“Centrally located, very comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

I was surprised that this is only a 2-star hotel because I would have thought it was a 3-star when I entered our room, and particularly after I enjoyed their lavish breakfast. This was a very comfortable, quiet place to stay just 2 blocks from the towers and the cathedral, and less than a mile from the Bologna Centrale train station. The desk staff are quite customer service oriented, too.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. Location in the middle of town.
We were stayed there with our two small children for one night and the four-bed room was very spacious. Perfect for a short trip! They were able to provide a crib for the baby.
Would definitely recommend to others.

Good sized room, uncomfortable bed,
Bathroom was tiny, shower, not meant for human use. Grimy and tiny. Hot and cold mixer was very difficult either boiling hot or cold, in between was impossible. The shower also wouldn't hold, kept on dropping down. So showering was a complete nightmare.
Breakfast was good.
Very centrally located.
Staff very friendly.
The corridors were a bit depressing, and the elevator up was a bit scary as the door wouldn't close properly.

Excellent location for exploring central Bologna. Just a 2 minute walk from the main square. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Room more than adequate as a base for exploring and good shower to clean up after sightseeing. Bed on the hard side for me but that is a personal choice (room 16 triple with view of old town). Wide choice of typical Italian breakfast items. Coffee excellent!

This was a great hotel, location excellent. Way better than expected for a 2 star! The staff were really helpful and friendly. There was a lift so no stairs with heavy luggage. Comfortable lounge and satellite tv.

We stayed here six nights, each day took a train to Parma, Ravenna, Florence etc. The staff was terrific, very helpful on the trains and where to catch buses and suggested a couple of fabulous restaurants. We asked for a quiet room, was given one, view not much but quiet, and clean....bed just a little hard for me. Breakfast had quite an assortment of items to choose from, breads, cheeses, meats, loved their cappuccino machine! Would stay here again for price and location.

Room Tip: We had a room on what I would call the back of the hotel, it was quiet.

I paid a bit more money to not have the non a/c room with shared bathroom. I agree with Ann's review from June 2014 that the fact about the cheapest room without a/c was not communicated properly.

I was instead given the handicapped room which I did not need but it did have the a/c and private bathroom, but the only drawback is after taking a 5 minute shower, the entire bathroom was flooded - a safety hazard, especially to someone who IS handicapped. The a/c worked well, and I didn't have a problem with the wifi other than a few occasional stall outs. The staff is very nice. I wasn't feeling well, and they prepared me tea with honey in the late evening. Breakfast was like any other in Italy. Great location - I couldn't ask for better. Not noisy at all. I will stay again if in Bologna.

Room Tip: Be sure if you choose cheapest option that you are in a/c room with private bathroom unless you don...
