This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel and it is a joy to do so, this time we were in the Olive garden, what a great room and so big, Italy offers small rooms but this is a great place to stay and its in the center of every thing. I will be back. DG

We would mirror the other recent reviews. Our room was not one that had the full upgrade treatment but clean and as we were at the back of the hotel very quiet. We walked here from the train station in around 20 minutes and it was easy to find. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. We also found a great nearby...

Just arrived back home after a three night visit to Bologna. We stayed at Metropolitan Hotel, an excellent hotel with a very friendly staff. The owners take good care of you. The hotel has a nice design, not to mention the rooms, especially those in Corte Degli Ulivi (the Olive's Court). Highly recommended to all who would like an oasis...

Stayed at one of the stylish appartments. Very spacious, a bit to slik for our taste maybe, but well equiped and on a quiet street yet still in the middle of lovely Bologna. Staff of the hotel around the corner were very friendly and helpful. Overall, excellent value for money! Would return without any hesitation.

We had a nice stay at the Metropolitan, staff were friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and clean. Only negative was we were at the front of the hotel along the street and it had very loud street noise, even when I was wearing ear plugs. I would stay here again, but only if I got a room...

We loved the hotel's location near the historic center. It is within walking distance to the train station, as well as many of the sights. The staff all spoke English and were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was recently renovated in 2012, and the rooms were comfortable. Our room didn't have a great view but was quiet and next...
