This hotel has a 4 star (Italian) rating. It would not compare to a 4 star hotel elsewhere and surprised they have this rating.
Many mornings people were left stranded, waiting for breakfast, whilst other guests finished as there is not enough tables for even half the guests at the hotel, and the breakfast buffet was unimaginative and limited.
Other issues included, a noisy guest or local apartment owner in the room above which wrecked our morning sleep ins, the mirror had rust on it, the sink kept clogging, there was limited restaurant options nearby without heading back towards the city centre (Piazza Maggiore) and there was not free newspaper or shuttle service to get guests out to the hotel or even tea/coffee facilities in the room. The hotel also didn't offer any directions on their website from the airport or train station, to enable us to determine if walking, a but, or taxi was our best option.
The bed was the biggest plus for this hotel; best so far on our trip but not enough to bring me back here again. For the price I'd suggest you stay closer to town centre and tourist attractions.
On a side note I'd double think about going to Bologna. Whilst it was nice enough there wasn't enough there to kept us interested compared to other Italian towns, for 3 days. I would suggest spending an extra day in the Cinque Terre or Florence rather than going to Bologna, you won't must much.
