A few years ago, the New York Times mentioned the Metropolitan in a "36 Hours in Bologna" article. It referred to the hotel as a 'boutique' hotel. I don't get that. I thought the Metropolitan seemed like a very good, modern business hotel. Before I retired, I would have stayed here (if I had ever been lucky enough to have... More

We had a weekend at this hotel in April, it is centrally located, about a 10 minute walk from the main station, where the airport bus stops, and then less than 10 minutes to the central square, so very convenient for exploring the city. Reception was friendly and helpful, room perfectly OK if a little small, but thats OK for... More

The Metropolitan is a solid three-star hotel in terms of amenities and a five-star operation in terms of service. We spent five nights there and from the moment we walked in to this small boutique property we knew we were going to like it. Service was outstanding. Anita, Sarah and Roberta gave us tips, information, suggestions -- all the things... More

I stayed four nights and only occasionally heard more noise than i would have liked - once when some other guests came in late at night and one morning when i heard more of the breakfast preparation...

We stayed at the Metropolitan for only one night. So sorry we did not stay here longer! It is a lovely boutique hotel in the main area of Bologna within the city center. Great restaurants and shopping near by. The staff was lovely and very helpful. The morning breakfast was tremendous--laid out very pretty and very fresh offerings. Our waitress/staff... More

We chose this hotel for it's location. We contacted the hotel prior to arriving and had them arrange an airport transfer for us as we were arriving after 11.30pm. We were met by a friendly driver and taken straight to the hotel. The hotel is located off the main street Via Indipendenza - which is just a stone's throw away... More

We chose the hotel for its location and were very pleasantly surprised. The ground floor is an oasis of fusion design. The rooms are of more than adequate size and clean with double glazing which cuts out most of any exterior noise. Free wifi is provided. You will need to take your own shampoo and conditioner. The extensive and freshly... More

I stayed at Metropolitan Hotel for 4 days. The hotel is situated in the heart of the city. It is about a 5 minute walk to the statue of Neptune, another 5-10 minute walk to the train and bus station. It is surrounded by boutiques/stores/cafes and restaurants. The airport is about 15 minutes away by taxi. You don't have to... More

Stayed here with 4 friends recently and had an enjoyable stay. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area and were helpful in arranging taxi for a trip from the Ferrari museum to the Lamborghini museum. Central locations - about 15 minute walk from the central station where the airport bus drops you off. Wi-fi available in rooms... More
