The hotel is very well located, in front of the city's train station. It is in the limit of the historical city center, so you can go every where by foot. There are a lot of restaurants, bars and supermarkets nearby. The rooms are simple, a bit old, but clean and functional. The mattress and pillows are great. The breakfast is a little expensive in my opinion. Overall a great and practical place to use as a base to explore the city and surroundings.

Conveniently located by train station. We had privilege room. Great bed, quality sheets. Lovely terrace with views over Boligna. Nespresso machines didn't work in either of our two rooms (so check them as soon as you arrive). Good hotel, but note 70s decor.....not changed since I was there in 2001. On the plus side, garden where you can sip a drink or two and breakfast terrace.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel. Friendly personnel at the reception. The hotel is located at the central station. I advise to book a room with view at the lovely garden of the hotel. You will not notice you are at the center of Bologna. Breakkfast was not so great. Scrambled egg floated in water. Not tasteful. Rooms were fine!

The location of this property is perfect. Right in the heart of the city and just opposite the main railway station. However it seems this hotel has not received any renovations for a very long time. This is a real pity and my expectations from a Mercure hotel are normally higher. Because of this the rooms don't give a very fresh and clean look and feel. This included the entire bathroom. Breakfast was basic and no proper italian espresso/cappucino was served. This came from a machine. In genera... Read more

Because Bologna is a relatively small city (it takes about 30 minutes to walk from one side to the other) the location of your hotel is perhaps less important than it can be in other cities. The Mercure is located opposite the central bus station, which is also the terminus for the airport bus. So, if youâ??re travelling from the airport or plan to catch a train, then its location is very convenient. We asked for a quiet room, and they put us on the 7th floor, which was fine. There was occa... Read more

Location is great, right across from Bologna central station but rooms are less than average. Room looked tired and couldn't get the temperature down with a few attempts on the control. Bathroom was oversize and looked kind of strange with the arrangement. And my room was not properly cleaned a couple of times, got hair in bathroom. As said in the title, I would only stay here for the location and nothing else.

I was there june 6 to 9. Breakfast was ok. They have a small garden near the bar where you can have a few things like salads and drinks. Hotel was ok, nothing special. There is a pizzerĂ­a nearby and a small shop where you can buy minor things. There is also a chemist nearby. It is a fair hotel but needs some remodeling.

We have stayed in Mercure hotels before and are familiar with their high standards. This one is no exception. Simple check in, great room with the bonus of a view of the garden...the oasis! Situated near the railway station and airport bus service there is no problem with access. Also close the centre it offers an ideal base for exploring this fascinating city. The breakfast is great and the staff helpful and friendly. Don't overlook this hotel as it has all the hallmarks of the high standards ... Read more

A nice hotel with a difficult location to park outside when arriving. A good Mercure standard hotel - staff really helpful - food very good - rooms good if a little worn. Good location once overcome finding the front door....... Nice place to stay.

The hotel was friendly and clean with enough comfort rooms. I had requested an upper floor room and they satisfied my request which i think that it's very important. The place is great (only few steps away from the central train station) and very near to the city center (almost 15 minutes walk distance ). The hotel needs a refurbishment with their furniture. Check in/Check out desk....Works amazing!

A great mid-level deal in the center of the city. Handy to everything, it's an excellent stay for the average traveler. Very clean rooms done in neo-modernist Euro finishes. Higher floors are hot in summer, though. Great lobby; good breakfast; chowhound restaurants just out the door in the university district. Parking for your tiny Italian rental car in the basement.

A few nights break in a clean and centrally located hotel that faces Central Station. The rooms was large as was the bed and it was kept immaculately clean but the room was in need of a refurbishment. The hotel lobby area was also clean and well air conditioned. Sadly, the same air conditioning does not apply to the bedrooms - although it worked, its impact was negligible, which meant 4 nights poor sleep in very hot and humid conditions. I did ask for a fan but none were available. Breakfast ... Read more

perfect location, selected due to proximity of railway station and town centre, everything walkable, room requested overlooking main street was clean and well maintained, a little small but met all needs. the air conditioning struggled due in part to heat wave of 39 degrees. Rooms to rear were certainly quieter but as stated we wanted to have a 'busy' view and we were not disappointed. Breakfast a little basic but filled the need

Nice hotel, great staff (specially the guy in the bar). You have a kind of "backyard" that's not expected to be found in a hotel right in front a central train station. Try having a expresso or a glass of wine in in this area....

