“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Stayed there recently and this had the largest hotel room in my two week trip to Italy. I was in the main building which was well located near the center of Bologna. The room had a double bed, small kitchen facilities and a nice bathroom. Would stay there again.

We were very pleased with this hotel in Bologna. All of the people we spoke to at the front desk were very helpful. Like others on this site, we were offered a studio apartment that was a short walk from the hotel. We accepted the upgrade and really enjoyed it. The studio apartment was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. It also had plenty of space, which is something that is unusual for European hotel rooms. We would stay here again if we are in Bologna.

Spent two nights here. Travelled with a friend and we got a room with double bed. The staff was very helpful and remade the beds and separated them immediately. The bed was also really comfortable. The hotel was clean and modern, located on a quiet street. Very nice and fresh breakfast. Free wifi worked perfectly. Close to city centre. There were some really good restaurants on the next street. This would definitely be my choice again if I go back for a weekend trip to Bologna.

We booked this hotel last minute. We were greeted at reception by a lovely lady
Sarah who was extremely helpful. As it was the holiday period for the locals many of
the restaurants were closed. Sarah recommended a few choices and all were very good.
She also assisted us in getting faxes back to Australia. The room was small but adequate.
Location was fantastic (worth the small room) Close to all the tourist attractions, all walking distance. Would recommend for value for the tariff.

If I was to choose a hotel just based on location, this would be it. Factor in the price, and it is a no brainer.
Then add in the experience from the front desk at check in. We arrived tired and jet lagged, to be greeted by a smiling receptionist. We were staying for 2 nights, and she offered us the double we had booked, or a studio apartment a few minutes walk around the corner, just as close to the main street. We were able to look at both rooms before deciding.
Easy choice for the studio apartment.
If we return to Barcelona, this will definitely be the hotel we stay at.

Small room, we noticed some dirt near our bed, unconfortable pillows. Our room were not beautifully decorated like the rooms on the photos.

The shower is not so powerful, and the shower place is opened so the bathroom floor were always wet, no big problem if there wasn't a stair between the room and the bathroom. The stairs were wet too and became dangerous. The hairdryer were placed on the wall next to the stairs, not very clever. So you have to be on the stairs to dry your hair.

Staff were not so friendly, and one member was almost rude on check-in.

Location is great, only 5 minutes walk from city centre.

We didn't have breakfast.

We stayed at the Metropolitan last May for a quick break in Bologna and we enjoyed it so much we are returning to the hotel again in November. The location is very central to all the sights and there are many great places to eat nearby. The wonderful staff are extremely welcoming and very helpful in recommending places to see, good restaurants, the best gelato nearby, etc. The breakfast is delicious with several tasty choices of pastries, fruit, yogurt, etc. The delightful young waitress learned our preferences quickly and made us delicious cappucino each morning. Our room was very comfortable with nice amenities and had obviously been renovated recently. The bed was very comfortable and housekeeping services were thorough and responsive to any requests. We enjoyed the big windows and views of the neighborhood. We have traveled extensively in Europe and stayed at many fine hotels....the Metropolitan deserves more than its 3star rating due to the outstanding staff, the attention to detail, and the reasonable price. We definitely recommend booking your stay at the Metropoliitan!
