Meeting Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I Stayed here for a week during the trade show in Bologna had taken up most of the hotels. Upon arriving at the hotel as mentioned there is a block of flats that is under renovation. Not particularly the hotels fault just the area needs doing up. I was able to get into the room slightly earlier than the checkin time as i had arrived early to give my previous hotel time to clean the room for their next guests and i don't mind hanging around as gives me a chance to scope out the area. almost directly out the front of the hotel on the other side of the road is a small shop that sells most essentials. Further up in Calderara is a Coop. The hotel staff are all very welcoming and after my checkin were welcoming by name so that was a nice touch. The room was very spacious and clean. Wifi was good and i have no complaints about the restaurant. Breakfast i would personally avoid the cereal as it tasted like they had been in there a while. If you don't have a car then you will feel stranded. There is a bus (91) that runs past the hotel but its usually very busy and does not run late into the night so most of your journeys will require a taxi and its not particularly cheap neither. The reason why is when you call a taxi in Italy they start the meter from wherever they are so most taxi that arrive to the hotel will already have 8 euros on the meter. So for me, Yes as previous comments suggest the hotel does need bringing upto standards but renovations cost money and with the majority of tourists staying in Bologna then there is not much money coming in. But i enjoyed my stay here it could have been a lot worse but pleasantly surprised i guess would sum it up.

Had one night booked for my family in August. I booked this because the hotels photos looked ok. We arrived in the hotel car park and couldn't believe our eyes. The hotel was tagged onto a derelict block of flats and we didn't feel safe here at all. We decided not to go in and and booked another hotel elsewhere where we felt safe. I can't comment on the interior but the exterior was like extremely disappointing and not inviting at all!

We stayed our first night in Italy when it was tremendously hot. The air conditioning in one of the rooms simply did not work. We were 5 people and had three rooms. We complained to reception and they sent a technician straight away - no change. We complained again and they found another room for us, which had been recently refurbished. The hotel is on one side of a hideous cement block building which looks like something our of a stalag movie! But it was cheap, near the airport and convenient for our flights in and out.

Poor old 60's hotel on an industrial estate. It was near the airport the only plus. Air conditioning did not work, food poor. It was a disaster and not recommended. You could here the airport noise. Thank goodness we only had one night here. Never ever stay here

This hotel was a disaster. We made a reservation just because it was near airport and apparently had a "transportation to airport". FALSE! The lady in the reception was very unsympathetic. Bad manners all the way. When we tried to book a taxi for the next day to the airport, they said it had an extra cost!!! So we told them it was supposed to be free and they said that if you scroll down in the page, in very little tiny letters say "extra cost". So yes, they have transportation to the airport but you have to pay 17€(!!!) for 4 km. 17€ !!! Same money that from hotel to downtown Bolonia. The hotel is a little bit old, but room was nice. So, IT IS NOT WORTHY TO STAY IN THIS HOTEL. Much better go to a hotel in downtown with a real free transportation service. Bad experience.

The rooms are very spacious, very well appointed and clean, The location is unfortunate, the view from your balcony is a sort of refinery while the rear of the hotel consists of a derelict apartment block under renovation. The restaurant adjacent to the hotel is under a separate management and is awful, a massive insult to the famous Bologna gastronomic reputation, is run in a very unprofessional manner by people who should not be in the restaurant trade.

The hotel is a work in progress. Literally. Half the building is a construction site. Also the rooms photographed are not representative of all their rooms. The room we stayed in looked more like something you would expect in a 2 star hotel with one fold up bed that if you should sit up you'd bang your head. We were above the entrance and their doors were in desperate need of some oil, so that was an unwelcome addition. Finally if you don't have a car forget staying here the bus service isn't good at all

First arrived to the room.. very disappointed, the pics on not the same at all, i asked for a non smoking room ( on the door was the sign of No Smoking Room) but it was infected with the unpleasant smell, i had to spray all my deodorant in three nights. Breakfast rich and varied, dinner if they increase the in portions. Around 20 mins from the Bologna Centrale 20 euros by Taxi. Very kind and helpful staff... unfortunately that does not help the condition of the rooms...

Stayed 2 nights!! Apart from Hotel looking very creepy and having and old-old elevator (from 3 only one was working), the smell in hotel was absolutely horrible. In room - even more. Like smoke would go in every wall in the building and stay there. Both nights I kept my window all opened together with the balcony door. Btw, wifi worked very bad as well. Only more or less positive thing was breakfast.

We had a good stay at Meeting Hotel. The room was good, the breakfast very good and the New Year's eve program at the restaurant was very entertaining. The hotel is close to the airport and the connection to the city center and the central station is very good by bus 91 (the station is just in front of the hotel). Very good value for money.
