    The front desk staff were amazing and so friendly. The breakfast is one of the best we have had at a hotel and the location is fantastic - close to everything.

    Check in starts 14:00 and they don’t accept before then. They don’t put luggage to a secure room and even they do not asked for our names for this. Curtains can not be closed properly hence room was not dark, Air conditioner was extremely noisy.

    Location is easy to reach with a bus in 10mins from city center

    The hotel was located in what appeared to be a very poor area of Bologna, nowhere near the centre. I was unable to sleep due to banging doors and noisy guests. It was pretty abysmal.

    There was nothing I liked. The hotel was absolutely awful!

    Recently build hotel in the suburbs of Bologna. Near exhibition centre (around 1-2 Km, but no walking distance). Consider that it is around 10 minutes by taxi to the city center.

    This is not a business hotel! WiFi is not working and the office center down-stairs is a joke. The is no possibility to print out things and front-desk staff refuses to print out documents provided on PDF. Avoid this hotel when on business travels!

    The hotel has clean and modern rooms and the locations is as one expects - pretty far away from the city center. If you are able to get the right room, the noise level (from the nearby street) is kind of acceptable.

    The walls of our room would need a paint. The walk to the center takes at about 30-40 min, but right in front of the hotel was a busstop. Buses 11B and 11C drive regularly to and from the center of Bologna.

    Especially the breakfast buffet was gorgeous, we looked so much forward to it every day! There were eggs, ricotta, an awesome granola, berries, cheeses and meatcuts, a huge variaty of breads, toasts, croissants, marmelades, honeys, pies, waffles and all kinds of beverages. Everything was constantly refilled. The lady at the reception as well as the breakfast personel were really polite and friendly.

    Receptionists a little bit apathetic. Iron and ironing board not available in the room, but only in a meeting room close to the reception. Small bathroom. It was a little bit cold during the night.

    Nice breakfast. Comfortable bed and pillows.

    The air condition keeps working all night despite I turned it off. Bed was average with hard pillows. Noisy first floor. I had an issue with my credit card and I payed cash so they charged me an extra 20% on price.

    Just average hotel. Surely not for 4 stars. Fair price

    It is not so close to the city center (40 minutes on foot), so better if you go by car. The parking has not too many parking slots, it was full when we arrived at night so we had to leave it out on the street. Not a big deal but I had preferrred to park it inside.

    Courtesy coffee and tea until 23h! Good breakfast, comfortable and clean room. I recommend it!

    Underground car park only for small cars, scraped mine attempting to to negotiate steep slope and narrow bend. Only told afterwards it was only suitable for smaller cars. Be careful!

    A modern, clean and well- managed hotel. Good rooms kept clean and presentable. Complimentary tea, coffee and light refreshments available all day and evening was an unexpected bonus! Staff were really helpful and friendly. A little away from the centre in a rather dingy area but very near the bus stop.
