"Rude, threatening, and unprofessional management"
After departing the hotel I received a call from hotel reception that there was a very small amount outstanding on my account for one local phone call and a tourism tax from the city of Bologna. I let them know I was on a train and would pay the charge by credit card when I arrived at my destination. No problem, right? Wrong. I arrived at my destination […] to find an email from hotel management stating that they would be reporting me to the police if I did not immediately pay the tax. Strangely, they also attached an official document from the city of Bologna explaining that this tax was entirely voluntary. Despite hotel management's bizarre and aggressive behavior, I provided them with a credit card to cover the charges. After I left a negative review of the hotel online the following day, the Hospitality Manager of the hotel sent me an offensive email containing insults and untruths. Aside from the unprofessional management, the hotel offers rooms that are dark and pint-sized. A bar on the street outside makes sleep at night nearly impossible. All in all, this was one of the worst hotel experiences of my lifetime. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent location and service"
Made to feel welcome from arrival, our bags were looked after whilst we toured the town. All receptionists spoke excellent english and always greeted us with a cheerful smile. Breakfast was unexpectedly varied and of high quality. Room was clean although if the room looks out on to the side street it can be noisy from the bistrot below. All major sites […] in the town were within easy walking distance and hotel able to recommend first rate tratorrias and restaurants for eating, recommend to all friends and would stay again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First room wasnt very nice, suite was a lot nicer"
So we had a double room, first room we were given really wasnt very nice, cramped and very dated, also it had a hob cooking area in it which was strange, walking past other rooms that looked to be the same type (standard double) they looked a lot nicer so I think we just got the worst room there. So I upgraded us to a suite which was really nice inside, […] only annoyance was a family above were noisy and I think the room/house/apartment above didnt have carpet. So my main reason for 3 stars rather than 4 is that the first room was just a huge let down. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Staff, Ideal Location!"
The staff of this hotel were among the most helpful we experienced throughout Italy! Immediately at check-in, they were helpful with city directions, recommending AMAZING authentic Italian restaurants, and calling around for us to compare prices of car service companies for a tour the next day. They even remembered who we were and would ask us about […] our tours. The staff make this a great hotel! The hotel location is ideal to boutique shopping centres and stores, restaurants, and walking to the train station. The only issues we had were with the incredibly small size of the elevator and there was a lot of noise, from the street and from the next room. There is a bar with street tables outside the hotel, so you can expect bottles shattering and laughing until about 3am if you leave the window open a crack. The hotel should invest in doors that shut a little quieter for neighbouring guests. This constantly woke us up. Otherwise, good shower head pressure, clean and safe hotel, awesome breakfast buffet. Would definitely stay here again, but maybe ask for a room on the top floor, away from noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Staff/Close to Must see Sights"
Not only were we in walking distance to the majority of the must see sights but with only a few days stay and so much to see the staff steered us in the right direction. They were also very friendly and extremely knowledgable regarding dining options. Very clean and well situated hotel. Great value for the price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the heart of Bologna"
We stayed at the Hotel Metropolitan for 5 nights in October 2013. It was our first time in Bologna and the hotel proved to be the perfect base for visiting the historic centre. It is in a side street off Via Independenza and is very easy to find since there is a huge neon sign on the corner. There are two bars a few metres from the front door which […] are good spots for a drink and people-watching before going out for the evening meal. The hotel is very bright and fresh, perhaps a little clinical, but the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Our room (210) was a good size and very comfortable and clean. There was plenty of space for our clothes and other bits and pieces. The bathroom was spacious and well equipped. Since it had a window that opened there was never any problem with steam and condensation. Despite the proximity of the two local bars and the main street the room was very quiet and our sleep was never disturbed - the room did not look out on the street. Breakfast was excellent with a wide selection of cheese, meats, pastries and fruit. The breakfast room was very spacious with plenty of room for everyone. We would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to stay centrally in Bologna and would certainly stay there again when we return to Bologna which we will have to do since the city has so much to offer the visitor.

