Easy to find. Quick, easy and friendly check in. Room was very clean and surprising spacious. Well appointed amenities. Location is perfect; within walking distance to everything. There is a nice place for reasonable food a half block away for a quick bite. Overall, a very pleasant and restful stay. I recommend this hotel and would stay again. Cheers.

The Metropolitan Hotel is well situated midway between the railway station and the town center. The room was large with an enormous comfortable bed and efficient air conditioning and good sound insulation from the busy cafe in the alley outside. Everything about the hotel is artistically presented including the excellent buffet breakfast. I have not given it five stars because... More

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 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
