Best Western City Hotel
Ranked #29 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Reviewed 12 March 2014

When touring around Italy by car it is wise to remember that city centres are frequently pedestrians only and often accessed by convoluted one-way systems. This hotel is mid way between centre and outskirts and boasts an underground car park making it perfect for our purposes.

As it is primarily a business hotel during the week, I got our weekend room at a bargain price of just over £50. The room itself was plain and functional, but with a very comfortable bed; the bathroom had an excellent shower. Wi-Fi was free and when I had difficulty with my connection, a kind member of staff offered to help. All members of staff that I encountered spoke perfect English and were eager to help us with planning our sightseeing.

Although it is a bit of a walk into the centre, it is only about five minutes in a taxi and if you are on a budget there is a bus stop nearby.

Breakfast the following morning was a varied and substantial buffet, only let down by indifferent coffee. Overall a good place to stay especially if you are driving.

Basicly it's ok for a business Trip over one or two nights. I had a really small room and the television doesn't worked at all. the internet / wi-fi is really slow and to work or watch a movie online, really not that easy. The Reception and everthing else it's pretty ok, but nothing to top here.

Very high quality room and bathroom at low price. I stayed one night when on route to Ancona. They had secure free parking, free wi if and the room including breakfast was only 68 euros. Very polite staff. Restaurant was only average and slightly overpriced so I would recommend staying here but eating out instead.

We traveled to Bologna on a holiday weekend so we were unable to get a hotel closer to the center of town. This was an inconvenience since Bologna is small and walkable and we did not have a car as we arrived by train. For business, it might be acceptable but for touring the distance from the center meant relying too much on taxis so we could conserve our energy for walking inside the city center. The room we got was small considering we were "upgraded" to a superior room. We received a handicap room without being told in advance which I found to be quite unusual compared to other experiences with hotels. Finally, the TV should have at least one English language channel. I guess this is a reflection of Bologna's appeal mostly to Italian tourists. Breakfast was ok.

We were pleasantly surprised by this inexpensive hotel in Bologna. The room was large by European standards and everything was very clean. We did not use the restaurant in the evenings as the delights of Bologna called but breakfast was very good. Our package offered free parking, wifi and breakfast, all were available. The staff were friendly and helped with directions, restaurants, and tourist attractions. The hotel is not close to the city but a no 27 bus took us to the station which is then a short walk to the city and all the major shops.

Room Tip: We chose a twin room and it was slightly larger than the double our friends had. Walk in robe was a...

Had a wonderful stay in Hotel and was given free upgrade as we were away on our Honeymoon.
Staff were great and we were given lots of information of what to see and do.
Room was beautiful with large bath, spotless, fresh and air conditioned room.
Would most certainly stay again!

Overall this a very good Hotel, We were just passing by Bologna and it work well for us. The hotel has parking and Internet and the breakfast was very good. The only complain and I give them the benefit of the though that things happen. We had a family room at the top floor which was two rooms together but the AC was not working and for an August date it was hard. But things happen and I guess this was our turn.
