I knew this was the budget hotel of our trip, so I was a little nervous about the quality. I was pleasantly surprised when we entered the hotel because the lobby area was cute and looked recently renovated. The rooftop bar was also very nice - we enjoyed a bottle of wine and aperitivo whilst watching the sunset. Unfortunately the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 January 2017 via mobile

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.

Our second time at the Metropolitan Hotel - this time with our little 18 month old. This is probably the best hotel in Bologna - impossibly well located, clean, quiet, modern and extremely luxurious for its 3 star rating. We stayed in the apartments, so that we could have a separate room for 'the princess'. Round the corner from the...

Great location, very friendly & helpful staff. We stayed in the rooms off the olive courtyard with seats & sun-loungers, this & the roof top bar made an oasis in the centre of Bologna. The hotel is rated as 3 star but has the feel & service of at least a 4 star. I am returning to Bologna in June...

This hotel is a study in inconsistency. The LOCATION is 4 stars. The hotel is located close to the historic centre of Bologna, not too far from the main train station (although a bit far to walk if you have a lot of luggage). The ROOM was 1 star. A terribly small room (room 211), which felt cramped and very...

Beautiful location, central and accessible to bologna city center within minutes. Clean rooms and very friendly staff. Unfortunately extremely noisy within the hotel and outside, our room overlooked the street. Noise insulation is not so good, door banging, vacuum noises from very early on in the morning.

This hotel is lovely. We stayed for 7 nights and will return. Clean, modern lines and decor, tempered with a little of ancient Italy. Our room was spacious (402) for two. The bathroom clean and functional. Adequate storage for luggage and things. Very comfortable mattress and fine bed linens. A delicious, generous, and beautiful-to/ the-eye breakfast buffet.
