Reviewed 19 March 2014

Great location ,,, walking distance to all the main attractions and the train station ,,,, Considering what some hotels in the same area charge it is very good valve ,,,, a good sized fridge in the room which would be good for keeping drinks cold , cured meats or cheese if you are there in the summer ,,, there is a small-medium sized supermarket about 40-50 metres away ... The breakfast is your standard European fare of any two - three star hotel ,,, I found the hotel to be noisy when trying to sleep but all the hotels in the area will be just as noisy ... There are two Irish bars that show all the football matches within 7-8 minutes walk away .. A taxi from the airport cost 20 Euros but it was a Saturday and luggage is charged at 50 cents per bag ...
If I was going back to Bologna I would stay here again

Another hotel well located and of good value.

Room a good size and the bathroom was good as well. Well located to a laundromat, too, if you need to do washing. Only downside is that wifi is paid and not cheap either.

Breakfast buffet was not included so we did our own thing for breakfast. They seem to be pretty strict on having food and drinks in the room which can be a downside if you want to do your own thing for breakfast.

We never really have a hotel booked when we visit Bologna and for whatever reason this time - a lot of the hotels were booked up. So we stumbled upon Holiday Hotel and they had a room at a price we could afford so we took it. The nice part was it was more like a studio apartment so we had more than enough room - but we hardly spent any time there.

The staff was super friendly - helping us read the time table for the bus to airport.

I don't know we would go back there - but if you are looking for a clean room - they have that covered. It is a great location - close to the train station and the central parts of town.

Also, there is a food store at the top of the street which is great to pick up supplies like water, wine and snacks for less.

This is a decent hotel fairly centrally located in Bologna. The facilities are a bit better than average. On the plus side: room is clean and of a decent size. Bathroom good, with ceramic marble tiles on the walls. No shelf in the shower to put down soap or shampoo, however. My neighbors were quite inconsiderate, talking loudly in the hallways and laughing at 3:30 in the morning which I did not appreciate. Breakfast is ok, with some ham and bread or cereal or cornettos.

Be careful walking on the Via Indepenza, where a woman seemed to want a cigarette, but then put her hands down my front pocket to steal my wallet. Thankfully I felt her hand and grabbed it.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the hallway may be quieter.

We only had one night at this hotel and chose it for its proximity to the city and to the train station for the next days trip to Florence. The guy on duty when we arrived mid afternoon was a real gem with lots of helpful tips and information plus he spoke very good English which was a bonus for us. The room was adequate if a bit small but was sufficient for what we needed. There were loads of places nearby to eat and drink. The bathroom was ok but the shower very small- I wouldn't ant to shower in it every day as it was almost impossible to turn round. Breakfast was very good with a large choice of cereals, fruit, pastries, bread etc etc and as much tea or coffee that you wanted. In all, a good place to break a journey maybe ask for a larger bathroom/shower if you plan to stay longer (or not shower of course!!).

Room Tip: Sall lift to top floors so no problem with any room but check out bathroom size!

Just back from two nights stay at Holiday Hotel Bologna as part of a holiday in Italy.

Can confirm previous reviews. Approach down a side street not promising but Hotel Holiday offers excellent value at about £40 per night for two including breakfast. Room was clean and comfortable with TV and minibar.
Staff were all wonderful and helpful. The concierges recommendations for eating out are a must!
Excellent location for all town centre attractions.
