4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2009

Loved this modern hotel with good service. Breakfast buffet was adequate, location was decent, room was very trendy and comfortable. They trouble with their internet connections.

I booked a junior suite in the beginning of May for end of July. Two days before arrival I got a confirmation mail welcoming me and my partner to the hotel, so I guessed everything was ok. However, when we turned up, it took time to find our booking and there were no more junior suites left, so we only got a double room. The staff was not very polite or service-minded. However, the room was ok, except that the fridge did not work and the bathroom floor got all wet when we used the shower.

My partner had also sent an e-mail to the hotel the day before arrival to order flowers and a bottle of prosecco in the room, as it was my birthday. Of course there were nothing there and we never got a reply to the e-mail.

Just on the second day of our stay, after I had sent an e-mail to the hotel (from the hotel room) the lady at the front desk apologized and we were told we could have a friend drink in the bar (we had a great Bellini!).

I also realized that other guests had the same problem as we had when arriving, so there seems to be a problem with the booking system and the staff sorts it out in not an elegant way.

The wellness centre did not work either, so it was closed. As was the restaurant, btw.

The location is not great (busy road and not in the nicest area), so next time we will find somewhere else.

The hotel was on a very busy road and directly opposite the main bus station, the room we had on the 2nd floor faced the road, it was noisy and we could not have the window open.

The room was very small and there were no drawers for clothes and only 4 hangers on the small clothes rail. The air conditioning was no able to cool the room below 26/27 degs even after it had been on all night so it was very hot and the staff didn't seem to care that it was not working.

Breakfast was ok, there is not enough seating for all the guests staying at the hotel to eat at the same time so we had to wait for a table to become free.

For a hotel that says it's technology enabled it was very poor. The radio via the TV was not working and there was no speaker in the bathroom to listen to the news. No ipod or mp3 connection to play any music. The Internet PC in the lobby was so infected with Viruses i was scared to use it in case my login credential were stolen!! When i mentioned that the PC was dangerous to the staff they said they already knew about the issue but had failed to tell me when i asked to use it.

Overall a terrible hotel in a lovely city.

This hotel is a solid 4 star design hotel located between the Bologna's train station and the entrance to the historic centre.

Everything was as it was supposed to be in a 4 star hotel: the staff is welcoming, everything is clean, presentable, quiet and enjoyable rooms, great breakfast.

If I was to return to Bologna, I would definitely stay there again, as it combines a good location, with great service and price.

We stayed one night at 4 Viale Design Hotel in a beautifully designed triple room. The rooms were luxurious and modern, with very comfortable furnishings. We appreciated the amenities, e.g., fresh flowers, nice toiletries. The staff were young, helpful, and highly efficient, printing out train schedules and opening hours for museums extremely quickly. Their wireless internet worked well. Breakfast was good. Shower stall design may lead to water on the floor.

Since we planned to stay in Bologna for only one night and were travelling by train the 4Viale was a perfect choice: it's a 5 minute walk to the train station and it's a 15 minute walk though the main commercial street and historical center to the city core.

It provides an actual 4 star service (by international standards) and breakfast for the price of a room in a two star "locanda" or "albergo" 5 minutes away, making it probably the best value in Bologna.

It would be our first choice if we visit Bologna again.

We stayed over the New Year holiday for 4 nights, overall the hotel was very good. The hotel is ideally located near the train station, and we spent 1 day in Florence travelling on Eurostar. The walk into centre of the city was 15 to 20 minutes. Room was very comfortable with air conditioning. Plenty of choice of food for breakfast.
