Just returned from a four night stay in Bologna with my wife at the Grand Hotel Elite, We found the hotel to be. very clean, the staff made us feel welcome and were always attentive and happy to help. Although our room was a little dated it was very comfortable clean, lovely and warm and generous in size. The breakfast was good and the couple of times we ate in the restaurant found the service and food good.

The first impression for everything is crucial and as regards this hotel was very disappointing.Since we arrived rather early (about 10.00 a.m) we asked one receptionist if we can leave our luggage in a store room till check in time (15.00 p.m).His behavior was a bit arrogant, he told us to wait in the lobbyl because he had to serve other clients.So, we were waiting for almost 30 mins, without noone telling anything to us and with no sign of activity in reception too.Finally, a female receptioni...

About 20 minutes walking to the city center, or 5 bus stops, bus station right near the hotel ( bus 13, or 19). There is nothing chic or traditional with the rooms, just outdated furniture. The room was large and clean, but the heating system was making a terrible noise. I had a room facing the main street and the sound insulation was not good at all, it seemed like buses were running through my room. Very disappointing staff, I asked them some information about getting down-town and the recepti... Read more

This hotel is very very dated. Not a four star hotel at all. The hotel itself is clean and warm which is all one really needs and breakfast is fine. Dinner however is appalling. You cannot take outside food into the room unless you pay a fee for "extra cleaning". The wifi in room is fine. My toilet did not always want to flush, I had to take the lid off the cistern to flush it on most occasions. One morning I did not have hot water. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. A... Read more

An old style motoring hotel from the days of porters and martini cocktails. Clearly seen better days but it was comfortable and spacious and although dated, everything worked. The staff were courteous and the garage arrangements superb for us with a lift into the hotel from the basement garage. We has a valuable car load we needed secure. We were an easy walk into the medieval piazzas and we had breakfast ( which was fair) and superb dinner in the restaurant on both nights which was inexpensive.... Read more

Driving south through Europe and staying at ibis budget hotels it was a pleasant change to find this hotel not only was it cheaper it was 100% better.The room on the seventh floor was large and comfortable with a walkin wardrobe and large bathroom.The restaurant and bar is well appointed and very reasonably priced.Would not hesitate to stay here again

i would recommend the hotel to people who are not afraid of cold room or noisy conditioner in winter. the location (20 minutes on foot fron the center) and the price were adequate. the bus stop is right here
