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.

This hotel met all of our key criteria: clean, good wifi, well-located to the city center and train station, and helpful staff. The only drawback was the fact that the rooms are not terribly well soundproofed and sounds from the hallway are quite apparent. Luckily, it was quiet at night and we're not late sleepers. Roberto at reception was very... More

I just returned from a seven night stay at this hotel. I was visiting my daughter who is in a study abroad program at the University of Bologna. In general I would rate this hotel favorably.

Stayed at the Metropolitan hotel in October, staying for 3 nights. We found the hotel very easily, and the location is great, right in the heart of Bologna. On arrival we were greeted with friendly, welcoming smiles. We were early due to an early morning flight but the reception staff were helpful and accommodating, storing our bags till our room...
