This was a pretty decent hotel. Didn't use the restaurant, but was very happy that the gym was in good shape. The inside looks a little 70's as most people said, but I didn't mind as long as everything was functional.

A slightly dated (in style and looks) but clean and welcoming hotel. Rooms are fairly spacious and comfortable. The staff is friendly, welcoming and speak English - some more than others but always trying and succeeding in communicating with guests. The hotel is located on a busy street in walking distance from the historic city center. There is no free parking. The wifi works reasonable well and has in-room coverage at least on the lower floors. The hotel is 5 minutes drive from the Airport a... Read more

A large old fashioned Grand hotel about 15 minutes walk to the city centre. Room comfortable and well equipped (despite the many vaguely threatening notices about not bringing take aways or pizzas back to the hotel). Service impecable and a nice breakfast included into my room rate. Price more than competative - even after I added ?12 to leave my car in the swcure underground carpark. All in all a very enjoyable stay - and very definitely a bargain .

We found the hotel Elite, clean and comfortable. The staff were professional and in the main friendly but not overly welcoming. The room (107) was of good size and although at the front of the hotel we weren't bothered by road noise. What was a problem was the room above which was probably a store-room or rest-room for the staff. At 0630 every morning the noises would start, as the floors are wooden there wasn't even carpet to muffle the footsteps or the noise of the trollies or cleaning carts b... Read more

The hotel interior is very nice and clean, however the layout is odd, and styling is straight from the 70s. The staff are very friendly, helpful and polite, our Baggage was taken to our room on arrival, commensurate with a 4 star standard. I would like to make a special point of mentioning the cleaners, our room was always immaculate when we returned, clean towels , soap, not a spec of dirt anywhere?????. It is located about 25 mins from the old city, our room faced a main road and the view... Read more

More negative than positive. Lobby area as nice as in photos but not so much elsewhere. First hotel employee we came into contact with was rude. Parking underneath tight/confusing in large part due to hotel employees rudeness. Elevator access was nice. Bedding lumpy, wifi slow. Balcony was difficult to access because the doors interfered with one another. Great location and proximity to town/transit. Opted out of the $9 for breakfast per person, and walked a few doors up the road to a breakfast... Read more

This hotel is just outside the centre of Bologna, the room was spacious, we had three good sized beds that were all comfortable. There was two wardrobes and lots of storage. A fridge, and a bathroom with a good sized shower. My only downside was the hotel restaurant - which was fine for breakfast - which was very good, but do not bother for an evening meal. We waited ages, and one meal had to be sent back. The food was overpriced and cold. There are plenty of cheaper alternatives, and I would... Read more

Decent, clean hotel, though very dated and sombre decor throughout (chocolate-coloured walls, floor, bedlinen, furniture). Staff the main redeeming feature as they were professional and helpful and you can walk into the city in 30 mins. For a hotel which claims to be five star, there isn't a kettle in your room or even a bottle of water. Breakfast wasn't the best and very little healthy food available - tinned fruit and the one piece of fresh fruit available (an apple) had a bite taken out of it... Read more

The only things that let the hotel down are the hard beds and the warm rooms at night otherwise it was very clean and well maintained, the staff were helpful and pleasant, the rooms were well laid out but didn't have a seating area. It was a short walk into the centro storico. The wifi was rather slow and kept dropping

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a total of four nights. Our experience was like this: Pro - close to the city center - walking distance of about 2 to 3 km - approximately 15-20 minutes; - close to a supermarket - where you can buy what you need or want - mind the closing time - 20:00; - safe area - we walked to and from the city center and train station - at 22:00 and 23:50 - all good; - if you come from the airport you take the AEROBUS and you get off at Ospedale Magiorre and walk towar...

Room is bit old looking but clean. I sleep well in all 6 nights. Only the pain for me is no kettle in the room but the hot drinks are available at the hotel lobby and is FOC until 12am. My friend was complaining the air conditional is noisy and make her cannot sleep but I do not have problem on it. Luckily it was not so hot at middle of June, so that I switch off the air conditioner. Breakfast is alright, everyday same breakfast (bacons and scrambled eggs are the only hot food). The rest is frui... Read more

Large suite like room with kitchen area, leather couches. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was very very nice. The location to the center was very nice half-mile. We would definitely choose to use his hotel again if we were in Bologna.

The rooms are old but very clean and adequate in size. The hotel is not that close to the city center, you have to take a 10 minutes bus ride. The bus station is right in front of the hotel which is great. We were actually expecting something generally better.
