1.Room odour (not fresh) 2.Bath tub not well maintained (when our kid tried the whirlpool it got full of various "pieces" and the water stopper got blocked so we had to remove the water with a plastic bin...)
1.Spacious room (junior suite) and overall hotel areas 2.Close to center 3.Easy access by car and train station

The spa was not included in the offer although shown in the activities section. I selected this hotel for its spa so finding out that it was not included was a big disappointment. 30 euro entrance fee per day for the spa
Good breakfast but needing some more fresh fruits and fresh OJ

My wife and visit Bologna at the beginning of December. We were stay at hotel Royal Hotel Carlton for 3 nights. We were very impressed from thehotel and the staff. We highly recommend this hotel people whoappreciate the comfort.

The one thing that let's this hotel down is the Bar Manager who seems more focused on having a really nice bar with everything in its place rather than filling it...infact I'd go as far as to say he doesn't like people in it, making it look untidy. When my wife and I stayed recently, we watched as a group of 5-6 customers who were trying to get an extra chair or 2 round one table were told to put the chairs back. They up'd and left, leaving the 2 bottles of champagne and a Bar Manager throwing his weight around. On another occasion he denied a younger traveller, who was probably cconserving funds, access to his daily selection of nibbles because he didn't want a drink, but was a guest at the hotel. Don't judge a book by it's cover..!!!!!! In my opinion he needs a quick lesson in customer relations....or replacing.
This hotel is almost everything you would want from a business hotel, excellent helpful friendly staff, excellent location, excellent amenties and lastly excellent food.

In the UK it's quite standard to have an iron and an ironing board in the room. When there isn't one, there is normally a room where you can go and iron your shirts. Try to ask that question at Royal Carlton and the staff will look at you as if you asked to bring in your room some live chicken in a cage. "We have a laundry service, there is a price list in your room" is the reply I got.
The hotel is very stylish, clean, it feels very posh and elegant. It's also very close to the centre of town and there is no noise whatsoever in the rooms. The TVs are quite big and they have Sky Italia which in many cases broadcasts in English too (you must select the original language using the remote).

Everything was great, including breakfast. Also, what is provided in the bar when ordering drinks is exceptional-especially the cheese.

must be written that each time the spa entrence is 30 euros! this is one of the reason NOT to choose this hotel Even if you take a massage which cost 90 euros you must add 30 euros to use the spa! if I knew it I would prefer another hotel I blame just BOOKING! which must write this fact
location, food, service

The room was very comfortable. Staff on reception helpful.
November 2, 2014
no coffee machine in the room (isn't that required for a four star hotel?); only Italian TV programmes; only Italian newspapers in the lobby; there was no document about details of the hotel in the room (very strange, never saw before that a hotel missed the chance to present itself once more); for the spa area an appointment is required, there is no easy/free accessible "small" solution of a pool or similar
general setting and design in both the public areas as well as the rooms; quiet room and comfortable bed; very good work-out room; close to center, close to station; very good breakfast; nice bar in the lobby; very good restaurant in the hotel; choice of newspapers in the lobby

Internet was terrible and paid!
October 12, 2014
ludicrous = they charge you 5 euros/day for internet. at their rates this is unacceptable & self-defeating. to make matter worse their internet was NOT working the day we arrived. about 40 patrons were struggling in front of the hotel trying to get a signal on their phones/computers. furthermore: there is NO sign in front of the hotel that parking is NOT allowed. We stopped for 5 minutes to discharge our luggage and we got a ticket!!!!!

the location is on a quiet street ten minutes walk to the main square and five minutes to Bologna central station. The lobby is magnificient with a string of lovely chandeliers. The service at Reception is excellent. The superior double room is spacious with a nice bathroom, though I prefer a shower cubicle.No coffee or Tea making facilities. Also, they refuse to give an Iron and ironing board, saying it is a fire risk! Otherwise, it is brilliant.

Beautiful hotel. Liked everything about it. Fantastic breakfast, lovely spacious room, very clean facilities, helpful staff. Very centrally located although on arrival at train station, late at night, it was a little hard to find.