Well located just in front of the train station. The hotel is really outdated and need some renovation but it is well maintained. From Airport of Bologna, you can take the AeroBus, a shuttle that you can reach at the airport, tickets are available from a machine located near the bus station.

Extremely well located across from the station and a short walk to the centre of town. The staff were vey helpful. The hotel clearly takes plenty of business traffic so the free wi-fi was very good indeed. Breakfast was also plentiful and good quality.

It is right across the train station, and the bus stop coming from the airport, so location is excellent. The hotel is calm, nice atmosphere. The rooms are a bit small and the curtains and carpets need to go...bathroom is good and spatious but needs some little tile refurbishment. More toiletries, ask the reception. No idea about the bar, but it seemed nice. Quick check in and out. Recommend for short stays. Buses in front and around the corner, to the right to go to the center.

The location was good for the station and about a 15 minute walk to the historical centre. The rooms were good although the bath/shower was very small and required some clever manouvering to get in. There was a nice garden behind the hotel and the public areas were spacious and clean. The breakfast area was comfortable and the food good Overall this was a decent choice although the hotel had a slighly dated feeling and check on was not the most efficient...it still used metal keys which were han...

Nice location, nice bar, good breakfast and on the other side of the street is the train station so easy to reach as well by public transport. I booked a privilege room which usually at Mercure is spacious and nice, however this one was very small and the only difference with the normal rooms was that the mini bar filled with water and some soft drinks were free every day.

This Mercure is an older hotel, but not in charming ways. The room decor and overall feel of the place is a bit stale. Still, the staff were friendly and helpful and everything clean, so it wasn't a bad choice. As a tourist, I wish I'd chosen a hotel in the historic district. The Mercure is an easy 15-minute walk from all the sights, but the area in between the two was full of graffiti and felt slightly unsafe after dark.

Not quite sure what people expect from this hotel. Service was great, location was excellent. If you need something super modern, then this will not be your choice. Pluses: Across from the airport bus and the train station. Super helpful staff. Big rooms (contrary to what others say). Reasonable walk to the center of the old city. Minuses: weird tub and shower, strange and inconvenient internet log in -- plus not very strong in the room. Overall, I would stay here again in a heartbeat u... Read more

Stayed here because I was looking for somewhere close to the station and it didn't disappoint, as it's right across the street! Was also handy to the hop-on hop-off bus, which starts its tour around Bologna from here. My single room was small, but adequate for my purposes. It had a hot water jug with coffee and tea sachets, something I didn't experience a lot in Italy. Although it didn't have an iron and board it had an ironing room on the 5th floor from memory. I was impressed with breakfast, ... Read more

Old building , need renovation. Especially lifts. Crowded sidewalk (mostly by homeless') Offish staff (except chambermaids) Every visitor is potential thief - look at bottle opener "in chains" on the picture :-))) Poor breakfast (as almost always in Italy) Quite expensive parking (other company) and bar Very good location for visiting Bologna on foot.

Like most old hotels, room sizes within a category can vary quite significantly and only those familiar with the hotels, can book the larger rooms for the same cost as the smaller. The cleaner knows better than management. The first room offered us on the requested upper floor overlooking Central Station and the city beyond complete with Basilica, was tiny. Down the corridor was a room in the same category twice the size with a large separate windowed bathroom plus an entry area. The view teemin... Read more

Very conveniently situated opposite the main rail terminal, which was good for excursions to other towns, such as Ravenna. Very pleasant, helpful staff and a good sized room with ample bath/shower facilities and pace to stow clothing and luggage.

A chain hotel with basic facilities. The room is of reasonable size considering the price. It is very close to the train station. Just a few minutes' walk. A small local shopping centre is nearby with some food stalls. Hotel service was satisfactory. A fair choice for a short stay.
