    Nice staff and reasonable price.
    • Leisure trip

    • Standard Double Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The room was very small. The location was not great. It is on a very busy road, the SS9, and it is hard to get out on to it from the parking lot. There is not much to do within walking distance. There is a bar next door that has short hours and closes early, and a restaurant. Down the highway a few more steps, there is a fruit market and a coffee shop. The coffee shop seems to be full of prostitutes.

    The staff was great. It had a nice garden area. The breakfast was pretty much standard for Italy, nothing special. The price was quite reasonable. The shower was the best we had in Italy so far. The parking was great. The 87 bus is a 30 minute ride to Bologna and is just a few steps from the hotel. The restaurant next door is very good.

    My stay overall was excellent and I was really impressed with how friendly & helpful the staff were.

    The size and decor of the room - felt the room could have been a bit bigger and had a more brighter decor - although it was still value for money.

    I liked how clean and relaxing the hotel was and the friendliness of the staff - even though the majority of the staff had limited english language capability - their friendliness and willingness to help and support was really nice and went a long way to making me feel comfortable not being able to speak italian !!

    When we booked it we thought of it as close to the airport... indeed it is - but not easy to reach it by bus from there depending on the hour you're leaving because even though by car it takes 8 minutes.. by bus you have to change the bus and wait for the other one and so on and it will take you around one hour to get to the airport. A shuttle service would be great :)

    We really enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were also great :) The location is ok, reachable by 87 bus from the city center.
