Il letto un poco scomodo
Lo staff è stata una piacevole sorpresa
3 May 2015
This was our first visit to Bologna and the reception team of Valentina, Annalisa and Riccardo at the Grand Elite made sure that our first impression of Bologna was friendly and welcoming. All staff in the hotel including the restaurant were helpful and efficient and ready with a welcome from early morning to late at night. We also enjoyed the great choice of food provided for breakfast.

could not provide iron for the room, poor wifi
location, we booked the hotel with 80% of the price, staff was ok, good english at the reception

The toilet was dirty when I first moved in it was in a disgusting state and smelled like someone had just been for a big one. I had to wait a whole day for them to sort it out completely. In the following days the cleaning could be a bit indifferent. The wifi was horrible could not watch a video in my own room the wifi was as slow as a snail and even when it worked it was only ok for browsing sometimes. Anytime you wanted to buy a coffee you had to drink it then wait for one of the waiting staff to present the bill to the reception staff and pay there. It would have been much more pleasant if they had served and taken the money in the same place. The walls were like paper could hear my neighbours noises talking and trips to the toilet too much of everything. One even had the tv on past midnight noise was a major problem on certain days people coming back and talking loud.
Staff on reception apart from one middle aged women with brown hair were very helpful and polite and so were the porters always had a pleasant manner. The same with the reception staff when ever I had a question about local amenities and how to get to places they were very helpful and supportive. Most of them seemed to speake a good standard of English and Spanish. Nice interior liked the retro feel and the bedding was a bedroom were nicely designed like the balcony being there and the view of the room was fantastic.

The staff didn't replace the toiletries and we had to rationalize 2 soaps and 2 small bottles of shower gel for our 4 day stay.
The bed was super comfortable and the room clean. Also, the breakfast was amazing and had a very large variety of food on display in the breakfast room.

outlets were sparse, old decor

The wifi in the rooms was very weak. The beds were large, but not very comfortable. The restaurant on site was convenient, but both dinner and breakfast options were limited, and nothing extraordinary. Limited options for children.
The hotel was easy to find off of the Autostrade, and included secure, on-site parking. Our room was ready on time, and the staff all spoke english, which helped get us settled quickly.

Problems with WiFi - can live with this.
Not typical Italian breakfast, with one croissant and a cup of coffee but a great choice of food. For sure won't leave hungry. Nice room with big bathroom. Cleaned every day.

It's a bit out of city centre - be prepared to walk 20 min or so, you can also take a bus just outside the hotel
Abundant buffet-breakfast, courteous and professional personnel, location - close to the airport: if you are more than 2 - cheaper to take a taxi than bus

Wifi was only functional in the hotel lobby. You weren't allowed to eat in the room and, in case you did, at the end you had to pay extra for "extraordinary cleaning"
I liked the style of the room, although in daylight it looked a worn down. 15 minutes walk to city center.
30 March 2015
The wi-fi conexion was instable, but they have told us during our stay.
The kindness and support from the staff.

Very poor wi-fi in the room
Clean and comfortable room, good location
23 March 2015
Very difficult to find on the street parking Negotiating the onsite car park was very difficult with a large car and at €15 a day very expensive. Previous guests half consumed food and other debris still in the room. I was put in a smokers room and not offered an option! Should not offer aircon if it is not available!
Ample size room lovely large desk in the room with ample electrical points. Good breakfast selection. Complementary small bottle of water supplied daily in fridge a lovely touch.Plenty of absorbent towels supplied.Friendly helpful and informative staff.

A bit far from the center. But ots OK, a bit of walk don't kill anyone and there are several buses towards the center and the ralway station.
Great hotel, especially for the price I paid (49€/night). Reactive and nice service, spacious and clean room, great bathroom, good breakfast buffet. I stayed five nights and I would return if I come back to Bologna. My room looked on a quite courtyard with a small balcony (I guess rooms looking on via aurelio saffi are more noisy). I found an excellent café nearby at the corner of via del timavo via aurelio saffi, hold by a friendly guy. The perfect place to take a capuccino in the morning before going to the center.

Wifi didn't work. They kind of fixed it the last day of our stay but it still didn't work properly.
Our room was very big and clean. We loved out mini fridge. Vert nice english speaking staff
19 March 2015
Far from the center, designed some time ago but clean and nice.
Good connection with the airport, Champions League in hotel. Bus stop to center nearby.
18 March 2015
Poor wifi reception in room and lack of facilities for making tea in room
Helpful staff on front desk and at breakfast
17 March 2015
I stayed here on 22 Feb 2015 and on 15 Mar 2015. Both times there was a note at reception saying WiFi maintenance work. This hotel has no working WiFi and dishonestly advertises WiFi.
10 March 2015
No wifi in the hotel, rooms very old fashioned, stuff can get very charging guests for bringing food to eat I the room ...c
10 March 2015
Noisy all the time, especially electric noise in the room. The quality of the breakfast was very poor. It's far from the city center, so you always have to take the bus or taxi. My room was so tiny and not nice, that was not a room of a 4 stars hotel!! The "free toiletries" included only a soap and a shower gel-that's it! Not even a shower cap! I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
8 March 2015
Poor service at check in! Breakfast: Egg o bacon, cold and shabby
the hotel is good for that money
3 March 2015
No WiFi in the room what I consider as a shame in 21 century in 4star hotel
Close to the airport, decent breakfast, quiet room with fantastic view at Santa Luca.

Warm welcome, friendly attention. At the front desk they spoke in English and pretty well. Nice room, all very clean. Really comfortable bed. Good located, walking distance from the city center
