Great location & staff
Location and breakfast
Although we were only staying for one night we were really pleased with this hotel. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Good choice of breakfast. All in all a wonderful stay! We will definitely return.
Location, Pleasing environment, Modern building and fairly large rooms. The breakfast was good. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Would like to return to it next time in Bologna
Clean and comfortable
Expensive and awkward parking arrangement. Poor quality, expensive dining; overcharged for a bottle of wine from the wine list price. Not enough space for casual refreshments
Excellent breakfats, big room and very convenient location.
Pillows were too soft for my taste.
Hotel is right across the main train station. Good breakfast. There is some walking distance to the city center.
Our room telephone did not work.
sofa bed is uncomfortable. breakfast timing should start from 6:30am.
the reception desk was extremely efficient and friendly; breakfast amazing with fresh seasonal fruit and home made pies; silent room at the back of the hotel despite being in a busy street
the illumination of the hotel in the street was quite dark
Everything is good, from room, bed, facilities, breakfast, location, wifi.
We stayed here after an expensive and disappointing 3 nights in Venice. The hotel was gorgeous, great value for money, free upgrade, lovely breakfast all included!
We needed a car parking space but the car park was full and weren't informed that we had to book one.
Piazza Maggiore is 20 minutes walking distance from the Hotel. The hotel is located close to the main train station. The family room was quite spacious. Breakfast was good.
Location, modern large open public spaces on ground floor, breakfast
My room was getting pretty well worn, there was a large bleach stain on the carpet, not something you would expect at this price level €165 per night. Getting into the onsite car park will test the best drivers!
Pefect location. Big room. Nice bed. Helpfull stuff.
We had a confortable night. Everything was alright - clean room, big enough, silent enough, despite the fact the hotel is so close to the railway station. Close to city center - 5 min.
Proximity to railway station; no street noise; good sized room; very comfortable bed and lovely large bathroom with bath. Excellent WiFi connection with 24hrs being free.
Unfortunately the on-site restaurant was closed.
Location and decor Superb selection of hot and cold breakfast buffet Superb restaurant facilities Quiet rooms with the garden view. Excellent shower and bath Clean rooms and bar snacks Reception staff very helpful
Nothing negative about this hotel as it made my stay very worthwhile.
Wireless quality was low
Position in front of train station, taxi rank, airport bus and dropping off garage for Europcar is excellent. Walking distance of approx 18 minutes to city centre Asinelli tower, pleasant walk under the arches! Personnel was polite and efficient and was willing to help to print boarding passes and give advice, our youngest child was welcomed with an information pack and a gift, nice touch. Breakfast was plentiful and good quality, plenty of fruit, cakes and hot food catering for vegetarians and not. Room service was prompt. Restaurant menu is varied. Good selection of snacks.
To leave after three days!
All is super!!!
The breakfast was outstanding!
Public areas Breakfast Staff Room Location
I was given a room where the shower was adapted for a wheelchair. The plastic curtain enclosed two sides and was much too close to the shower head for comfort. When I opened it water went all over the floor and I had to put towels down to go into the bathroom. I was only there one night and was going straight out or I'd have asked for a different room.
Nice and close to the train station. Walking distance to tourist attractions. Good breakfast. Reasonably priced.
Plumbing in bath/shower was hopeless. Rooms were a bit tired. Shower/bath was fairly clean but far from spotless. Not what you'd expect for $170 a night.
Service, staff, breakfast, station just in front, city center at 10 min walk
Terrible booking service and very poor wifi quality
Close to rail and bus.
Free WiFi-very-very slow. Sometimes very slow coffee service at breakfast. Limited choice of cheese and ham at breakfast. At incheck room was equipped for single use only.
