish dish for my wife and a chicken breast with au gratin potatoes for me. The flan capped off a perfect dinner. Friendly,... More

I stayed here on business for more than 3 months. The people here were the positive ones, who make you forget that you are in a hotel. I was treated really as a guest in this Hotel. The views in the hotel is worth mentioning always, cause it is faces the lake and be it the sunrise or the sunset... More

friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms (although the bathrooms look like they have not been redone since the 70ties or 80ties) the food is good, although the breakfast is a little bit boring (standard hotel breakfast without any surprises) and the coffee could be bettet although the hotel is non-smoking, I got a room which smelled like heavy smoking inside...

This hotel can definitely boast with its magnificent view over lake Constance. Apart from the great view there is not a lot to say about this hotel. Average rooms with average service offered by staff. No airconditioning available which is terrible during peak summer time along with no access to the pool after 18h00. The restaurant offers good quality food,... More

Hi! I am from Brazil and I stayed in this Hotel during the week of Sept 22 in 2014. It's very well located, because it is in front of one of the many lakes in Switzerland, so from my room at the 4th floor I had a beautiful view everyday. Furthermore, there is a train station just across the street,... More

Always like staying at The Metropol, staff are always so helpful an example was that I needed my shirt ironing at short notice and what a good job was done. I didn't stay for dinner but breakfast was excellent. Room large with great view, I hope to be back soon, thanks.

Good standard business hotel with friendly staff in the alt-stadt of Arbon. Strong wifi in the rooms, excellent breakfast and the place is spotless. Some of the decor (especially the bar) is like a set from Miami Vice but that aside I'd recommend!

The Metropol is situated right on the banks of beautiful Bodensee, which you can see from every room and from the dining room. Nice rooms, good food (in the veranda - during spring and summer).Free car park. A wonderful promenade along the lake.Train and bus stations just across the road.
