4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

Due to a conference in Bologna which recommended this place, I stayed here and weren't disappointed. It is very close to the univeristy part of the cities which means that a lot of young people are around and also a lot of restaurants and bars. This is actually quite convenient. One small restaurant which is close by and is mostly frequented by locals is the Osteria dell'Orsa.
Since Bologna is not such a big city everything is basically reachable by foot, e.g. the two towers. Unless you want to go to Santuario della Madonna di San Luca which is probably far away from any hotel in the city centre.
Now to the hotel itself. It is clean and the staff at the reception is friendly and speaks English. The room I got was pretty big with two single beds and a small bathroom. Both were in good shape, everything working including the TV and the wifi. Athough, sometime I had problems with the later one depending on how many people are connected.
The breakfast taks place in a kind of cellar which is kind of a drawback. In the corner runs the television with some italian news channel. Breakfast consists of course of the standard coffee, croissants, pastries, joghurt, fruits.. everything pretty standard but for the selection of pastries, which was kind of big. Compared to other hotels I have take residence in Italy.
I would definitely recommend the place despite the wifi and the breakfast in the cellar, because in the end it offers a good deal.

We've stayed here for two days in summer. We booked a quadruple room. It was clean but small for all the luggage. The staff of the hotel was very kind and helpful.

It is placed in the university area of the town. Well quality-prize relation.

This is a ok hotel in the party area of Bologna. Good price, friendly staff and ok breakfast. Good value for money. Not perfect for children, but we managed two extra beds in our room without big trouble

I sent a night at hotel university for a weekend on the town with 7 friends, we had 2 rooms, both nice and clean, the bathrooms are a bit small, but no bathroom is big enough for 4 girls in the same room! We reached Bologna by train and the hotel is close enough to be reached walking, but far enough from the station area. If you drive to Bologna I read the hotel can provide parking. It is in the city centre and close to all amenities and nightlife of a busy city as Bologna, but nevertheless it is quite enough to have a good night sleep. The staff was extremely kind and helpful, 4 of us were late for breakfast and they gave to the other 4 a tray with coffee, juice, croissants and cakes to take to our room, without us asking, because they saw we couldn't make it on time for breakfast! In the morning we were told there were problems and delays with trains and the receptionist kindly checked for us with the train site. Definitely to recommend.

There are 70,000 students in Bologna. This hotel is in the middle of the university area. The students carouse in the streets until 4:00 when the weather is warm. The hotel does not have any internal rooms where you are safe. I have heard that the Accademia is just as bad.

Room Tip: There are no internal rooms.

Although this is an older hotel, I found the public spaces and guestrooms to be clean, well maintained, and a great value. The staff is uniformly knowledgeable, helpful, and cheery.
