People working in the hotel were very helpful and kind. They provided useful information. The hotel is not too far from the center by walk. There is supermarket and a good pizzeria nearby. The room was not too big for 3 persons. There was a continuous problem with the toilet. It was very hard to find parking place, although we... More

We found the Hotel Bologna through our travel agency. It turned out to be a clean and cosy hotel. Our room was high and spacious and we had a wide view of the suburbs of Florence at the back. Breakfast was very good and the staff very friendly. The lady who took care of breakfast was very helpful. The city... More

This is a pretty basic hotel but with a good location in a pleasant neighborhood near the edge of the historic district. The breakfast was so-so, rooms were ok. But the staff and in particular Marco were always pleasant and helpful.

Clean, spacious room with comfortable beds. Great continental breakfast with plenty of choice. Friendly staff, will call taxis and made recommendations for local restaurants. Only downside, a good 20 -30 minute walk to most attractions and decent bars and restaurants, We stayed in August so very, very, hot! Not great if you don't fancy walking in the intense heat.

They even helped us rent a car, doing all the leg work for us while we were out & about enjoying the city! The hotel is about a 15min walk from the city center, but if you walk along... More

A bit away from the train station but they will call a taxi for you, and you can be at the station in a few minutes. Taxi to the station was never more than 10 euros. Breakfast buffet was nice-large variety of meats, fruit, cereal, pastries. A/C did not work, but perhaps it's 'unplugged' until summer. Quiet street, beautiful balcony... More
