"Good location, hard to find in a small alley."
This place is in a small street, hard to find if you don't know the area. Overall it was a fine stay, good service and good location. I was not into the extra charge for breakfast, but in Italy you don't eat a big breakfast unless you are a tourist.

This was a perfectly lovely hotel in a good location. Nothing spectacular, but the breakfast was good, the room was comfortable, and we loved Bologna. We would certainly stay again. Let them park the car though, the garage is very tight.

"Prime location, modern and comfortable."
Halfway between the train and city center. Not a hotel to linger in, and breakfast is ok, nothing special. Staff makes very good restaurant recommendations? Watch out for the local pickpocket that goes up and down via indepenzia. She is around 5 foot 2 long dark hair and will pretend to ask for a cigarette. She targets Asian men!

The room was very clean and comfortable. It was a little on the smaller side, but the size was fine for me since I was traveling alone. It was also pretty quiet despite being only two levels above the busy street below. The breakfast buffet was big and had a lot of options. The staff is also friendly, and the location was within walking distance to the train station and other attractions I wanted to see. I would definitely stay here again.

"Good for short stay"
Hotel is in a great location, close to everything. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating (they even helped us navigate the streets with our car). Breakfast is included but it's very sparse compared to other hotels we stayed at in Italy. The rooms are small with modern decor. Some rooms are located between floors so you have to use the stairs. Overall, for the price, location and great staff, it's definitely a good find.

We stayed at the appartments part of the facility as our group was large. The appartments are clean and well equipped and easy to get to. Parking is a hassle all over Bologne, so you may want to check by phone for instruction before arriving. Also, driving to the hotel is a nightmare, but so is driving anywhere else in Bologne. Great place to stay and use to see a great medieval treasure..

"Nice hotel if you get a good room"
I"ve stayed at the Metropolitan before and had nice rooms. This time I had a very small and completely dark room, with a window overlooking a shaft. VERY noisy you could hear everyone talking, there was zero light in my room, lightbulb missing in the very dark bathroom. and tiny shower was very claustrophobic, i could barely shower. Won't go back again.

We arrived at the Metropolitan in late afternoon after a harrowing drive through Bologna. Parking was available , and once we realized where it was, we were able to get on to our visit to Bologna. The staff was helpful, but remote. I would say that the visit was ok, but out of the way.

"Beware"
This hotel is directly across from the Central Train Station in Milan. the train station is known for pickpockets and you must be aware of them as they seemed to be swarming. My concern is that I had taken money from my back pocket in the hotel. When I entered a train I caught a pickpocket's fingers in my back pocket. I bent his fingers and he ran. The next time I took money from my front pocket at the hotel. When I entered the train, my money was stolen from that pocket on the train. I really believe someone sits or watches guests at this hotel and relays information to conspirators at the train station so that they earmark tourists and know which pocket or location they might be keeping their money. I pity the tourist who choose to travel to the Expo in Milan in 2015

"Great hotel with warm and helpful staff"
This was a short vacation trip to Bologna (3 days) as we were spending 3 days in Rimini for an event. I did tons of research on hotels in Bologna, compared rates and customer feedbacks. Finally, I decided on Metropolitan. As in any big city, the quality of hotel can be tricky. Many advertised as 4-5 stars hotels but turned out to be sub-par. But Metropolitan was a total surprise to us. The hotel lobby/front desk area is clean, classy, and bright - Very posh!! We were greeted with warm welcome by the hotel staff Anita at the front desk. Check in was done in a matter of minutes. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to our room - It's clean and beautifully decorated with a big window. The bathroom was spacious. NICE!! When it comes to recommendation on restaurants, what to do around town, how to get to places, the hotel staff was extremely helpful. Every evening, Anita would recommend a couple of restaurants for us to try. These are not the tourist type restaurant but places with quality food in decent prices. We were planning a day trip out of Bologna and Anita provided us with all the train schedules. Overall, this was a super great experience at Metropolitan. I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Bologna!!

"Nearly perfect, few minor suggestions"
Our stay was overall great and would absolutely return. The reception and breakfast staff were lovely and so helpful. Location is unbeatable and we were very content. A few suggestions for the hotel but the main thing would be a better breakfast - whilst things were displayed beautifully, it wasn't actually very substantial or varied. Parking is either in a nearby garage or street which is cheaper and the hotel will give a voucher (otherwise street parking is only for residents).

"Great staff, good location..."
We used Bologna and this hotel as our base for 5 days in Emilia Romagna. We stayed in a premium room, which was relatively expensive. The bed and linens were clean and comfortable. The bathroom left a little to be desired; sinks were attractive design but poor in function. The claw foot bath tub would have been a great luxury, but it was not clean. The shower was nice, but the second head did not work. It was a little bit loud, but we were in the center of town. Somebody above us walked around all night in heels almost every night... area rugs may help. The staff was great. We were able to park nearby every night. We had a car and made day trips to Venice, Florence, Parma, Imola and Ravenna... We had a great New Years Eve in the town square and were relieved to be steps from our room.

"Really disappointing - not what I expected"
Staff is incredibly friendly, location is good - off a side street close to main attractions. Hotel is not very comfortable - tile in bedrooms and baths (plus stairs in baths, which can be a dangerous combination when you step out of shower). Room seemed dirty - drapes and linens were a little threadbare. Stayed for two nights - wish I could have left after first night. Booked because it had great reviews, but once I got there, was completely confused how. Ended up switching to I Portico, which was slightly cheaper and SO much nicer.

"Hotel right in the heart of the city"
We recently stayed one night in this hotel. The room was quite small for 4 people, though nicely appointed. Our reservation apparently did not include breakfast, and the cost of this was 10 additional Euros (which we did not choose to pay). The room was small for 4 people (though listed as a quad) but nicely appointed. Our showed drain was completely clogged, causing a flood. Hotel staff provided us with a key to the room next door so that we could shower. All in all, an OK experience, but for the cost, I would have expected breakfast to be included, at the very least.

We stayed in the apartment for four while on a girls trip to Italy and it was perfect. Modern design, clean and comfy beds, huge bathroom by European standards (with a giant rain-fall shower-head). Claudio and his staff were welcoming, helpful and truly proud of their city. He assisted with a food tour and reservations at two very small osterias that were amazing. Perfect location, ten minute walk from the train station and about the same to major landmarks. Lots of shopping nearby and a fantastic Enoteca around the corner. I would stay here again without a doubt.

"Small but worth it"
The hallways leading to the rooms are darker--a stark contrast to the bright and beautifully modern lobby, but the rooms are comfortable, though small. The bed was comfortable, and the windows insulate well from the noise outside. Our window opened to a shopping mall window across the narrow street, so for privacy we kept our curtains drawn. The location is wonderful. A few, easily walkable blocks from the train station, in the middle of the stunningly beautiful medieval area of the city, with lots of restaurants and shops. On Sundays they close many of the streets to traffic, so the busy area in the center near the train station becomes a pedestrian area. Plan, if you can, to spend a Sunday there. We really enjoyed our visit and hope to return soon.
