Hotel Maggiore Bologna

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Listed as a. 3 star, i guess because the don’t have a restaurant on site, however it is a very clean welcoming hotel, the staff are very accommodating, and it is a very reasonable walk to the centre of Bologna. That is something to keep in mind so you can walk off the stupendous meals you likely will have. Even though-we did not book a room with breakfast deal, the hotel threw it in for the duration of our stay. I will definitely come back if in Bologna.

Absolutely no complaints about this hotel! The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the room was very clean, comfortable, well appointed and inviting. The hotel is definitely not in a scenic part of town, but it's super-convenient to the airport (important for our stay) and not a long drive at all to the historic center. Nice lobby, light appetizers... all in all higher quality and a better experience than I expected based on other reviews.

HM hosted us again. This time we are stayed a family of 4, 2 seperate double rooms. Satisfactory, clean and very polite/friendly staff... Good and tasty breakfast with a very reasonable price. What else could it be said after two years.. "hope to stay again"

We stayed here after arriving at Bologna Airport late in the evening. The hotel is close to the airport and easy to find with the bus (€6) but would probably pick the car up next time immediately upon arrival. The room was clean and comfortable but the icing on the cake was the breakfast (only €5). Loved the fresh fruit juicer! We would stay here again.

A bit out of town. Make sure you get a room at the back of the hotel. The road at the front is very busy and noisy and you will be constantly disturbed. Also constant disturbance from loud ambulances making frequent trips to the nearby hospital. Get down to breakfast early as they run out of food later on and don't be surprised if they ask you to leave your room before breakfast is even finished so that they can clean it. Virtually no outside space. In conclusion, good for a business stopover if you get a room at the back but not for longer.

When people stay in Bologna they like to stay very central, which is fine, but for a more economic stay, 10mins by bus from Piazza Maggiore and only 10mins by taxi from the airport, plus its own car parking, excellent, helpful staff and even free bike use if you need it, Hotel Maggiore is quite a find. Nice, balcony rooms, excellent breakfast at only €5, cracking service with late bar, front desk selling bus tickets, event tickets etc and great advice for getting around. Check it out when choosing your Bologna hotel.

Good price and the room very comfortable. The bathroom is very modern. The air conditioner of my room never worked and I reported it. The room has a mini refrigerator with drinks and chips. The hotel is very near to the bus station Ospedale Maggiore and is just 10 minutes by bus to the center of Bologna. You can go to Venice by Train from Bologna (2 hrs). The hotel offer free Wifi. The breakfast was not bad.

Nice and tidy with comfortable beds and complementary chocolates, Hotel Maggiore is a really nice place to stay while in Bologna. It is not exactly in the city center but it has a convenient location if you need to catch an early flight as it is a couple of km away from the airport and it is close to the shuttle that takes you to the airport. The staff was very nice and helpful and made us feel as if we had been there before. Although I have stayed only one night I can say I liked it and would recommend it.

It´s a great hotel, the rooms are very nice, and every room is other, our room was very modern with balcony and bathroom, the bathroom was small but it has everything. On the wall is the title Good Night in many languages. In the basement is room when is serve the breakfast, on breakfast is serve big sortiment of food and drinks. Room of my friends was in vintage style. Very kind personal, you can vote who is the best from personal.

Spent a week here while on a business trip in the area. It was nice to have parking on location. There is also a nice little sitting area outside to relax after work or on the weekend. The staff is very friendly and was very helpful with any questions that you may have. Breakfast was good with a nice selection. Plenty of seating and good service. Only downside is the location to the main road and hospital. In the spring, the air conditioning is not turned on yet to cool the room. If you need to open the window, it is very noisy with the traffic and sirens running to early morning. The beds were normal for European beds and the room was well equipped with anything you may need. I would consider staying here again but it will depend on the time of the year and if I can keep the windows closed.
