Went back to Bologna last week, for business and pleasure. A warm welcome at Metropolitan Hotel from Claudio and Anna made me forget the rain outside the door. Stayed in one of the rooms at "Corte degli Ulivi", the Olive's Court. The calm, friendly and professional atmosphere of this design hotel in the middle of the historical center of Bologna... More

Rooms large by Italian standards, comfortable beds and pillows, clean and efficient en suite, a wide and fresh selection at breakfast was excellent but our stay was made the success it was by the friendly and helpful reception staff, who directed us to the best places to eat and visit. One star lost due to the noisy cafe next door... More

First time staying Bologna - and this hotel was in the perfect location. Very central so you are within walking distance of major sites in the city. Also, the hotel has a deal with a parking garage just one block away. It was very convenient no having to search for parking at night when coming back from a day of... More

It was my first visit to Bologna and Hotel Metropolitan. It was chosen because of TripAdvisor reviews and location. We travelled to Verona and Venice so it was really very easy to walk to the train station. I would like to say that I had perfect communication with the hotel prior my arrival, they were all so friendly and helpful... More

We booked this hotel for a short break after reading the reviews of other travellers. It was as good as reported. Close to the main square, restaurants and attractions and the service excellent. The breakfast was very good, varied and full of freshly prepared fruit snacks and pastries with a freshly brewed coffee to taste on request. The room was... More

Good, centrally located hotel. Nothing too fancy, but the beds sleep well, clean bathrooms and rooms. Minibar, few/close to none English TV channels. Had a room at the front, some people might find the street noise too much. Breakfast was very busy, some people had to wait 15 minutes+ before being seated. Enough choices for breakfast. Would come back here... More

This was me and my husband's third trip to Italy, so we've stayed at a number of hotels over the years (11-12+) and know in general expectation wise what to expect in Europe/Italy vs. U.S. hotels. Pros: Amazing location Nice and clean Good layout - we even had a extra sink / small "wet bar" area in our room Cons... More

Dear Superbonb, thank you for sharing your opinion with other travelers. I am sorry that you have not enjoyed the quality of sleep for the door slamming, probably a lock was broken and we did not realize it immediately, and I'll worry about the waiter to report your complaint to improve our service. As for the club music, something must... More

Stayed at this hotel during our first visit to Bologna, the location is really good and really close to the main attractions of the city, you couldn't wish for a better base. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff were incredibly helpful. The room we had was very basic but as I said, very clean. Free wifi was on... More

Stayed one night for business. Very convenient (although the taxi couldn't drive to the entrance) in the middle of the centre, walking distance everywhere. Nicely renovated but in a fairly basic way. Quiet room facing a back alley, ok bed, big bathroom, good wifi. Didn't try the breakfast. Nice little patio of the first floor. Everything I needed for one... More

The hotel is perfectly situated- a quick walk from the main square, cathedral, and on a quite side street, across from a nice little bar that's perfect for grabbing an afternoon aperitivo. My husband and I were vacationing with my parents and stayed at the Metropolitan for two nights. There was some construction going on, which started up around 8am.... More
