We stopped here for 3 nights and booked a Superiour Double through Venere. Firstly let me say that the staff are all great and exceeding helpful and the location is perfect, but that's as far as it goes for this hotel I'm afraid. I have informed Venere that the photographs on there web site and this hotels web site are... More

Lovely modern hotel in the centre of Bologna. Only a 7 minute walk from the station which my husband and I managed well with 4 children & luggage (and rain!). We stayed in June 2015 and were very happy with the wonderful welcome, lovely breakfast and kind service. The breakfast area is a little small so it was tricky maneuvering... More

Very nice hotel in the centre of Bologna. A short walk to Maggiore. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms. Situated on a busy side street, with lots of bars and restaurants around. Try to get a room on the third floor, not facing onto Via Dell' Indipendenza.

Booked Hotel as part of a 3 centre holiday through Citalia who we have used before. This is the first part. Allocated room 110 which is best described as a Box in the centre of the first floor. There is no window as such apart from one which looks directly on to 4 blank walls and what looks like a... More

Dear Guest my personal apologies for the inconvenient during your stay. We accept all the complaint when are true. And my apologies to all the tripadvisor travellers, it's not usual this kind of answer but when the true is misrepresented it's necessary to clarify, it's not an exclusive prerogative of the customers to denigrate the job of the other First:...

We godt one of the apartments in the back yard and it was just wonderful. Huge, cozy, romantic and trendy at the same time. Good breakfast, wonderful staff and the location is just perfect. Right in the middle of the main street. Highly recommanded.

However the friendly receptionist(Barbara) said our room was ready and showed us where on the map we could visit on our stay. Modern room obviously recently refurbished with small balcony was lovely with large bed, kettle and... More

Clean modern style hotel located conveniently in central Bologna. Close to Piazza Maggiore, basilicas, shopping, nice restaurants, central station, and the university. My wife and I stayed at Met Hotel for 4 days in early July 2015 for a Conference, when daytime highs hit 37, 38C in Bologna. Hotel had good AC and nice cozy room to relax in the... More

The historical centre of Bologna can get crowded and quite maddening. Metropolitan hotel puts you right in the middle of where you'd want to be and yet provide you with the quiet and peace you'd want to go home to after a day of sightseeing and visiting everything that Bologna has to offer. Would definitely recommend.

Really great location between central railway station and Piazza Maggiore with shops and restaurants all around. Our room was large with a nice size wardrobe with a safe and a large comfortable bed. Just 1 comfortable chair to sit in and another chair at a glass desk. The bathroom was okay except the shower is really tiny. Modern breakfast room... More
