Quiet hotel close to the city center on the outskirts of Bologna - 20min by famous local bus no.25 for 1 EUR only. Bus stop just outside the hotel. Great & professional team at the reception desk, other staff also very friendly. Desktop & printer available in the lobby for guests. To improve - WiFi in all the rooms, not only in the lobby. Overall strongly recommend it!

it was four days long stay in this hotel. everything was excellent: friendly staff, clean and comfortable room and delicious breakfast. least comfortable is location of the hotel, but for sure it is impossible to find that cheap place closer to the city center. it's about 10 min. to the train station and 15 min to the city center with one bus from the bus stop just next to the hotel's front door.

Pros:
Room - size, quality of the bed, bathroom, very clean, tv lcd 21" with free programs + pay per view ( not use ), cleaning service every day. A free 0.5 l bottle of water everyday, coffee machine, with ness coffee and tea.
Breakfest - good decent choices, perfect to start the walking day
Check-in and check-out - fast & easy, good english at front desk
A real 3+* hotel and almost brand new.

Cons:
Temperature in room - max. 23 grd. from panel of the central heating system
Location - a little bit out of the center of Bologna, but with the bus nr. 25 you can rich the railstation in 15 min., and the city center in 20-25 min. with the same bus nr. 25. The bus station is just in the front of the hotel. 1 EUR for one ride, or 10 rides for 8,50 EUR.

Conclusion: 42 EUR for a double, this is the best hotel in Italy, We ever stayed !!

I've been twice at Ramada Encore Hotel with my husband and we both have enjoyed our stay; we loved the atmosphere, the courtesy, of the staff and the cleanliness, the food, we loved everything. Whenever we happen to be in Bologna we know where to stay: needless to say at Ramada Encore.

Wow, we were so amazed by how we were treated at the Ramada Encore. We had, again, researched the hotels on tripadvisor with a fine-tooth comb to find the best hotel for our family's trip up north for the holidays. We thought this was the perfect hotel for us, as far as value and comfort were concerned. The breakfast was 100 times better than the reviews (although they were very high reviews to begin with). It was the best hotel breakfast we had ever experienced (and we travel all over the world a lot). The blood orange juice was fantastic and I still crave it. The selection, the cleanliness and the presentation were all superb.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had adjoining rooms with our children. Everything was just perfect. The location, however, was a little outside the city. For us, it didn't matter a bit, as we had a car and loved to drive. We were in Bologna for two nights and used this hotel as a central hub for Venice, Padova, and the Ferrari Museum. It was the perfect location for us, but maybe not so much for someone without a car, needing to go into the city often.

Aside from all of that was the friendly front desk staff. We were treated well all over in Italy, but this was above and beyond. Unfortunately, I have been home long enough before getting around to writing the reviews, that I can't remember the helpful staff by name. But there were two girls, specifically that helped us a great deal. We had some bad luck these first few days of our holiday vacation and they saved our lives. The first day out, we drove to Venice. My husband mistook the green gasoline handle to indicate diesel fuel, which it wasn't. My husband, luckily, realized it quickly and knew we needed to pump out the gas. We were 15 minutes outside of Venice, stranded at a little gas station off the autostraude, in very cold, snowy conditions. Our rental car company was of no help at all, we couldn't find the tow truck numbers, etc. Luckily my sister (who lives in Rome) gave us an emergency cell to use, but it wasn't getting us anywhere without knowing Italian. We had a business card for the hotel and called them, as their English was PERFECT. They helped us find a tow truck company and made so many arrangements for us. The next day, when we checked out, we got to our hotel in Florence only to realize our briefcase was missing with all our passports. We called the hotel and they helped us find it (it has been left there), faxed all of the passports to our Florence hotel and talked them into still letting us stay there. We drove to get it from them the next morning. We dealt with three different front desk clerks and they were all amazing. From simple things like extra bedding, restaurant recommendations and reservations, to saving us in a few unfortunate circumstances. As much of a "budget" hotel as this is, it is a very high-class hotel in my humble opinion.
