My room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. I found the buffet breakfast perfectly adequate with plenty to choose from. The somewhat unusual WiFi arrangements weren't a problem. The staff were generally friendly and helpful.
Friendly, helpful staff. Plain & unpretentious. Excellent breakfasts. Quiet yet central location. Walking distance of major sights, a variety of eating places & shops. Easy 20 minute walk to railway station. Close to bus stops & to airport shuttle. Just what we wanted.
The centrality, the cheap room, no noise pollution from outside so very quiet, great black-out curtains. Nice stars on ceiling!
Only getting 1 hour free wifi; breakfast was mostly cakes and biscuits but also tinned fruit or unripe fresh fruit. Not many Healthy choices.
cleaning:only 4 times they clean my room and i was there for 2 weeks and more!! also the bathroom wasn't in my room, was outside, in the hall,eventhought the price was very very hight there wasn't comfort!
Great atmosphere; welcoming and relaxing.
Staff, very helpful Good buffet breakfast Although maybe in need of updating, very clean. Great central location for exploring the city, although beware a 20 minute walk to the station. Hotel exactly as described.
Very small shower in single room. This is an observation not a critisism as this was highlighted before I booked.
Traveling with our 90 yr old mother, safety, comfort and location critical. It was close enough to walk from train station, close to piazza, and some good restaurants across the street (saracena). Highly recommend this hotel for value. Breakfast was excellent and just down the street from oldest bakery in bologna.
Terrible wifi, they charge for it(welcome to italy!) and the access is spotty and frustrating. Front desk personnel gets easily frustrated with questions, and gave incorrect information about taxis back to hotel from sanctuary lucca so we got stranded and fortunately a nice person called a taxi for us. Mom is 90 years old and getting stuck up top of the hill with no way back after being told taxis are available up there was very stressful.
Hotel muito bem localizado, quarto confortável, café da manha muito completo e gostoso. Funcionarios atenciosos,e o preço é muito em conta. Eu recomendaria e com certeza voltaria para este hotel. Excellent localization of the hotel, just in the middle of the most important touristic points, very good breakfast, and the price is really good, comparing to other hotels. I would recommend this hotel.
Nada a reclamar. Nothing to complain about.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location is great for getting to the main sights, the train station by bus and a stop for the airport bus.
The location is great, just in the center of the city!
The main street was very noisy and the window of the room are not well isolated, so it was really difficult sleep, and the bathroom (in general the room) smells really bad, even though it was tried to mask with a room sprey! and the bed was not very comfortable. Breakfast was good if you like bakery stuff.. but there was no eggs, cheese, olives or fresh fruits! so, I was highy disappointed at the end!
Breakfast was great
Our room was awful. Bad springy bed, old bedding, the towels looked more like rags than towels.
Great location- large room - great breakfast - clean and friendly
Hard to find with GPS and language barrier (English) on phone didn't help
Good hotel for a reasonable price in a very central location
The room was perfectly adequate for a 1/2 night stay. The breakfast was the best we had in 2 weeks in Tuscany.....real value for money stay. Also fantastic location and safe environment.
Old world charm of the buildings around . Very nice to walk around in the evenings. Perfect for tourists to Bologna.
Wifi was bad.
£cheap rooms for such a central location. 2 minutes walk to Piazza Magiorre. Good sized room with en-suite and views out across the rooftops. Airport bus drops you off just a few minutes walk to & from hotel. Breakfast was very nice - traditional continental spread, with a particularly good selection of pastries.
The bed was a little hard, but that was a very minor issue and didn't prevent a good night's sleep. There's a lift up to the 3rd floor of the building which houses the hotel. If your room is on 4th floor, you'll need to take your cases up some stairs - this wasn't an issue for us at all, but may deter some people (although staff may assist here??)
Good central location, nice rooms with beautiful old furniture, great breakfast. Reasonably priced for a city hotel.
Very tiny bathroom, high ceiling and wood floors made for a noisy room so people walking in the hall and closing doors were heard during the night.
Locaootion - very near Piazza Maggiore Outstanding breakfast buffet - cereals, multiple kinds of pastries, coffee and juices, fresh and canned fruit, milk, breads, cheese, crackers, cookie, and more! Staff - very helpful; most speak good English
Noise - room fronted Ugo Bassi, but closing windows helped tremendously. If you want quiet and not a view, ask for a room that does not front a street
Location Breakfast was good
External bathroom Hostel type facilites
Location Breakfast Room size
Uncomfortable bed. Shower didn't drain away properly, resulting in a flooded bathroom.
- breakfast with vast choice of food, not only sweet but also sandwiches - very nice room, spacious and designed in palace style - great location - in the centre of the city, 15 min by cab to the airport - one hour of wifi was free of charge
- there was no pot to boil water in the room - cappuccino served at the breakfast was awful, probably because of powdered milk inside coffee machine
