AC Hotel Bologna
Ranked #41 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Here 4 days. Easy access to Bologna, either taxi or car or bus. But, it is also great for day trips. We did Ravenna, San Marino, and San Leo from here on eady day trips. Rimini is easy as are the famous cities, Modens, Parma, Reggio. The plus is Marriott consistency, and, the hotel restaurant, good local food.

Room Tip: Get a room on the north side for quiet and view.

My two employees and I stayed here for 1 night before our flight back to the USA from Bologna Italy.

Very clean and neat rooms and much larger than what is typical in Europe. It is nice to find something comfortable at the end of the trip.

Only downside, which is typical of European hotels is not enough parking. We used the garage parking which was an additional 15 Euros for the night.

Would definitely stay here again.

This was our second AC on this trip, as we had stayed at Arezzo the night before. It was clean and the rooms were nicely configured. Good breakfast in the morning. No Staff offered a nice dinner suggestion, which was spot on for quality and service. Nicely done!

This brand hotel is apparently Marriott's budget brand in Italy. We actually stayed in two of these during our visit - Bologna and Padova. They are nice hotels that are located in the more industrial areas. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was comparable to most of other hotels we stayed at. One thing to consider when booking these hotels, is that Wi-Fi is not included in several of the pricing options. It is an additional charge. Then, to make things a little more complicated, if you purchase the Wi-Fi, it is only good on one device. If there are two people in the room who want internet access at the same time, then you have to purchase two separate services. In addition, the device you first use with the password is the only device that will have access. And the Wi-Fi service was not cheap. I would definitely stay here again because it was clean and comfortable but might look for other options first.

this hotel was picked due to the price and the name of Marriott. But I am very disappointed the moment I checked in. The front desk staff was not friendly and I didn't feel welcomed.
The hotel is modern and clean. However, there wasn't complimentary tea and coffee provided in the room, not even kettle for boiling water.
Decent breakfast but the waiter/waitress weren't friendly and not in sight. I stood at the restaurant entrance for quite awhile and wasn't attended.

Highly recommend that you stay at this hotel. We have stayed at two Marriott properties this week prior to our arrival here - this one is the most modern and stylish of the three properties. The staff is most helpful and the room is clean and comfortable. It is ashame that the surrounding area suggests not so good an area, but the hotel is a shining star that is the pride of the neighborhood!

This was our second time staying overnight in this hotel as a stop-over for our driving trip in Europe. İ was surprised and disappointed that the wi-fi in the rooms is still not free! We were in another AC hotel in Zaragosa and the wi-fi is free. Otherwise everything else is good AC standard as expected.
