Right in the centre of Bologna this hotel has bags of character, friendly staff, lovely rooms and great feel. I have stayed in the hotel twice and each time the quality has been superb. My last visit coincided with the Cosmo event and every room in the hotel and every other hotel is booked. The manager offered me one of... More

We just finished our visit to Italy with 2 days in Bologna. My wife and I were traveling with 2 boys (12 and 15) . We had booked a quad room in the hotel but was upgraded to a Apartment owned by the Metropolitan. This was perfect for a family of 4. It is about a block and a half... More

Hotel Metropolitan is located in the heart of Bologna's old town. Just a few blocks away from Piazza Maggiore and the Torre Asinelli (the largest medieval tower), getting around is easy. The hotel is nicely appointed, the rooms are spacious (by European standards) and the staff is friendly and helpful. Very good value for your money.

Location: Fabulous! Easily walk to the train station and super close to all the major sites. Room: Aside from the teeny tiny size of our room, I think we may have had the worst room in the hotel. It’s a real problem when you can’t have the window open and open the door to the bathroom at the same time... More

This hotel was a stones throw from the main shopping street and a stroll to the other sights. The check in staff were warm and welcoming. They were engaging and forthcoming with information about the local area. We were shown to our room by a young lady, using the cool elevator, she went through how things worked and showed us...

We recently returned to the Metropolitan Hotel for our third stay and we were just as pleased as before. The staff at the hotel are very welcoming and helpful, so it feels like we are visiting old friends each time we return. We loved the peaceful courtyard of the olives where our suite was located.
