“Terrific Value, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Of the 6 hotels --- 3 of which were 4-star rated --- my wife and I stayed in during our 16 day Italy trip, the Savhotel in bologna was overall the best, and the least expensive! The room was very clean, well equipped, and attractive. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the hotels location, a 15 minute walk to the train station, or 25 minute walk to Piazza Maggiore, is perfect for someone willing to walk a bit to reach the more popular attractions. The hotel's restaurant was very good, and the breakfast that came with the room was excellent. We'd definitely stay there again. Overall it deserves an 'A'. Note: when I first saw the hotel's name I thought it was some sort of cut-rate place something like a Motel 6, or Economy Lodge in the U.S. It most definitely is not a cut rate style hotel even though it's prices are very reasonable indeed!

Room Tip: I suspect all the rooms are excellent. The ambiance of the place is that of professional competence...

Very nice hotel, clean and very modern inside and out.

The hotel is more of a business type hotel than a rustic Italian style so if that is what you are after it doesn't suit. The hotel does have secure underground parking but €10 a night a bit steep for a long stay. Area seems a bit rough to leave a rental car outside though.

Great breakfast and nice bar facilities in hotel and was impressed with the food, the staff at this hotel are very friendly and happy to help with advice and guidance.

Room was comfy but no air conditioning at all and it is turned off completely out of summer so we couldn't have it turned on, our room was 26 degrees at time at night (opening windows helped)

Would definitely stay again though, it is a brilliant base camp for visiting other parts of the region as near the main road/autostrade and also close to the train station.

As we promised In our last review, as we have visited Bologna once again we have enjoyed our second stay in the SavHotel. This time we stayed for one week and once again were very impressed at how very welcome we were made to feel especially by the staff on reception. The hotel offers very good value for money and nothing was too much trouble for all the hotel staff members. A very special thank you to Chiara on reception who promptly responded to our emails prior to our stay, and our requests on arrival. Once again it remains to say when we next return to Bologna the SavHotel will be our number one hotel of choice, all its amenities, along with its quiet location makes it perfect with a high standard of service to match!

Room Tip: Superior room upgrades are worth the extra cost.

Great hotel 20 min or so walk from the towers in the center of the city.
The staff were really helpful and even offered us umbrellas as we wanted to walk into the center, (you also take a short bus ride). They also have bikes you can borrow.

The room was modern and clean, and the breakfast was excellent and really fresh.

Room Tip: We got a premium double which was good.

Very nice hotel, staff very friendly and helpful. It was quite a long way from the station and town, but the weather was good so it was a good way to get exercise. There is a small fitness room which I found useful. All hotels were too hot for me but being in a quiet area open windows were no problem. Breakfast was fairly standard with a reasonable choice.

I booked in to this hotel after a mishap with another, after booking I was there within 20mins, the staff greeted me in a friendly manor and found my booking with no issue (not to mention the fact the foyer had a nice "Hilton" feel). I originally booked for 2 nights but loved it so much I extended my stay by two nights - again very helpful staff and the rate and my room stayed the same. The hotel has a 5 star feel to it - clean comfortable, decent sized rooms with big bathrooms, the buffet breakfast is excellent and the hotel restaurant is also a nice place to dine with good food, the hotel although not overly Central is a flat 15 min walk to town or a 5 min taxi ride. Their fitness facility is good and the rooftop terrace is a nice place for a wine. All in all I was very impressed, the value for money is excellent and I would definitely return
