Recent guest reviews

Even though the hotel is pretty old, it benefits the best location in the city, comfortable parking lot

The hotel exceeded my expectations. Exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated with a friendly staff.

This is a very low class hotel in all aspects. Rooms and furniture are poor and substandard in its substance and form, ornate is low standard, bath is minus than acceptable, air conditioning noisy and useless all of that bearing in mind the money you pay which is not few. Should this hotel would be located anywhere else, I would had complaint or leave. Nevertheless, the location is outstanding, unbeatable. That's the single and only asset of this hotel, jointly with the friendly attitude of the personnel. If you stay for one nights no need to visit the core historic center of Bologna, chose the BW, if not, find something better, will not be a hard work.

You can't go wrong with this hotel. The beds are comfortable and it's the best access to the city center. A lot of other travelers stay here and you're sure to meet friendly people and welcoming staff. I wouldn't come to Bologna and stay any where else. This was my second stay at this hotel.

Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. There isn't a better location for visiting central Bologna. Many tourists also seem to frequent this hotel and it's easy to make friendly conversation on the second floor bar. The terrace on the second floor has a phenomnal view of the leaning tower of Bologna and cannot be over-sold in terms of being possibly the best location in the city for an appertivo. If you're looking for convience, professionalism, and comfort, you can't go wrong here. A/C worked well and room was cold when I liked.

I was apprehensive to stay in a hotel as a single female however I felt completely comfortable and safe at this Best Western. I have never been to Bologna and intended to meet friends who live there. I quickly realized that I was in a great location and well connected to my local friends' home and all of the major attractions. I was most impressed with the friendly & competent staff and the buffet breakfast where they served non dairy and non wheat products & the amazing view from my little balcony.. I did not even have to ask for soy milk at breakfast-it was already out. I felt comfortable leaving my luggage at the hotel at no extra cost after I checked out while I toured the city before my train left. Would definitely return there.
