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

Stayed for 3 nights with my family (2 small children) in a quadruple room. The location is excellent just a block off one of the main shopping avenues and walking distance to everything in the city. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly. When our first room was a bit noisy at night (faced the street), we were... More

Great facilities in the centre of the city and excellent service. Breakfast can be stressful because of the relatively small place but quality and visual presentation of the food is great. An agreement with a garage close by makes it possible to reach the hotel by car

9 of us celebrating 20 yrs of friendship, had the pleasure of staying at this bijoux hotel. The reception team helped with restaurants, directions, taxi s and lots more. The breakfast buffet was plentiful with a great variety and again v friendly service. This hotel and its team played a big part in making our trip to this great city... More

We stayed 5 nights in a air conditioned, clean apartment. It is roomy with wifi, comfortably furnished, centrally located and very quiet. There is a washing machine and dryer for guests downstairs (ask for the key at the front desk). The apartment is around the corner from the hotel but you can ask the front desk for help you any...

We spent 3 pleasant nights at this hotel. The location was fantastic for our trip, we had no automobile and walked everywhere. Over the weekends, the main street outside the hotel was shut to automobiles which made it easy to explore the central square. There are plenty of bars and restaurants near the hotel. The front desk was very helpful... More

Dear Guest thanks for your review. At last we change the elevator, after long and honourable service it's terminated, long life at the new elevator, very large and confortable. I'm sorry that you haven't took the breakfast, it's a plus of the Hotel, at the next visit. Best regards. Claudio Salvatore Manager More

Narrow corridors and steps up/down, and probably every room is different. Mine bordered on the alley, making it too noisy to sleep with the window open. This was a pity, because I found the ventilation inadequate: the room got quite stuffy, even though the weather was mild (I turned the heating off). I think the open connection to the bathroom...

The hotel is located in the historical city center, and as many historical buildings, corridors are never too wide and often there are up-and downs levels (there are also rooms with no steps at all, and you guess right, we have 45 rooms and all look different one from the other). In the alley some time there is a little... More

Was not sure of this Hotel when we first look at it, only small, side street and only 3 star, but need not have worried, it is only a short stroll to Via Indipendienza , the main street, and only a 10 minute walk to the famed quadrilatero and main piazza's. The Hotel room we stayed was every equivalent to... More

We stayed for one night after flying into Bologna, continuing on to Florence by train the following morning. The location of the hotel is ideal, within easy walking distance of the station and many good cafes and restaurants. The room was spacious and quiet (it was an internal room, which we liked as it was very peaceful). The bathroom was... More

Really happy with our choice to stay here for 2 nights. Clean room, great price, comfortable bed, helpful front desk staff, and central location between sights and train station. Only downsides were the pillows and some noise outside due to bar/restaurant across the street. Highly recommend to anyone looking for quality hotel that isn't going to cost a lot.
