Stayed at the Metropolitan hotel in October, staying for 3 nights. We found the hotel very easily, and the location is great, right in the heart of Bologna. On arrival we were greeted with friendly, welcoming smiles. We were early due to an early morning flight but the reception staff were helpful and accommodating, storing our bags till our room...

Metropolitan Hotel is a little boutique hotel newly renovated. We stayed in a double room for 2 nights. Room is relatively small but pretty functional. The double bed is very large like king size. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We need to join Italian Days Food Tour in very early morning, and they allowed us to have breakfast earlier... More

The bellman at the hotel was good locating wine glasses and and opener in addition to carrying our heavy bags. The man at the reception led us to the... More

I had chosen this hotel for it's location and from reviews I had read and was not disappointed. It is on a side street off the main piazza with a couple of bars opposite. A ten minute walk away is the Duomo and the main square when you can board the sightseeing bus. The train station is about 15 mins... More

My wife and I spent one night in Bologna on our way to Milan. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be worth the effort to make the stop but I was wrong. The hotel is in a very central, easy-to-find location off the main road that goes from the central train station to the main piazza in Bologna.... More

Great staff: Anita and Sara were very accommodating, helpful and uber- efficient. Great buffet breakfast. Comfortable and clean rooms sheets bathrooms - wood laminate floors not carpets, crisp bed linens, clean modern bathroom, though shower was tighter than on a boat. Note: lobby does not look like the rooms. Location could be better - not so central as it's about... More

First of all I must admit that all the staff at the reception is very polite and helpful! The location is perfect for Bologna, it's closed to everything you need in this city, shopping, culture, university, restaurant, etc. When you enter you see they have tried hard to make it look like a modern/design/boutique hotel, and in some way they...
