I always choose NH if i can where ever i go. You know what to expect and no surprises. Hotel is clean and nice room.Good location near to station and walking distance from center. Friendly staff and good breakfast.Nice and free coffee at reception, refreshment as well on arrival.

Everything was awesome. Location was ideal for the train station and the buses!! Very short walk to the center (and some fabulous sites and restaurants along the way). The staff is very kind and accommodating to your wishes and needs. The only downside is the lack of outlets in the bedroom but that was the very least of our worries. Breakfast is awesome but get there early because once something runs out, it runs out or it might be awhile until it’s refilled. Also, try the hot chocolate!!!

We stayed at the NH Bologna Dear La Gare on a short last minute trip for NYE and we were very happy with the location (15 mins walk from the Piazza Maggiore) with enough choice of shops, markets (right outside) and restaurants along the way. Hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating, we arrived at the hotel at 11:40pm so checked in quickly and went down for a quick drink before the bar closed. The rooms and bathroom facilities are spacious and very clean. We were lucky to get a room on the top (4th) floor so it was very quiet with a great view towards the central train station from the hotel. It was our first stay at the NH hotel franchise and we were impressed. Will definitely stay again during our European travels.

We stayed here for the hotel's access to the railway station on a day-tripping visit to the region. For that purpose the hotel is ideal, and it's location near one of the city's main arteries makes it easy to navigate Bologna at night. Breakfast buffet was good, with a full range of foods and many healthy/gluten-free options. Our room was very quiet and we slept well. I think older complaints about old bathrooms and weird decor have been addressed. Internet was fast. Service was friendly. One thing - the elevators are too few and too small, which caused backups even later in the evening.

The hotel is 10-minute walk from the historical centre of Bologna, just next to one of the old gates of the town (Porta Galliera) and 1-minute walk from the railways station, from which place the shuttle to the airport also leaves. Even though situated in a busy square (Piazza XX Settembre), it is quiet, as the traffic noise does not get through the solid windows. The reception desk is very helpful, the lady offered to print our boarding passes. The room is extremely clean (the hotel might consider not changing the bed sheets every day, it is in most cases a waste of energy). The breakfast buffet is rich (prosciutto crudo, assortment of salami, 4 types of croissants, cakes, 2 types of bread, water melon, pineapple, grapefruit, kiwi, oranges, apples, rich plain yogurt, fruit yogurt, different types of breads, seeds and dehydrated fruits etc.) and well-serviced.

Stayed here for a night when my flight was diverted from Pisa to Bologna. The biggest plus is the location - a short walk (7-8 mins) to the main bars and restaurants in the centre of Bologna and 2 mins from the train station which allowed me to get an early train onto Pisa the next morning. Given the situation, I couldn't have asked for anything better than this hotel.... - cheap room given the last minute booking (c. 100 euros) - efficient and friendly check-in/check out - clean and large room (I was upgraded to a superior) - old style decor in the room but comfortable bed - powerful shower (always important) - nice buffet breakfast

Very friendly, helpful and professional staff. Very nice breakfast buffet and dinner quality. Eventhough the hotel's location is in the city centre, sleep was very good and peaceful. Would definitely visit again.

They did everything they could to make our stay a happy one, installing a kettle in a standard room etc. Silvia on reception speaks excellent English and the maids were very friendly and helpful up on the non-smoking third floor. Breakfast is pricey but magnificent. The location is excellent for exploring all Bologna has to offer (a lot) and also amazing value rail trips to Parma and Ravenna from the station about 100 metres away

If you look at the description of the hotel in the English version of Trip Advisor, you will see that it says "free breakfast". It is not true. We paid 120 euros for a double room, but we did not receive any breakfast: we were to pay 30 euros. Not only did we not receive the breakfast: when we left the room to try and have breakfast, we could not go in again, as if we had already checked out, but it was 10 AM! So we had to ask the maid to let us in again and run away.

Very friendly staff, room has been clean and quite large but a little bit old. The check in had been very friendly but like all NH hotels I know a little bit awkward. It seemed that the staff had been new.
