In Bologna's historic old town, surrounded by winding streets, the Hotel Metropolitan is an unexpectedly noble and generous MICE location. Manko: The meeting room is in the basement and also otherwise the rooms a lot of equipment. bologna

Luxury between narrow streets

The hotel metropolitan, which narrows itself into the alleys, makes from the outside rather a modest impression, but it has then in itself. 35 standard rooms, five suites and ten apartments, the three-storey hotel offers. On the second floor there is a roof garden.

The standard rooms are actually so small that you can hardly move in it, the apartments with kitchen are all the more generous. Unfortunately one could not use the kitchen during my visit. bologna

Equipment with little pitfalls

Also the preparation of the warm water proved to be tricky. And also room phones are missing in the apartments unfortunately, which is a problem because the front desk is a few streets away.

The hotel is air-conditioned, the rooms are equipped with lights, which I find something superfluous. Encrypted WIFI is available throughout the hotel. Also the breakfast is for Italian standards comparatively good.


Meeting room up to 40 people

In the cellar there is a meeting room for up to 40 persons. In a week, four meetings will take place here. How big the capacity and also the amount of the prices is then what is going on in Bologna.

Renting a one-day meeting room, including a coffee break and lunch, costs around 250 Euro. A standard room costs between 80 and 260 Euro per night depending on the season, an apartment between 120 and 400 Euro, a suite never less than 200.

Exceptional tours from rafting to cooking classes

Even if Bologna is rather the classic business and meeting city, it is also possible to organize extraordinary tours here. For example rafting trips in inflatable boats through the underground Bologna.

Or a joint cooking class in the typical Ferrarese restaurant “La Campanella”, just over half an hour's drive from Bologna. Agritourismo is a family business in which everyone helps, from children to great-grandfathers.

Traditional culinary delights

10 to 15 people can learn from mother Lorella and son Mirco how to make “Cappellacci di Zucca”, ravioli with pumpkin filling. The family has hired someone to translate into English.

Bologna is also home to the University, the oldest university in the world, with its historical pathology. The Mercato Di Mezzo invites you to enjoy a culinary experience with its rich selection of food and drinks.



Good food between historic sites

In the “Osteria del Sole”, the oldest in the city, guests have been able to enjoy the house wine, their own or previously bought food at the Mercato since 1465 ( Good and typical food and wine can also be enjoyed in the Ca 'Pelletti restaurant (
