Offering spacious accommodation and a large buffet breakfast, Grand Hotel Elite is a pleasant 20-minute stroll from Bologna's Due Torri towers. Rooms and suites are elegant and comfortable, with a retro 1970s feeling. All air-conditioned, they also feature an interactive TV with satellite channels and 4 pay-per-view films. The gourmet Cordon Bleu Restaurant serves a combination of Emilia-Romagna specialities and international cuisine, plus a wide selection of regional wines. Bike rental, tourist information and a tour desk are all available at the hotel's 24-hour reception. The city centre is a 5-minute bus ride from the property. Bologna Cathedral and the University of Bologna are 20 minutes away on foot, while Bologna Central Station is a 30-minute walk or short bus ride away.

Four stars? No way!

Average, dated business hotel, just to far away fom the city centre (20 minutes walk? Running maybe!), in an unatrractive neighbourhood. Parking is very expensive, rates go up excessively with the lenght of your car (average sedan: € 23 per day)! Breakfast doesn't offer value for money. AC and ventilation were (centrally controled) turned off ("normal procedure in October"), so with an outside temperature of 23 degree C it was very warm in the room. Windows couldn't be opened because of severe traffic noise, night and day. No bar, pool or normal 4****-facilities whatsoever; WiFi-connection € 10 per hour! What looked like a good offer turned out to be to high a price for the quality offered.

Fairly good local restaurant "Fraiese", 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Nothing much, but the only one in the neighbourhood.

Disapointed

I weighed this hotel on the advertized airport shuttle filter, NO shuttle, they will call you a taxi. The wood trim is mostly plastic. Room was dark with a bank of flouresent bulbs over the bed. The advertized ".04KM" to city center" means to the old city walls, the center is another half mile. Litter blown street.Did not meet my expectation of four star Will never stay here again.

What a dream come true

Our stay at the Grand Hotel Elite was truly out of a book of dreams. The staff and all the amenities were top notch. The location was fantastic, the city was a delightful. One word that comes to mind is Thanks!

Ollaan tyytyväisiä

Huone siisti. Lakanat ja pyyhkeet vaihdettiin joka päivä. Sijainti vähän syrjäinen, mutta bussiliikenne keskustaan tiuha. Aamiaista emme hotellissa syöneet, oli meille turhan arvokas (12 e/henk.). Henkilökunta erittäin ystävällistä ja palvelualtista.

Bon hotel

Hotel situé à 20mn à pied du centre historique. 2lignes de bus à proximité de l hôtel desservent également le centre ville. Chambre spacieuse coté cour interieure, beaucoup plus calme que celles donnant sur la via Saffi; kitchenette avec possibilité de faire thé ou café; Salle de bain également spacieuse avec wc séparé. Bonne propreté de la chambre. Seuls petits bemols: la déco un peu vieillotte...et l accès wi-fi payant.. Personnel agréable Bon rapport qualité-prix
