Hotel Bologna's manager
As usual I followed the recommendations from trip advisor to find the hotel in Florence.
The hotel is ok , nothing fancy but large family room for at least 4 individuals. Price was reasonable and the location practical to reach the center. We even parked the car for free. The only issue is the rooms on the front are noisy and the isolation inside is not perfect.
Do not expect to sleep till 10am!!
Breakfast included in the price is well furnished, lots of choices but not at the level of a 4 Stars!!!
Enjoy your stay
We stayed at the Hotel Bologna for 3 nights.
Great first impression which was only enhanced by the end of our stay - a nice and tranquil area where the hotel is located, very friendly staff at the reception who greeted us and provided with all initial information we needed, clean and spacious room (we stayed in triple).
Buffet breakfast was served each morning and had a good variety of things to choose from.
All facilities worked perfectly well - shower, wifi, etc., the room service was regular.
We were also advised on some nice places to eat and drink out nearby. The young gentleman at the reception is very friendly and helpful and speaks quite a few languages which does make a huge difference!
The hotel is about 20 min walk to Duomo, the city centre. You cannot get lost as you follow just one straight line that leads to the city centre. There are loads of nice shops/restaurants/bars on the way too.. should you wish to avoid the crowds, you'll always find some nice places to go to near the hotel as well.
Finally, room rates are very affordable – hence the hotel will suit a wide range of holiday makers and will certainly provide with great value for great price.
Overall, we had an amazing stay in beautiful Florence and our pleasant experience with the Bologna hotel could not be better! Highly recommended!
Наше пребывание в отеле Bologna было исключительно приятным! Отличная комната, удобная и довольно просторная, дружелюбный персонал, близкое расположение к центру в очень спокойном районе в 20 минутах ходьбы от Дуомо. Мы ходили пешком каждый день, так как по пути к центру (от центра) всегда можно найти интересный бары/рестораны, если хочется избежать суматохи и туристов в центре.
Интернет, душ, все работает отлично! Убирают комнату регулярно.
На завтрак подают очень разнообразную еду и очень вкусную.
Цена очень приемлемая.
Рекомендую всем со средним бюджетом, ценящим комфорт и отличный Customer service!
Me ha encantado el hotel Bologna
El hotel esta en una excelentisima ubicacion - el barrio muy tranquilo y encantador. 20 minutos andando al centro.
La atencion al cliente en este hotel es excelente. Las habitaciones limpios, con mucho espacio. Todo funciona perfectamente – wifi, ducha etc.
El desayuno muy bueno con mucha variedad.
Si quereis tomar copa por la noche fuera del centro y ruido, hay muchos bares/restaurantes cerca del hotel. El personal es muy amable, os puede aconsejar unos sitios buenos para salir.
Excelente calidad-precio.No hay ninguna crítica. Lo recomiendo mucho!
We like this location very much: safe, not too touristy (so quiet at night), with a busy shopping/dining street 1 block away. Our triple was neither the smallest nor the largest of the ones we had this trip (the nice balcony would have been a big plus in warmer weather). The room and bathroom were quite clean. The beds were a little older and less comfortable than we might have liked. The internet was a bit unpredictable: I always had 5 bars, but throughput was often low. The breakfast selection was adequate, though the coffee tasted almost instant (in any event, not made in the nice Faema E61 machine in the lobby area). Overall, a good budget hotel in an otherwise overpriced city.
i stayed in the hotel for 4 nights.
good, spacious rooms, good price, free wifi, good breakfast. everything was really clean, the staff was super friendly.
it is slightly far from the city center- 2.5 km, which is a 25 minute walk.
there is a bus close to the hotel, but with its frequency, we prefered to walk to and from the center.
after that, we rented a car and the hotel's pros really came to life-
going out of florence was really easy- the south exit to the highway is really close,
finding parking close to the hotel was easy- as this is your regular neighborhood, and parking from 8om to 8 am was FREE- sweet !
PLUS, you have 2 great restaurants within a 150 meter from the hotel: Osteria Coco Trippone, where many locals dine: great food, freah and tasty and really cheap; and Il Barrino- which is more fancy and expensive, and is open until late. BTW, across the street from Coco trippone, there is a great gelateria, with tons of flavors to choose from.
as the hotel is not in the city center, prices are cheaper, it feels more local, so expect things to close earlier, and not for too much evening buzz. we didnt mind- we enjoyed our stay.
We stayed here on our last night in Florence. It's a no-frills, budget-friendly hotel (for Florence) but we enjoyed our one-night stay at Hotel Bologna. The room was comfortable, the staff was helpful and friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was decent.
It's a little out of the way (about a 15 min walk to the center) but the neighborhood was nice and only a quick taxi to the train station.