"Fabulous all round accommodation!"
We enjoyed it so much, we will be returning at some stage in the future! Bologna city is a must see with culture, fabulous buildings/architecture and GREAT shopping! Not to mention the delicious food... too many good Trattorias, bars and restaurants to list so check them out yourselves.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hidden Gem in Bologna"
Tucked down a side street, the Metropolitan is easy to miss and don't be put off by the "alternative" name on the front door - you are in the right place. It's a 10 minute walk from the train station with a bar and a cafe directly opposite, and easy walks to the sites of the city. We booked a double room which was large and comfortable, with windows […] opening out to the side street, and great wifi. The lovely staff spoke excellent english and where extremely helpful when I lost my credit card. Only problem was the failed shower which merely dribbled water from the showerhead, but reception seemed genuinely concerned by our complaint. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for romantic getaway"
It was a suprise trip for my Husband, the hotel staff were excellent, even before we arrived, there was nothing too little they could do to help. Hotel was modern, clean and very friendly. Price was very good for the standard of hotel, I would definately return if I came back to Bologna.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and very helpful staff"
The hotel is in a great location, close to excellent restaurants and historic sights. It's in a quiet street so street noise is not an issue. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and speak great English! Next time I'll book a garden apartment as the Olive Grove garden is wonderful...a peaceful oasis.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in excellent location"
I am so glad we picked this hotel. The location is excellent - just off the main street, and in the area that traffic is banned over the weekend. Lots of restaurants just round the corner and a short stroll from Piazza Maggiore. The bus from the airport stops at the end of the road so it couldn't get much easier (you get back on the bus at the same […] stop that you get off, not of a weekend though). Great staff, really good breakfast, and large comfortable room. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bologna. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Really friendly helpful lady on reception when I checked in with dark curly hair...explained everything clearly. Modern, clean room and huge bathroom, with tea/coffee facilities. Central location close to train station and main piazza. Good breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect central location, 8 mins from station, 5 from piazza maggiore, excellent room in Olives' Court, good air-con, needed as 38 degrees outside. Definitely recommend, and Bologna is worth visiting, great location for day trips to pretty much anywhere, and great food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern and centrally located hotel"
What I like best about the hotel was the sumptuous breakfast buffet served in room with lit candles on the floor and Cafe del Mar-style music playing in the background. Wifi was free and quite reliable. The hotel is located in a quite alley opening onto Bologna's thoroughfare and is not far from the Duomo and other historic sites.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good location but not boutique"
Lovely and helpful staff and good central location. However not the quality of a boutique hotel that I was expecting. However overall a good stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for city breaks"
I picked this hotel from other trip advisor comments and I wasn't disappointed! The hotel is tucked in a little street off the main drag and is reached by the airport bus which leaves you off nearly at its door for the price of 6euros...the train station is a ten minute walk away...the modern hotel is small,clean ,welcoming,rooms are very clean with […] modern bathrooms and free wifi..and air conditioning! Everything is nearby..restaurants, shopping,university,ancient sites and all within walking distance..no need for taxis. Breakfasts are superb..simple,fresh fruits,pastries etc all served by friendly staff, ,,and most important this hotel is not expensive..I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

"Great all-round, value for money hotel."
Like all hotels, quality goes hand in hand with price. For the very affordable price you pay you will get a tidy, clean, well-run hotel right in the heart of Bologna. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size although lack closet/drawer space, but otherwise very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"All round excellence"
Had a great stay at the Metropolitan hotel in June. Staff from check in we're efficient,friendly and informative. The location was superb as it was within walking distance of the main tourist sites and easily reached from the station. Breakfast was fresh, had good variety and plentiful. The room was immaculate and well stocked.. We were very happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My friend and I returned to Bologna to spend a long weekend where we were students 20 years earlier. We explained this to the manager in enthusiastic Italian who welcomed us home! This charm extended to the rooms, decor and breakfast. The location is perfect for a stroll around the centre within a stones throw of several bars, ice cream parlours and […] the local market. Drinking a real coffee with my feet clad in new sandals it really did feel like home. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, good location."
