    Good

    Location was perfect!

    Rooms are very small. Our shower did not have cold water at all. Luckily they had an extra room and we transferred rooms at 11 in the evening. Did not particularly like the plastic cups in the bathroom, made the hotel feel cheap

    Exceptional

    The location of the hotel was perfect, right in the center of the city. The rooms were spotless and good size. The staff couldn't be more helpful. We also enjoyed a good breakfast. We wish all of our hotels were like the Metropolitan.

    good location, good breakefast, confortable room, free WLAN!

    little hard to get there by car - GPS didn't find the address, since cars are not allowed via dell'orso and we had to cruise through the tight streets of Bologna

    The location. My parents stayed in one of the renovated garden rooms, which were great. And staff was ok too - just ok. Breakfast was good for a 3star hktel although the staff serving bfast were not so pleasant.

    Our room was so different from my parents'room. Theirs were renovated in the garden and ours in the main building. The shower was so horrible, tiny and didn't ha e a handheld so it was impossible to bathe my toddler. The room was old and the tv was being repaired or smth so no tv! Also outside there was a bar with lots of noise past midnight so difficult to sleep!

    Very good

    It was expensive for what you received. The hotel staff placed us in a room on the alley. On the alley there is a wine bar which is very loud, especially in the evening. I had to insist to be moved and was reluctantly given another room. Be sure to check your room before moving into it.

    Expensive for what you received. The evening desk manager was very gruff.

    The Hotel was centrally located and only a 15min walk to the Central train station. Plenty of shopping and restaurants in easy walking distance. Facilities were good and staff friendly and efficient.

    Superb

    The location, the price and above all, the staff.

    The only complaint I have is that there are no towel rails in the bathroom, one has to use the door, the door handle, the radiator or the window latch.

    Fabulous

    The location, the size and the cleanliness of the room, buffet breakfast was pretty good with a variety of sweet stuff. Price was also good for single room (which was in fact a huge double room).

    There was no hot food plates on the breakfast buffet. Cappuccino was awful, not in the standards of Italy.

    Good

    Good location, Very kind and sincerely helpful staff. Room was nice and clean at first glance. Breakfast was good enough.

    The only problem was; Two single beds were put on platforms on wheels. Wheels were not locked, and the beds drifted apart throughout the night. We went to bed late and tired, and had a flight next day. I can't say I could sleep well. During reservation, I had filled the special requests section as "one double bed", because the hotels do not specify whether the room has one double bed or two single beds. Even if they don't drift apart, I prefer double beds instead of two joined beds.
