Location was great and the staff were very helpful.

The room came with a small balcony that made breakfast a little special. On checkout day the staff took care of our luggage until we came back 4 hours later. Thank you.

Great location, professional staff, Clean rooms. An easy walk to the center of town

Stayed here before departing for LA -- great location that is convenient to the train station and the best comfortable rooms.

This hotel met my expectations. I was not expecting a Marriott with down comforters and Aveda products in the bathroom. I think this is a very typical 3 star European hotel, and I thought it was nice. The water pressure in the shower is not great, but it was not bothersome. As far as convenience, it was very convenient--and that's what I love. Seriously, DIRECTLY across the train station. We woke up, and took a day trip to Venice by train. While exploring Bologna, it is a short walk to the Fountain of Neptune, the Towers, and the Basilica San Petronio.

Staff was wonderful, courteous and very helpful. Location was fantastic, especially after coming off the train late each day. Easy to get to all the places in Bologna. the room was big, very clean, bathroon was excellent as well. The bed was extra firm, but I didn't go there to sleep alot. The morning breakfast was a great value as well. Will stay there agin on my next visit to Bologna.

I felt good in this hotel beacuse it was very confortable and the staff was polite. Excellent location.

Extremely convenient - across street from Stazione Centrale. Room was very small by US standards but very clean. Taxi to the airport was there within 5 min of front desk calling them.

Location next to the ferrovia was helpful. Great (!) gelatto stand on the corner. Room was clean and comfortable. The large garden courtyard was a nice surprise--great for getting away from the busy front street.

This hotel is very conveniently located immediately across from the Bologna Centrale train station. A 4 star property, it was exceptionally clean and appears to have been recently re-done. The rooms were quiet and decently sized with comfortable beds,linens and pillows, safe, minibar, free bottled water and free wireless internet. The individually controlled HVAC system worked well (it was in the mid 80s) and was quiet. Old fashioned room keys that were left at the front desk and provided without ID gave us some concern about security. Rooms to the rear overlooked a lovely park-like courtyard. Rooms to the front showed an uninteresting city vista The included breakfast consisted of a wide assortment of both European and American hot and cold items. A coffee machine made individual servings of cappuccino, latte, espresso, and Caffe American. The menu and breads and pastries were the same each day, however. This hotel caters mostly to business travelers and did not have a concierge desk. However, the front desk staff spoke excellent English and were happy to answer questions, give suggestions and help with arrangements. A 24hr city bus pass was included. All in all we felt this was equal to a 5 star hotel and highly recommend it. As a tourist destination, Bologna doesn't offer much. There's the usual Cathedral, Church buildings and shopping areas. I had hoped to visit Europe's oldest Medical School and University, established in the 9th century, but there were no tourist accessible venues other than old, dusty zoology museums. We could not find a tourist information office and info at the hotel was limited to a few restaurants. If you;re just touring, don't spend more than a day here.

Room was small and plain but was clean, comfortable and quiet.

Close to everything

The good: great location, excellent breakfast, friendly staff, spotless bathroom; the could be better: the bed was old, uneven and needed to be replaced; I was in a room facing the train station and morning sun - it never got completely dark. The room needs blackout drapes. I would stay here again but ask for a room on the back side of the building.

Arriving at the train station I was glad the hotel was across the street! It is literally right around the corner from shops and a brief walk to historical sites. The staff was helpful and the room was fine. As a student here in Italy I do not have a lot of money. This was a much needed break from school and staying in a hotel with a bath tub was a real treat! I have been here 3 months and have soaked in a tub 2 other times. Overall my experience at the hotel was great.

Hotel is steps from train station. When traveling alone and with heavy luggage this is a great bet. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Style of room is a bit outdated and the "king-size" bed was really two twin beds pushed together which was quite odd. Although some staff of the hotel spoke English, I called the "information" line from my room and could not get any information in English. This is not meant to seem "all about being American", it just would have been nice to be directed to someone who could help me. Price seemed a bit high compared to friends who were also staying in Bologna but who booked from the EU. All-in-all the location made up for the few oddities.

We were carrying a fair amount of luggage and traveling by train, so the Mercure was perfect for us - it's right there when you walk out of the train station. It's a reasonable walk to the city centre (10 mins, maybe), and for a European hotel, it was spacious and a nice surprise.

Solid business hotel, perfect location. Negative - there was a huge light just outside of my room.

It was very close to the train station. Very friendly staff. I would recommend the hotel if you want to be close to public transportation!
