great views; great location; nice staff; moderate prices for Bologna.
bed was near door.
Beautiful old building, nice room, pleasant bar during the evening, and excellent breakfast.
The safe in the room didn't work and although we reported this to reception we didn't get any feedback, and it didn't seem to get fixed. Also, tea and coffee facilities in the room have to be specifically requested, and we only realised this was possible at the end of our stay.
Central location Competent and friendly staff. Clean and confortable room. Ideal to visit Bologna.
We stayed a few times in Best Western hotels in different countries and always enjoyed our stay. And this hotel was no exception. Good location, clean and spacious rooms with balcony, friendly, helpful English speaking staff and nice breakfast. Everything you would expect from a good hotel.
Excellent location Good breakfast
Some reception personnel not friendly
I stayed 1 night in Bologna and I enjoyed the hotel location combined with value for money. Small room & breakfast but a very reasonable price. What I enjoyed most was that even I paid a very economic price, the staff treatment was as in 5 stars hotels. The woman at the reception helped me to find a shop for toys and later recommended to me an excellent restaurant nearby. Without her help I should haven’t enjoy Bologna as I did. Thanks madam!
Excellent friendly staff- lovely terrace for breakfasts. Noisy but unavoidable in that location.
The central location is excellent for visiting Bologna's sights but this is a quiet hotel.
The hotel has a lot of potential, receptionist recommend a very good resturant.
Not even a team of Navy seals would find this hotel, no one in the city speaks enough English so prepare yourself for a frustrating time finding the hotel. Eventually after 3 hours I parked at the train station and caught a taxi to the hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are very tired looking, my shower was non existent. For some reason the staff started vacuuming outsite my room at 8 in the evening.
Nice rooftops view from the terrace on the 3rd floor. Great staff very friendly ;-)
A bit pricey.
The location, the staff, the exterior.
The interior of the hotel was tired (but still clean) and during two nights of storms, we did not sleep at all as the shutters were falling off the windows. It is a serviceable hotel.
all personal was very friendly very good location nice breakfast it was very clean all
Old furnitures and bad smell around
staff very helpful quality of sersvice central location
price too high no tea and kettle in room so you can't have any coffee/tea when you leave early for airport
Great Location for the old City; Very Pleasant & Helpful Staff
Rooms small and old, although refurbished. No A/C working, it was very hot in the room; no tea making facilities in the room; beds not comfortable and bed cover was threadbare. Breakfast good but no restaurant service during the remainder of the day. We ordered takeaway from outside once and used the hotel facilities.
LOCATION - BREAKFAST
NO WAY OF MAKING ONESELF COFFEE
The location towards the downtown is perfect. The personell was very helpful to advise on directions to drive. Parking is very comfortable though a bit expensive. But that's in the very centre of old town.
It was a bit complicated to find the hotel while driving a car.
The maid's room would have been a step up....
Breakfast, roof terrace, balcony.
Staff is very kind.
This hotel is certainly not a 4 star hotel. The room was the smallest i ever stayed in and cold everynight as the heater is not working. U can hear everything your neighbours are doing waking you up each time they flush the toilet. The shower is so small that if u are size 42 u cant raise your hands up to shampoo your hair.
Breakfast and bar area employees excellent, very, very helpfully.
Rooms, bathrooms are awful, horrible. Rooms are clean, but disgusting design, very old furniture, very small shower, no slippers.
Hotel position and car parking. Wonderful staff. Public balcony and roof terrace views. Walk out of front door and you are in 'prime pitch ', reccomended .
Nothing - the drive to the hotel needs care , phone and they will guide you in
Great views from the roofdeck Excellent location...close to central piazza.
Location and staff.
Superb location Wonderful rooftop views of old city Extremely helpful and friendly staff Right in the midst of hustle and bustle of University life that makes Bologna quite special.
Difficult access with car, but that is to be expected in a City built before the car age.
