NH Bologna Villanova

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We chose Villanova because of it offers easy access to the airport and has parking on site. When we arrived we were assigned a room on the second floor which turns out to be the 'smoking' floor so we requested to move elsewhere. Two hours later (we killed time in the adjacent shopping mall) we were assigned another room, which was much cleaner if slightly smaller. The safe didn't work in either of the rooms but staff did offer to let us keep our valuables in the hotel safe. The hotel pool is great and so are the related facilities which include two huge changing rooms, a pool area shower and massive numbers of fresh towels around the pool). Recommend requesting a non-smoking room directly (unless you are a smoker) because you might not be asked to state a preference at reception.

I stayed 3 times in this hotel, it is placed near the highway, there is a shopping center close to the highway Rooms are large, well furnished, clean and offer modern design International TV stations Perfect Hotel

The hotel is situated in the suburbs of Bologna but the city center is easily accessible, provided you travel by car. There are a few excellent "trattorias" in the neighborhood. The hotel is next to a shopping center. The rooms are well equipped and clean, breakfast is the best we have ever had in Italy. There is "lazy Sunday" policy, you can enjoy breakfast until noon and check out by three pm. The staff is so friendly and helpful with their recommendations on where to eat or what to see.

This is without a doubt one of the best value hotels in our eight weeks in Europe! Clean, spacious room, helpful staff, a wonderful breakfast with lots of variety (we generally found breakfasts in Italy disappointing due to the lack of bacon & eggs) and very inexpensive! The only problem is that it is slightly out of town & train stops weren't particularly close either. However taxi rides to & from the train station were very reasonable given the distance. Happy to say we had honest taxi drivers in Bologna.

I stayed there a night, in a double room with a fantastic and clean bathroom, TV and moquette. We asked to have a breakfast before the standard time and the staff was really kind and compliant. It was a short but comfortable visit.

NH brand is always an indicator of good hotel quality and this hotel is a perfect example. Very kind and supportive staff: we made a late arrival and the receptionist made everything possible to give us a fast and friendly service, he also made his best to solve an issue with my NH Rewards card; the issue, regarding personal data, was a bit long to solve and the gentleman helped us completing the check-in process and worked on problem solving for another half hour before calling me. The room was large even with the presence of an extra bed for my child. Breakfast, which I highly recommend, was abundant and full of local dishes and international plates. Parking in a closed garage was comfortable and pretty cheap (5€/day). In conclusion a pretty nice stay in line with my high expectations.

Stayed here with a great deal from last minute hotels. Beautiful hotel with all the amenities (pool etc). Breakfast was amazing and they kindly catered for gluten free patrons with a wonderful selection of products (crackers, rolls, muffins, cereal). Staff were helpful and accommodating - highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Even though the temperature outside was over 40 degrees the air con worked well. The huge bed was very comfortable. The staff were excellent especially at reception I think her name was Rosa. She was delightful. The restaurant exceeded our expectations and to have a menu that listed all the food intolerances just made it all so easy. The breakfast was excellent and they had a large gluten free selection. Overall our stay was 10/10.

stayed here because the flight from Florence, Italy, to Geneva was cancelled and Swiss airlines, put everyone on a bus to Bologna, where the next day had another flight for us going to Paris to Geneva That's how we ended up at this hotel. We had stayed in other hotel NH in Amsterdam the NH collection Hotel in Amsterdam which was Beautiful and Great. This Hotel was not as nice. sorry But the hotel, did give us dinner which was nice.

We loved the room. The huge bed, the spacious living area, the big and beautiful bathroom. The ac was perfect, the TV great. The location is right off the highway but so quiet, no distractions. Again, the only problem was this curious NH policy of closing the restaurant on weekends. We had to order out for dinner. There is an indoor spa with pool and gym.
