        It was a good night in a hotel located near from the city center. Good reception and free internet

        I was a little bit deceived by the breakfast, especially the coffee which was awful.

        Very friendly staff,hotel close to everything.Very clean and calm room.

        Hotel is located about 4 blocks from the train station and a 15 minute cab ride to the airport. It's also located on a main strip with lots of shopping, restaurants and easy access to the largest plaza in Bologna. The staff was extremely helpful in arranging an early morning taxi and printing out my boarding pass.

        The carpeting was stained and worn out.

        Location is good.

        The single room I stayed in was miniscule, plus there was only a tiny skylight, so no windows! The breakfast was typically Italian, coffee and biscotti pretty much, but I guess that's what one should expect from a 'breakfast buffet' in Italy.

        Near by center and railway station

        The location of the hotel is perfect - near the train station on the main street with a lot of shops. The area is easy-acceseable and unexpectedly quiet. The room was clean and the breacfast was nice - good coffe and usual choice of pastry.

        The staff wasn't friendly

        Convenient location, competent, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value for the money.

      • Older travelers
        4.6

        It is central and the staff were friendly and helpful.

        The hotel was very overpriced for the degree of space and comfort it offered. Our room was quite cramped on the 4th floor, though overlooking the back it was quieter. The bed was incredibly hard! One bathroom had a shower on the wall with no curtain to contain the water and the other tiny bathroom was trying to be a 'wet room' - we never used it. The bedroom was very budget - small cupboards, cheap furniture, and the room rate was Euros 994.00 for 4 nights, including breakfast. Breakfast was pretty poor, too. Ordinary and not large. This would have been fine if it was half the price.

        The reception was very helpful.

        My room smelled horribly. From the time I first entered it, to when I left, it had this horrible smell of smoke and feces. Also, the floor was very dirty.

        good location,and great sound proofing in rooms,no noise from outside

        breakfasr a bit poor
