Location means everything to me when I'm choosing a place to stay.
Bologna makes no exception, even if I'm very familiar with this city.
Metropolitan was definitely a good choice for my short stay (just one night!) in town. The main road (Via Indipendenza) is just around the corner. That means that everything (from the train stations to the main attractions of the city) is walking distance.
As someone else already said, the entrance of the hotel is really nice, modern and elegant.
I had booked a standard room but at the check-in we were offered an upgrade to a suite for something like 40 Euros. We declined the offer as it was already late and we had to leave early on the next morning to catch our flight, so we didn't feel like to spend the extra money for just some hours of sleeping.
Anyway, our room was a basic one, and looking at the pics on the web, completely different from the suites. It was ok though, there's everything you need to feel comfortable (clean, comfy bed, TV with a lot of channels, etc..) maybe I was just expecting something more "design". It fitted us perfectly as we got a very good rate and our stay was meant to be very short, but be aware of that when you book your room here.. if you want something nicer just pay the extra and go for their suites.
Staff is really nice and helpful, with good advices for visitors. Free WiFi is available, and breakfast is brilliant. Lots of fresh fruit, pastries, juices, cheese and more.. plenty of choice, loved it.
Would I come back to Metropolitan? Probably yes, if only I could find the suite at a good price.
