Excellent location, lovely rooms with access to shared garden area (not all but some rooms). There is also an amazing view from the roof terrace over colorful Bologna. I would recommend the hotel both for couples and families with children.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 January 2017 via mobile

The hotel is terrific. If we come back to bologna we would stay here again. It was very clean, the beds are soft unlike the rest of Italy! The room is spacious. The bathroom is nice and has a good heater in it. The staff are very friendly and made great restaurant recommendations for us.

Followed Trip Advisor to the Metropolitan. This is a great boutique hotel right off Indepencia and close to the main tourist attractions. Hotel was quiet, cool, clean, and very accommodative. Free breakfast was very nice. Will definitely return and recommend to family and friends.

This hotel is a great choice for a stay in Bologna. It is very central, close to lots of restaurants and bars and also the station. It's a 15 minute drive in a taxi from the airport. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms were nicely furnished and modern and we had an amazing waterfall shower in our bathroom....
