"Great location and staff"
The hotel is located near the city centre. The staff was incredibly helpful and we got upgraded to an apartment (the hotel also has a building with apartments) when it turned out our room had to twin beds instead of one double. Definitely recommend this hotel!

Pro: My room had an electric kettle and coffee/tea supplies, a nice touch and very unusual in Italy. The staff (front desk and breakfast room) were pleasant and helpful. Con: The decor in my hallway, dark paint and dark carpet and almost no light, meant feeling blind, especially when coming inside after a bright sunny day (and the mostly-white lobby).

We loved the Metropolitan. The rooms were very well equipped and spotless. We had to change rooms after the first night, and the management fulfilled our request without any problem. The staff was very helpful with respect to finding parking and giving us directions. Couldn't ask for more.

"Nice hotel and good location in central Bologna"
Superb location and very comfortable hotel, with good amenities and friendly staff. The room was very, very nice. My only complaint is that the parking facilities turned out to be a couple of spaces in front of the hotel, which is located in a narrow dead-end alley. Our compact rental car could barely get down the street without getting scratched up.

"World traveler in Bologna"
it is extremely well situated. the staff are extremely friendly. really a pleasant decoration, cleanliness is superb. however, the internet is extremely slow. the sound proofing of the hotel overall is terrible. i am not a morning person, and since i am on vacation, i like to get up at my own leisure. well, this was impossible as i could hear every single noise in the building, including the cleaning staff as they got ready for the many rooms. the bathroom was spacious, but the shower was terrible. the pressure was poor and it kept going from warm to cold, not to mention that you had to use it as a hand shower as the head just did not work. so good pluses and some minuses.

"quite pleased with this hotel! great location!"
This was a lovely place to stay. Service was top notch and the room was very nice and comfortable. A very convenient location, right in the center of town, walkable to everything, including the train station. I'd stay here again. Oh, just avoid the bar/cafe on the corner -- they were very rude, but of course that's no reflection on this hotel.

"HOTEL IN THE CENTRO OF BOLOGNA"
HOTEL is in the centro of Bologna. It is a small boutique hotel very nice place and neighborhood. The only problem is that at night it is very noisy. You can hear people shouting up to the wee hours of the night. I would give special mention to Roberto for the nice service he gave us. And if you are use to big chain hotels this is not for you. Breakfast so few choices. Over all it is clean and newly refurbished

"Good location but poor overall experience."
This is a good, centrally located hotel with excellent access to the centre of Bologna. The hotel was quiet, clean and recently renovated. Our room lacked any sort of outlook and was rather dark. It was also very noisy and constantly assaulted by slamming doors and loud conversations in the corridor. Services provided by hotel staff were minimal - it proved almost impossible to get replacement items such as towels, soap and cups for the bathroom. General requests to reception were met reluctantly and rather curtly. Breakfasts were adequate. Overall, the hotel is well located and ok if you don't have great expectations.

We stayed here for 2 nights before moving on to rimini. The first day we explored bologna city, kind of walked around in circles, but found nice places to eat and drink. The second day we went to the Ferrari museums (the point of the stay). The hotel staff were very nice, helped us with train times and nice places to eat. I would highly recommend!

Great location, great service and nice breakfast. We had a child and an infant with us, the front desk showed us two rooms and let use choose which one we wanted. The breakfast selection is typical for Italy, ie. slim choices, but everything was very good quality. The parking situation is a little tenuous, but worked fine. They have a deal with a garage about five minutes away walking. Great neighborhood, easy access to the best sites in Bologna.

On a business trip with an extra personal day added on. This hotel could not have been better located - right in the heart of the historic district of Florence. Staff were really excellent (and really good looking in some cases!) Our room as a 'standard' room which definitely needed modernization. Good breakfast choice, good gym, good price.

"Lovely, chic hotel in centre of Bologna."
Excellent, well priced hotel in the centre of the city. The hotel is situated off one of the main throughfare in the heart of Bologna and is easy to find. On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful,as there were throughout our stay. The hotel is very stylish and our room was well decorated and clean with very comfortable beds; the room overlooked a passage where there was a bar and at night it could be noisy, however this did not bother us unduly. Breakfast was buffet style and was well presented with pastries, cereals and fruit. We stayed for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time in this lovely city. Would I return to the hotel, definately!! Would I return to Bologna, ditto!!!!

"Ideal City Centre Hotel"
Stayed here for 3 nights on business in September, albeit for a trade show when rates are at their highest. A little sceptical as it only has a 3* rating but there is nothing to fear here. It is ideally placed in a pedestrian side street in the City Centre perfect for walking to all the shopping, tourist attractions and restaurants. It is also walking distance (around 10-15 minutes) from the main station. A small reception and public area with a small area for buffet breakfast that was adequate. The triple room I was allocated at the rear of the hotel was quiet with a double bed and a separate area with a single sofa bed; this area could also be used as a work area. The room and bathroom were clean and the bathroom featured a good shower (no bath). Some of the suites share a small courtyard where you could sit outside. Hotel staff were helpful and I would certainly stay here again.

"Good choice of hotel which I am happy to recommend"
It is an easy journey to/from airport, both taxi fares under 20 euros. Hotel is well located with main square etc just a 5 minute stroll away. We asked for, and got, a quiet room. Reasonable size and facilities. Everything worked. Excellent desk folk and always helpful. Good breakfast with marvellous coffee! We had only four days and on that basis I felt one day was about right for Bologna itself especially as we returned each night - decent local restaurants. The train station is 10 - 15 minutes easy stroll away but I would recommend buying tickets night before if possible. We went out on day trips to Ferrara (a pretty small town but maximum one day and with a car then maybe less), to Ravenna (sadly in the rain as though the mosaics are truly wonderful I should have loved to see them sparkling on a sunny day. Admittedly less time available as the train journey was 1hour 20 minutes but I would have been happy to spend a little more time in Ravenna armed now with some knowledge) and then to Verona which we loved. This being a spur of moment trip we had done no research and rather longer time would have been a good idea. Serendipity gave us a memorable, and pretty cheap lunch by the river. The train service is very cheap by English standards, and quite reliable. We paid more to go to Verona to gain the benefit of a non stop train, journey time 50 minutes but still well worth while.

Ticks all the boxes for the ideal city break experience. Comfortable rooms. Excellent location. More than adequate breakfast offering. Special mention to Roberto, for a welcome which was as warm and genuinely friendly as anyone could wish to have; there are quite a few positive comments about him, and they are spot on, because he is a gentleman and a credit to this fine establishment. Thanks also to Michael, for his helpfulness. Bologna is a beautiful city, up there with the best Italy has to offer. We will be back, and we will look no further than this hotel.

"Pleasant Surprise"
We booked a room at the hotel, not the apartments but upon checkin they graciously offered us a chance to stay in an apartment instead. The location was perfect for getting around the city on foot (we didn't bother with a car) and the staff were really helpful with recommending and booking restaurants. We felt the price for the breakfast was a little steep, so we opted out and found some local coffee bars that opened early instead. Being in the apartments we never even saw what the breakfast looked like though, it may have been very good. They did offer to let us check it out before deciding whether we wanted to pay for it or not.
