Stayed for 2 nights in March. The hotel is very reasonably priced and is in a fantastic location - 10 mins walk from train station and around 5 to the main square. The hotel was undergoing some renovation work which we weren't made aware of when we booked and we did experience some noise but this was only through the...

Just returned from a 3 night stay in this boutique style hotel which was everything and more that we hoped for! We would not usually book a 3 star hotel, but with our dates being during a run up to a major exhibition all hotel prices were high. The hotel oofers a lot for a 3 star. It is extremely...

Dear Giallian P, thank you for taking the time for sharing your experience with the other travellers.

We have stayed in Bologna a number of times and this was our first stay at the Metropolitan Hotel. Although we always like to try new places, it will be hard to resist returning to this hotel as it was our favourite so far. The location is pretty perfect, only a 5 to 10 minute walk from the main square...

Very nice architecture! Excellent breakfast. Perfect Service. Although its located in the Centre, its very quite. We were in the Business Suite, on the roof of the hotel - marvellous - beautiful view from the roof. we loved it. Our baby with 13 month was really happy - Italians are very nice and lovely to childrens. We'll come back!

Spent an enjoyable three nights here, hotel in great location to explore the city from. Extremely friendly, helpful staff and our room was clean and comfortable.The breakfast looked amazing - but rather over the top so we preferred to go out - there are several good places to pick from very close by. The problem was that there were clearly...

We looked after something simple in Bologna because we´d spend only one night there. This hotel is very well located, what alows you to go to the old city by foot. It´s a short walk to the city centre. It´s being renovated and it is gaining a trendy/modern/cool boutique vibe. Our room was fairly good but we were sad there:...
