Reviewed 14 August 2014

It's not clear whether it is still a Sheraton or not.

The room price is reasonable, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. It's near the airport, but it's not easy to get into the city and the restaurant has a limited menu choice.

Service was good. Airport shuttle bus every hour daily. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. But lack of atmosphere; takes away from the hotel. Hotel seems tailored for business guests more than us ordinary guests. We arrived at 3.30 and were told we could not be served sandwich or any food unless we ordered from room service which was a very limited menu and incurred a €10 service charge. We could order a bottle of wine from the bar and were given complimentary breadsticks and crackers which sufficed. Wifi was only available in lobby. €10 charge for room wifi. This hotel has lots of potential, but needs to work on catering for non business guests. There is a beautiful authentic italian retaurant within walking distance from the hotel which was a very pleasant find. well worth a visit. !! Ristorante Nonno Rossi.

In the middle of nowhere. The shuttle only operates during certain times so if you have an early flight you have to pay for a taxi. That taxi costs 15 euros which is close to $30 for a 5 minute ride. The food at the restaurant is very bad for what you pay for it. You also have to pay for wi-fi in your room. Not worth it.

Fortunately, we just had to spend a single night at this hotel due to cancellation of our flight. The hotel was close to the airport, but other than that there was absolutely nothing to do in the neighborhood. The hotel was cold and uncharming - as was the staff. The hotel had nothing to offer - no pool, no outside restaurant, no activities. The room was actually ok, but the 'balcony' was only 1x1 metre and had no furniture, so no chance of spending time outdoor. We took a taxi downtown (18 Euro) which was a very good idea. Breakfast was average. The staff all over the hotel gave the impression that they didn't enjoy being there at all - a very odd experience.

The location of the hotel is perfect if you just need a bed for the night and have an early flight out of Bologna. But if you have time to spend, go for something else ........

Despite of not being too impressed, I must say the hotel is in good condition. Looks outdated.

The staff is friendly and it is conveniently located close to Bologna's airport.

I did, however; thought the price was too high for the service they offer. Breakfast was not included in my fee, and dinner was pretty expensive (18€ for a caprese and a beer), internet is also an extra at 19€ for 24 hours, with free WiFi only in the reception area.
The room was spacious and with a huge, comfortable bed and a nice big bathroom.
Free airport shuttle, that takes about 5 minutes. Very convenient.

Pleasantly surprised at this Hotel. We took the shuttle from airport. Turn left out of main exit towards rental car parking, 100 yards where the road opens up for coach and bus parking is where you will catch the Hotel shuttle van. All marked up in the Sheraton logos. If you e mail the hotel they will provide you with shuttle timetables for airport and the railway station. Trip to the Hotel was less than 5 minutes, but be aware that the hotel is tucked away around the back of the airport with nowhere to go for a walkabout, so effectively you are stuck in the hotel. We decided to utilise the shuttle by not hiring our car straight away but to catch the train to Venice for the day. We got a Taxi back to Hotel from the station which cost us 14€. Fantastic way to see Venice for a day. We used hotel shuttle the following morning to pick up hire car at 0830.
Staff were very friendly and efficient, booked in without any queue. Room was spacious and comfortable but above all very clean, oh and no aircraft noise at all. We did have an evening meal here which was not that bad but not that good if you know what I mean. For the price we paid (did not go for the breakfast) we cannot fault this hotel, it was perfect for our agenda. Shame no pool but hey. Highly recommend this hotel for stopover because of position to airport and the above.

We only used the hotel due to British Airways messing our flights about but it was excellent for us.We hung about on our trip up from Rivabella as the Booking.com website(as others do) said the check-in time is 15:00 but you can check-in from 13:00,had we known that you could have got there earlier and possibly toured the area.We received a room upgrade for some reason(which was nice) to the 5th floor and the room was nice & big with a small fridge & a large tv that had BBC News & CNN channels.The meal at night though very expensive for our tastes it was really nice. Didn't bother with breakfast because we saw it cost 25 Euros each.The shuttle to & from the airport we could not fault.The Wi-Fi can only be accessed in the lounge and not the bedrooms?.
