We stayed at the Hotel Metropolitan for 5 nights in October 2013. It was our first time in Bologna and the hotel proved to be the perfect base for visiting the historic centre. It is in a side street off Via Independenza and is very easy to find since there is a huge neon sign on the corner. There are two bars a few metres from the front door which are good spots for a drink and people-watching before going out for the evening meal.
The hotel is very bright and fresh, perhaps a little clinical, but the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Our room (210) was a good size and very comfortable and clean. There was plenty of space for our clothes and other bits and pieces. The bathroom was spacious and well equipped. Since it had a window that opened there was never any problem with steam and condensation. Despite the proximity of the two local bars and the main street the room was very quiet and our sleep was never disturbed - the room did not look out on the street.
Breakfast was excellent with a wide selection of cheese, meats, pastries and fruit. The breakfast room was very spacious with plenty of room for everyone.
We would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to stay centrally in Bologna and would certainly stay there again when we return to Bologna which we will have to do since the city has so much to offer the visitor.
