Booking.com gave the address as Piazza Maggiore, which is completely incorrect. It took us a long time to find Via dell'Orso which is off Via dell'Indipendenza, near Restaurant Diana. We complained on arrival that we had been driving and walking around for some time (instructions would have been good) and were told that most customers arrive from the airport by...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night to see Bologna. The location is great. We dropped our hire car at the airport and caught a taxi and it was €12.

The hotel is in a great location near all the sights and within easy walk of many restaurants.

We stayed at the Met's apartments which are located a short distance from the Hotel. We stayed all up 4 days. My wife and daughter were visiting another daughter studying in Bologna and an apartment was a much better solution than a hotel room. The apartment was central yet quiet. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The apartment...

One of the best hotels in bologna, centrally located, very clean and modern. Breakfast was simply great. Staff very helpful and cordial. Our stay was absolutely fantastic, thanks to always very helpful staff. Deserves the 5 stars completely :) I would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to see the city on foot without any hassles.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel and it is a joy to do so, this time we were in the Olive garden, what a great room and so big, Italy offers small rooms but this is a great place to stay and its in the center of every thing. I will be back. DG

We would mirror the other recent reviews. Our room was not one that had the full upgrade treatment but clean and as we were at the back of the hotel very quiet.

Dear friend thanks for your opinion about Hotel Metropolitan and the recomandation.
