Location of the hotel was very central being just off the main shopping area but down a side pedestrian street and surprisingly quiet. Room size was good for a city hotel, bed fantastic, great bathroom and nice shower. Staff were extremely pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast choice was great and plentiful. We only spent one night here on a weeks trip...

The hotel is located in a side street closed to traffic off Via Independenza between the train station and Piazza Maggiore. I stayed in a Junior Suite which was off a tranquil courtyard where I could sit outside my room and enjoy a cigarette in the sunshine. The room was spacious, clean and modern. Staff were efficient and helpful. It...

The Metropolitan hotel is perfectly located for visiting the beautiful city of Bologna, its attractions and wonderful restaurants. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly, they really are a credit to the hotel. The rooms are modern and very nicely furnished. If you are planning a trip to Bologna you need look no further.

Nice hotel near Centro Historico and not too far from the train station. There is a bar on the side of the hotel so in the evenings and on weekends it can get rather noisy so just make sure your room doesn't face that side, if that bothers you. The room and the bathroom were decent size according to European...

Tucked away on a small pedestrian avenue off a main city centre road, Hotel Metropolitan is a real charmer - great location, small but elegantly modern without screaming 'chic,' and with such a personable staff. The back room I had looked onto neighbouring courtyards; it was quiet, and the room itself clean, well-appointed and comfortable + tea/coffee facilities and Wi-Fi....

Super modern rooms in the centre of Bologna, the customer service by all staff members from reception to cleaners was excellent. The rooms were spacious and clean and we had an amazing view of the rooftops of Bologna from our private terrace. Would go back in a heartbeat.

About 6 blocks from the train station and in the old section of town, the location was excellent. The room was very modern and large.
