Noisy hotel close to Station limited facilities

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: Staff were pleasant
Cons: Wifi, noise, cleanliness
Location: Close to the railway station and shopping complexes
There was no wifi in the rooms and no leads for minicomputers to the internet. My room was extremely noisy with bins being emptied into a large rubbish truck late at night and early morning on the cobbled street outside the room. The floor was gritty and remained so throughout the stay. One of the room lights did not work. There were no tissues in the bathroom and the toiletries were not replaced. There was no airconditioning but because of the noise I had to keep the window closed. My bathroom was set up for someone in a wheelchair, which luckily I do not need. There was no comment made about this when the room was allocated. Not somewhere I would ever return to or recommend.

A solid hotel, perhaps a bit pricey

Posted 11-Jul-2014
Location: Being in downtown Leeds is really convenient. You can catch the bus to the Uni or to anywhere else in town very easily.
Our room was very comfortable. The bed was excellent. The bathroom was nice, and although it was an old hotel, it has been modernized. I will say that those who are elderly or disabled would have a hard time climbing in and out of the bathtub in our room, which has very steep sides. The most serious complaint I have about the hotel is that the internet access is a huge pain. You can't connect to wireless in your room, and the service is patchy at best. I don't doubt this is because it's a big, old, heavy building, but a four-star hotel really ought to have faultless internet service.

Close to the centre of Leeds

Nice hotel, staff couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were small but adequate. No air conditioning in rooms but was supplied a fan although just circulated the hot air around. Overall nice place to stay

A pleasant stay at The Met

Posted 25-Jun-2014
Pros: See above.
Cons: A poor choice of keg beers in the bar; OK if you're 'a lager man'.
Location: The Met is 4 minutes walk from the railway station and as I was in Leeds to go to the Test at Headingley, it was in a good location for me.
It was great value for the price; B&B in Leeds wouldn't be much cheaper. A wide choice of good food. I had a very comfortable room with more than adequate facilities. I found the staff both very friendly and helpful

Nice looking hotel but some rooms not good.

Posted 16-Jun-2014
Pros: Spacious foyer, wedding party, wery chatty & charming hotel workman in lift who took time to made us feel most welcome
Cons: Horrible airless room. Needed air conditioning - very hot w/ beds tucked round corner & window opening 4 inches max & air unable to reach beds.
Location: Great location everything walking distance. See Tiled Room cafe by art gallery, Corn Exchange, market, arcade shopping, 'Dry Dock' boat for drinks
Choose this hotel as it has a lovely brick front, looked so attractive, was lovely and central & close to the train station and shops. Unfortunately VERY unlucky w/ room design. Desk to left by wall and bathroom to the right as you entered room, beds tucked behind the desk wall to the left. In winter it might be cosy but in summer it should get a reduction as it's airless and uncomfortable and had no air conditioning. Beds had lovely thick mattresses and nice bedding so I'm sure other rooms are fine. We rushed in, dropped off bags as we were meeting people, and didn't realise till too late prob w/ air circulation or would have tried to swap rooms. I'm sure wedding party would give a totally different review as they had central rooms and were obviously enjoying their stay.

Pros: Clean and efficient
Cons: Can't think of anything
Location: Railway station
I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. I was travelling on business and can't fault this hotel, it was clean and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Very handy for the station too. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Small room, no air conditioning

Posted 06-May-2014
Pros: The breakfast
Cons: The rooms
Location: Location was fine and central however the rooms are poor for an AA 4 star rated hotel. I've stayed in lots of hotels, this is a first for no air con.
The room was grubby, on the top floor and overlooking the internal courtyard. The bathroom had cracked floor tiles, the enamel was peeling from the bath and the sealants around the bath and basin were poorly applied having being smeared on, not a presentable bathroom at all. The room was overly warm from the moment I got in and the sash window would open only 3 - 4 inches. I fully understand the reason for restricting the openings but there was no form of air conditioning. This hotel has no form of air conditioning in any of the bedrooms, I was later informed by hotel staff. You do get a fan though, but not really in keeping with an AA 4 star hotel. You get air con in a Holiday Inn Express! There was a constant humming noise from the services down below from the inner court yard too, but if you closed the window the room was too hot, unless you use the plug in fan. The breakfast was fine, although would have traded that for a pleasant nights sleep. Not a pleasant stay at all - would not go again.

Short break in Leeds

The Met was a very comfortable hotel for a brief stay, with a fantastic city centre location and very friendly staff.

Living in the past....

Posted 11-Apr-2014
Pros: Not a lot, but, it is well positioned for all the city centre activities
Cons: I think that my main comment explains it.......
Location: Good location for city centre activities, close to rail station and shopping centres, and easy to access from motorways
I think that the Met, needs to update itself, move with the times, we booked at short notice, via Expedia, and what was shown on the photo, was nowhere near as good to what we got, but we were there for one night only, thankfully, no double glazing for an hotel in the city centre......rather noisy , late night rubbish collection, people passing, and with a service elevator/lift adjacent to our bed wall, with staff slamming the metal doors, creaky floor, both ours and the floor above.......only 1 packet with 2 biscuits on the tea tray, 2 tea bags, 2 coffee sachets, and 2 milk jiggers, good job that we went out to dinner, and returned late, whatever you do, if you do stay here, make sure that you are not in room 208
