“Comfortable, affordable and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2010

We spent 3 days in the Best Western Hotel in Bologna. On arrival the staff were friendly and spoke very good English, offering advice on various transport matters and tourist sites. The room was comfortable for the price, clean sheets every day and a very comfortable bath. Breakfast was comprehensive, unusually including hot bacon and eggs. The Hotels free WiFi was excellent.

The only possible drawback would be the location, a 15 min alk to the Railway Stn and 30 to the middle of town. There did appear to be a good bus service, but we had good weather and enjoyed the walk each day.

Overall really impressed with our stay - if we visit Bologna again then this is where we will stay - a very comfortable, Hotel with very helpfull staff.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2010

Bus to town was so simple, it was terrific--close and convenient and frequent, very short trip and easy to catch on the way back (watch out for sudden unannounced strikes though). Breakfast was good, sufficient, lots of fruit, great cappuccinos (eggs from mix not so great). Rooms were lovely size, good clean bathroom, good toiletries. But air conditioner was not located so that it could cool the room down adequately, that was a problem, and it was noisy. All the female front desk staff very efficient and friendly and made great restaurant recommendations and reservations; (there were good places nearby as well as a huge food supermarket); both male front desk staff incompetent and pretended not to notice you at length when you stood there waiting to ask for their help and then weren't much use.
Would stay there again because of price and location.

Good bed, clean room, good service, very ordinary breakfast sums it up. 15-20 minutes walk from the old town. Good value as this hotel is cheap compared to many others in Bologna.

Cosy hotel near the city centre, very good breakfast and very kind staff. You get really more than from 3 star hotel. Nice to remember.

Stayed there during the Book Fair. Walkable to the fairgrounds (30 minutes), but more convenient to take Bus #35 which takes you to the fairgrounds. About a 7 minute walk to the bus stop. Walkable to old city as well (20 easy minutes). The best thing about the hotel is that it's in a quiet residental setting. I had my window open every night (the room would not cool down to the temp I like) and I was never awakened by cars/sirens. The reception is very friendly, the breakfast, which is included offered something for everyone. Free internet access in your room (just ask for a passcode) or on their communal computer. Beds were firm but comfortable. Sheets were wonderful. Overall a very pleasant stay.

..don't let its location of "slightly out of town" put you off. Slap-bang adjacent to a bus-stop where a regular No.27 takes you into the city for Euro1. Warm & friendly staff...room was very good. Tea-making facilities on request.. free Internet facilities on request..(both at no extra charge)... nice fullsome Continental breakfast. Very quiet room... No gripes at all... a bed's a bed at the end of the day. ;-)
Bit of a weird, modern style to the building... but the architect probably got the "Best Making the most of the available land" award. Would recommend...and would go again.
