Front desk extremely efficient and helpful. Rooms are adequate. Bathroom updated, great shower. Bed very comfortable. Nice breakfast - a little pricey. Located near shopping, sights and great restaurants.

This is a very highly rated hotel in Bologna and I can see why- the location is excellent. We were in the middle of everything. We stayed for 2 nights and had booked a triple room- the problem was that it was facing the front of the hotel that has a few bars right across the tiny street. We got... More

We are glad that you have appreciated our services, but I regret and I'm really sorry that you not enjoyed the triple standard room.

Perfect location for enjoying the city. The hotel is very nicely decorated (sophisticated yet warm) in both their common areas and the rooms. It is well maintained and every staff member we encountered was professional and extremely pleasant. We were more than pleased with the whole experience and hope to return.

Booked a junior suite (room 602) 15/04/2015. When we arrived at the hotel the suite surpassed our expectations. Only stopped over for a night in Bologna but would have happily stayed here for longer. The staff were really helpful and even spotted a birthday on a passport and marked it by presenting a small cake with a candle at breakfast... More

I chose this hotel for its location and was nt disappointed. But I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful were the staff and how generous and tasty was the buffet breakfast. The room was what you might expect in a 3 star, but very clean and the plumbing was first class! All in all, a great place to... More

A friend and I decided to visit Florence but chose to stay in Bologna so that we could "kill two birds with one stone" and get to know both cities. Bologna is a 30 minute train ride to Florence. Hotel Metroplolitan is in a great location in the heart of the city and is walking distance from the Station, most... More

Months after I did pick up a job in Bologna which required me to be there for meetings every two weeks. As I was very happy with the... More

Right in the centre of Bologna this hotel has bags of character, friendly staff, lovely rooms and great feel. I have stayed in the hotel twice and each time the quality has been superb. My last visit coincided with the Cosmo event and every room in the hotel and every other hotel is booked. The manager offered me one of... More
