Location, friendliness and helpfulness of staff, general comfort of room
Too hot at night. we had to ask for a fan to supplement the rather weak aircon
Internet was terrible and paid!
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.
The staff were excellant.
Restaurant did not live up to the standard of the rest of the hotel, although the staff were excellant
Comfort of the room
Car park charge
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.
Very nice Hotel with excellent service and facilities.
Having to pay additonal for wifi and parking is a bit of a pain when you pay these sort of room fees.
Our junior suite, the jacuzzi, the wardrobe area, the prosecco and fruit on the table.
Very hard pillows, caused me neck ache. After two nights I had asked for a soft one and I got two immediately.
The location was great, close to everything. The room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. The reception staff very helpful and polite. Because out flight was at 6 PM, they permitted us to check out later than normal, at 3 PM, which we appreciated very much.
I thing that for this type of hotel, the WI Fi should be free. Propably I would suggest a coffe / tea maker available in the hotel rooms.
Some of the staff had a nonchalant attitude.
Very surprised that a hotel charging these prices still charged for wifi whilst it was only 5 euros a day did not like this attitude
Excellent facilities with lots of extras. Very good and varied breakfast. The reception staff were very friendly, from the moment we entered the building and helpful at passing on messages. Although a central location , good access to the station about 5 minutes, it was in a very quiet street.
Location and comfortable room.
No information about hotel given to me when I arrived nor was there any in my room. I had to ask for everything . Staff were not especially helpful or friendly except for one woman on the reception desk. Food at breakfast was fine but coffee poor.
Interior of the hotel is really rich.Accomodation process was quick and pleasant.In the room there is a big choice of TV programs for every taste. If you need taxi,it will come shortly.It was good balance between money and what you get for it
Breakfirst room you also expect more rich as the whole hotel interiour,but it was not unfortunatelly.It is not a problem,but nice hotel must have the same nice dining room.
Unfortunately my stay at your hotel was cut short as I was taken ill and admitted to hospital, The staff were exceptionally helpful when I was seeking medical attention especially Theodora. I had to exten my stay when I was discharged from hospital and the kindness extended to my husband and daughter and son in law when they stayed at the hotel until I was able to return to the UK. Gabi many thanks for your care and attention and my two friends who arrived with me on 15 June wish to thank you for the kindness and help that you gave to them. We also loved the peace and tranquility in your garden
Location, gym & comfort
Outside pool had been closed. Outside terrace got priority use by conferences.
Hotel Carlton caters to its business guests. My husband and I felt like we were part of an assembly line of guests. This hotel lacks warmth and hospitality. Do not stay here if you are visiting Bologna for pleasure. Very disappointed in our stay.
Not far from city center and shops. Clean room and good breakfast with cheese, fruits, cakes etc. Friendly staff.
Although we tried to increase the temperature, room was too cold. There is no off button on air condition.
The location was very convenient, walking distance from the train station, the Mambo Museum, shopping and restaurants. The facilities were very clean and comfortable. Nice rooms and a good selection of items for breakfast.
The staff on arrival was rather cold and somewhat inappropriate. I expected more friendliness and professionalism. Maybe he was just having a bad day.
A short walk to old city.Calm environment.Doormen very helpful and could teach front desk a thing or two about client relations.
Unsmiling staff at front desk.Concierge services very poor and off hand. WiFi has to be bought in 5 or 10 euro units for 24 or 48 hours. Only covers 2devices and in any event failed during busy periods. Very very frustrating and unforgivable .
