    Fabulous

    Because I was on a business trip the hotel was well positioned re buses and the main train station. My wife also enjoyed the location due to access to buses and the main shopping strip. It is a good 3 Star Hotel by Italian standards. N.B. Breakfast was ideal for what we wanted.

    Very nice hotel, located in the center of the city. The room,I stayed in, was very light, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty,though the milk was mixed with water (but it happens in most of the hotels). The hotel is located not far from the railway station,it's not hard to find it. I strogly recommend this hotel, it's very nice

    the location

    mosquitoes bites me all the night.the single room was small as a prison and 75 euro for a night was to expensive not worth it.

    Superb

    The staff is really friendly and helpful. They offered me what I had asked. The breakfast is ok. They change towels everyday.The hotel is well- centred - 5 minutes from the railway station and the same time to the city centre. From the airport we took a bus shuttle to the railway station (6 euros) and then we walk to the hotel. The street is busy but also safe to walk at night. From the rail station we went to Verona city - 1h30 for 18 euros (it deserves a visit).

    Nice hotel located on the main street of Bologna, close to the city center. Close access to the train station. Very clean. Really 3 star hotel. Furnuture is new, no carpets on the floor which makes it even more clean. Nice breakfast with a good chose of food.

    No free-of-charge internet.

    Good

    For an Overnight stay it was fine. Rooms are clean and despite being road facing with window limited noise was heard. Only downside - please get some ventilation in rooms as very warm at night. Lovely service from staff - even given free bottle of water in mini bar. Thanks

    Exceptional

    It is central, 10 minutes from Piazza Maggiore and 10 minutes from the train station. Clean rooms, excellent service, excellent breakfast (for south European people), great value for money, staff very pleasant, wifi (not included in the price), no noise from outside (at least in my room).

    The location was really good, right in the middle of town and not far from the station. Staff was nice and the room was really good.

    Fabulous

    I loved the breakfast.

    The heating was very poor in the room. Froze the whole night. We were honeymooners and no special attention or package was given to us even though we indicated so in the booking.
