Score from 542 reviews Very good
The hotel is beautiful and our room was amazing! Perfect location and the breakfast buffet was great, even for my vegan partner :) We had access to the wifi and the fitness gym as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Wi Fi complicated
Good location, good value for money
Parking is a bit of a stretch but not critical to overall experience
Location right in front of train station.
Booking.com customer given smallest room on floor, but it did have a train station view. At check in only one worker, hence a line up. But, she was productive with a good attitude. Check out encountered a husky woman (TG?) thatI perceived as misandrous. Called her on an inappropriate remark to me, and instead of correcting it immediately went into denials with the support of the lady who seemed to be senior at the counter. Eventually, they both offered in my opinion insincere, sarcastic apologies. I was happy to pay just to get away from the negative vibes. Breakfast crew was great for Italian service levels, and very friendly and smiling.
first rate hotel, facilities, and location in front of Bologna centrale, also soundproof rooms, Luciano in restaurant was very helpful, and efficient
only 30 minutes on Lobby computer,
Comfortable and well appointed rooms. Excellent soundproofing. Good breakfast selection. Very convenient for links to airport (bus and taxi right outside)
15 minute walk to historic city centre. Free Wifi crippled to almost be unusable in effort to sell €8 "Premium" WiFi.
Central location gives easy enjoyment into the centre of Bologna.
Modern, clean rooms. Well appointed. Clean bathroom with separate shower. Comfortable beds, pillow menu. Close to train station . Good breakfast.
Location. Room , breakfast , all good
Very comfortable room, good breakfast and well located opposite the railway station.
Location, across from railway station but only 15 minute walk to old city; Personable and professional staff; Large and well appointed bedroom; Great bar and restaurant with excellent kitchen; lavish breakfast buffet
Insufficient screening for shower results in water on bathroom floor
Fantastic staff, facilities, and breakfast. Great stay!
Not a single complaint or concern.
Great value for money, big room and no trouble with noice (got room facing the backyard).
The head waiter was very stressed during breakfast. Seems the dining room is to small for the number of rooms, or maybe it is just that we as guests manage to come all at once.
So professional excellent breakfast only disappointment was we only stayed 1night
Nothing NOT to like !!!
Location to Train, centre of town, easy to walk around to see sites
Shower ...too small.
Very comfortable modern hotel with good service and friendly staff. Great choice for breakfast and I could even order an espresso instead of instant! Well appointed bedroom with comfy bed, efficient air conditioning and blackout curtains ensured a great nights sleep.
Maid service slow...... Had returned mid afternoon from early exploration of city to find room not made up (2.30). We didn't mind walk in/out of heart of Bologna but be prepared for 20+min walk to get to old part of city.
From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful. We had booked a superior room but were upgraded to an executive room. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The dining room menu was brilliant. I asked if I could have an item (vegetable stack) which was not on the menu that day but was the previous night. No problem at all. Wished all the accommodation was like this hotel
Everything. Lovely quiet room facing the back on a high floor. Great breakfast, plenty of choice. Very helpful reception staff. Fantastic location opposite the railway station and handy for buses. The airport bus stops just outside the station. Just a 10 minute stroll to the centre of the old town and a major supermarket.
A modern, efficient hotel - very conveniently placed by the station. A small problem with the electric supply in our room led to a very speedy upgrade to another room. So all in all a good experience.
Price Facilities Breakfest Location Staff Comfort
The room was large and comfortable, with a kettle and coffee (our first in Italy). The breakfast was especially noteworthy with a great choice. The staff seemed rushed off their feet though, and did not volunteer extra coffee.
Although we had chosen a train station location for convenience, there was little to eat in the vicinity without going further into town. The hotel check-in/check-out seemed to take about 20 minutes, and they really couldn't cope with the building queue.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Rooms are very quiet. Location is central, about 10-15 minutes walk from the main square and right in front of the railway station, where the bus to the airport also stops.
Hotel was typical of a business type hotel - clean, efficient and pleasant to stay in but no atmosphere
location - We found the area scary and intimidating. We were sorry we didnt eat at the hotel where restaurant looked ok. We eat in a nearby restaurant which was disgusting. However, If you need to catch a train the hotel is right across the road from the train station. Overall We didn't like Bologna and would not visit again. There are so many other lovely places to visit in `italy
This hotel was right across the road from the train station. The staff were lovely and let us check in early. They were extremely helpful. The hotel is also well-placed in terms of being able to walk to lots of the sites. Some great shopping nearby! The breakfast was excellent.
