OVER ALL: 3/5 For sure it's not a 4 star Hotel. It's a clean, decent 3 star Hotel. A Value for Money solution, if you decide not to stay at the Old City. We enjoyed our stay. LOCATION: 3/5 +30 minutes walking distance from Piazza Maggiore, 10-12 minuts from Bologna Centrale, the Main Railway Station. The neighbourhood is nice, with block of flats, a small China Town with small shops and polite people around. It's not a dangerous area, seems ok for families and couples. TRANSPORTATION: 4/5 The Bus Station is just in front of the Hotel. You catch Bus Numero 25 and you either go to Bologna Centrale or Rizzoli - Bologna Old Town. Pay attention on Weekends the bus route changes a little bit, but still you easily go to the Old Town. TICKET PRICE: 1.5 euro - ask for change at the reception, they only accept coins in the bus. ROOM: 3/5 The double room is an average one.The bed is the best of it, we had a comfortable, relaxed sleep. The decoration reminds me of last decades, but it's ok, no problem. The Bathroom is big - designed to accommodate people with physical disabilities. Unfortunately the whole 3 days of our stay, there was always a bad annoying smell coming from the toilet.... CLEANING: 5/5. Perfect! The cleaning ladys are doing a great job! Sheets changed every day. RECEPTION: 4/5 Polite and helpful BREAKFAST: 3/5 Bologna is a Food Paradise. You dont need a breakfast, you just enjoy the local food, while walking around the town. But, still if you want it, the hotel offers a rich decent breakfast - no local goodies included, apart from mortadella, a bolognese colour is needed to take it to the next level.
We were in this hotel only for a night! We chose this hotel as it was near the airport, near the city centre and had free parking. Reception was ok, but the hotel was being remodeled and no one informed us that the windows would be blocked by construction scaffolding! The curtains had to be closed everytime! The size of the room was good, it had two queen beds that were confortable and nice bathroom! It could be better cleaned and there were some holes in the linnens and curtains! Air condicioning did not work which was bad, the room was too hot! Needs maintenance inside also! The breakfast was good for the price of the stay! After the contruction alterations finish, I would come Back!
We got married on the 19th April and went to Italy for a few days after. As it was our little honeymoon we wanted to book somewhere nice so when we saw this hotel was a 4 star and offered suites with balcony’s we booked it (and paid upfront, which is kind of the norm now anyway) We just got back on Thursday after staying two nights and oh god, what a nightmare. Seriously, the place is like a building site. We arrived and instantly saw the scaffolding around the whole side of the hotel (automatic red flags) and when we went to our ‘suite’ we pulled open the curtains and it was, quite literally, a building site (see pics). The balcony was off limits due to this so even though we paid extra for the suite and use of a balcony it was all for nothing. It didn’t have it advertised anywhere on their website- So they were, and still are, happy to take money off people for services that they can’t provide. Just awful. If we hadn’t of already paid, and could find another hotel, we would have been out of there. We were woken up at 8.30am (Italy time) by drilling, hammering and the glass doors directly beside the bed being power washed. While workers were mere feet away from our room outside. So romantic for a honeymoon.. We just want to warn anyone else who is thinking of or about to book here to think twice before you do, or maybe call them first and ask directly if there is still construction work underway. Even without the construction work it’s a pretty poor hotel in our opinion. Ripped sheets on bed, they don’t have a restaurant for dinner or anything, no bar.. How it’s 4-star is a mystery. We don’t want anyone else being as disappointed as we were.
Myself and my wife went on honeymoon here on the 24th of April. All the photos looked great online and we booked (and paid extra for) a suite so we would have use of a balcony. Not much I could fault until I got there. The whole hotel was surrounded in scaffolding. Nothing online to state that there were repairs going on. Nothing on their social media or anything. I even emailed a few days before to confirm the booking and nothing was said about repairs. When we got there and saw what was happening, we were in complete shock. Apparently there was emergency repairs going on. The management should have informed the guests of this as soon as they heard. It is completely unacceptable. I paid extra to have a suite with a balcony. When we got to our room, our balcony was a building site. There was a note on the door to say not to go out onto the balcony. We went to reception to ask to change rooms and were told no, there were no other rooms. That being said, the gentleman on the reception when we got there was very apologetic and was really helpful to show us where to go , I would commend him for his hospitality. A pleasure to deal with as it wasn’t his fault but management should have informed incoming guests of the works going on. All in all, I would not recommend this hotel for a “nice” getaway. If you do wish to book this hotel, ring/email prior to booking and ask if there is any/upcoming construction work going to happen on the property so you aren’t caught out like we were.
One night there Rooms: - we got an upgrade to a nicer room, the bed was literally the biggest bed i have ever seen. - rooms are cosy and clean - bathroom is clean - could be slightly better and nicer decorated (empty walls) Location : -A bit far from the center. You can walk ( which we did ~30 min) or take a bus - free parking Breakfast - very nice , rich and lots of choice both salty and sweet
I chose this hotel as I needed parking for my hire car and parking at hotels in Bologna is not easy. On arrival the allocated parking spaces were all full. So I parked adjacent in a spot not belonging to the hotel. It’s in a large block occupying the last section of an 8 storey apartment block. It will never win any prizes for beauty or views. It’s frankly ugly. Check I was efficient and easy. It’s a small area with some seating and a bar, although I never saw anyone using it. My room on the third floor was reached by lifts or stairs. High ceiling, felt dark and dingy but you needed to get the blinds open. Comfortable bed made up daily. Wardrobe with safe. Minibar and air conditioning. Spotlessly clean. Bathroom was functional with a heated rail, hair dryer and power socket. Hot water and a decent shower. The room was noisy. From street traffic coming from the main road and from adjacent apartment blocks. ( not the hotel, do ensure you have a room as far from the street as possible on one of the building corners to minimise noise). You are also just off the flight path in and out of the airport so there is some aircraft noise too. Breakfast was included and served on a ground floor room. Can get very busy and congested. A decent range of cereal, fruit, bread, cold meats and cheese, pastries and cake. Some hot items in self serve dishes and boiled eggs. Coffee is from a machine. Lots of choice but all of it bland and the room smelled of cooking. Hotel is in a residential area with a few shop around and a supermarket PAM a ten minute walk away. You can walk into central Bologna in around 20 minutes at a brisk pace or take a bus from outside. The place is nothing special and I’d look for an alternative for a return visit
The hotel is far from everything, it takes half an hour walking to the center of Bologna. Our room was small, the bed was not comfortable and the heating could not be regulated and through the window it was very cold. They did not prepare the room on time and the cleanliness was not what is expected in this category. Breakfast, poor. Also, if your flight leaves early, do not expect even a sad sandwich.
Room was decent but very little scenery. In fact, the area left you with much to be desired. However, the room was very good and the massive bed was awesome. Good buffet breakfast and a short was to the train station.
Nice hotel, middle standard, big rooms and extremely big beds for 2, 3, 4, 5 or even 6 persons. We couldn’t believe. It is wider then longer... Close to the business area of the city. Hot water in bathroom, clean bath and room. It is not state of the art but you can survive a few nights...
A nice well kept hotel only 5-10 minutes from the airport. Costing 17 euros by white cab. About 15-20 minute walk into Bolognas centre. The staff were very helpful and accommodating finding out train times and prices for us. Rooms are small but well kept and breakfast was as expected a selection of meats,cheese, pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt etc, buffet style. We enjoyed our stay and would use again.
