We enjoyed our one night stay here. The hotel is brilliantly positioned for enjoying the heart of this lovely city. The staff were very warm and welcoming, and went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms, although a little on the small side, were bright and airy. Breakfast was really enjoyable. Beware of driving down pedestrianised areas. The... More

I was very pleased with my stay at the hotel. It was in an excellent location with a very inviting entry into the lobby area. The staff at reception were very pleasant and helpful. A recent renovation meant there was a new elevator system and air conditioning in the rooms! Breakfast was available for an extra charge but I chose... More

Years ago we stayed at this hotel in a Suite. It highly impressed me. The rooms are beautifully decorated and A LOT of care is put in to EVERY detail of your stay. This June, we had an early morning flight from Bologna airport, so we decided to stay here again for the night. It still exceeded my expectations. Great... More

We stayed in the Metropolitan for 4 nights in June. The hotel is ideally situated for the centre of Bologna and is only 5 minutes walk from the airport bus stop in Via dei Mille. The hotel is modern and our room, which was located on the second floor at the rear, was very clean, spacious and comfortable with TV,... More

The hotel was easy to find, and check in was speedy and gave us all the information we needed. We were travelling the day after our wedding for our honeymoon and were put in a gorgeous room and reassured that now we were here we could just relax which was wonderful! The hotel staff were fantastic, really really friendly and... More

Great stay in June for 3 nights. Breakfast was incredible. Room decorated in very modern style. Staff helpful. Best value in Bologna: free buffet "aperitivo" at Bar C'entro a few blocks down Indipendenza on the right for the price of one drink.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days during our visit to Bologna. The hotel is perfectly located on the pedestrian street of central, old town Bologna, making it easy to tour the sites. The hotel front desk staff were quite helpful in giving directions and suggestions as to important sites to visit during our stay. The breakfast room and... More

We spent three nights at the Metropolitan Hotel in January 2015. We found the hotel to be in a wonderful location, walking distance to everything, and with the main streets closed for pedestrian access only on weekends, it was a lovely atmosphere. The hotel was also very close to some incredible restaurants... although, all of the food we had in... More

Let's start from the location, which is very central, twenty steps away from the main shopping street leading to Piazza Maggiore. The area is brimming with restaurants and is close enough to most of Bologna's landmarks. It is also max 10-15 minutes walk to the train station. One of our hotel rooms was good-sized while the other one was fairly... More

We booked 4 days, so we were very pleased with the extraordinarily large and luxurious accommodations, and great breakfast. The location provided a wide choice of excellent restaurants within a short walking distance, and a very pleasant walk under colonnades along Via dell'Indipendenza brings you to Piazza Magiore and most major sights. The hotel staff was prompt, courteous and helpful.... More
