We just finished our visit to Italy with 2 days in Bologna. My wife and I were traveling with 2 boys (12 and 15) . We had booked a quad room in the hotel but was upgraded to a Apartment owned by the Metropolitan. This was perfect for a family of 4. It is about a block and a half... More

Hotel Metropolitan is located in the heart of Bologna's old town. Just a few blocks away from Piazza Maggiore and the Torre Asinelli (the largest medieval tower), getting around is easy. The hotel is nicely appointed, the rooms are spacious (by European standards) and the staff is friendly and helpful. Very good value for your money.

Location: Fabulous! Easily walk to the train station and super close to all the major sites. Room: Aside from the teeny tiny size of our room, I think we may have had the worst room in the hotel. It’s a real problem when you can’t have the window open and open the door to the bathroom at the same time... More

Very good at recommending great Trattoria's near the hotel. Beds are very comfortable and rooms warm and cosy. Nice bathrooms . It is very Central for shops and restaurants and I would definitely...

This hotel was a stones throw from the main shopping street and a stroll to the other sights. The check in staff were warm and welcoming. They were engaging and forthcoming with information about the local area. We were shown to our room by a young lady, using the cool elevator, she went through how things worked and showed us...

We recently returned to the Metropolitan Hotel for our third stay and we were just as pleased as before. The staff at the hotel are very welcoming and helpful, so it feels like we are visiting old friends each time we return. We loved the peaceful courtyard of the olives where our suite was located. One morning we had an... More

Dear Debbie G, will always be a pleasure for us to host you in our hotel, as it was in previous times. I'm glad you like our "Corte degli Ulivi", certainly an area of our hotel we love too. For an affectionate guest as you, anticipate the opening time of the breakfast room is never a problem, and knowing that... More

Great location, excellent service, reasonable price...terrible wifi (just pretending, as far as I could tell), mediocre room: small, dated, no view. TV had BBC & Sky News, but no CNN (many other channels too). Bathroom worked, had shower (no tub). Elevator helpful, but still a few steps to our room. Stylish lobby, front desk guy very helpful and nice, directions,... More

I am fortunate enough to keep travelling for business and private reasons to Bologna and have been to probably 15+ hotels there. Metropolitan stands out in some ways: firstly, I perceive there is some type of friendly service there that goes beyond the purely professional attitude often found in the hospitality industry. Secondly, by design of the hotel and its... More
