We we're going to the opera and didn't know where to find a good restaurant still serving dinner at 10:30pm. When we checked in we asked the man at the front desk for some recommendations of where we could eat near the opera house after the performance. A few minutes later we had a personalized map with the names and... More

We arrived at noon and received the room in an hour. Reception staff was very helpfull. Our double room was clean and spacious. Hot water temperature was not hot at all which lowerd our scoring. Interesting and delicious breakfast, Boiled egg was too boiled. But all other ingredients were nice and tasty.

The Metropolitan Hotel was recommended to us by a friend. I traveled there with my then 10-year-old daughter to experience the city and its food. We took the train from Florence to Bologna and walked from the train station, which took about 15 minutes. As soon as we entered, the lady at the front desk was so very welcoming and... More

Elegant, central Bologna hotel. A seven euro taxi ride from the train station. Very elegant and modern. Desk staff always friendly. Rooms were very lovely with black, white and glass furnishings. Both of our rooms had a terrace. The bath was very well thought out with large shower, pretty fixtures and tiles. Big screen TV with Skye. Breakfast had many... More

Wonderful stay! We had one quad room booked with (2) adults and (2) teenagers - they gave us an adjoining room at NO cost for us to be more comfortable! So appreciated! Roberto (front desk) gave great dining suggestions and was friendly and helpful! Highly recommend!

I travel to Bologna once a year for work. 2015 was the first time I had stayed at the Metropolitan, but it will not be my last. The staff was professional and lovely. The rooms were clean and quiet. We actually had a rooftop patio outside our room! The location was ideal, the breakfast was nice, and the wifi actually... More

The location was perfect - everything else was also very competent. It was a good three star city centre hotel that I would happily return to.The hotel was very clean and breakfast was continental and absolutely fine. I stayed in a single room, so can't really say what the doubles are like. I liked the Metropolitan much better than one... More

This is a great hotel if you want to spend your time in central Bologna, close to all the amenities, landmarks and restaurants. It is very clean and comfortable and is situated just off Via D'Independenzia, a great shopping street. There are many restaurants in the area. Also in the same little side street are cafe's and bars. We will... More

The room was very clean and comfortable. It was a little on the smaller side, but the size was fine for me since I was traveling alone. It was also pretty quiet despite being only two levels above the busy street below. The breakfast buffet was big and had a lot of options. The staff is also friendly, and the... More

I was really confused when I read the last review, very critic, also because I had already booked the same room, a single economy. when I arrived at the hotel I didn't want to change rooms, just to see the room I had booked! The room was small, certainly, but my expectations were these, Mine had a traditional single bed,... More