The hotel is very well situated, off the main road and almost directly opposite the Aerobus stop for visitors arriving from the airport, but within 5 minutes walk of the Piazza Maggiore and a similar walking distance to a good variety of restaurants and shops. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, the room fine with quite a firm bed and also had […] tea/coffee making facilities (not listed in amenities but very useful nonetheless). Our room was on the second floor and faced on to the street, and there was some noise with the windows open in the evenings, but no more than would be expected from a city-centre location in the week: sleeping was never a problem. There was an internal courtyard accessible from the second floor which seemed to be very quiet. The staff were pleasant and helpful, both at reception and in the breakfast room, and the breakfast had a good choice, although the breakfast room could get quite busy at times. Overall, a very pleasant hotel in a good location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect base for a city holiday"
The hotel staff are very welcoming and helpful. The room had excellent A/C and a good hot shower as well as Sky TV. Sleep quality was excellent. The hotel is also perfectly situated just a 10 minute walk from the station and aerobus stop and ten minutes the other way to tourist attractions, but is in a quiet street. I have no hesitation in recommending […] the Metropolitan. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Hotel in Bologna"
Stayed here with my daughter in June. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and the location of the hotel is excellent - just off the main street and within walking distance of all the main attractions. Breakfast was good - plenty fresh fruit. Only criticism is noise from the hallway outside our room. Depends on the thoughtfulness of other guests I […] suppose but the hallway is fairly bare and just seems to amplify any noise. Apart from that no complaints and I'd definitely stay here again.

"wonderful service and perfect location"
hotel is perfectly located literally 50 meters from the main part of town yet it is very quiet. the service is exceptional with everyone so helpful rooms were clean and very comfy bed (only slight minus was the shower which wasn't very hot or powerful). overall highly recommended. and bologna itself is wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super central base."
Very central and convenient, especially if you are on foot. Ten minute walk from the station. Friendly staff and very helpful. Hotel is smart and full of character and good breakfast buffet. My room was a double room but very small (They did tell me this on check in and I was staying only 1 night) but it was very clean and had all the ammenities you […] would expect. A great base for exploring Bologna. Good value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good modern hotel in central bologna"
This hotel is really well positioned in the centre of bologna, 5 minutes walk to the main square. Out superior room was large and spotlessly clean and nice and peaceful. The room was all white, which may be a bit austere for some tastes. The reception staff were helpful and booked a restaurant for us when our original booking went astray.Genuine Expedia guest review

"excellent city centre location"
My two daughters and I really enjoyed our stay at Metropolitan in Bologna. It is a super little hotel very well located for the city sights as well as the train station and only a short taxi ride from the airport. The service was very good and the air conditioning a god send in the very warm weather.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful central hotel"
Wonderful hotel. Strongly recommend. Very nice and modern with great location and pleasant roof garden.Genuine Expedia guest review
The entrance to the Metropolitan is impressive. From then on, however, the hotel disappoints. Breakfast tries too hard to be modern and stylish when what is really needed is a little more space. There is a huge tidemark as you venture upstairs and the decor, upkeep and comfort of the rooms is hugely disappointing. And there's no air-conditioning.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel for this price on a very central location. Very helpful staff and great breakfast. Our only complaint was that our room was a bit warm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel mit Stil und Service"
Ich war in diesem Hotel bereits vor 8 Jahren einmal. Schon damals war der Aufenthalt sehr angenehm. die Lage ist optimal und der Service sehr zuvorkommend. Bei der Ankunft haben wir ein kostenloses Upgrade bekommen und die Zimmer waren wirklich super! Leider war es beim Frühstück so voll dass wir keinen Platz mehr im kleinen Speißeraum hatten, was aber […] kein Problem war denn in dem kleinen netten Kaffee gegenüber traf sich ganz Bologna zum Frühstücken.
