If in Bologna, stay at Metropolitan! Very nice, helpful staff, impeccable room, great location, what else would you wish for? The restaurant nearby we were recommended for lunch was also a very good choice.

This is a very nice, somewhat trendy, hotel with a great location. We stayed for four nights in a Junior Suite in the Olive Garden and it was very peaceful. Room was lovely and it was great to have our own private, outdoor, seating area. Loved the breakfasts! Staff goes out of their way to accommodate.

Room Tip: If it fits your budget, reserve Jr. Suite in Olive Garden.

The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful with a very good command of English (we don't have Italian). Hotel location is excellent - a 5 minute walk from the central square and a 10 minute walk straight down from the station. There is actually an Aerobus stop right outside the alley that the hotel is on if you are coming by bus from the airport. At the weekend the central city is off-limits to cars (including the street outside the hotel) which makes for a nice atmosphere. The double room was quiet and reasonably sized. The TV had BBC World News as well as many other domestic channels. There were tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The reception area was smart and public areas in general were clean and well maintained. I would recommend this hotel.

Having spent several days in the Metropolitan I have no hesitation in recommending it. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly & accommodating, & they provide a breakfast to set you up for the day. One personal accolade for Sara on reception who was fantastic - her restaurant recommendations were excellent & nothing was too much trouble for her :-)

To my surprise, this hotel is a charm!! The lobby is very inviting and the staff is super friendly! The hotel is modern and very cool!! Check in was done in a matter of minutes and the hotel staff helped us to get our luggage to our room. The room is just sweet. The view from our room is beautiful. Love those big windows. Very clean room.

This hotel is in the center of Bologna. 15 mins walk to the train station. 10 minutes walk to Piazza Maggiore. Very convenient!! Hotel staff is very helpful. We asked for recommendations to local eateries and we got great suggestions every night!! When asked for day trip to Venice, the hotel staff offered to print out train schedule and make train ticket arrangement. Very cool.

Will definitely stay at Metropolitan Hotel in my next trip to Bologna.

Friendly hotel with great staff who really know their city. Nothing was too much trouble. Good choice at breakfast. Don't hesitate to ask for restaurant recommendations. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and a great city centre location. Rooms spacious for a city like Bologna. Tremendous value for money.

Room Tip: All rooms are good - those overlooking the internal courtyard are quiet, but can be a little dark, w...

The hotel itself is very clean and modern. I loved having wifi and working ac in the room. The staff was great and very helpful whenever we asked for restaurant recommendations or directions. The hotel is in a great location. They have a couple of bars right next door, and it is a short walk to the major attractions of Bologna. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
