“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

What a grat stay! They upgraded our room to a junior suite for a minimal fee as it was our honeymoon. They even gave us a free bottle of wine. The staff were extremely friendly, especially the man at the reception and Michael, the concierge. The room was very beautiful and spacious, largest room we stayed in on our Italian trip. The water wasnt warm enough, so the shower wasnt great. Tv didnt work, but we didnt phone reception, so they would have fixed it anyway. Breakfast was nice with a lot of options.

Room Tip: Take the upgrade if they give it to you. They give you the option of seeing the other room, and ther...

As others have said, the Metropolitan is centrally located & within easy walking distance of most things - restaurants, bars, museums etc. We stayed for 3 nights in the main hotel in a double room. It was simply furnished and very clean and considering the great location we thought the price was extremely reasonable. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel but there are many cafes nearby for a coffee & pastry. Bologna is a charming city and we enjoyed our stay. By the way, if you are coming from the airport, there is a bus for €6 which takes about 20 minutes and stops across the street from the hotel (on weekdays only). On the weekend the bus stops a few blocks away - maybe a 10 minute walk - not awful but do check with reception for directions. If you purchase a "Bologna Welcome" card for €20 at the info desk at the airport you can get 2 bus tickets to the city plus free admission to almost all the museums for 2 days. Well worth it if you plan to do that sort of sight-seeing.

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.
