“First visit to Bologna”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This was a first visit to Bologna,and,of course, to this hotel. We chose the hotel for it's excellent position between the historic city centre and the railway station. In this respect the hotel was perfect. The hotel is comfortable and offers most of the facilities that the average tourist would require. Breakfast was buffet style and generally very good; it could be improved if the dining-room staff smiled more readily! Whilst there we discovered that the hotel is used by some tour companies. This creates no problems except that the party will all want their breakfast at the same time. Overall we would certainly return to the hotel on another visit to Bologna. It is good value and does it's job very well. We found Bologna less busy with foreign visitors than other cities but a very useful centre - it is well placed to visit Ravenna and Parma and is an interesting and historic city itself. Prices in restaurants and bars generally less than in other popular tourist cities.

Room Tip: Some rooms face an inner courtyard garden and will be quieter than street side rooms.

The hotel is in walking distance from the train station and to the main square/many sights. Many shops and restaurants around. Rooms are comfortabel and clean, staff helpful and friendly (speak English as well). Varied breakfast buffet. It lacks a bit of charme (if you are looking for Italian style, this is not the place) but you get really good value for the money.

Hotel is on the bus route from the airport, stop is only 100 yards away. Easy walk to all the attractions. Clean and comfortable room with air conditioning, which was essential as August temperatures were in the high 80's. Great breakfast. Free wifi. Friendly helpful staff.

Stopping at the Internazionale was a pleasure from start to finish. The location was perfect in the centre of Bologna only a short walk from the Railway Station making the commute from the Airport to the Hotel easy.
The room was clean, quiet, spacious and well furnished. The air conditioning was silent, accurate and very effective. The bathroom was luxurious and the shower gave a consistent temperature and force from turning on to turning off. The bed was very supportive but soft enough to be extremely comfortable - no aches on waking up in the morning. The staff were pleasant but not intrusive and the breakfast choices were numerous from cooked English Breakfast to cereals, pastries and lots in-between. This is the best review I have given a hotel in all my travels.

This hotel was a 5 min walk from train station. We used this as a base to travel to other towns in the area to be near the train. It did not look like much from the outside shopping street downtown but inside it was spacious and charming. Our room was HUGE and it had all conveniences of a 4 to 5 star hotel with its old world charm. It had a nice large bathroom and Flat screen TV,frig, and large bed. Breakfast was excellent and very classy.
Front desk did not speak much english but we managed OK. Many European guests at the hotel and you can walk to everywhere you need to go. Hotel is located in a local shopping area with many restaurants and little convenient food stores.

This was our second visit to this hotel and it did not disappoint. Our room was large and well furnished and the staff were friendly and helpful. There was plenty of choice at breakfast though the food on the hotplate could have been refilled more frequently. We particularly liked the fact that breakfast was available from 7am until 11am. The hotel is on the main shopping street of the city, so is excellent for restaurants and bars and close to bus and train station.

Room Tip: If you prefer a quiet room ask for one at the rear of the hotel. Smoking rooms are available on requ...

Charming and tranquil hotel ideally situated halfway between the railway station and piazza maggiore (main square) about 10 mins each way. On the Main Street via independentia surrounded by shops and restaurants. Small outdoor courtyard with a few tables and chairs. Good reception area with breakfast room and lounge/bar on the half landing. Good sized rooms and bathroom with shower. Mini bar, air con in room. Think bed linen was changed every day it certainly always seemed fresh. Lovely large fluffy towels changed every day. Good choice at breakfast with 2/3 hot dishes also. Very attentive staff. Everything was spotlessly clean. Reception staff were excellent, efficient yet friendly and helpful. Gave us good suggestions for restaurants. We took the airport shuttle 6 euros each and the bus stops outside the hotel on its way to the station. Going back to the airport fairly early we decided to take a taxi as it was only 15 euros. Take the train to Florence 35 mins (not cheap but worth it). Also enjoyed the tourist bus which gave us a good overview of the city and spectacular views from the surrounding hills. If you are there Friday or Saturday dont miss the massive market across from the hotel great bargains!
It was a lovely oasis to return to after a day sightseeing in the hot sun! Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Staff said the courtyard rooms were the quietest but we wanted a street view and as there is double...
