We book this hotel at the time of a fair in Bologna. Room rate (240 euro) was outrageous for this hotel located in the outskirts of Bologna Historical Center (25 min by bus). Very noisy hotel: you can hear your neighbours TV, the people speaking in the corridor through the door, the maids yealing at each other in the early morning and the planes (the airport is a short taxi ride). We could not use the free Wifi because it was not reaching our floor. The TV screen is small and channels in other language than italian are limited, most fims are paying. The good thing about this hotel is that people at the reception desk and breakfast room are very kind & helpful. The hotel is clean. Room & bathroom are normally sized. Breakfast buffet is OK and included in the rate as well as coffee/tea breaks. Overall, this good 3-star hotel, definitely not a real 4-star, would have been perfect at a decent room rate. We had the impression that management was exploiting the situation as all other hotels were booked in town for the special fair. Avoid those dates if you would like to pay normal hotel rates as simple tourists. The city is entertaining & the food is delicious. We recommend drinking hot chocolate topped with thick cream (pana) at La Torinesa, the best in town. We also ended up at a small trattoria "il Tinello" where food is home made (20 euro/pax including Proseco wine).
