In Bologna we stayed in the Sav Hotel a good mile from the main Bus and Train station. Although the hotel is a little bit out in the sticks the bus service is excellent with the bus stop about 100m away from the hotel. At the time we were there you caught a No. 25 bus which took you to the bus station and onwards into the town centre, for the return journey it is again a 25(Dozza) to get you back. However, this time you get the bus not at the station but on the opposite side of the road about 50m to the left of the station as you look at it. Rooms are modernistic with good showering facilities, the bed is comfortable and there is ample storage for your clothes. The safe is secure with a possible 9 digit code and you also have a fridge with mini bar. We did not get a lot of joy from the air conditioning but preferred to sleep with the window open. We only had breakfast in the hotel but lunch and dinner can be taken there. Breakfast was really good with a full English as well as a continental. The hotel has a large Jacuzzi on the 6th floor where there are fitness facilities, sun beds and tables. You can take your morning coffee here and smoke. Many people at this hotel gather outside the entrance to smoke despite there being a dedicated smoking room in the foyer on the way to the lifts. Here you have a TV and comfortable settees where you can watch the world cup. Staff here all speak English and are very helpful and the rooms are kept clean and tidy. Overall I would recommend this hotel despite its distance from the centre.

The Savhotel offers a great deal of value for guests. Prices are very competitive and a complementary breakfast is included. Rooms are spacious and very modern. They also boast a wonderful 'rain shower'. On the top floor, there is a Jacuzzi too which we found to be a lovely place to relax before we checked out, looking out over the beautiful Bologna skyline. The only area where the Savhotel fell below expectations was the Air Conditioning in the room. The day we had stayed at the Savhotel had been particularly warm and whilst we fully signed up for this by booking a holiday to Italy in June, we felt that the air conditioning could've been better. The thermostat has very limited controls. A helpful note is provided next to it which explains that this is done to conserve energy (admirably so) and that the temperature of the room would be about 22C in summer. Perfect. However, it wasn't. The temperature was 26C in the room and concerned about the impact this would have on sleep, we contacted the front desk who sent somebody up to look. After a bit of tinkering, we were told it was working fine and we should give it a chance to work. We did. After 7 hours overnight, the temperature had dropped from 26C to 24C. Certainly an improvement, but I would hardly call that 'working fine'. The hotel is wonderful otherwise, but the lack of control of an air conditioning system that was clearly not functioning as promised was disappointing - especially on such a warm day. It wasn't desperately uncomfortable, but we could have been more comfortable during our stay.

Lovely clean room, great staff and good varied breakfast. A great place to be situated and within a 10 min walk from city centre. And train station. We managed to visit Florence and Venice during our 5 day break.

The rooms which we had were furnished to a high standard and were spotlessly clean. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful as were the staff in the breakfast/dining room and bar. The welcome with a complimentary drink of one's own choosing from the bar was much appreciated. The breakfast, which was included in the room price, was plentiful. The hotel represented excellent value for the price paid

Great location, bus stop just around the corner. Very helpful and friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely food, something for everyone. Overall an excellent stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family!

I had a great stay at Sav hotel. Clean hotel and hotel staffs were helpful and polite. Was at bologna for a conference and the hotel is nearby the location of the conference. The hotel is also 15min bus ride from the city.

Good location close to a bus route straight into City in 15 minutes. Rooms are well equipped, AIR CONDITIONED, required in summer Bologna, and comfortable. Staff are excellent and speak good ENGLISH. I would recommend and stay again.

We stayed here for two nights and were very happy with our choice. Though clearly tailored to business travelers, we found the hotel had everything we could want, and the key amenities that were sometimes a challenge to find elsewhere during our Italy trip (reliable air conditioning, hot shower) were available with no problem here. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had an early morning food tour one day, and they kindly offered to prepare us boxed breakfasts as we would otherwise miss the hotel breakfast otherwise. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel staff are all very smartly dressed / presented. The check in staff always did one thing extra to help without it feeling forced and couldn’t have been better. Everything was spotless, cleaning staff were happy / friendly and the breakfast staff where incredibly well presented and happy. Good staff lead to a great business

Just returned from a 5 day stay at this fantastic hotel. So many good things to say about this hotel. We booked bed and breakfast but also a three course evening meal for one night,as we normally like to eat about town to get a variety of different food but after our first evening meal, it was so good and the choice fantastic we changed our booking to eat in the hotel every night. All the staff we met were lovely they really went out of their way to make us welcome. Our time flew by. Looking forward to visiting again. A little out of town but as we like walking not a problem for us.
