We read several reveiws and consulted with others who had stayed in Bologna before selecting this hotel. We were not disappointed. The location was great, the staff friendly and helpful, and the price was very competitive for the City. The "delux rooms" (which we had for about 30 euro more) have a bit more space and views overlooking a plaza and of the "two towers". We were pleased, but we saw the standard rooms and they were quite adequate as well. Breakfast is included in the rate, and there are tables on a terrace patio with great views, as well. (It's also nice for an afternoon tea or wine.) Most major sites are within easy walking distance from the hotel, and traffic noise is reduced since it is an "restricted area." [One tip --- if you are driving, be sure to contact the hotel by phone or email before arriving by so they can provide you the code for opening the gate to the restricted area.] Overall a very positive experience and a hotel we would be happy to return to.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Maggiore Bologna is a welcoming place and we deeply take care of our guests. Our aim is to make you "Feel at Home". The slender eight storey building which houses the hotel rises up in a very unusual place, a connection point between the city centre of Bologna and the Emilian productive areas, a lively and hardworking area rich in Italian excellences and multiculturalism. The hotel is in a central location, out of the controlled traffic zone, next to the Ospedale Maggiore, at 1.5 km from the historic centre (easily accessible by bus or by bike), at ten minutes from the airport, the Ducati headquarters, the Unipol Arena centre, next to important companies and important scientific and cultural centres such as the Opificio Golinelli and the MAST. It is easily accessible from the motorway and the main communications routes and we offer a free parking service. Core of our idea of welcoming are the central location, our friendliness and the attention to every detail. As well as wanting you to "Feel at Home", we also commit for a sustainable mobility. Among our facilities you'll find a free parking service, a shuttle service, a bycicle rental service, both for traditional bikes and e-bikes, bus tickets at our reception desk. Finally, we'll be very happy to give you information on events not to be missed and places to see in the city and province. ... more less
