My wife and stayed for 3 nights and it was great. Perfectly located to lazily explore Bologna, eat, drink, shop and soak it all in. The lobby is smart and the room was clean, well laid out and air conditioned. Wifi was a welcome bonus. The staff were very attentive, greeting you with a smile and engaging in casual conversation....

My family of three stayed at Metropolitan Hotel on 5 July 2013. It was ideally located on a side alley near the main street about 10 mins from the train station. We were met by a wonderfully cheerful man and check in was fast. He was also able to give good recommendations for dinner. The triple room was beautiful and...

Centrally located (walked 10 minutes from the train station), situation on a quiet alley a block away from the main street, friendly and fast check-in, free wifi connection (w/o interruptions), cable, fridge, modern and clean decor, AC - it was lovely. We didn't have breakfast...

These apartments are perfectly sited in Via Monari, just off Indipendenza, next door to the 1200 seat theatre where Hugh Laurie is soon to gig. Roomy enough and light, with large modern shower and big wide comfortable bed. Cool enough in warm 30 degree weather for us never to use the AC. Kitchen under used by us. As has been...

Hotel is in the heart of Bologna. Parking is available but a few blocks away which could be a drag with luggage. Once you park though you can walk to everything. Staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. Excellent breakfast. Rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. Bathrooms are spacious and clean. Only gripe is that floor is dusty. Housekeeping could use...

This hotel offers clean air-conditioned rooms, a comfortable bed, a helpful staff, and a good location. Having said that, be aware that the "mod" boutique hotel interior does not extend beyond the very small lobby. Bathrooms are tiny (to the point that I didn't even attempt to use the shower). Rooms are plain. Each room has a booklet for Sky...

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.
