NH Bologna Villanova

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good location outside the centre. Close from airport and big shopping mall. Nothing else at food distance. Room a little bit noisy, restaurant and breakfast is ok. The pool is perfect to relax and of day. Only bad point is the bar. A stayed for more than 1h and nobody took my order. Still the bar was open someone was served before me.The waiter came to clean but totally ignored me: not a good customer service.

It was a short 2 night stay and enjoyed the usual NH standards. Hotel is just a short drive outside of the city and close enough to Bologna airport (if you have a car). Service was great, breakfast was just as good. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay.

This NH hotel is located a few miles from the city centre in the suburb of Villanova. It's quite a nice, semi-rural location with scenic views to the front of the hotel. Staff were very good, efficient and friendly, with English spoken if your Italian isn't great! We had a standard room which was a good size, air-conditioned and in good decorative order, nice big comfortable bed, good sized bathroom with bath & shower. Large flat-screen tv. Swimming pool and mini-gym in the basement. A continental breakfast buffet was included and of a good standard, with plenty of choices and available from 7-10 and 7-12 on Sunday if you fancy a lie-in. There's a shopping centre next to the hotel with a big supermarket (Ipercoop), and plenty of other stores, plus food court, and Macdonalds/Burger King for fast food fans. The only downside to this hotel was it's location if you don't drive- the nearest public transport is the 89 & 99 bus, which runs every 1/2hr on weekdays and every hour on Sundays, and is about a mile walk from the hotel. Not a difficult walk but in the Italian sun it was pretty tiring! Otherwise if you haven't come by car and you don't fancy the bus a taxi into town is about 15 Euros, 22-25 Euros to the Airport (only 10-15 minutes drive in light traffic). Other that the transport links it's a very good hotel and recommended.

This is a renovated, very clean, fresh hotel with an excellent breakfast. The wifi is very good and it has free parking. We had a room on the top floor which had a nice view. The only downside is that the air conditioning is a little weak. Good location and try the Pizzeria Ristorante il Casale just a few kilometers away.

This hotel was really lovely on the inside, great breakfast (though quite continental) and a lovely bar too. Room was great, big TV and comfortable bed. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful, in particular a man called Michele, who on one night really went out of his way in helping us to book a table in a restaurant. As we spoke little Italian and lots of places were closed over the Easter, this was much appreciated so we did not turn up somewhere that was closed (despite saying open on Tripadvisor!) The main issue we had was the restaurant here being closed. We booked over Easter weekend which was understandable, but nevertheless, it would have been nice on our first night to have relaxed a little more and stayed there for a meal. The location is a little way out of town. You can walk it if you are fit, but a taxi/bus is the ideal transportation as a taxi only takes about 15 minutes. However, this was quite nice as we explored areas that we perhaps would not have if we had been right in the centre. The surroundings are easy to navigate on foot and some really beautiful, green sights. Also a shopping centre and supermarket very close by.

Nice choise near the citi Publicbus can take you to the citi Staff takes care of you with infos checkin and out is easy and fast Breakfast was good too all one needs Lovely place to be all as promised will stay there again

Wonderfoul hotel 5 stars de luxe. I want return in this hotel in other year if possible. Very near higway and airport. Tornerò presto spero a essere ospite di questo hotel di prestigio. Vicino all'autostrada e all'aereoporto

the hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. the location is in the middle of nowhere, you need a taxi to get to anything, so i would only book if you need to be in that area for business. like most modern business class hotels in europe, this place has zero character or atmosphere, its just a clean room to sleep in at the end of a hard day of business. if you want to be near restaurants or site seeing this is not the place to be.

Very nice clean comfortable modern hotel with good range of services, suitable for short stay business travelers. Likes: friendly staff, privacy and well proportioned rooms, good wifi coverage and food sandwiches and salads available beside reception 24hrs a day. Also liked the breakfast bar which had a very good choice of food and the nearby shopping centre. Disliked two alarm calls I didn't receive.

Of our entire 2-week immersion in the magnificent Italian experience, this was by far the best, cleanest, well-serviced and luxurious hotel. The theme was 'uncompromising professionalism' which was evident. We had convenient, free-of-charge carparking, fresh breakfast and easy, efficient check-out procedures. The pleasant staff were extremely helpful as well. The Hotel is conveniently located right next to (but far enough away) a large local shopping centre open until 8pm nightly which will meet all the convenience needs of guests. My wife and I will definitely go back when we're next in Bologna. Thank you so much.
