“Fantastic bed and breakfast in Bologna”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This hotel is a little gem. It has the wow factor as soon as you step in. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The free wi-fi comes in very useful. The breakfast is beautifully laid out and offers a great start to the day. As we were staying there for 7 nights they put us in a room towards the centre of the hotel which meant it was very peaceful as it did not look out onto the busy cafe across the street. The room was very clean and spacious and the complimentary teas and coffees were a lovely surprise. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in this city.

My husband and I have stayed in this hotel fede years ago and we wouldn' stay anywhere else in Bologna. The location is perfect for shopping and going out in Bologna, it's less that 5 minutes walk away from the main square and easily to find from central train station.
The reception staff are very helpful, the rooms are very clean, wifi perfect.
Breakfast super.

The location of this hotel was superb. Just off of the main street in downtown Bologna. Easy to walk to everywhere. The people at the front desk were simply wonderful. They made the stay very nice. A small complaint: wi-fi was not working well at all, to the dismay of my teenage daughter. We used the lobby to access but it was a hassle. We didn't eat here at all. Had a cute room with a separate alcove with a twin for daughter. Our bedroom was a step down and I missed it a couple of times, but luckily didn't fall. Part of the "charm" of older hotels! Would I stay here again? Yes, indeed.

I stay here regularly on business, and it is always a pleasure. The staff are always charming and helpful, it really makes a different to see a friendly, smiley face when you return from business in a foreign city. The rooms are amazing, the suites in particular are just incredible. I always have a great night sleep. The cleanliness of the hotel and the attention to detail is just impeccable. I will always request to stay here whenever I visit on business, and would certainly choose to stay here when travelling to Bologna for pleasure. A great location, surrounded by great shops and a 5 min walk to the main square that has some lovely restaurants nearby. Thank you Hotel Metropolitan!

Excellent location in the heart of the city. Everything is within walking distance. The staff was helpful and courteous. The room was clean and in excellent condition. The breakfast was good with many options-probably more than most. Wifi was a bit slow and cut out from time to time. Otherwise very pleasant stay and would return if back in Bologna.

If you are looking for a hotel with good internet, this is not the hotel for you. The internet is slower then a snail. And when you ask about solutions they don't have a proper way to help you because there English is pritty broken and they don't understand you properly

Dear Guest
My apologies that a technical problem has ruined your stay with us.
Our connection works very well, we are not aware of any black-out nor technical problems in our wi-fi net, all the customers’ devices worked perfectly, it’s really strange if "your " device didn’t work, but sometimes it happens, it’s not always our responsibility, it could be also due to your device settings.
The staff is always at disposal of the customers for all problems and they speak perfect English, at every check-in they give to all guests the written instructions (both in English and Italian) for the wi-fi connection. What our staff cannot do, is to solve the possible technical problem of your device: we can help you in suggesting some technical shop, nothing else, we are not allowed to put our hands into "your" device, this needs particular competences. We hope to have the chance to give you a second opportunity to try our structure and services.

From the friendly, helpful staff to the comfortable room, great location...Would definitely stay again. Breakfast was a good European spread...hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, breads/rolls, meat, cheeses, cereals, juice, coffee/cappuccino...Room and bathroom was cozy but very clean with good amenities. Easy walk to anywhere we wanted to go. We requested and got a quiet room on the top floor-no view but very quiet.

Room Tip: Stayed in quiet room at the back of the hotel-no view but nice and quiet.
