“Excellent city centre hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

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 was ready. Our room was modern, clean and functional. There was no wardrobe or drawers but there was adequate hanging space for clothes. The beds were comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities we welcome but perhaps they could be a little more generous in supplying tea!! Continental breakfast was extra but nicely presented with plenty of choice, albeit a little expensive.
The room can be noisy at night, but this is Italy and you can expect noise!! Overall we had a great stay, Bologna is a wonderful city and the hotel suited our needs perfectly. Would I return to the city, definately, would I return to the hotel, definately!!

Wow... what stab in the back!!
My apologies, you have all the reasons for the complaint, moreover already done when you called for show us the bathroom not perfectly cleaned (just for clarify, and it's true..., was a little sign in the wall of the shower) We done immediately the new cleaning of all the room, including bathroom and I suppose with your satisfaction, as you told to the reception... (sometimes, very rarely.... the chambermaid can make an error and we hope that the customers can understand that during the work can happen...) the important thing is that we arrived and cleaned immediately. About the value it's your personal consideration and I can't comment, I just know that you paid the best available rate for a standard room (during the low season...very economic price) and your stay was in a superior, probably you don't understood our free upgrade... another stab in the back...!
My best regards

Metropolitan Hotel is a little boutique hotel newly renovated. We stayed in a double room for 2 nights. Room is relatively small but pretty functional. The double bed is very large like king size.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. We need to join Italian Days Food Tour in very early morning, and they allowed us to have breakfast earlier than opening times. Many thanks for the flexibility.

This is a modern hotel with an excellent location just off the main street in Bologna. The reception was friendly and very helpful..especially in getting our wifi established on our phones. The bellman at the hotel was good locating wine glasses and and opener in addition to carrying our heavy bags. The man at the reception led us to the garage with our car and got us on our way.
The only tips that I would give is to have the hotel give those that will be driving a list of nearby parking garages. You cannot drive up to the hotel so you will need help. Driving in Bologna is challenging.
Overall this is a good choice for those coming to Bologna; the location is perfect; rooms and bathrooms are large and modern. Grade B

Room Tip: Select a room away from the street; very noisy at night.

Dear Guest
thanks for your positive review you posted on Tripadvisor and for your suggestions, we will take in consideration,
Driving in Bologna it's not challenging if you follow the itinerary suggested, the Hotel Metropolitan is located in one of the best preserved historic centers in Europe, in order to preserve this heritage, access to the car in the center of Bologna is forbidden to vehicles not authorized, but do not worry, you can drive yourself directly till the hotel door where we will help for the luggages and show you where the garages are.
All the customers can see the exactly itinerary for an easily arrival to hotel in our web site and in all the confirmations sent it's wrote where they can park, in 2 garages very very near the hotel.
About the noise in the street, 2 bars below the hotel working till the 11.00 p.m. no later, contributing to the true life of the center, you can take a good cup of wine or an aperitiv before diner with the traditional bolognese citizens.
All the windows are double, in the rooms face on the street there is any noise after the 11.00 pm.
My best regards
Claudio Salvatore

I had chosen this hotel for it's location and from reviews I had read and was not disappointed. It is on a side street off the main piazza with a couple of bars opposite. A ten minute walk away is the Duomo and the main square when you can board the sightseeing bus. The train station is about 15 mins on foot. The staff were very friendly and offered to give us recommendations on where to eat, there are just so many places to choose from.
We had a mini suite which was at the back of the hotel with a great shower area. The room also had tea and coffee making facilities which was a bonus.
Would choose this hotel if I was to return to Bologna and recommend to others.
Bologna is a fabulous place to visit and much bigger than I thought it would be.

Bologna is beautifull!!! Very nice hotel!!! Me and my husband stayed here for 2 nights. The location is excellent, the street were the hotel is located is full of life and coffee shops. Very close to the Duomo and beautiful streets with arcades. Enjoy our stay a lot. The room was not big but quiet and very nice, the bathrom was also very good, and always all was "very clean". Breakfast was also very good with fruit, yogurts, cheese, jam, coffee, and many more. Very friendly staff and try to help at all times. I highly recommend this hotel. Tip: we were in room 311, which was very quiet, and had a very nice view. Definitely will come again, as had a very happy stay!!!

My wife and I spent one night in Bologna on our way to Milan. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be worth the effort to make the stop but I was wrong. The hotel is in a very central, easy-to-find location off the main road that goes from the central train station to the main piazza in Bologna. Being so central, it is an easy walk to many of the eating establishments that make Bologna such a thrill to visit.

The hotel was very clean, comfortable and elegant and made me very happy that I had come to Bologna.

The breakfast in the hotel was very nice as were the staff at the front desk.
