The hotel is terrific. If we come back to bologna we would stay here again. It was very clean, the beds are soft unlike the rest of Italy! The room is spacious. The bathroom is nice and has a good heater in it. The staff are very friendly and made great restaurant recommendations for us.

This hotel is perfectly situated for seeing the old city. Its tucked away so nice and quite but just a few minuets walk to everything you need. The staff are all very helpful and the breakfast was extensive. Our room..404..had a small terrace..was modern, comfortable and well equipped. One small criticism...only one glass in the mini bar, but no big...

We stayed here for three nights over a weekend in February. The hotel is perfectly placed, right in the middle of the action, and yet is nice and quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Stayed for four nights with our teenage son during February half term. The location of this hotel could not be better, right in the centre but in a tiny little side street so not troubled by any noise. The hotel is contemporary in style, simple but stylish rooms and friendly staff. Our triple room was a little on the small...

Bologna is a great place for a long weekend, and The Metropol was perfectly situated , very central yet tucked away down a quiet side street .The views from the rooftop bar are nice for a quick drink but limited and the service was slow ( the only negative ) .

The hotel was very friendly, clean and in a great location. It's on a side street so quiet as well. We were only there one night and had to catch a plane early so can't comment on their breakfast. Would highly recommend.
