Score from 1251 reviews Very good
Location, in between train station and main streets. Quite side street, but close to great restaurants. Staff went out of the way to help us look up info on the internet.
Wi-fi was out for a day and we were very dependant on it.
Staying on business for a few days, albeit with a little time to explore - we chose this hotel based on reviews and its location close to the centre - the train station is also fairly close by and the airport bus stops across the road as well. Very welcoming staff, clean room (spacious in our case), quiet at night, good location for wandering about the town. Wifi fine so able to catch up on work.. All said - recommended..
Great location for the centre, with all its attractions, and the railway station. Clean and comfortable room, nice and quiet, and good breakfast choices.
No real dislikes
breakfast was good good location
layout of the hotel is a bit odd i didnt understand the seat in the bathroom shower was a bit small no english tv stations two twin beds pushed together with no topper, so we kept getting a gap in the middle
Staff quickly made adjustments when my needs changed.
Excellent location - in the heart of Bologna.
The breakfast looked fantastic - visually. But in quantities - insufficient. It is a noisy locaton during the night. If you have a car it will be a problem although they have a garage 200 meters from the hotel but you must reach the hotel first to be allowed to park your car there. One loses a lot of time for this procedure.
I liked The room And The breakfast girata were noi su thought room not so silent
Room not quiet enough in The mornings
Staff were lovely and friendly and helpful with fantastic English.. I got the feeling they would bend over backwards to make your stay a more pleasant one.. Room was compact and the bathroom was very modern with it's sliding glass doors entering into a compact yet well laid out bathroom.. it was cleaned every day.. and even though it was in the middle of the city by a busy bar, It was comfortable..
Wi-fi wasn't great, cut off a few times after little time and had to reconnect and log back into it.. nothing else
Clean and comfortable.Very helpful staff, especially Anita on reception
Lovely quiet, clean room-centrally located hotel. Staff had perfect English and helped us with directions and suggestions of where to eat. Fast broadband.
The price of accommodation for each night was not obvious when we booked. The third night was really way over our budget compared to the first two nights. I think each night should be individually priced to help travellers.
The balcony of room. I could stand there to have coffee, to watch people enjoy food.
Breakfasts: very good, and extraordinaly aesthetic (I have never seen before so aesthetically prepared breakfast table in a hotel) In the center yet totally calm Help with luggage (I did not need it but it is a nice gesture) Helpful staff
Pillows unconvenient for me - among the four pillows available, there should be some different than others to enable choice
The staff at the hotel are very friendly & very helpful, always enjoy coming back to this hotel Great location
Wifi can be patchy Rooms standard varies - some have modern bathrooms, others older
Upon arrival we were greeted by Sara. She was a bright and cheerful lady full of information. Her understanding of the city (particularly the restaurants was fantastic). All the staff were great! Thank you.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the room was lovely. Such easy access to all the bustle of Bologna but then felt like returning to a homely tranquil place to escape when you wanted to. I'd definitely stay here again.
Family was a little on the small side but did the job
We stayed in Hotel Metropolitan for 1 night in triple room. Splendid location, 3 minutes from main square, shops, restaurants and bars. Room was lovely! It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Great value for money. Amazing breakfast! All staff are very friendly and helpful. Receptionist gave us detailed information about local restaurants, sights and places to visit, and marked the best ones on the map.
The location, and the friendliness of the staff.
The do not have the windows equipped with nets against mosquitos. I ended up the first night with more than 10 bites. There is some problem with the warm water pipes. The floor of the bathroom was hot, like if the heating was in the floor. Unfortunately it was summer, and this rendered the room extremely hot. Either you put the air condition very high, and I do not like to sleep with A/C or you open the windows, to be able to sleep. If you open the windows, see my comment above about mosquitos. Also, there was no way to get fresh water in the bathroom pipe, it was always kind of warm. Probably related to the problem described above.
Clean and modern rooms. Breakfast was great and service very good as well. Great location and the front desk gave great restaurant recommendations. Bologna is a great city, one of my favorites in Italy.
the room was a bit small.
quality of room, particularly bathroom
Friendly staff all around including the breakfast room. Very nice breakfast, continental style. Confortable bed, spacious room.
Our room had windows opening onto a little street, very noisy at times. Meant keeping the window closed at night, and therefore A.C on whole night. Worth inquiring about the rooms opening onto lovely garden.
Everything. Nice breakfast, great friendly staff all set in a comfortable setting.
The attention to design and detail expresses a concern for guests not just to have a comfortable stay but a memorable experience. Breakfast is beaufufully presented by a hotel that cares and has excellent and interesting staff.
