Plans changed which required an overnight in Bologna. We booked last minute based on other TA members recommendations, the price and the location of the hotel. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was big, spotless and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the hotel felt secure. The room AC worked but didn't get the room cold. I did not call down to get service or a different room since I would only be in the room for a few hours and it was not especially hot. The location is great. When others say it is near the train station, it's true. It is literally right across the street. The street is busy but the rooms were quiet. It's an easy walk to loads of restaurants and the city center. If shopping is your thing there are hundreds of shops along the road to the older city center. ATMs are everywhere as well. If you just want a snack, slice of pizza, a coffee and don't want to eat in the hotel restaurant these are all available just steps from the main entrance to the hotel. We had to leave before the free breakfast in the morning to catch an early train so no comments on the breakfast.
